    Re: O.J. Simpson Brain Cancer

    Well.....I could see if they had hooked him up for the Murders he got away with, then I could definitely say no. But for the crimes he was convicted of.....I don't recall anything being over violence. Other than the usual he said and then the other said.

    If Simpson wouldn't have been involved in the murder case.....would any then have a problem with him being released. Would he even been convicted in this Las Vegas incident over his memorabilia?

    I voted "yes". But I'm really conflicted about it. I think it's important we don't punish him for murder since he was found not guilty.

    I guess I'd change my vote if I could. I think he should probably be allowed to die at home, depending on his brain cancer diagnosis. However, I don't think he should be pardoned.

    Where is there a photo of him looking awful? The photo at the link doesn't reflect what you're saying. He doesn't "look awful". He looks overweight and didn't bother buying hair dye in the commissary.

    Heya Maggie. They don't allow Hair Dyes in Prison.

    I don't see why any one convict should have exceptions made for him. If the policy becomes releasing all terminal convicts to die at home, that would be different.

    First, it is the Enquirer, not exactly the most reliable newspaper. Second, I thought he was in jail for a state matter, not Obama's call. Third, he is common jailhouse scum.

    I think you followed your heart when your mind couldn't find a reason to keep him incarcerated. When in doubt I always lean towards compassion. Even justice is tempered with mercy. The purpose of the penal system isn't just to punish but it's to correct behavior thru rehabilitation, keep a menace away from society and teach a lesson.

    Looking awful is probably subjective but he appears to be from his eyes slightly brain damaged. I've worked around a lot of people in clinical settings that have that same blank, wide eyed gaze. You've got to admit these two photos are dramatically different, even for the age comparison?

    I think he's mental. First the president cannot pardon him. He's in jail under Nevada state law, not federal law. Only the governor or possibly a Nevada clemency board of some type can.

    Secondly, I haven't heard any coraboating support for his brain tumor claim such as an official legal motion requesting some sort of medical consideration. Btw, his defense attorney in the criminal case, Johnny Cochran did die of a brain tumor. I think its some sort of weird psychological thing he's dealing with. Just my opinion.

    O.J. Simpson 'is undergoing tests for BRAIN CANCER
    NO

    the brain tumor has not been affirmatively diagnosed

    he admits this: "'O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms,' a source told The Enquirer, listing blurry vision, occasional stuttering and hearing problems as other concerns. He also at times feels confused and has unusual bursts of anger and fits of depression." [emphasis added by bubba]

    and there is this: "'But OJ doesn't care. He knows he's never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.'" [emphasis added by bubba]

    oj, you will receive appropriate medical treatment while in prison. now shut the **** up and do the time you earned for yourself

    Heya Sméagol. Are you sure on that and what he can Pardon? Anyone!


    Presidential Pardons: Legal Guidelines

    While Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution places no limitations on the president's power to grant or deny pardons, the Justice Department's U.S. Pardon Attorney prepares a recommendation for the president on each application for presidential "clemency," including pardons, commutations of sentences, remissions of fines, and reprieves.....snip~

    Finally, someone who isn't so overly biased. OJ did look like nutbag driving all over LA before turning himself in and may have even committed the murders but I fail to see how persecuting him brings anyone peace?
