View Full Version : O.J. Simpson - If I Did It
August 10th, 2008, 12:42 PM
I don't know what forum a topic about a crime this old goes, so here it is.
I just read O.J. Simpson's book, "If I Did It" and wondered if anyone else has and what you think of it. What was he trying to do with this book? Who told him this would be a good idea? I wonder what his social life is like now that he's sort of confessed fictionally. And who do you think "Charley" is -- the guy who was with him at the murder? Do you believe that Charley brought the knife to O.J. or is O.J. just trying to make it look like manslaughter?
He lays out a pretty convincing argument that he did it. I'm convinced.

I haven't read it, but I am pretty sure he was only trying to make a buck. For the record, I think OJ did it.

OJ's girlfriend of several years is from my neck of the woods. When they recently visited her parents, it made the goddamn front page of the paper. He was holding court in a local bar... had a body guard that let some folks close enough to get a photo, touch him, or even talk to him - general "full of himself" dinkwad behavior. Asshole.
He and his tard-wench have had many domestic disputes - some where she has alleged that he hit her. Seems like they tend to get drunk and rowdy and fights break out. She keeps withdrawing charges. She has the most dangerous penis on the planet and doesn't seem to care.
There is no "if" in "he did it". He's lucky I am old and was in bed when he was in the local watering hole. I would have, at minimum, spit on him. At maximum, I would probably have to write my own "If I did it" book. Asshole.

What did O.J. Simpson really do that was so wrong? He killed some gay waiter and a white-trash skank that slept with black men. It really isn't that big of a deal.

Does anyone remember when O.J.'s Dream Team set up an 800 number phone line with reward for info about who did the murders -- and Howard Stern phoned in on the air and said, "Okay, O.J. did it. Now, send me the reward money."
I was listening that day and thought I would die laughing. The tip line came down soon afterward.
In the book he frames it so "Charley" brings the knife to the situation after Goldman walks in behind O.J. and surprises him. So it was only manslaughter -- ! And he frames it all as the result of his concern for his kids and that Nicole was hanging out with bad, drug people (unlike O.J.). "Charley" tells him about one of these events and that's what sets him and "Charley" off on the drive to Bundy to scare Nicole.
Also, from this book you get the feeling that Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammed could have learned from O.J. Simpson about mature emotions and kindly behavior toward all. At least that's how O.J. tells it.

I read the book, and for some reason I remember the same day the book launched that his ex-attorney was on the news claiming to have taught OJ to put on the gloves a certain way.
I was too young to be on the jury at the time, but I know he did it. That asshole has pretty much spit in the face of the justice system. I do remember a few years later he was going to file bankruptcy...maybe this is the REAL reason for the book?
I don't know. If I were her parents, I'd have a shitfit. Can't they still try him on manslaughter? Was that one of his original charges? If anything this book pretty much is him saying "hahaha I did it, AND I got away with it!".
Whatever happened to those charges brought against him for aggravated assault and robbery?
