Poetic Juicetice: King of the trOJans O.J. Simpson is found guilty on all 12 counts in Kidnapping/Armed Robbery trial, 13 years to the day after his murder acquittal; The Juice could get boxed for 15 years to Life.
Viva Las Vegas! It took 12 Nevada jurors virtually NO time, to do what 12 L.A. jurors couldn’t do at all — They convicted O.J. Simpson of a violent crime.
It’s the greatest “Make-up Call” of all time — In order to fix one of the most blatant travesties of Justice in our lifetimes, they finally nailed the elusive trojan hero, on a somewhat dubious charge. O.J. claims he was “set up.” It could be true — But if so, he was too stupid to see it, and walked right into the trap. And he trusted his buddies, most of whom rolled on him in the case.
The whole thing might have been a sting, orchestrated to get O.J. involved in something with severe criminal penalties. And with egomaniacal O.J.’s own sports memorabilia as the bait, they got him to bite.
It’s not going to bring Ron and Nicole back, but it IS going to give millions of people a feeling that Justice is NOT unattainable. Every now and then, Karma happens, and someone gets what they deserve. Simpson is staring at 15 years in prison, and possibly LIFE IMPRISONMENT. The sentencing date is December 5th. Do you think that he’ll try to make a run for it? Again? Where’s A.C.? Experts predict that an appeal would be a waste of time, and that a 20-year sentence will probably be handed down.
Finally — A trojan gets what’s coming to him. All that can be said is, it’s about f’ing time.
Will usc STILL keep his gigantic retired jersey on display in the Coliseum? Of course they will — What’s a little Kidnapping and Armed Robbery compared to Double Murder? And besides — All that matters is winning Football games.
