What a class act, that O.J. Simpson guy.
Many years ago, when I was in college, a person of African-American background asked me if I thought O.J. was guilty. At the time, I wasn't sure (or maybe I just didn't want to get into it), and I told this person so.
That was before the "not guilty" verdict came out.
Eleven years later, O.J. still vehemently denies he killed his wife and her friend, and now he's getting ready to tell FOX TV how he would have killed her if he really, actually, did it.
Seriously, WHAT? Whatever happened to his dedicating-the-rest-of-his-life-trying-to-find-the-murderer promise? The thought that even went into constructing the hypothetical execution of a double murder is disturbing, to say the least. The murder of the mother of your children? Hel-LO? And have you seen the crime scene photos?
Is he going to use the proceeds from his book (who would buy this shit, anyway?) to finish paying the $33.5M he still owes the Brown and Goldman families as part of the civil suit (of which he was found guilty, by the way)? Or are the proceeds going to pay for his country club membership?
This latest in a series of questionable antics on O.J.'s part (this gem being the last one I recall) is seriously disgusting. I mean, I've encountered people who I've wanted to kill with my own bare hands, but I'd never actually DO IT. And you don't see me trying to write about how I'd go about it.
O.J.'s been tried (and acquitted) for a double murder, in a hyper-controversial case, and now he's writing a book about how he would have killed his wife and Ron Goldman? What the fuck is up with this guy?
So many things wrong with this. SO many. If you didn't believe O.J. was guilty before, you may want to re-think your position.
