Two notable happenings, on this day in history 3rd of October:

In October 3 1952, the United Kingdom successfully tests a nuclear weapon, to become the world’s third nuclear power.

In October 3 1995, OJ Simpson is acquitted of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, in a trial that lasted 252 days, in what is often regarded as the most sensational trial in American history.

There was division among the American citizenry, with African Americans believing in his innocence, while white America was convinced of his guilt. His team of expensive lawyers, were able to create reasonable doubt, by casting OJ as a victim of racial discrimination.

Now you know your history.
