    I just think that he has such a sad life. He has been 'stuck on stupid' for such a long time that I just feel sorry for him. I also feel sorry for his kids:(.

    lol, ya'll are funny. It said somewhere about how hard he had worked to get his kids through college and now that he had he was worried about getting to see them graduate. I bet his kids are mad about the stunt he pulled in Vegas and they are probably old enough to know and understand Karma as well.

    I don't know, I feel he did the killings, but if he was convicted now because of him being acquitted 13 years ago I think the cause of justice has not been served and I don't think it is funny.
    From what I read of the trial I don't think he was guilty of all 12 charges.
    A trial must be fair, Very rarely is a trial unfair but it is too bad he wasn't convicted 13 years ago then I wouldn't be thinking this way.

    Exactly, Dave. I hear a radio interview yesterday asking people if they thought this verdict was retribution. Many said yes and just a couple said that the possible long sentence was too harsh. Strange that he got away with double murder and gets nailed for this. What a loser.

    You know, that's exactly what I felt when I heard the verdict.

    I haven't been following it at all, really, but knew the general outline of the case.

    It seems to me that maybe he was found guilty of those 12 counts with the intent of punishing him for the murders for which our legal system acquited him.

    I think he was guilty of murder, but I'm not so sure about the kidnapping and other charges.

    Kind of like Al Capone going to jail for tax evasion, except that Capone really was guilty of all the tax evasion charges.

    Any way you slice it, not a pleasant end for a football star who once had it all.

    I'm just sick of his arse! I don't care if it is retribution or not. Guilty is guilty. Just like his supposed innocence was innocence. I can barely look at the guy.


    Sorry to expose this sour side of Lemonhead...plus I haven't had coffee yet:)

    Yeah, but I'm concerned about that slippery slope.

    Does anyone think OJ was innocent of ALL 12 charges?????? Anyone think he didn't have any involvement with the armed thugs using strong armed tactics?:eek::eek:

    I find it hard to believe that he didn't have some involvement..:)

    I think he was guilty then and is guilty now. Karma does work, sometimes it just takes awhile. He brought it all on himself.

    I don't think he is guilty of ALL 12 counts, some of them yes but IMHO he did not know about the gun.

    I think he was found innocent 13 years ago was wrong. I think him being found guilty of ALL 12 counts is wrong.
    What did our mothers say? Two wrongs don't make a right.....
    I am glad he will be serving time... Did lady justice get a black eye on this?

    I certainly didn't follow the trial closely.... hardly at all. I assume that if he was found guilty on all counts then most likely he is surely guilty of some of them.

    As for the gun..... I thought he had requested someone to bring a gun.... :confused:

    Major......:):)

    I agree that he probably was guilty of some of the charges, probably not all of them. There is definitely some lingering feelings over his acquittal 13 years ago that came into play in this trial. It does suck that justice didn't get him the first time.

    I was thrilled to see the verdict....i am kind of personally interested as my cousin recently married Ron Golmans sister. I know this was good news to them.

    I absolutely think that he was found guilty of these charges because of his past. And I'm non-apologetic for being okay with that.

    OJ Simposon...one word for him- KARMA!

    Never found him guilty for killing the poor white woman now he sought a reason to go to jail. Lock him up and throw away the key.
