OJ Simpson Should Really Act His Age

on Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Over the last several days I have been watching the OJ Simpson saga. It is like a bad B movie that you watch over and over again, hoping the outcome is different. You know the kind of movies where you can’t believe the main characters are so stupid!

In the case of OJ Simpson a bible verse comes to mind that is apropos. ” When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things” 1Cor 13:11.

My husband has a saying that he is known far and wide for. It goes a little something like this,” if you are going to be stupid then you had better be tough.” This sums it up in a nutshell.

According to Fox News, Simpson was arrested Sunday after a collector reported that a group of armed men charged into his hotel room and took several items the former NFL great claimed belonged to him.

According to the charges filed Tuesday, Simpson and the others went to the room under the pretext of brokering a deal with the men. Once in the room, Simpson prevented one of the collectors from calling emergency authorities on his cell phone “by ripping it out of Bruce Fromong’s hand” while one or more accomplices pointed or displayed a handgun.
The complaint does not specify which of the men involved was carrying the weapon.
Simpson’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, said he planned to ask for Simpson’s release on his own recognizance.

“If it was anyone other than O.J. Simpson, he would have been released by now,” Galanter said.
Simpson has insisted he was not armed and that he went to the hotel simply to retrieve property that had been stolen from him.

“You can’t rob something that is yours,” Galanter said. “O.J. said, ‘You’ve got stolen property. Either you return it or I call the police.”‘

Witnesses and authorities have said that they don’t believe Simpson had a gun but that some of the men who accompanied him during the confrontation were armed.

Everyone knows they have been trying to get Simpson for years after being acquitted for murder charges in 1994. How arrogant to think you are above the law. The Bible says “Pride goes before a fall.” OJ ‘s sitting in jail is a testament to how far he has fallen.
