The video is from the making of 'O.J.: Made in America', a documentary by ESPN, when Carrie Bess, the juror sat down to talk about the case. In the short video clip, Carrie Bess could be seen confessing that the O.J. Simpson's trial verdict was more like a "payback". 

Carrie Bess admitted that 90% of the jury members in the trial knew that OJ was guilty. But the reason behind this verdict was a lesson. It was the payback that the jury gave to the police officials who were set free in the famous Rodney King case.
