Thirteen years to the day after he was acquitted of killing his wife and her friend, O.J. Simpson is finally paying for one of his crimes. Yes, I know this isn’t take two of the Nicole Brown Simpson/ Ron Goldman trial, but you can’t help but feel a wave of relief that he’s finally going to be pay for one of his crimes and that – albeit delayed – justice has finally been served. I know there’s been a lot of talk about fairness, about the jury selection (nine women, three men; all white), but I feel so proud of our country's justice system right now. I just can’t wait for sentencing on Dec. 5. Here’s hoping he never sees the free world again. It’s stunning that someone who literally
got away with murder would be so cocky and so arrogant as to risk going to jail by attempting to rob someone at gun point. That murder trial was such a hellish time in this city - and country - and I'm just so happy to see him having to face the repercussions of his actions.
