I think he stabbed himself to death wearing a glove that would not fit.

RIP to OJ. Besides murdering his wife and a waiter, he was also a running back, a shhtty actor and really knew how to rent a car. Was it the vaxx or the eclipse? We will never know.He will not be missed.

No death bed confession of how he actually did it (if he did it)?

That's disappointing. Guess now we will never know how he really did it (if he did it).

"if he did it"

I just want OJ to explain how he planted his blood on those gloves.

Of course, OJ had Barry Scheck, the DNA expert who KNEW identification via DNA was MORE CERTAIN when identifiable among detritus...yet he was claiming that made the results LESS CERTAIN.

Hopefully, now in a special place in Hell.

BTW...if you focus on Robert Kardashian's response to the verdict, you'll see he fears it, too.

Even though I think OJ was guilty, he hit quite a bit of luck between the corrupt and racist cops, and an inept prosecution. And the DNA testimony wasn't ready for the big show. It simply went over the jurists heads.

Cancer refuted the claims that it was responsible for OJ's death but informed reporters that it would soon be releasing a tell all titled "Cancer: If I Did It".

Should this be a major headline? He chased balls and killed?

OJ simpson proves it doesn't take a conviction for everyone to know you're a murderer.

Just like everyone knows trump attempted a coup no matter how many trump cult members sneak onto his jury.

He was GUILTY and lived a fine life afterwards for a long time, while his victims never really got the justice they deserved.

Other than that Mr. Goldman, would you agree he was one of the great running backs ever?

OJ's family didn't lose him to cancer. I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure that when you die, the cancer dies too. That's not a loss, that's a draw.

No you didn't. You've been around here long enough to know that threads moved to the front page carry the timestamp of when they were moved, NOT when they were originally posted on the back page.

Look at the timestamp of post #1: 10:40 AM.

You posted your thread at 11:39 AM, which means you posted a full hour after QCP.

Interesting if true :

I've been waiting 29 years to tell this story about OJ and his days at USC. Now that he's dead (may he burn in hell) I have a story that I signed an NDA for that is no longer valid. I was a junior at USC working in Topping Student Center on campus in 1995. I was an administrative assistant to the President of Student Affairs that semester in the work/study program.

In early 1995, Robert Shapiro and Robert Kardashian (USC Alumni) walked up to my desk and said they had an appt with my boss. I was studying to be a criminal defense lawyer with a dual major in PoliSci and International Relations so I knew who they were. The meeting lasted about 30 mins.

After they left I looked at my boss like wtf was that all about!? He walked me outside and we sat by the old sprawling big tree outside Topping and my boss lit a cigarette for the first time in years and told me I had to sign an NDA because I could confirm OJ's lawyers were there for a meeting. Then he told me what the meeting was about.

Before OJ could graduate from USC, the university paid off two families of two blonde white girls that he had dated and battered. They had both gone to the LAPD to report it. One claimed he also sexually assaulted her in their relationship. The school had a vested interest in OJ going far in football and protected him at all costs. OJ had been in custody for 6 months and lawyers were in the discovery process for the trial and OJ's friend Robert Kardashian, who knew OJ from also being a student at USC, thought it would be best if those stories never saw the light of day. So a large check was written, given to my boss, and they left. I'll never forget holding that check.

Now, did you hear about this before now? Nope. That's how much power money enables.

After he was acquitted I changed my major to Philosophy/Psychology double major. I understood that I could harm society more than not if I pursued law. This is also why I abhor the Kardashians. They're rich thugs. Nothing more. #OJISDEAD

The split screen images of different groups of people reacting to the verdict when it was announced are still vivid in my mind.

I remember Charles Grodin making angry comments about it on his TV talk show, and then later his mealy mouthed apology to all the black people he offended.

The similarities between OJ and the Donald go well beyond the word orange.
