    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.
    Exactly. We are better than that.

    If he is on death's door....days to live, can't move or do for himself, fine.

    But if he is moving around and capable - he is a dying man with nothing left to lose. Scary.

    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~

    Presidential Pardons: Legal Guidelines
    2. Federal convictions only

    Under the Constitution, only federal criminal convictions, such as those adjudicated in the United States District Courts, may be pardoned by the President. In addition, the President's pardon power extends to convictions adjudicated in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and military court-martial proceedings. However, the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense. Accordingly, if you are seeking clemency for a state criminal conviction, you should not complete and submit this petition. Instead, you should contact the Governor or other appropriate authorities of the state where you reside or where the conviction occurred (such as the state board of pardons and paroles) to determine whether any relief is available to you under state law. If you have a federal conviction, information about the conviction may be obtained from the clerk of the federal court where you were convicted.

    One just got released on Dec 31 because she has breast cáncer, and she was a pretty bad one.

    Maybe that is why OJ is asking for this.

    Do you think Obama would stick his nose in this case?

    He has commented on many a local case before.

    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?
    You mean riding all over LA right?

    No it is not technical. I didn't know if you were a kid that thought OJ was driving.

    I just wish OJ would have followed through on his threat when he was in the Bronco. It would have simplified my life.
