Bill discusses the trial, not in terms of innocence or guilt, but in terms of what everything about the trial – what led up to it, what it is about, how it has been conducted by the participants, what the media and politicians have sad about it – ultimately says about the state of America and the attitudes that have become prevalent among the People.
