O.J. Simpson arrested in Vegas!

He needs to be granted bail so he can go and look for the real burglar.

He is certainly a flight risk.....
No judge should offer him bond....
but some judges should not be judges....
so what say the judge?

Armed Robbery? This seems a bit hard to believe.

I thought his full time job now was getting kicked off respectable golf courses.

Well the victims were lucky. At least they weren’t stabbed to death.

Can he afford the dream team this time around, or is he going to go with a public defender?

Do they have the gun?

Does it fit his hand?

Hope you’re watching, mom, justice delayed is still justice.

"I thought his full time job now was getting kicked off respectable golf courses."

O.J. arrested? How will he be able to search for the real killers of Nicole and Ron?



I hope I don't have to post a "sarcasm" tag for that one.

Yes. No big stretch to go from double murder to armed robbery.

Thank you, dahling.

I had just finished reading the story where the sports memorabilia collector said he "was on OJ's side," and wanted to drop the case.

This is a pleasant turn of events.

The saddest thing about OJ’s narcissistic behavior and life is how his children have had to endure living with him. Imagine, knowing your father is a murderer - of your mother!! Knowing he has continually had “scrapes” with the law; and now this! Those poor children. What a horrid life they have had with OJ as their dad!

Big name lawyers will be clamoring to represent him for the publicity.

He'll still lose this time.

He’ll probably get more time for armed robbery than he did for murder. Oh, wait, he didn’t get any time for that.

I always wonder what OJ’s kids really think of him. Do they believe he murdered their mother or do they believe their father’s version of events.

Could be, but I doubt the prosecutor’s going to accept a plea on this. And there’s lots and lots of surveillance cameras in Vegas.

It usually works the other way around.

Now, I’m no fan of OJ, but I can’t help but wonder if the local D.A. is pulling a Nifong.... trying to get some publicity for himself.

It's satisfying to realize he must have been going through emotional and/or financial turmoil which motivated him to do this.

Whew- what a relief- I thought this would be allowed to just drift into oblivion.

The jury will find him “not guilty” once again.

Dang, I would love to see him behind bars - but don’t count on it.
