OJ Simpson is dying and has asked the Pres. for a pardon

14 posts in this topic

Original story comes from The National Enquirer, so...

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2532719/O-J-Simpson-undergoing-tests-BRAIN-CANCER.html

 

 

'He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find,' the source said.

'Now the prison docs are telling him they believe he has a brain tumor. They plan to run a series of tests on him, MRIs and CT scans.'

The Enquirer reports that Simpson has finally agreed to the tests and is convinced he hasn't got long to live, telling a friend, 'I feel the end coming. But I don't want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum.'

The publication reports he has even begged President Obama for a pardon so he can die comfortably at home.

OJ lived a celebrity's life of privilege and wealth.

 

He could still be enjoying that exclusive lifestyle today...

 

Too bad, he alone, chose to throw it all away.

I don't think anyone should have to spend their last hours in jail (when not in jail for life anyway) so if it proves he is in fact on his deathbed I wouldnt' be opposed to this for him (or for anyone else, for that matter), given what he was actually convicted of.  Which isn't to say what he was convicted of wasn't terrible...

What OJ did was horrible, yes. However, he is a fuging human being. If they confirm he is indeed dying, send him home. I don't think he'd be a threat to anybody at all. He deserves to die in comfort and happiness, not in a cell, just like all humans deserve.


EDIT: He may be getting the Al Capone treatment in prison, I'm aware. What I mean by "comfort and happiness" is dying at home, around family and friends, not being held captive.

He murdered 2 people. I don't care how he dies in prison, hopefully its very uncomfortable.

He cut a dude's head off and killed the mother of his children. Stop being ridiculous. He deserves to die in jail.

I can see an argument made from either side here. I just think that even though what he did was heinous, how he dies shouldn't be a punishment. His life behind bars is a punishment. His death should be one that is less traumatic on his family, as should everyone's. At the same time, he's a monster and deserves what he gets. So, I can go either way on this. It's just, if it were my decision to make, I'd send him home for his final days and let his family have a chance to say goodbye without prison guards around him.

Plus, why have tax payer money go to housing, clothing, and feeding a man who is dying? Let him and his family cover that poo at home.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
