O.J. Simpson begs Obama: Free me; Iím dying from brain cancer
The Washington Times ^ | January 3, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 01/03/2014 8:45:09 AM PST by jazusamo

Former NFL great turned criminal, O.J. Simpson, has issued a plea for clemency to President Obama, claiming he may have brain cancer and should be allowed to leave his Nevada jail cell and go free.

The 66-year-old is currently serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and robbery.

But he’s being tested for a tumor on his brain to determine whether he has cancer — and he’s convinced that he’s due to die any day now, The Mirror News reported.

This statement by the criminal reminds of the one saying he'd find the real killer.

The article I read never says he actually has it but he thinks he does. I’ll believe it when the doctors say it.

I really could see him doing it after November when he has nothing to lose. Let’s hope Obama care keeps him alive till then.

Was he convicted on Federal charges? Or is Obama Governor of Nevada as his second job?

I don’t think that the President can pardon persons convicted of state (or local) crimes, only federal ones. So, The Butcher of Brentwood will have to look elsewhere for a pardon.

1) He’s not serving a 33 year sentence.

2) Barky can’t do squat for him - he was convicted on state charges.

What jurisdiction would Obama have to intervene with any kind of action to free OJ, who was convicted under Nevada state law (not Federal Law)?

It worked great for the Locherbie bomber, too.
Ya know, I remember when Simpson first started with Buffalo. It was a story about a kid coming out of the ghetto and making something of himself. One of the stories I remember about his gang life was his knack for fighting with a knife in each hand. Funny how that never came up in the murder trial. Would have nicely explained the two kinds of knives used to butcher Nicole.

Simpson is doing time in a Nevada state prison, convicted on state charges. Obama can’t pardon him or commute his sentence. Only the governor of Nevada can do that.

Just thought I'd remind everybody of the smirk on OJ's face the moment he learned he was going to get away with murder after all.

He beat the rap and gained his freedom back but he still ended up throwing it all away.

Power of pardon granted to the president by the Constitution is plenary. He can pardon anyone for any crime in any U.S. jurisdiction.

Article II says he can pardon for crimes committed against the United State. That would mean federal crimes, not state, wouldn't it?

Bull-shiite.

2. Federal convictions only

Under the Constitution, only federal criminal convictions, such as those adjudicated in the United States District Courts, may be pardoned by the President. In addition, the President's pardon power extends to convictions adjudicated in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and military court-martial proceedings. However, the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense. Accordingly, if you are seeking clemency for a state criminal conviction, you should not complete and submit this petition. Instead, you should contact the Governor or other appropriate authorities of the state where you reside or where the conviction occurred (such as the state board of pardons and paroles) to determine whether any relief is available to you under state law. If you have a federal conviction, information about the conviction may be obtained from the clerk of the federal court where you were convicted.

The pardon power of the President extends only to offenses cognizable under federal law.

Good afternoon.

Power of pardon granted to the president by the Constitution is plenary. He can pardon anyone for any crime in any U.S. jurisdiction.

True, but only under "federal" jurisdiction.

Then again, being this is now a banana republic, anything is possible.

Obama has the NSA and the IRS working for him, so I think he can find ways to convince the governor to do the right thing.

At the very least this could be obstruction of justice.
I believe Kardashian should have been investigated for aiding and abetting murder.

Here’s an alternative history scenario:

November 18, 1967—
Trailing 20-14 in the fourth quarter with 10:38 remaining, the USC Trojans are facing third-and-seven at their own 36 yard line. Quarterback Toby Page calls an audible, then hands of to his tailback—who bungles the hand off and coughs up the ball. A Bruin recovers the ball and runs it back for a scoop-and-score touchdown. UCLA the game 27-14, securing a Rose Bowl berth and a shot at the national championship, while the Trojans go home for the holidays.

The tailback becomes the goat for costing USC a trip to Pasadena and a national championship. He plays for the Trojans for another year, but his notoriety dogs him and the NFL shows no interest. So he gets a teaching credential and spends the rest of his career teaching PE and coaching football and track at Modoc High School in Alturas, Calif.

January 3, 2014—
Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman are living their lives.
