13 Years to the Day…
So 13 years to the day after he was acquitted of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the jury in the robbery/kidnapping case deliberated for 13 hours and came back with a guilty verdict for OJ. Now OJ might spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Do I think he should spend the rest of his life in prison? Of course. However, if it is the current 12 crimes that he was convicted of that we’re talking about…I have to reluctantly say no.
I don’t know if OJ is incredibly stupid or just obnoxiously arrogant. Maybe it’s both. He got away with a double murder, so why wouldn’t he think that it would be fine to gather up his thugs and go manhandle these sports junk dealers? He didn’t bank on them reporting it to the police I guess.
The thing is, I guess I just don’t think what he did this time is bad enough to warrant a life sentence. It wasn’t nice and it certainly was criminal, but if the judge (who btw seems to hate OJ) is fair about it, I really don’t think that he’s going to get life or anything like it.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I’m glad he didn’t get off scott free this time, but if the punishment fits these particular crimes, I think it’s just wishful thinking that he’ll be a very old man and still be in jail.
