Criminal Justice can be broken up into three major fields. These include Police, Corrections and Law.

Why isn't justice being acheived?

Your question is too vague to provide an answer. I can answer in general why justice may not be achieved, in the context of the law and legal issues, since that is where this question is posted. The criminal justice system is not designed to make justice it is designed to make a fair decision, although it doesn't always, it's run by humans you know. The criminal justice system has three elements, legislators to make the laws; police and prosecutors to collect evidence and present at court; and the court process set up to make a decision. These are tools; justice in this system is up to the willingness and abilities of these people (humans). The criminal justice system can only provide the services that taxpayers are willing to pay for. Taxpayers are not often in favor of increasing their taxes, even when it may involve a better criminal justice system; but any public agency is happy to be allocated more money for their work.

How could OJ Simpson be acquitted of murder in a criminal trial but be held liable for their deaths in civil trial how the American criminal justice system works in this case?

The criminal trial of OJ Simpson is an excellent example of American justice gone wrong. The criteria for a guilty verdict in a criminal trial is much harder to obtain. The jury must find the evidence sufficient beyond a reasonable doubt. The civil trial, which is really about money, is far easier to prove. Although I doubt that the Goldmans and Browns have received any money despite having won their case.
