o.j. simpson was found guilty this morning on 12 counts of first degree kidnapping, burglery, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
a sentencing date of december 5th has been set. simpson will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.
it was 13 years ago to the day that a los angeles jury acquitted him of the murders of his ex-wife nicole brown simpson and her friend ronald goldman.
how do you feel about this? didn't opinions about the original murder trial fall mainly along racial lines? do you remember the trial? johnny cochran. that surfer guy with the hair who now shows up on entertainment shows. marsha whats-her-name. the gloves.
it was all 13 years ago. and in 30 days or so, we may elect our countries first african-american president. does this mean...what? we've come a long way?
when this verdict was read in a las vegas courtroom tonight, simpson shifted and looked up with a bit of a smirk. sort of a knowing smirk.
what was he thinking?
