OJ Simpson is Dead at 76 - I am not Crying Over it

 I do not want to grace my journal with a photo of OJ Simpson.  Everyone remembers his trial in 1994 after he was accused of killing his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.  Back then the media had a field day with the story and the ensuing trial.  Simpson had renowned lawyers defending him.  They could show the jury there was enough reasonable doubt to acquit Simpson.  In my opinion, justice was denied to the families of Nicole and Ron.  I remember seeing a report of young African-American students applauding when the verdict was announced.  He was later found liable in a civil case.  In 2008 Simpson was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping in Nevada and did serve jail time.

As far as I am concerned OJ Simpson was a low life.  I was not crying when I heard about his death.  I will not watch any media coverage of his funeral.
