O.J. Simpson has been found guilty of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman armed robbery and kidnapping.
I’m not terribly sympathetic, even though I think Simpson was pretty much cooked from the moment he was arrested in connection with this sports memorabalia heist in Las Vegas.
The verdict had less to do with the crimes he was charged with most recently, and more to do with the murders he committed in 1994.
That isn’t really the way the justice system is supposed to work, but Simpson is an arrogant asshole who believed that because he got away with murder 13 years ago (yesterday’s verdict came 13 years to the day after he was acquitted in the Brown-Goldman slayings), he could get away with armed robbery and kidnapping today.
One would think, after being wrongfully acquitted of double homicide, the defendent would have recognized his sheer luck, and chosen not to push it any further.
Simpson believes he walks on water, he’s smarter than the legal system… he thought he was above the law, and he thought he would beat these charges like he beat the other ones.
Looks like Simpson’s the one who got beat.
