The Juice Is Loose: OJ Simpson Has Been Paroled After Serving 9 Years Of A 33-Year Sentence

Submitted by: skypirate 4 months ago in News & Politics


The Los Angeles Times reports that a Nevada parole board unanimously voted to release convicted felon O.J. Simpson from prison on this morning. With the ruling, the 70-year-old Simpson, who was convicted in 2008 of an armed robbery involving two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room, could be out of prison as early as Oct. 1 after serving the minimum nine years of his 33-year sentence.

When the final vote to grant parole was read after commissioners deliberated just over 30 minutes, Simpson lowered his head and then raised up with a big smile.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you," an emotional Simpson said.

While I believe he murdered the two, The State's burden of proof was not met, our justice system is the worst except for every other one out there.  Like it or not he was acquitted.  He shouldn't be punished for a crime he was acquitted of.

I just learned that upon release he will receive $600K+ in back pension from the NFL while in prison.  Oh and that pension is protected by the State and cannot be claimed in the Goldman\Brown lawsuit judgement.

Hes gotten away with so much its yawn worthy & pathetic. Once out it'll become a media frenzy of OJ doing interviews and meanwhile 2 human beings brutally murdered will become nothing more than a pun in someones late night talk show :( .......Pretty sad all the way around.

He got away with murder... again! :-x

He should have served every single day of this conviction. He (literally!) got away with murder once, yet he went and attacked someone with a gun in hand over money... he has nothing human left in him, purely an animal. He will never learn, he will be back in  jail soon enough.

The big problem I see is not his release but his plans to go to Florida. He plan to file chapter 11 as soon as he gets there and under Florida law, bankruptcy gives protection from punitive action imposed by civil actions, IE once he declares he is bankrupt he will no longer have to pay damages from his murder civil case to the Brown's and Goldman family.

Maybe he can convince the movie studios to reboot the naked gun series.

daegog Mad Magazine did a fantastic spoof on Naked Gun (Police Squad ) In one of their Special issues. The plot had OJ seeking help from the Squad to find his wife's killer. In the end Nuremberg was framed for it

Now he needs to get a job so that Goldmans can start taking it.

Personally I think he should have gotten the death penalty if, for no other reason, for creating the Goddamn Kardashians.

dkm458 It actually comes down to the Buffalo Bills had the worst win-loss record of 1968.  
  • With the worst win-loss record, Buffalo get sthe first draft pick for 1969.
  • Buffalo picked O.J. Simpson. 
  • While playing for Buffalo, OJ meets his wife, Nicole Brown.
  • OJ then (allegedly) kills her. 
  • OJ write a letter to the media, that is read to the media by friend Robert Kardashian.
  • OJ hires the Dream Team: Robert Shapiro, Johnnie Cochran, Robert Kardashian, Barry Scheck, F. Lee Bailey, Carl Douglas & Peter Neufeld.
  • The Dream Team gets OJ off, making the Kardashians somewhat famous. 
  • Then Kim sucks dick on video tape, becomes famous.

megrendel fucking fuckity  fuck fuck fuck.  Technically I think it would fall to Rodney King.  If those cops didn't beat the crap out of him and get off scott free then OJ would have been found guilty.

dkm458 They defended themselves from an attack by a drug-crazed maniac who had just had a high-speed chase.
They didn't have Tasers back then, there were no other methods to stop him but batons and guns.
He repeatedly refused to stop his attack, they gave him every opportunity and he kept fighting. 
They did nothing wrong. If they had shot him dead the case never would even have made the news...
