Working Out the Rust

OJ Simpson was found not guilty of a double murder. The system says he can never be tried for the crime again regardless of any evidence that may arise. Even if he admits on national television and writes a book detailing how he did it he can never be charged with the crime again. He beat the system if he did it…

I don’t know if he did or did not do it to be perfectly honest. I did not watch the trial everyday like half of the country, but I did see some of his testimony. I will quote a good friend of mine, Vern, who said: “I have seen OJ in movies so I know OJ can’t act. I saw OJ testify and I believed him. Considering how bad an actor he really is he must be innocent.” That is how I always looked at his guilt as well.

Then there is the matter of his evading punishment. This is something different. I do not think he evaded anything. Infact, I believe his punishment is worse. In prison he would be “The Juice” and a hero. He would be isolated from the hating public scorn and feel nothing. Now he is in the public shame. No endorsements, no glory, no career: nothing. His only claim to fame now is being the guy who got away with murder.

The famous “not a murderer” factor of his current fame is what brings me to writing about him today. OJ is in the news again. OJ is the news again. Don’t worry, no one else has died. OJ Simpson has written a book and will give a national interview on Fox November 27th and 29th detailing how he would have done the crime…if he did it, which he didn’t, but if he did the book explains how he would have, but he didn’t actually do it.

The book, entitled “If I Did It” will be from the point of view of an OJ guilty of murdering his ex-wife and her friend in his backyard. The book will explain how the guilty OJ, not the real OJ mind you, destroyed evidence and created an alibi. It will cover the details only the real killer could know, but it is all fiction. It will place the reader in the killer’s shoes that probably will not fit. I wonder where the bookstores will stock it…

Why did he wait so long to write this book? Possibly because the statute of limitations on destruction of evidence just expired I would assume, but it is pure assumption. I do not know what the statute of limitations is to be perfectly honest. I am also not going to guess too much in this. You see, I live in Miami where the “Juice” currently haunts. I like my head where it is. I do not need rancid OJ chasing me down.

I feel a bit down in the accomplishment department while on the subject. I have yet to even write a book and here OJ has a successful football career, makes movies, kills two people and still has time to write a book. I mean is accused of killing two people. Down OJ,down.

On a side note, never take a vacation from writing. My lack of writing for this past week is really showing. I realize this update and the last one have not been up to my usual form. I will get back soon I hope. Just wade through the bad for now and it will get better, I promise.

I guess the man needs some money. He sure hasn't paid the millions he owes for his last trial.

Any monies he receives are already destined to go toward the judgments. And we know he's not doing it to confess and clear his conscience. What's left? Attention, probably. He hasn't had any in a while. He's longing for the spotlight, and if bad PR is all he can get, he'll take it. I won't be watching/reading him. He's just one more murdering thug.

Actualy Serena, teh money he is getting is going into another house in Florida and he won't pay a dime to the Browns or the Goldmans...

OJ should be on death row awaiting execution and not having sex with blonde prosititues and golfing everyday....

OJ is as close to a demon on earth as you will ever find....

SJ said...

Oh! That sucks. I thought the only reason he wasn't paying the Browns and Goldmans was because he claimed he wasn't making any money.

I've always believed he was guilty -- I watched his trial -- so you're right, death row is exactly where he belongs.

Serena,
That is why he moved here. The Goldmans cannot touch his money in Florida if it is in his house or his pension. Wrong I know. He is in the news way too much here.
