"There was no justice served in that courtroom"
Those words were spoken by O.J. Simpson's friend Tom Scotto last Friday as the verdict was read in the Las Vegas robbery trial.
They probably were spoken 13 years ago (to the day) by many, when he was acquitted in the murder trial of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald L.Goldman.
Life in prison is what O.J. is facing. Kidnapping and armed robbery charges for his attempt to get back memorabilia he feels belongs to him and weren't for sale.
The out come has been looked at as a "pay back", "justice served", "spillover effect", and "lynching".
Personally, I believe O.J. killed Nicole and Ronald. I believe he got away with their murders. I'm sure most all agree his life and career was ruined because of the murders.
The Las Vegas robbery? Yes, he did commit armed robbery. Life in prison? Sentencing hasn't been handed down yet, but do I think life in prison fits this first time offender (according to law) crime?
I think if it was anyone else but O.J., life would not be handed down. Since it's O.J., I'm sure it will be a stiff sentence.
I can only hope for life in prison.
