Where were you when police were chasing O.J. Simpson’s Bronco down a California freeway?
Glenn Beck took the audience in a trip down memory lane to recall what was happening in June 1994 when the famous car chase occurred.
“It’s one of those events,” Glenn said, listing it among other big events that everyone remembers: the Challenger Explosion, the killing of Osama bin Laden and the start of the first Gulf War.
The O.J. Simpson case has been called “the trial of the century.” After Simpson became a suspect in the murder of his ex-wife and her friend, he fled authorities instead of surrendering. The chase began in Orange County and ended in the driveway of Simpson’s home in Brentwood.
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were killed on June 12, 1994; five days later, Simpson was supposed to surrender to Los Angeles police but instead fled. He wasn’t captured until 10 hours after the time of his scheduled arraignment on June 17.
During an evening press conference that day, his longtime friend Robert Kardashian read a letter from Simpson, saying, "Don't feel sorry for me. I've had a great life, great friends. Please think of the real O.J. and not this lost person. Thanks for making my life special. I hope I helped yours. Peace and love. O.J."
