Wih all the talk around social media about president Trump and his family, it’s surprising that we a forme Heisman Trophy winner O.J. Simpson has just won his parole after spending nine years in jail for armed robbery. During the 1990’s it was a trial that memorized the country, did handsome football player, who became a movie star(Native Gun) and not only becoming a renown sports commentator, who could forget him rushing at the airports, flying over the turn-styles for the Hertz rental car adds, killed his beautiful wife, Nicole, and and an acquaintence of her, Ron Goldman? His trial was more like a reality circus then “The Trial of the Century”. Sure there were a cast of characters, from Judge Ito, Kato, the Goldmans, Marcia Clark, Robert Shapiro, Lou Cowlings, F. Lee Bailey, and of course “The Juice”, O.J. Simpson.
Never has there been such a long series of events that what first was viewed as the American Dream. O.J. had it all, Heisman Trophy winner, NFL running back for the Buffalo Bills, movie star, and the spokesman for the Hertz automobile rental corporation. However, it took the murders of his wife, Nicole, and her acquaintance that shambled this American Dream into an orange juice nightmare. I don’t want to play lawyer and give my opinion whether OJ was guilty, and also should he not of been awarded his parole for armed robbery, but really triggered so many killings happening to African Americans, there has been so many pathetic killings of blacks by our law enforcing officers, and now the shoe is on the other foot, an Afro-American escaped the death penalty. Only OJ, or his family will ever reveal the truth of the matter.
Sure it would be nice to know the whole story, but what is important is how money and power plays in the role in our world of justice! So let’s hope Mister Simpson can give us good reason to say “welcome home”, and perhaps you might have a surprise to reveal.
