  A big old F.U. to non-wife killing citizens everywhere
Oddly Enough News Article | Reuters.com: "LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles has renamed a public school after Johnnie Cochran, the late criminal defense lawyer who helped clear 'Trial of the Century' murder defendant O.J. Simpson.

School district officials voted unanimously for the name change on Tuesday, saying Cochran, who attended the former Mt. Vernon Middle School as a boy, was an 'extraordinary, superb lawyer with movie-star celebrity status.'

But the sister of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, whom the former star football player and actor was charged with stabbing and slashing to death, said she was stunned by the move.

'It's in bad taste,' Denise Brown told Reuters. 'Yeah, he was a great defense attorney. But what about your moral obligation to children and society?'

Cochran, who died last year of a brain tumor at age 67, was the lead attorney for Simpson. He accused Los Angeles police of framing his client because he was black and famously told the jury, 'If it doesn't fit, you must acquit,' in reference to a bloody glove found at Simpson's house."
