Will the Pistorius Murder Case Be the Next O.J. Trial?

As the South African judge in the Oscar Pistorius bail hearing began to speak, television networks had been told privately that his decision would take about 15 minutes.

Nearly two hours later, he was still going strong. Desmond Nair knew this was his moment in the worldwide spotlight, and he wasn’t about to relinquish it with a quick thumbs up or down on whether the Olympian should be held without bond for allegedly killing his gorgeous girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in his bathroom. Shades of Lance Ito.

Remember him? He’s the judge who relentlessly played to the cameras in the O.J. Simpson case, which set the bar in 1994 for an era of high-profile celebrity trials.

In fact, there are striking parallels between the two cases, putting aside the fact that Pistorius (who was eventually granted bail on Friday) doesn’t even have a trial date.
