1994 - O.J. Simpson drove his Ford Bronco across Los Angeles with police in pursuit and millions of people watching live on television. After the slow speed chase ended Simpson was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
It seemed surreal in the moment. What the heck was O.J. thinking?! We watched, in silence and in the days, weeks and months to come, what started with a slow police chase continued into the trial of the decade. O.J. Simpson's life started into a downward spiral after the trial and he now sits in a prison cell for unrelated charges.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of that infamous chase, and we're all still shaking our heads- in disbelief, shock and at the profound loss that stemmed from this incident. This was bigger than sports. It was about relationships, the judicial system, domestic violence and the issue of race and socio-economic status.
Twenty years later. What have we learned?
