The public opinion vote will haunt Simpson through his entire life, people will always see him as guilty and think he got away with murder. Much like OJ, the chief will have the “court” of public opinion to contend with the rest of his career in Pamlico county. Whether the chief is innocent or guilty, this will tarnish his reputation and people may not trust him the way they once did.
