OJ Stops Hunting for the Real Killers To Write a Book

Postby knapplc » Wed Nov 15, 2006 3:45 pm

OJ Simpson has taken a break from hunting for Nicole Simpson's real killer long enough to write a book called, If I Did It, a hypothetical take on what he "might" have done if he had killed Nicole and Ron Goldman.

It's official - OJ has lost his freakin' mind. :-t

CNN wrote:LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- In a deal that some media executives called revolting, O.J. Simpson plans a book and TV interview to discuss how, hypothetically, he could have killed his ex-wife and her friend -- a story his publisher considers "his confession."

Two weeks before the book, "If I Did It," goes on sale, scorn was already being heaped Wednesday on Simpson, the publisher and Fox, which plans to air the Simpson interview in two parts November 27 and 29.

Denise Brown, sister of Simpson's slain ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, lashed out at the publisher for "promoting the wrongdoing of criminals" and commercializing abuse.

Judith Regan, whose ReganBooks imprint is publishing the book, declined to reveal further details of the book's contents.

"This is an historic case, and I consider this his confession," Regan told The Associated Press. She also refused to say what Simpson is being paid for the book but said he came to her with the idea.

The former football star was acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman after a trial that became an instant cultural flashpoint.

He was later found liable for the deaths by in a civil wrongful-death suit filed by the Goldman family. In the years since, he has been mocked relentlessly by late-night comedians, particularly for his vow to hunt down the true killers.

Simpson has failed to pay the $33.5 million judgment against him in the civil suit. His NFL pension and his Florida home cannot legally be seized. He and the families of the victims have wrangled over the money in court for years.

Simpson and his attorney Yale Galanter did not immediately return calls for comment.

I think it was official on June 12, 1994... the day that the bodies were found. :-P

He is so stupid- whether he is innocent or guilty (we all know he is guilty), why would he do this?
