Johnny Cochran Dies


Johnny Cochran is dead at 67

The LA times reports the attorney involved in a number of high-profile cases has died at the age of 67.

Los Angeles, NC — The Los Angeles Times is reporting that prominent attorney Johnny Cochran has died.

One of his law firm partners confirms Cochran died Tuesday afternoon.

He first gained fame as an early advocate for victims of police abuse, then achieved worldwide notoriety for successfully defending football star O.J. Simpson on murder charges.

Cochran died at his home in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles, apparently due to complications related to an inoperable brain tumor.

He was 67.

God bless his soul.

      He my name is Brandon sims, I really think Johnnie cochran was very hard working criminal justice defender and what he did should give lots of people attention toward how your life can turn out to be. He had a wonderful spirit in his heart and died with passion so god bless him and his family. GOD BLESS

      I am very Devestated that he passed on because my dream was to someday meet him. He was a powerful black lawyer. He is a inspiration to me he is the reason i want to become a lawyer. I send my sympothy to his family.

      It is unfortunate that he passed away, but how is he an inspiration? He got a for murder he committed. It’s lawyers like his that enable sick men like O.J. to walk free. It’s a shame.

      If the blood dont flow, you gots to go.

      And I agree with Claire above, If money and power are what enables lawyers to set killers free to kill again into our society, then Mr Cochran is a prime example of what we as people should condem. God & OJ know the truth and Im sure God has plans for OJ and I have no doubt that Johnny Cochran is saying “Man its hot down here”.

      [...] Darden is making the claim that Cochran tampered with evidence, namely the bloody glove.  Cochrain died of a brain tumor in March [...]
