Just so you know, in argument (not bickering but civil discussion) there are two accepted forms of comparison. It's the same for English and German. One is point-by-point comparison you mention. The other is analogy, signaled by "as," "like," or "rather than."
In analogy, the explanation is in the similarity of a few salient points. The reason I didn't choose point-by-point is obvious. For instance, Los Angeles is in California; Chappaquiddick is in Maine; different laws apply. Ron and Nicole were aggressively cut; Mary Jo was negligently left to drown (or suffocate, that part of the record isn't clear, either).
However, the false claim that one is the other is just another form of begging the question--to avoid the issue and misdirect. That's the false argument here.

If you call accepting responsibility pleading "no contest" to watered down criminal decisions, then OJ also accepted the legal decision of a jury in criminal court "not Guilty." This is much closer to point-by-point comparison.
Another is I think both men in "accept his responsibilty" are examples of blatant miscarriages of justice.
And such is the nature of our criminal justice system. The blatant miscarraiges of justice are a common occurrance, and evidence of the fact that justice is served, in out system, not always dependent upon guilt or innocence, but on having the financial means to obtain a good attorney.
