    Re: O.J. Simpson Brain Cancer

    Honestly, if he truly is dying of brain cancer, he should be placed on house arrest in a hospice, or something, where he can be seen by his family. That being said, I'd want that for anyone who was terminal. The fact that he was a fantastic football player means nothing to me.

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

    Where did I claim the brain tumor was confirmed? I said "he claims to have brain cancer." For all I know he's being a drama queen but he appears to me a pitiful reduction of the Star NFL running back I remembered. But hey if your emphasis is on righteous indignation, then more power to you. The way the medical system works he'll probably get better treatment from the prison than any health insurance would provide.

    Another person after my heart. Being a decent human, especially toward those who least deserve it is the way of peace.

    Yes, he has been jailed and was in jail when he got sick. He is going to die soon and will (if he is religious and believes so) going to meet his maker and account for his crime there too which could lead him into a place much worse than prison (again, if you believe in that kind of thing).

    Just because this killer has shown his horrible side and shown his lack of mercy, we as a society should show that we are morally superior to him and allow his loved ones who are innocent of any crime, to say goodbye to him. Our last slight of him will be that we were humane enough to show compassion where he had none and that is something that should weigh equally heavy on his mind IMHO.

    So, this is possibly a stupid question and will earn me ridicule but wasn't he acquitted?

    If the gloved does not fit, you must acquit.

    My father died of brain cancer. I don't take that lightly.

    He looks pretty awful, and it's hard to forget his former NFL career and contribution.

    Because getting sick does not get you a "get out of jail free" card. You do the crime, you do the time, simple enough.

    You didn't. Apologies if my response made it seem that way.

    And to address the original post, I need to see something better than the Enquirer before I believe a word of this story.
