Reporters and camera people coverage for what a local writer called the “Super Bowl of murder trials.” Christopher Darden, the prosecutor representing the state, led off the prosecution’s opening statement by labeling Simpson as an abusive husband and a jealous lover of Nicole Brown Simpson. Darden told the jurors, “if he couldn’t have her, he didn’t want anybody else to have her.” The next day, Johnie Cochran, OJ’s lawyer, gave an opening statement for the defense in which he presented a confused timeline of events and suggested he was so crippled by “arthritis” that he couldn’t possibly do a double murder. Cochran told the jury the defense would prove the evidence was “contaminated, compromised, and ultimately corrupted.”

Although their lives were short, they made a huge impact on history, now known around the country as legendary rogue lovers who went down together. Millions of Americans in the 1930’s were engrossed in their story, catching up by reading the giant headlines on the front pages of newspapers. They read of many robberies, car thefts, and terrifying murders; it was like reading an enticing novel or watching a new movie. However, the story was much different in Bonnie and Clyde's eyes. In the first person point-of-view, evading police capture and being on the run must have been extremely terrifying.
He recalls an experience of him at his own job, “I was writing for with a deadline story in hand, I was mistaken for a burglar.” (Staples 190). He then refers to research referencing another black reporter that was put in a far worse situation than him, “Mistaking the reporter for the killer, police officers hauled him from his car at gunpoint and but for his press credentials would probably have tried to book him.” Although the overall story has a bit of a melancholy feel to it, the author ends it on bright note by mentioning one of his solutions to public situations by whistling classical pieces, “Virtually everybody seems to sense that a mugger wouldn’t be warbling bright, sunny selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

Although the infamy of Alcatraz Federal Prison has faded over the decades, the mere mention of its name fifty years ago would make a prisoners’ ears tingle.
