The Tragedy of Orenthal

I have done the state some service.....

O.J. has gone down. We all knew he would. The jury in Nevada convicted him and he could spend the rest of his life in prison. Let's face it: there was no way he was beating this rap. I really don't think he did what they've accused him of. I really don't think he deserves to spend more than a few days in the clink over this stuff even if he did do it. The judge instructed the jury they were only to look at this case and not past accusations. None of that matters. He was going down. This jury just convicted him of killing Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. It had nothing to do with anything else. There was no way he was walking away from this one. Oj had become the symbol of everything that was wrong with the justice system. People believed he had gotten away with double murder (for the record I remain unsure on that, but that doesn't matter either). People complain that celebrities get off too easily. But it works the other way too. If somebody becomes infamous enough a jury will take them down at the first opportunity. You've heard of "jury nullification?" It works the other way too. It's a type of justice, I guess.
