    And is a person's ego, inflated/over-inflated, a crime? Seriously.

    Crime was not my point. Really.

    Some of the laws here are ridiculous. Especially the "kidnapping" one, holding someone against their will.
    A gun was involved. That was his biggest mistake.

    See ya, OJ. Friggin loser.

    Bingo - that's why the sentence is so high.

    I dunno if I could say it was his ego or his stupidity.

    His ego prompted him to "reclaim what belongs to him."

    His stupidity is letting his mooks carry guns to commit the crime.

    Sighs. Little bit of both.

    If those traits are a crime, I would have to do a Prison Break. I wonder which other people would I be shackled in a chaingang.

    He will be getting a 'celebrity isolated' cell, and his few friends will get him anything he wants, so whatever is allowed will be at his disposal.

    If he can, he'll have his own show, broadcast on the web - OJ Live! Ron and Nicole, NOT!

    IMO, I think he did this crime to seek some type of redemption or forgiveness.

    Going in blazing with guns, whether he was carrying them or his partners, he was bound to get caught by "johnny law." Robbery and intent to harm was established from the get-go.

    I think he has been waiting for his young children to get through college or self sufficient so he can make up for his wrong I think his conscience will finally be at ease for serving some time for what he originally did.

    That's an interesting take on it, especially the part about the “guns blazing,” but I’m fairly sure he didn’t believe he was doing anything wrong at the time. Basically, Simpson felt he had a right to retrieve what belonged to him, and brought along a few friends for protection.

    Realize that Simpson has lived most of his life as a celebrity, and as such, has had the rules of society bent for him time and time again. It doesn’t mean he realized there was any bending going on, on his behalf. Now the shoe is on the other foot. The gunman in this crime won’t spend a single day in prison. Simpson will spend at least the next nine years. That’s justice for you.

    We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.

    The four co-defendents in the Simpson trial walked out of Judge Glass' courtroom free men yesterday. The two that had the guns (the one that was brandishing it, the other had it in his waistband) both walked. The dealer that had the gun waved in his face was totally shocked. There's cowboy justice for you.

    You might not be too far off the mark, Ron. *sigh* I guess misery loves company.

    Not exactly. They got probation, which is still a conviction and not 'walking'. One (not admitting guilt, along with OJ) got 7 1/2 years to Simpson's 9. Simpson 'masterminded' and supervised the whole criminal episode, so he SHOULD get the longer sentence. Those receiving probation cooperated and admitted guilt, while Simpson didn't, not even in his sentencing hearing. I just don't see any reason for shock (or any reason to believe OJ didn't know forcibly taking back those items was unlawful).

    Yes, they all got probation because they plea bargained. I know that. They're free, as far as I'm concerned. Our mainstream rag said the same thing, in effect. Regardless, OJ masterminded, his buds went along with the plan, brought the weapons, menaced the dealers, plea bargained, blah-blah-blah...it's okay, to be threatened by a weapon and nothing happens to you? Stewart didn't (plea) and should've. Detractors of OJ even say there's more to this. I live here now, been coming here for the last 40 years since I lived on the West Coast/MidWest and SouthWest (DH even longer than I), have family that lives here also. We are familiar with Nevada politics and how it works here. Well, 'nuff said. I do not support him for what he's (OJ) done past and present, but be realistic as far as the punishment fitting the crime. But everyone's entitled to their opinion, of course. So I'm just going to zip it up now.

    Do you believe O.J's son did it, or is it another money grab about this murder?

    Is O.J guilty of being a bad father too?

    To further understand the roots of this controversy, a study of
    Mark Furhman's credentials and bona fides is well worth investigating.
    With the passage of time these cold cases get harder to figure out.

    I'm wondering what you mean by this. I mean literally, what do you mean by this? What's a bona fide? I've never heard this phrase used as a noun.

    The OJ case was muddied when that detective was heard uttering racial slurs.
    That slight leverage resulted in a disputable verdict.

    Yeah, I know that stuff. What I am asking you is what does "Mark Fuhrman's bona fides...[are] well worth investigating" mean? I don't mean what do you mean about Mark Fuhrman; I mean what literally does it mean to investigate a person's bona fides?

    Bona fides is generally a noun, in the sense that it can be defined as "evidence of one's good faith or genuineness; evidence of one's qualifications or achievements" (from the Latin, meaning good faith).

    It's also commonly mispronounced; the last word should sound like "fie-deez," not "fydz" (a two syllable word, not one).

    Thus to investigate someone's bona fides is to look deeply into that individual's qualifications for the position they purport to represent or the person they claim to be.
