O.J. Simpson expresses sympathy for Scott Peterson
CNN.com (Reuters) ^ | August 22, 2003 | Staff Writers

Former football star O.J. Simpson, who was found liable for the murder of his wife in a civil trial, expressed sympathy in an interview released Friday for Scott Peterson, who is accused of killing his pregnant wife.

"Look at Scott Peterson," Simpson told Playboy Magazine. "Ask anyone in America about him. They'll say the guy is guilty. But we haven't heard one shred of evidence."

Fertilizer salesman Peterson of Modesto, California, is accused of killing his wife Laci last Christmas Eve and dumping her body into the San Francisco Bay. A preliminary hearing in the case starts next month.

In what was one of the most widely reported criminal trials in recent years, Simpson was acquitted in the 1994 murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, but in a civil trial Simpson was found to be responsible for their deaths.

"Well, when I got home from Chicago the week Nicole was murdered, I wanted to get on a golf course. I wanted to get away from ... all the hurt, all the pain...

all the guilt.

I've been told that Jeffrey Toobin told Charlie Gibson on Good Morning America that Court TV plans to hire OJ Simpson as a commentator! Two people saw that interview with Toobin and repeated verbatim the same thing.

If this is so, we need to express our displeasure at Court TV's decision.

Finally, Geragos has a character witness. Maybe Jackie and Lee will carpool with OJ from Southern California to the trial.

I'm sure Geragos is thrilled to have O.J.'s help.

O.J. can't take that job; he's still looking for the real killers of Nicole.

He sits around laughing about how he got away with it. If he thought it wouldn't create a backlash, he'd dance on Nicole's grave in order to get back in the limelight.

Undoubtedly. Check the bottom of your shoe; you'll find Geragos.

I will not complain--if every single penny they pay the murderer goes to pay the judgment against him for murdering Ron Goldman. And/or into an untouchable trust fund to attempt to compensate Sydney and Justin for his having robbed them of their mother.

Er, yes, RG. And here's hoping that if Scott gets off, he someday has occasion to deliver some lost eyeglasses to the home of OJ's current paramour.

He just can't stand being out of the spotlight. Get over it, Simpson, Peterson is also better looking than you are. Life is so unfair.

I remember reading a column by Wesley Pruden, the editor-in-chief of The Washington Times in which he predicts that one night far in the future O. J. Simpson will be sitting in his living room. On a table nearby is a .45 and a glass of cognac. O. J. will slowly sip the cognac and after a while will do the right thing.

The real story here is why is Playboy courting OJ and why does Playboy, Rueters, and CNN think the public cares to hear anything out of him. Surely there's something more newsworthy going on in the world.

One health food store has restricted their juice sales, because they have heard that OJ will kill you.

I foresee the distinct possibility that one of OJ's and Nicole's children will settle up and "do the right thing" at some point.

That's my prediction, anyway.

Geragos is a vile smirking sociopath, just as evil as OJ and Peterson.

Sociopaths don't experience guilt as normal humans do. OJ is a chronic coke addict anyway.

My prediction is that he will eventually kill again, probably some loser babe who hooked up with this monster.

In response, Lee Peterson sent Simpson the following telegram:

You're not helping!

Sociopaths have a propensity for such behavior. Bubba can't seem to get our of our faces either.

What Would OJ Do?

I'm amazed he hasn't killed again already. After all, he figures he got away with it once, he can do it again..
