Simpson was arrested shortly after 11 a.m. and is being brought to a police office, Capt. James Dillon said. Police are still determining charges against Simpson.

Simpson, 60, has said he and other people with him were retrieving items that belonged to him. He told police no guns were involved.

After escaping jail time for a double murder, wouldn't it be ironic is he ended up behind bars for robbery?

It doesn't matter how justice is served just so long as it is. Too bad he was never charged with the crime of dragging the nation through a tabloid spectacle. Unfortunately crimes of tackiness and bad taste don't carry jail time.

And the second tabloid media blitz begins. One way or the other authorities are going to put him in jail. As far as I'm concerned that's where he belongs anyway. I'm sure in the days to come their will be numerous conspiracy theories, and double the amount of stories of him being framed.

here is where i am curious....i don't really care about oj or if he did or not do his wife...whatever.

that said, if this thing goes to trial, where are they going to get an impartial jury?
seriously.

we now it's going to turn into a race thing fast as hell.

everyone knows oj and people are either convinced he did it or convinced he didn't....
either way, that is not an impartial jury...

what do you think?

how does the juice get a fair trial?

I see upside to this...

That this piece of canine excrement will finally be put behind bars... Juice is a sociopath, and it's better late than never as far getting him in the pokey for a good stretch.

I count the original OJ trial as the beginning of non stop media coverage that expanded with the death of Princess Diana and reached its apex (so far) with 9/11.

For that sin alone he should be tried by a jury of his peers. LOL

The black people I know are as disgusted and embarrassed by OJ as any white person. The thing that made the original trial such a race (and wealth) issue is it came right on the heals of the aquittal of those police officers who beat Rodney King to a pulp.

A far a a trial goes, I think he's just as likely to get a nullification (again) as an unfair trial.

It's a crap shoot, and I wouldn't be surprised at a plea bargain just because no one would want a trial.

I would not be at all surprised if some way some how new evidence is discovered during the course of this current investigation permitting a new trial for murder.

There's absolutely no way that's going to happen.

The double jeopardy clause in the U.S Constitution prohibits it. He could come out and say he did it and it would make no difference.

He was acquitted of State charges. It wouldn't be the first time the Feds have gone in after an acquittal and successfully prosecuted someone for some other element of the crime.

If he raped Nicole, or Goldman for that matter, the Feds could charge him with that. Or assault, kidnapping etc. If they could prove a conspiracy, they could get him for conspiracy to commit.

But you're right, unless they could prove something was very seriously wrong with the original trial, they couldn't retry him specifically for murder.

Still... wouldn't be surprised.

There's no jurisdictional basis for federal charges, sadly, he's off the hook for the murders.

Really, there's just nothing to work with.

Well, except for his house that he's sheltered from the wrongful death judgement by purchasing in Florida, and since he can't keep the profits from his book, he probably doesn't have too many assets, yes? So hopefully he can't afford Johnnie Cochran this time around. Last time was a total circus!
