Best answer: He can't be innocent. There was no way to frame him with the evidence they had.
They didn't have a witness to the crime and never found the murder weapon but they had a lot of evidence which would be impossible to explain without OJ being the killer (or at least present when the killing happened). OJ was seen in the neighborhood where the murder took place minutes afterwards (contradicting his account that he was sleeping). OJ's blood was found at the crime scene. Nichole Brown and Ron Goldman's blood was found on socks at OJ's house, on a bloody glove found at the crime scene, on a matching glove found at OJ's residence, and inside OJ's car. Hairs from an African American man were found at the crime scene as well as carpet fibers which matched OJ's car. Witness statements show that OJ's car was not parked outside the house at the time of the murders but was parked there by someone at about the time that an African American man of OJ's size and build was seen sneaking back into the compound shortly after the murder. A bloody shoe print matching OJ's shoe size and a rare type of expensive shoe that he owned, was found in the blood at the murder scene.
There's no way to explain this evidence other than OJ having been at the murder scene at the time of the murder. The idea that this evidence could be planted really defies logic. It would require a bunch of cops to essentially instantly decide to frame OJ the night of the murder and would require them to drive back and forth several times planting evidence. It would also require them to have OJ's blood on hand the night of the murder in order to plant it. Also, the gloves which were found covered in blood were from a rare expensive brand which he owned, only a couple hundred of which had been made. The shoes were similarly of a rare and expensive brand, only a few hundred of which had been made in OJ's size. The idea of a frame up doesn't even make much sense from a logical point of view. The cops weren't out to get OJ. They had helped cover up his history of domestic abuse. The defense argued that Fuhrman did it because he was a racist. It's certainly true that Mark Fuhrman was a hard core racist, but just because you're a racist cop doesn't mean you frame every black guy you come across. Fuhrman had interacted with lots of black guys who he had never framed or accused of crimes, including OJ, who he had previously dealt with and let go on a domestic violence call. Also, at the time the cops would have had to frame OJ they didn't know where he was or who killed Nichole. OJ could have been anywhere. He could have been in New York, or Europe or someplace with a hundred witnesses to alibi him. In fact, they justified entering his compound on the night of the murder based on the fear that he might have been a victim of the same people who attacked Nichole and Ron. OJ could have been dead too for all they knew. Why on earth would they decide to frame him when they could get easily caught like that? They also didn't know who had committed the crimes or what other evidence might have been found. For all they knew there might be an eyewitness, or even videotape, that proved that someone other than OJ did it. The real killer might have already been caught elsewhere for all they knew. Again, why would they risk their careers and freedom by framing OJ when they didn't know if that was even plausible?
