Juice

Most days I have the TV on, mostly for background noise. It's either tuned to CNN or TruTV, formally CourtTV. Lately on TruTV there's been coverage of the O.J. Simpson robbery and kidnapping case. For those of you who don't know about this, I'll try to sum the case up for you..

Last year O.J. and some buddies went to Las Vegas motel room to 'get back some of O.J.'s stuff' from a sports memorabilia dealer. O.J. supposedly asked two of his buddies to bring weapons, which they did. The presence of weapons bring felony charges and possible life imprisonment for O.J. and the one buddy who did not take a plea deal. (The kidnapping charge comes from a tape of the incident where O.J. said to not let anyone leave the room.)

Most people, myself included, agree that if O.J. was not a part of this case, it would not even BE a case. Yet I continue to watch. (I watched the other O.J. trial, too.) There's a part of me that would like to see him sent away, but that is based on the acquittal from the murder trial.

That's not how our laws work, though. And the facts and evidence in this case seem slim at best.
