Evidence doesn’t win the day. Jurors go with the narrative that makes sense. We’re here to tell a story. Our job is to tell that story better than the other side tells theirs.
You’re a man who loves people, who people love right back. That’s you. You’re a fighter. You’re a runner. And when you get knocked down, I need you to pop right back up like you know you can and keep going, because this right here, this right here, O.J. Simpson, is the run of your life.
We get one black juror, just one… and I’ll give you a hung jury. When I give you a hung jury… you are going home. You’re going home.
Today we make them think these cops lie about little things, so that tomorrow we can show them they lie about big things. Even if they’re doing it for what they think is right. That’s where we pull. That’s where the daylight’s at.
The most important thing is the story. Now, Marcia’s got the ball and she’s telling a story, but instead of responding to her story, or refuting the story, we need to be telling a more credible one. We need to gather the jury around a fire and tell a better story. We need to make them believe.
