O.J. Simpson One Hand Freed During Vegas Hearing … Claiming Ineffective Counsel for Reason for New Trial
O.J. Simpson freed. Well not quite, just his right hand. Simpson won a small victory today when District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell allowed the defense request that Simpson’s right hand will be unshackled to allow him to drink water and take notes during his trial. His left hand will be cuffed to his chair. Simpson is attempting to get a new trial citing grossly ineffective counsel. Currently Simpson is serving 9 to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping charges. Could it be possible that OJ Simpson could be back in another court room and another trial if he is granted his motion of ineffective counsel and be granted his writ of Habeas Corpus?
Simpson allowed use of right hand at trial … let’s hope there are no knives nearby
Lawyers for O.J. Simpson are claiming that his lawyer for his robbery trial gave such bad advice and had such conflicted interests that Simpson deserves a new trial.
LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson became so dependent on his lawyer during his Las Vegas armed robbery trial that the former football star would have done anything Yale Galanter advised — including passing up the chance to testify, his co-counsel testified Tuesday.
“I could advise O.J. all day long, and he was very respectful of me,” Gabriel Grasso told the court. “But if I advised him of something different from what Yale said, he would do what Yale said.”
It was Galanter’s decision not to have Simpson testify, Grasso said. [...]
Simpson won a small victory Tuesday when District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell granted a defense request to have one of Simpson’s hands unshackled to drink water and take notes. Simpson’s left hand was still cuffed to his chair.
Simpson managed a smile and a waist-high wave with his shackled hand as he entered the courtroom and found friends and family members in the audience. Among them was Tom Scotto, whose wedding was the reason for Simpson’s ill- fated trip to Las Vegas.
OJ Simpson Heads to Court Monday Seeking “Hail Mary Motion,” a Writ of Habeas Corpus, Stating Bad Representation Should Reverse his Conviction and New Trial Ordered
He’s baaack, like a bad penny.
O.J. Simpson will return to court in Las Vegas, Nevada in and attempt to seek a “Hail Mary” motion, better known as a writ of Habeas Corpus. The motion claims that OJ had such bad representation during his first trial that his conviction should be reversed and a new trial ordered. In 2008 Simpson was convicted on armed robbery and kidnapping charges and sent to prison after “The Juice” participated in a bizarre hotel room robbery, claiming he was trying to get back personal memorabilia that he claimed was stolen from him. Simpson was found guilty as the “glove fit” this time and is presently serving 9 to 33 years for the crimes.
Simpson has filed 19 claims of ineffective counsel and attorney conflict of interest in the 2008 case. Simpson contends his trial attorney never told him about a plea bargain that had been offered by prosecutors. He also said in a sworn statement that the same attorney knew about the memorabilia sting before it happened, and “he advised me that I was within my legal rights.”
Simpson is expected to testify sometime during the week-long hearing.
Too bad this verdict did not happen in a Los Angles, CA court room
Most defendants lose these motions, but in this case nobody is taking bets on the outcome. When it comes to O.J Simpson, who knows?
Nothing is the same when O.J. is involved,” said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson, who observed Simpson’s Los Angeles trial. “An O.J. case is never like any other case.”
Simpson was famously acquitted on murder charges related to the death of his ex-wife and her friend in a 1995 trial that captivated the nation. When he was sentenced in 2008, Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass, referencing the murder trial, said that her penalty was not intended as “retribution or any payback for anything else.”
Doesn’t OJ Simpson know, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Including criminals found guilty. For some one who got away with murder, Simpson should count his lucky stars that he is still breathing and has a possibility of getting parole.

Martin Luther King Jr. High School Womans Basketball Coach With Conceal Pistol License Shoots Attackers Protecting Two Players, Wounds One Thug, Kills the Other
This is the reason why Americans have a Second Amendment right to bear arms … to protect one’s self against thugs and a thug-like government.
A woman’s basketball coach at Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Detroit. Michigan shot two would be attackers with his conceal license hand gun. The coach protected himself and two other female basketball players who he was walking to their car in the school parking lot from two thugs. One of the attackers pulled a gun and grabbed the coach. The 70 year old coach, who had a conceal permit, pulled his gun and shot the two punks. He wounded one and killed the other. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.
Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.
You will never hear Obama, his minions or the national MSM touting such acts of defense by an American using their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
In an Obama, anti-gun world, the two thugs would have robbed these three victims, possibly killed them and done God knows what to the two females. All of this would have taken place before police could have ever been called to the scene. One which would have been a crime scene. Instead, in this case Americans took it upon their own to protect themselves and not be made victims. This is why we do not depend on government for self-protection.

Talk about no honor among thieves … WHO THE HELL STEALS FROM GIRL SCOUTS!!!
Two thieves stole the cookie money from girl scouts who were selling Thin Mints, Dos-Si-Dos and Samoas out side of a Walmart in Richmond, TX. One of the dirt bags grabbed the money box and ran off into an awaiting get away car. How low must these dirt-bags truly be? What’s next, robbing the kids local neighborhood lemonade stand? The thieves are still at large and got away with about $200 of Girl Scout cookie money.
At around 1:50pm, a man walked up to the girls, grabbed a money box from their table and ran to a waiting getaway car, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said.
A 15-year-old Girl Scout ran after the car, which brushed her. She was knocked to the ground and bruised both of her knees.
More on the altercation from KHOU … it would appear that a couple of the Girl Scouts will earn a merit badge in attempting to apprehend thugs. However, one of them was almost hit by the get away car as she was dragged a bit as the thieves escaped.
“A guy came up and was asking, ‘How much are your cookies?’ and so we were telling him and there was a guy in the car who was like, ‘Hey, hurry up,’” said Rachel Johnson, a 9-year Girl Scout senior. The girls thought the men were just really anxious to get cookies, but they were wrong.
“Instead he grabs our cash box and runs over to the car and drives off,” Johnson said. “They drive off and I sort of hang on to the car and it drags me a bit.”
Cotton ran to help her friend.
“Me and my friend, Rachel, went after the money and then they tried to hit me with the car. I started hitting the boy that was in the passenger seat, so I think he learned his lesson a little bit,” Cotton said. “And then they dragged my friend Rachel across the street driving off real fast.”
The suspects escaped in a black Toyota Camry and got away with an estimated $200. They remain on the loose.
Johnson, who sustained minor bumps and bruises, would like to send a message to the alleged crooks.
An #OWS Protest Too Far … Even Bill Maher Turns Against Them, Calls Them D-bags & They Should ‘Get a Job’
How bad has the Obama and Democrat endorsed Occupy Wall Street Movement become … even Uber-Leftist Bill Maher denounces them, calls them D-bags and they should get a job. OWS has lost one of its most vocal supporters.
Bill Maher on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ stated something that many of us have known since the inception of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Mahr found himself agreeing with Newt Gingrich that they should … “get a job.” He then went on to say, “… but now it’s just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution”.
Transcript at News Busters:
BILL MAHER: Let me ask you about another occupation, because this is – and you would be good on this too, panel -, the occupation, the Occupy Wall Street, because similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything for too long people do get pissed off. And as I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what – get a job. Only because, you know, the people who originally started, I think they went home and now it’s just these anarchist stragglers. And this is the problem when you, you know, when your movement involves sleeping over in the park. You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway.
[Laughter and applause]
MAHER: And I think that’s where we are now with the Occupy movement. They did a great job bringing the issue of income and equality to the fore, but now it’s just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution.
Actually, the reality is that #OWS has been doing this all along, the MSM just never covered or reported the rapes, assaults, murders, pimping out young girls, stalking of children, sexual assaults, vandalism or overall “douchebagedess” of the movement who Time magazine called their “People of the year”. Sorry, but who could have missed that these folks were anarchists and undesirables from the outset as they continually disobeyed the law, attacked the police and simply wanted to cause chaos. Oh yeah, because threatening the police, harming the elderly and threatening to torch NYC to the ground is a positive message of financial inequality.
All the protesters have done is cost tax payer’s millions.
Everyone knew from the outset what this movement was about; however, it has now escalated and the popular opinion of the OWS movement continues to fall and the rats are jumping ship.
