OJ confesses and tells how he did it (nationalenquirer.com) in a new book and he's getting paid $3.5 million to do it. The proposed title of the book is 'IF I DID IT', which sounds like horse shit if you ask me.

Ok, I know this is from the National Enquirer, but what the fucking hell is this shit? Why are these people publishing this shit and paying his murdering ass to write this shit.

...yeah, I predict a bestseller with this.

Can't some people just let the '90s die? Between some nutball claiming to be the murderer of Jean-Benet Ramsey and this, 2006 sure has seen it's fair share of flashbacks.

Besides, who doesn't love the 90s?

Im no paralegal here, but... if a case can be overturned by DNA evidence cant it be overturned by the culprit admitting that he did it?!

Or is he just gonna write the whole thing from a hypothetical standpoint and get away with it like that?

Double jeopardy rule. He can say whatever he wants and can never be tried again for the same crime. Overturning a case based on DNA evidence (or whatever else) is different because you aren't trying to CONVICT someone that was found not guilty. I'm pretty sure that if there was new DNA evidence that proved 100% that OJ did it, it wouldn't matter at this point, but if OJ had been convicted and later DNA evidence showed he didn't do it, he could be released.

Not criminally. If someone could prove OJ did it using DNA evidence, it would be too late because, and here is the important distinction, he has already been found "not guilty" in a court of law. If they had never tried OJ for the murders they could go back and charge him any time they felt like they had enough evidence.

You must have been absent the day the taught the Constitution as school. :)

Another scoop by the Enquirer!

    O.J. to say how he could have done it

    By ERIN McCLAM
    AP National Writer


    NEW YORK (AP) -- In an account his publisher considers a confession and some media executives call revolting, O.J. Simpson plans a book and TV interview to discuss how, hypothetically, he could have killed his ex-wife and her friend.

    Two weeks before the book, "If I Did It," goes on sale, scorn was already being heaped Wednesday on Simpson, the publisher and Fox, which plans to air the Simpson interview in two parts Nov. 27 and 29.

Couldn't they charge him federally though - much like they did with the L.A. Police in the Rodney King federal trial - for violating his victims' civil rights?

Not murder charge, certainly, but still prison time.

I hope this book is a miserable flop. I guess "miserable" is redundant... but still.

Let's see if I remember this one -

To the tune of "King of the Road", by R. Miller

My House is up for sale

I don't care, cause I ain't in jail

No friends, no dough, no life

But the dumb motherfuckers never found the knife...

So it's...

back on the loose again

with the help of Bob Kardashian

Black jurors are my best friends...

(slice slice) {that's the sounds of all the high keys
mashed on a piano - close enough for a drunk crowd}

Fuck - Ron - and - Nicole!


Ha ha ha - whatever. The book is coming out just in time for the Holidays - so

If anyone wants a copy for Christmas, or whichever Holiday you observe, PM me - a present, from Santa FLEA

And - it will be SIGNED! By me! Or maybe even OJ, if he has the nerve to do book signings. Or maybe I'll call "his people". We'll see what happens

But - anyway you slice it, I'll send you the book. First 10 are winners! Depending on your point of view

Grazi!

That was essentially the point of the civil trial--the next best thing to convicting Simpson for the murder was holding him liable for the wrongful death and making him pay damages. If there was some loophole by which he could be re-prosecuted, they would have tried it by now. OJ will never serve prison time for the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman; the only way he'll ever do time for murder is if he were accused of some other murder.

Here's the Slate Examiner's take on whether OJ could be tried again for anything.
http://www.slate.com/id/2153863/

Basically, they say it's possible that the Federal Government could try him for civil rights violations under Title 18, Section 242 or Section 245. This supersides any double-jeopardy protections.

Or there is a possibility that if he confessed, he could be sued for fraud, if he has taken any money as donations in order to "find the real killer".

And like Slate notes, he never was on the witness stand. And the statute of limitation for perjury in California is 3 years.

Sorry didn't feel like reading it at the time.

Would'nt any money he makes off a book have to be turned over to her family due to the civil judgement? I know his NFL pension is safe(I think so at least) but I don't know about something like this.

Which would really be strange, cause why the hell would he do this if not to make money?

While I am outraged by this piece of crap as much as the next guy remember

NOT GUILTY does not equal INNOCENT.

The court didn't say he didn't do it but that the DA's case didn't prove he did. And while it may be infuriating that is the law.

O.J. Simpson Book, TV Special Canceled

After a firestorm of criticism, News. Corp. said Monday that it has canceled the O.J. Simpson book and television special "If I Did It."

* * * * *

So much for that. But I don't think I'll go crazy praising Murdoch's / Regan's "morals" and "taking the high road". Or the opinion that "no one would buy this bullshit". Sure we would have, regardless of what Geraldo thinks. It's a true American Century story, warts and all
