Well, I’m watching Fox News right now – the tape of O.J. in the hotel room has just been released. The police are arguing that he’s the ring leader because he repeatedly told the rest of the group not to let anybody out of the room – but a lot of other orders are given by some of the other robbers – so it appears that he’s the ring leader, but that’s gonna be a lot of speculation if they’re gonna try to get him charged as the ring leadre of this. I’m assuming that they’re gonna go after armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Possibly assault??? I don’t know how banged up the victims were.
The fact that they took phones that were NOT his, kinda disproves the “I was getting my stuff back” excuse – so they’ve at least got him there.
Second – you CANNOT take the law into your own hands – it’s not the right (or smart) thing to do.
O.J. just needs to plead guilty to this one.
Also – I don’t think he should be up for bond – he IS a flight risk – anybody who has let police on a chase in the past should automatically be disqualified from being able to get out on bond.
There is a problem in the case though – how on earth are they going to get an unbiased jury? He has to be one of the most infamous murderers who got away with murder – so getting a jury who won’t pre-judge him is going to be hard (and this is unfortunate – but true).
All of this combined, O.J. isn’t getting out of this one. Johnny Cochrane couldn’t save him now – and I’d have to say he was one of the best, if not the best defense lawyer of modern times.
