Truncated title: O.J. Simpson 'is undergoing tests for BRAIN CANCER and is begging Obama to pardon him so he can die at home'

O.J. Simpson is receiving tests for brain cancer and is begging President Barack Obama for a pardon so he can die in peace at home, according to a new report.

The jailed former football legend, who is serving out a kidnapping, assault and robbery sentence in a Nevada prison, is undergoing secret medical exams for a cancerous tumor in his brain and is convinced he hasn't got long to live, The National Enquirer reports.

The publication reported just months ago that the 66-year-old had such an extreme case of diabetes that his life was at risk and brain cancer would certainly add to his health woes.

He should die at home the same way Nicole and Ron did.

Hasn’t the Enquirer also been claiming that the Queen of England is at death’s door, since her 60-year anniversary in 2012? If I’m going to join one of those betting pools and predict which celebrity will be the next to go, I won’t pick anyone currently on the tabloid covers.

I think this is BS, but even if it isn’t, who gives a damn?
Die in prison.

Obama can pardon criminals from state convictions?
This might be a set up for more extra-constitutional actions.

Why can’t he die? Did he get a waiver from obamacare?

He may have had that brain tumor for a while, which could have been dormant until now. Perhaps that’s what caused him to go a bit bezerk?

Who knows?

I’m sure that Emperor Obama might want to help little brother Simpson out, but Simpson was convicted on State charges. But with Obama, I won’t predict anything anymore.

Given all the hell this man visited upon his “loved” ones, I say he needs to stay where he is. Several thousand men die in prison every year, whether naturally or not. What makes him so special, that he ran around a field carrying a football? Half those thugs should be in prison with him in this day and age. Too bad OJ, maybe you should have thought long term as to what choices you made in this life, now that you’re at the end of yours. Make amends with the man upstairs, that’s what counts. It’s a shame bad you won’t go as fast those you murdered, but maybe there is Divine justice from time to time in this world? May your period of suffering allow you time to reflect on what eternity holds for you.

Thankfully Obama will never do it - not even as he’s heading out the door in Jan. 2016. Obama’s got a presidential library to fund, an autobiography to sell and a post-presidential career reading off teleprompters for speaking fees to think about. He’s not going to jeopardize all that money for OJ Simpson.

I think OJ really got hosed on this conviction. He was guilty but the sentence seemed very severe given that nobody was hurt.
Murderers will go free in a lot less time than OJ is serving.

Nonetheless, I am glad he will ( hopefully ) die in prison.

So he can find the “real killer”, whom he never found on the golf courses. I wonder if he will admit to the murders but use the brain damage from football excuse?

He basically decapitated the mother of his children so brain cancer has a certain poetic justice to it.

Hey, it worked for Lynne Stuart; she just got sprung early from a 10-year sentence for conspiracy to aid terrorists by pleading health problems.

Maybe O.J. can do the same.

But if the Governor of Nevada is a Rat then one could ask...."how much does he *enjoy* holding that office?"

Or..."would he like a cabinet position in DC?"

An OJ pardon? Not exactly. How about OJ goes free and Obama
takes his place in jail? More likely that OJ goes free and Obama
gets a new golfing buddy.

Last I looked, kidnapping was a Federal offense.

But hey, what do I know?

I don’t think its a federal offense unless you take the person across state lines.

“Obama can pardon criminals from state convictions?”

Yes He Can!

Don’t be surprised to see Obama pardon O.J. Simpson and scores of others, mostly black, who have been convicted of violent crimes.

What better way does Obama have to get back at those who have attempted to expose him?

Obama will likely take some sort of Mass Pardon Action just before leaving office in 2017 or just before being impeached.

And then, off to Hawaii Obama will go, leaving the mainland overrun by violent criminals.

Sure does.
I remember the prosecution noting the strength needed to do what he did.
O.J. sure had the strength AND motive and opportunity. He's just too much of an arrogant coward to admit THE TRUTH.

True enough, when looking at the Las Vegas case alone. However, the judge did not and served up justice for his 'guilt' in the Simpson/Brown murders. Only an idiot, like the 12 jurors believe he is innocent.

True, but this is Obamaland where criminal activity is condoned and encouraged and criminals get cabinet posts.

No He Can't!

OJ was convicted in NV court. The president has power to pardon only those convicted in federal court.

However, it should be noted his power to pardon is one of the very few constitutional powers with no checks or balances.

He could empty federal prisons tomorrow, if he so chooses.

Do it Vegas Style. Put him at a roulette table, tell him to pick a single number. If it comes up he gets a pardon. If it doesn’t he gets his brain tumor removed with a big Milwaukee Hammer Drill.
