Limbo Life

Nine years after the “Trial of the Century,” O.J. Simpson talks to Playboy magazine:

    “I didn’t commit the crime. That is why I got off,” he said. “I feel in my heart that I got off because I was innocent. But I don’t know if I could have proven my innocence if I didn’t have the money. And that’s a shame. Yes, it is a shame that in this country it costs so much to get good representation.”

    In the wide-ranging interview published in the current issue of the magazine, Simpson also disclosed that after his acquittal he smoked marijuana in order to get to sleep. [AP]

Hey that’s illegal, lock his ass up.

What a bizarre existence Simpson must have: still claiming his innocence, the years go by. Due to the all-or-nothing nature of our legal system (although he was later held liable for the killings and ordered him to pay the victims’ survivors $33.5 million by a civil jury), he must be treated, at least on the surface, like any other member of society in good standing. He walks the earth freely while at least 80% of the nation believes he is a stone double-murderer. Perhaps Simpson’s powers of self-delusion are such that he has convinced himself of his innocence. Most of us, however, are not so easily deluded. I fear Nicole and Ron do not rest easily.
