OJ Simpson Released From Prison After Nine Years

The Associated Press reports:

Former football legend O.J. Simpson became a free man Sunday after serving nine years for a botched hotel room heist that brought the conviction and prison time he avoided after his 1995 acquittal in the killings of his ex-wife and her friend.

Simpson was released at 12:08 a.m. PDT from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada, state prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast told The Associated Press. She said she didn’t know immediately where Simpson was headed in his first hours of freedom, adding an unidentified driver met him and took him to an undisclosed location.

Simpson has said he wanted to move back to Florida, where he lived before his armed robbery conviction in Las Vegas in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers. But Florida prison officials said documents weren’t filed, and the state attorney general says she doesn’t want Simpson to live in the state.

    I know where he’s headed.

    Obscurity.

    Which is what he deserves.

    • Kevin Perez

      I’m sure Chuck Todd is looking to have him on next week to talk about Donald Trump’s tweets.

      • Adam King

        Then NBC will hire him to do a morning show segment.

      • another_steve

        Lol.

        Chuck Todd gives me diarrhea.

        • FAEN

          Chuck makes me want to pick up my television and smash it to the floor which is why I don’t watch him anymore. I’m not rich enough nor do I have the patience for a new tv every week 😉.

          • another_steve

            I thought it was over for him – that he’d be canned by MSNBC – when, during the 2014 congressional elections, he opined that Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes “disqualified herself” by refusing to say whether she voted to elect President Obama.

            Imo that was a totally inappropriate thing for a supposed “journalist” to say on air. Plus it gave fuel and ammo to her Republican opponent, who seized on Todd’s remark.

            If Todd were an op-ed writer for a newspaper, okay. But as a supposed journalist on a TV news program? During an election campaign?

            Please.

          • FAEN

            Yes it was an inappropriate statement to make but it was one of the few times I kind of agreed with him.

            Grimes thought she would win if she was republican lite instead of being unabashedly a dem. When she wouldn’t answer who she voted for she was done. Why should anyone vote for her when she can’t even admit she voted for Obama?

            Chuck infuriates me with his constant letting pols off the hook. I’m literally screaming at the tv “ask him a follow up question already” but Chuck doesn’t. This is why I can’t watch him anymore. I know he’s worried about access but why have a show if you’re not going to ask the tough questions that need to be asked.

          • another_steve

            Well, Grimes was running as a Democrat in Kentucky, after all. Godforsaken racist Kentucky. I assume she figured that voicing support, in Kentucky, for a black man would not be a…umm…good career move.

            Politicians do that sort of thing – modify their rhetoric or just remain silent on certain topics – for political expediency.

            Happens.

          • FAEN

            But by not answering the question she let the republicans control the narrative and they bludgeon her with it.

    • PickyPecker

      Expect the ‘O.J. Holiday Special’ this December.

        I think he’ll announce that he’s going to run for election to the Senate. G0P of course. He’s famous!

    • j.martindale

      Or back to jail, which he is even more deserving of. Nine years when he premeditatedly murdered two people doesn’t do it. And I know that wasn’t what he was serving time for, but he should have.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Given what fueled him, this is what he most deserves. This, in part, would provide some karmic justice. No more fame for YOU, fame whore.

    • Christopher

      Now he’s gonna continue his work hunting for the real killers. 😀

  • Tomcat

    NOW leave him the fuck alone.

    • Brody Levesque

      Fuck that, He’s a murderous swine who needs to be hounded until he ends up back in prison where he belongs.

      • Tomcat

        Fuck you. He had a fair trial and was acquitted.
        I suppose you would love for people to decide your innocence or guilt from media bullshit.

        • Brody Levesque

          Nice retort. I was NOT targeting you personally but apparently you’re a Trump type of a person eh?

        • netxtown

          It is his bed. I vote we let him lay in it.

        • TJay229

          👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

        • Gerry Fisher

          Watch “OJ: Made in America.” There’s more evidence than “media bullshit.” Having said that, I’m basically in agreement with you that we should leave him alone, give him a wide berth.

        • Silver Badger

          Thank you. We are in 100% agreement. I am totally tired of media convictions.

        • vorpal 😼

          I agree that he had a fair trial and was acquitted.

          Thus, legally, we cannot hold him responsible for murder or treat him in the eyes of the law as if he is a murderer.

          We don’t, however, have to agree with the verdict on a personal level.

          I liken it to Christians who may disagree with marriage equality: they cannot legally ignore our marriages, but on a personal level, they can refuse to acknowledge them.

      • Tatonka

        Maybe. But rightly or wrongly he was acquitted of the murders. He’s served his time on the armed robbery. We’ve got bigger things to worry about than a washed-up, disgraced ex-con.

        • Brody Levesque

          Yeah prolly true. Just grinds me he got away with it is all. Armed Robbery aside I’ll concede that.

          • Gerry Fisher

            IMO, some of the worst mistakes we can make in life are to try to control things over which we have no control. We can’t retrospectively “fix” the OJ trial of the 90s.

      • Gerry Fisher

        Other than you choosing not to associate yourself with him, which is understandable, there’s nothing you can really do to “fix justice” in this case. Therefore, IMO, the best we all can do is, indeed, leave him alone. Now, it remains to be seen if he’s going to try to push himself back into the “fame” limelight again. If he does that, then he deserves all the rotten tomatoes that will be flung his way.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Finally he’s free to look for the real killers.

    • Hue-Man

      Definitely a one-armed man.

  • Lazycrockett

    6 months tops before he back behind bars.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Yeah, I’m not seeing this person as being smart enough to stay out. Also besides possibly his own children (and maybe not even that), I don’t see too many people who want to be anywhere near him.

      • greenmanTN

        I don’t know about that. I remember seeing photos of him golfing with well-known or wealthy people after he was accused of the murders before and after the trial. Apparently “fame” is so intoxicating that people hang out with people accused of heinous acts just to get some reflected glory.

        • Lazycrockett

          Yeah but just before the robbery had had basically just been surrounded by grifters and yes men, who put him up to the robbery to begin with. I’d say he gonna live isolated and shamed.

      • Adam King

        This is Amerika. He’ll probably get elected President.

        • greenmanTN

          And would probably still be better at it than Trump.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    I wish this society took domestic abuse seriously. I wish all women in this country were raised to understand that the first time he hits you, you leave him and that all cops would try to nip in the bud by taking reports seriously.

    • FAEN

      Not just women. Men face domestic abuse as well and are less likely to report it.

      • Ninja0980

        And if it’s domestic violence in a same sex relationship, even less.

        • FAEN

          Exactly.

        • Sporkfighter

          If you can’t report it, you can still leave the first time. It will never get better, and leaving will never get easier.

    • Gerry Fisher

      If you’re into it, I can’t recommend the documentary, “OJ: Made in America” highly enough. It’s a long documentary. However, it highlights how very complicated the OJ case was.

      Back when the murders and trial happened, I saw the situation solely as an issue about domestic violence as most white people did, and that’s certainly a huge factor. However, the first thing that this documentary points out is that the killings happened right after the LA riots in response to the acquittals for the police who beat Rodney King (inflaming the lengthy, LENGTHY racist history of the LA police in terms of their interactions with black people in that city). And don’t get me started on the mistakes made by both the police the the prosecutors. Probably most fascinating is its exploration of how OJ didn’t really see himself as black and what fame had to do with that dynamic; it’s hard to explain briefly, but the documentary delves into it deeply.

      I learned a lot watching the documentary, and it shifted my thinking about OJ. It also covers in detail the incident in the hotel in Vegas that finally sent him to jail, and the weirdness surrounding the use of one sentence (possibly) as a way to “make up for” another trial.

      • Kissmagrits

        Especially, Lance (I’m ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille) Ito…….

        • Gerry Fisher

          We could use up both hands listing the fools fighting for camera time during the trial. It was ugly. Probably the only one who hated it was Marsha Clark.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        They should never have had televised it. I have no idea why they thought it was a good idea.

        Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll look it up.

      • greenmanTN

        The whole thing was a clusterfuck. I think it was in a book by Thomas Noguchi, formerly the chief coroner in LA, which claimed that some of the blood found in OJ’s house had a blood preservative in it which means it had been in a test tube before it was found in the house, likely taken from the crime scene. The cops wanted to make sure he was convicted and (I believe) tampered with evidence, and by doing so pretty much guaranteed he wouldn’t be convicted.

        I’ve often wondered how I would have voted if I was on the jury. If it’s true that the cops planted or tampered with SOME of the evidence, then ALL the evidence becomes suspect. It would be a hard decision, for me at least. I think I would have voted guilty, but the police misconduct would be a hurdle.

        • grada3784

          I would have had no problem at all. The guy was probably guilty, but the prosecutors opened so much reasonable doubt with their gross incompetence, I would have been forced to vote not guilty.

        • Goodboy

          Police incompetence or not the man is guilty of murdering two innocence people.

          • John30013

            Probably true, but the jury system exists to keep the government in check by forcing them to prove their argument beyond a reasonable doubt. Evidence tampering is certainly reasonable doubt.

        • thatotherjean

          I watched it, and can remember the prosecution hammering DNA evidence to the point of stupefaction. How many times did they think a jury needed to have what DNA was and what it meant explained? They never let go of a single point of ANYTHING until they had hammered it into the ground, twice. Lance Ito should have been sanctioned for letting them go on and on and on and on, and also for letting Johnny Cochran pull that stunt with the glove–although it may have been the only thing that kept the jury from dying of boredom. It could have been refuted easily enough, if the blabbermouth prosecutors had thought about the matter for a bit. Too bad the jury found him not guilty.

      • marshlc

        Yeah, I learned a lot from that, too. It made the response of the black community to the trial make sense to me for the first time – it’s like he was a stand-in for the thousands of times black men had been railroaded. To the point where his specific guilt or innocence was almost beside the point – this was one time when they got to say Fuck You back.

        Me, I figure he did it, I also figure they planted evidence. And if there is going to be a rule of law, you can’t plant evidence.

        …I’m not clear what this means with regards to bisexuality.

        Does it suggest that bisexual people are more likely to be abused / stalked? Why would this be so much higher than for people who are gay or heterosexual? And it provides no information as to whether the abusers in these relationships are male / female.

        • TrueWords

          Not sure how it was defined

        • Prost Seattle

          Twice as many people to knock them around!

        • JCF

          “Does it suggest that bisexual people are more likely to be abused / stalked?”

          I’m guessing because a male partner catches them with (or just *suspects*) a female partner.

      • marachne

        Citation? Deeply skeptical. Also, lethality?

    • Sporkfighter

      “…the first time he hits you, you leave him…”

      If this was the norm, the expected outcome, there’d be a whole lot less abuse. If you leave the first time, you’re helping shift “normal” to a new place by a tiny but real amount, helping others as well as yourself.

  • Gerry Fisher

    RE OJ: I just feel speechless and a deep, deep sadness.

    • another_steve

      Me too, Gerry. The whole episode is so horrible.

      I can’t shake the feeling that a murderer has just been set free.

      • FAEN

        IMHO the minute they didn’t hit back about the glove not fitting they lost. Just my two cents.

        • Gerry Fisher

          Many have the opinion–including Marsha Clark–that they shouldn’t have allowed him to try on the glove. Chris Darden introduced it into the trial spur of the moment, against Clark’s objections. It was too easy to turn into theater for the jury…too risky.

          • FAEN

            I have a feeling Darden regrets it. If he was going to pull that he should have had a fresh pair in the same size to show that the gloves sans blood and water DID fit.

          • another_steve

            “It was too easy to turn into theater for the jury…too risky.”

            Ironic for me to read that, Gerry, because just last night, man and I watched on PBS the 2016 British TV adaptation of Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution” – a tale that very much involves the “turning into theater” for a jury.

            Starring, btw, the fabulously gorgeous Billy Howle (see below).

      It wasn’t that blacks thought that OJ was innocent they were happy to see a black man escape the racist california judicial system.

      • TJay229

        I disagree.
        Everyone I know says he’s Innocent.

        • Lazycrockett

          Well I’m not an expert but the few black gay men I know thought he was guilty as hell.

          • Treant

            You’re wrong. Nicole clearly died of a suicide, stabbing herself nine times then slashing her throat. So did Ron. Clearly a suicide.

          • TJay229

            That was a very violent way for them to die… They should have just done it Thelma and Louise style.

          • Treant

            Yeah, OK, whatever.

          • TJay229

            We don’t know the same ppl obviously, but.. 👌

    • TexasBoy

      Well, I do happen to be white, and I do think he’s guilty. But in reality, it is just a meaningless opinion, as none of us were on the jury, and were not presented with evidence, or lack thereof. And it has nothing to do with race, and I know it is all circumstantial. But we’ve seen so many wives, mothers, children and exes killed by former husbands and lovers (of all races) it is hard to discount the very real possibility. And then you see his violent actions in Vegas…he obviously has anger issues.

      • TJay229

        I was working for the State of GA in the Courts Records Dept. There were 9 of us that were gay (it was fun and wild), 5 were Black 4 were White. We had a small TV in the back that hardly got good reception… But we could get CNN… And one of the White lesbians yelled out ” They reached a verdict” I remember EVERYTHING stopped… We all ran back mumbling as the announcement came across the screen…. “Not Guilty”

        Each and every one of us Black people CHEERED….. and each and every one of the White people were sad as hell.

        It broke off into cliques that day for awhile till one of the Black queens brought in a Peach Cobbler one day and we began to “talk” to each other again. And im more than positive that happened to other people the same way.

    • Lazycrockett
      • TJay229

        Ooo you lost me after the poll is based AFTER the TV Versions of the event. We all know how Hollywood changes things, right.

        #NotGuilty

        • Lazycrockett

          Whatever dude.

          • TJay229

            🤣😂🤣😂 You brought it up.
            “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and ESPN Films’ “O.J.: Made in America.” (ESPN owns FiveThirtyEight.) Both series leave the impression that Simpson killed Brown Simpson and Goldman”🤣😂🤣😂

          • Lazycrockett

            The poll was taken in 2014 and 15 before the OJ movie came out.

          • TJay229

            Oh yeah.. It does say that, but like you said it’s polling folks from TODAY. I speak from THEN. I’m old enough to remember it.

            “The people answering polls today aren’t the same as those polled at the time of the trial. People who weren’t yet born then are now old enough to be polled, and many who answered the mid-’90s polls have died.”

            You were right, to a point.

    O/T Update: Nearly 500 Air France Airbus A-380 passengers were held on the plane for 23 hours before boarding two planes out of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL, one for Atlanta to connect to a flight to L.A. and one directly to LAX.

    • Lazycrockett

      Why would they be held on the plane for 23 hours?????

      • Hue-Man

        Not sure, never been there. If 500 people had to clear Canadian Border Services, there’d be a problem. wiki: “CBSA officers at this airport can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.” The scheduled flights are domestic – Newfoundland & Labrador, Quebec, and Nova Scotia.

        It’s possible there are more facilities on-board than in the terminal. Airport website: CAFE/GIFT SHOP: Flightline Cafe & Gifts operates according to flight schedules, offering light meals, snack foods, beverages and merchandise.

        EDIT: ignore – obviously they got everyone off safely to board the other two planes. Final idea: logistics. A-380 wouldn’t be able to disembark at a gate (true for many airports). Would they have the right equipment to get to the plane?

      “Blind for Love” is right. Also, another example of someone who fights for the party who would love to take that away from him.

      • greenmanTN

        Yup. That’s what drives me nuts about Homocons. They take advantage of the hard-won rights attained by liberal/progressive activists then turn right around and support politicians and political parties that would them of those rights given half a chance.

        • barrixines

          I don’t think he’s really got married – it’s just more attention seeking for his Instagram page.

          • greenmanTN

            You may be right. Maybe while he’s there he’ll try that Hawaiian tradition of throwing yourself into an active volcano.

          • Robincho

            He’d look fabulous, thrashing about in Halema’uma’u…

          • jmax

            That only works for virgins. The volcano would belch him back up.

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            I can see him making up getting married.

          • Reality.Bites

            Oh sure, I bet you think you’re really clever copying my theory three hours before I posted it.

        • Steverino

          Not only that, but they gleefully join in on the liberal bashing and trolling.

          Biting the hands that freed them, in other words.

          • -M-

            They (many of them, at least) fight against their own civil rights, then take advantage of other people winning those victories (legal marriage being a big example), and then still support the people who are trying to limit or remove those hard won rights. Homocons (and Bicons and Transcons), if you don’t support the right to same-sex marriage don’t marry someone of the same sex.

          • TJay229

            I thought the same thing.

            But I also remembered that, He isn’t a citizen… So he’s marrying to become one.

      • Reality.Bites

        I’m betting it’s a stunt and wasn’t a legal marriage. It’s to make some “point” that will mean something to the alt-right, but will only demonstrate yet again what an asshole he is.

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          It seems likely. He’s still a good reminder of all those homocons who wouldn’t be getting married for real now if their party’s policies were in mail.

    • Treant

      How damaged do you have to be to marry Mallow Yappypuppylis?

      wedded at the four seasons. i guess being an asshole pays well. no guests to be seen. pity.

    • Lazycrockett

      Would a British citizens wedding in a US state be legal?

      • Reality.Bites

        Of course. Some countries set strict limits on residency and citizenship, but as far as I know it’s legal for foreigners to marry in every state, whether to a US citizen or another foreign national.

        Of course depending on where they’re from, it may not be recognized at home, but certainly it would be in Britain once marriage became legal there.

    • Helen Damnation™

      Prolly not a real wedding/ceremony; smacks of fakeness. Who would marry Milo?

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Donnie Golf Ball’s “best people”, as far as we know, are still in Hawaii searching for Obama’s birth certificate or something. They could search for Milo’s marriage certificate in their spare moments.

    As others have pointed out, if people want to be angry, just don’t be mad at OJ.
    Be mad at a police department and a system that thinks having someone who used the N word on a regular basis as Mark Furman admitted to doing belonged in a uniform.
    Be mad at a system that let police beat POC or worse with no consequences.
    They helped OJ walk on two counts of murder just as much if not more then his lawyers and $$$ did.

    • Silver Badger

      He was found not guilty in a court of law. Case closed.
