It's pretty bad that someone is declared innocent in a criminal trial, yet he can be declared guilty in a civil suit and ordered to pay millions. It's terrible if he did it, hell it's terrible when anyone is murdered, but no one should have to go through any other trials on the same case after being proven innocent!

I'm hardly a Blake fan, but I'm totally unimpressed with most of what passes for the criminal justice system and it's sister the civil courts. Lawyers and politicians have hijacked this country.

Although I believe that O. J. Simpson was guilty,
I don't believe that a person should be tried in
civil court for the same crime after being
acquitted in the criminal court.

The problem is that if one of your loved ones is murdered, you surrender all your rights to sue for compensation. If the state bungles the trial or you get a starstruck jury, you are SOL.

Bobby-Robert Blake who played Little Beaver in the Red Ryder cowboy movies is the same one that went on trial for murdering his wife.
