Has OJ finally found the real armed robber, or perhaps the real killer? He said he would not rest until he found them.

“on the grounds that his lawyer botched his case.”

In all seriousness, that’s pretty lame, when the only complaint you can muster in your defense is YOUR lawyer is incompetent..............I guess their only competent when they get you off, right you murdering POS?

Where is he getting the money to hire a lawyer? Has he finished paying off Goldman.

Last night on O’Reilly’s show, Bernard Goldberg had a decent explanation (one that most of us already understood) why focus on the Benghazi hearings is fleeting at best. He said millions of Americans are like babies who direct their attention at shiny things. On the day of the Benghazi hearings were two other “shiny things” that competed for attention: the freeing of the three women in Cleveland, and the Jodi Arias verdict.

Adding to my previous...

So, this O.J. development is the latest “shiny thing.”

I saw that interview also, another thing for the LIV (Low Information Voter) to dwell on.

I always thought OJ’s lawyer screwed this up for him, but I thought it was on purpose.

You would think that when you get away with murdering two people you would slink off into the darkness and stay out of any messes.

This is the kind of story the MSM has been waiting on.

More fluff news to spoon feed the sheep.

O.J. murdered two people, but I would not have convicted him in this prosecution.

That said, I haven’t lost any sleep over the conviction in the Las Vegas case.

OJ is getting long in the tooth...he’s an old guy now.

And try as he might, he will NEVER get his good name back.

Ever.

He should just let it alone. The best he can hope for is to disappear into obscurity because most of us do not want to think about him anymore.

But he himself keeps dredging it up.

No doubt this will be part of his argument...if my wife was black, I would never have been convicted.

We must remember that for all intents and purposes, Orenthal was white until Johnnie Cochran got ahold of him.

I have no sympathy for O.J., but I do wonder about the private hell he’s living every day. I would imagine every night when he closes his eyes, it’s enter sandman time, with sounds of Nicole and Ron gurgling in their own blood. Fear of prison will make people lie about anything, but deep down he knows what he did AND he also knows, with each passing day, he’s closer to being held accountable for it.

Again, no sympathy for him but I can only imagine the slowly growing terror that is enveloping him.
