This post is not about defending OJ Simpson, it is about the media. The biased, unfair, out of balance media who doesn't even realize how prejudiced they are in their reporting.
The OJ Simpson parole hearing was about the crimes he was convicted of in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attempted robbery and kidnapping. He has served almost nine years and been a model prisoner. He was granted parole. He will be out in October.
Here is my problem. The media had to bring up Nicole Brown's murder, the Bronco chase, the spousal abuse! All that was almost 24 years ago! Are you the same person you were 24 years ago? I'm not. I don't know if OJ got away with murder or not but I do know that he was acquitted of those charges. Period. It has no bearing on the present day parole decision.
He has been a model prisoner, he said he made a terrible mistake, he said he showed poor judgment, he said he was sorry. What right does the media have to try him over again for crimes he has already been acquitted of. If he screws up again he will likely die in prison and he knows that. I would think that would be incentive enough to behave.
David Duke has gone on to become a state senator and earn a PHD. But 20 some years ago he was associated with the KKK so whenever he is introduced it isn't Doctor Duke Or Senator Duke, it is Former KKK member and leader David Duke White Supremacist.
I suppose I could come up with more examples of the press and their swaying opinion and character assassination but no one is reading this post anyway!
