The Big Payback
A Las Vegas jury found O. J. Simpson guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping exactly 13 years after being acquitted for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. True, the jurors prior to being selected swore they could render a verdict with no regard to the famous trial of the century in 1995 but it strains credulity to believe that it had no bearing on the outcome. Of course, the arrogant and incredibly stupid Simpson could never resist the allure of public regardless of the notoriety, so it was only a matter of time before he got himself in legal trouble for which he could not extricate himself. That he seriously thought he could engineer a heist to retrieve his "stuff" only underscores his imbecility.
