      KABLAM! Take that, you POS.

      Just like you should have been put behind bars

      OJ makes my skin crawl. He is the clear-cut

      definition of the word CREEP.

      It was just a matter of Time.

      Ecstasy ring allegations, cable box and theft ring allegations, gambling ring allegation, running his own personal sting operation.

      This guy always had accomplices. Always had others involved in his dirty work. I still to this date wonder if his kid from his first marriage was involved in the death of Ron and Nicole.

      Glad his TIME looks to be finally running out. And it was a miracle that no one else was killed because of him over the last 10+ years.

      Let’s hope they throw away the key. He has been on tv for years since he walked free taunting Ron Goldman’s family with his arrogant, sociopath face. I’m not even sure in his own head, he believes he did it. His kind are the most scary type of human beings around. Totally wacko..

      Saw this video of him walking last night in Vegas and OJ is walking to a vehicle whistling ” If I Only Had a Brain”

      OJ never was the brightest crayon in the box. He is a thug and always has been, and where there is one thug there are a whole bunch of buddy thugs.

      I agree with Ron #2 that someone else probably did Nicole and Ron in for him- Ron being colateral damage IMO- but I don’t think OJ ordered the hit but rather just heavily suggested it would make him happy. I also think he knows who did it and so did Johnny Cocran.

      Saw OJ’s book at the bookstore today. I refuse to buy it, but I leafed through. It was boring! And Fred G had the cover changed to read Confession of the Killer….so like I was thinking, OJ was found not guilty by law! Fred G might end up having to give the money from the book back to OJ in a slander/libel suit.

    5. Maggie on September 16th, 2007 10:22 pm

      The book you are talking about I have seen. If you look close at the TiTle on the first word I in small print on it ..it say “if”. He was found liable for their deaths in a civil suit, so no he can’t get in trouble. There was never anyone, but 3 people’s blood and evidence at the scene, Nicoles, Ron’s and OJ’s.

    6. Mike on September 16th, 2007 10:49 pm

      Come on #4….If he was so innocent why flee justice with a gun pointed to you own head?

      Remember his look when the verdict was read….disbelief.

      His lawyers knew he was guilty…they just wanted his money. IMO

    7. mayan_moons on September 17th, 2007 1:06 am

      Make it stick Vegas Cop’s……make it stick this time. He’s been dancing arround the law since he got away with a brutal double murder, remember the road rage incident in Florida, where Simpson is charging like a maniac to some poor middleaged man wearing glasses? I was stunned once again that the jury let him get away with that but they did. Of course Florida only has 6 juror’s, which is so strange to me.

    8. Donna on September 17th, 2007 2:56 am

      I knew a sick person like OJ that went around bragging about what sick things he had done to people. Alcohol took a toll on this guys brain. He too like OJ always thought he was above the law. One day it finally caught up with him just like it has with OJ but it never changed his ways as OJ will never change either. Born to be cruel and honestly I do not understand why anybody would buy that book OJ wrote.

    9. Vicki on September 17th, 2007 8:38 am

      well every dog has his day…see Urine, it catches up to you…Just you wait. This POS is getting his and so will you….tick tock…

    10. Mr. Aquil on September 17th, 2007 11:24 am

      #9, I disagree. I believe Joran is home free. Aruba will not go after him.

    11. Maggie on September 17th, 2007 7:29 pm

      Paulus? Is that you?

      IMO Joran and OJ are of the same personality type. Taunt the victims, never corrected for anything they do wrong, they think the whole world revolves around them and what ever they want they think they have the right to it. Lies to cover up other lies to cover up other lies. Always knew OJ would bite off more than he could chew, he’s just that cocky. Unbelieveable after facing double murder charges and walking, he could be so arrogant to think he is untouchable..

    12. Carpe Noctem on September 17th, 2007 7:37 pm

      Vigilante justice will take Joran &
      Paul and do what needs to be done,

      > All in good time.

      Joran will never be
      truly free ever again…

      Like OJ, he
      already lives in a
      prison of his own
      making. “Sporter” just
      ain’t got the Memo yet.


    13. Susan on September 17th, 2007 8:00 pm

      I’m sick and tired of hearing that man’s name!!

      I hope he rots in jail :-)

    14. Mr. Aqila on September 18th, 2007 12:07 pm

      #12, I also disagree with you. Nobody will go after Joran. He is well liked there. It has been 2 1/2 years now and most people over there have forgotten about this. Unless Joran is stupid enough to come to the USA. Maybee? Otherwise he is safe over there.

    15. Carpe Noctem on September 18th, 2007 1:39 pm

      yeah right.

    16. Maggie on September 18th, 2007 4:05 pm

      If he’s so well liked, why has he been staying in Holland so much ever since he was released from prison? See how they run (Guido, Joran, Koen, Straten) That would be even more reason to stay away if people there think VDSloots are the norm.

    17. mayan_moons on September 18th, 2007 11:15 pm

      Police added charges of kidnapping today aswell as another charge, so thats 11 felony counts against him!

      I’m with you Maggie…..GO FRED & KIM GOLMAN!~

      Fred’s voice cracked up on Oprah the other day as he spoke of his son & hoping this book may get through to even 1 battered woman to get out then it’s worth it.

      I hope Simpson goes to prison for the rest of his life!~
      SM: It ended up being 7 felony charges and one gross misdemeanor. For each felony he could get up to 35 years in prison. So 35×7 ;) Here are the actual charges brought by the prosecutor today:


    18. mayan_moons on September 19th, 2007 12:09 am

      Thanks SM much appreciated!~
