The Juice is probably guiltyI remember back when the O.J. Simpson trial was going on, sentiment as to O.J.'s guilt or innocence was sharply divided along racial lines. Polls overwhelmingly showed what I witnessed firsthand: Whites overwhelmingly believed Simpson was guilty (the numbers were even higher among white women), while African-Americans believed that O.J. was innocent in equally large numbers. Fortunately for me. I was undecided at the time, so when a person of a different race asked me what I thought of whether Simpson was innocent or guilty, I could honestly say that I was unsure, thus avoiding unwanted and unintended racial tensions.
Nowadays, I've changed my tune and I am not afraid to say it: I think O.J. Simpson is guilty as sin, and it is a shame that he cannot be tried again (Granted, I believe in the Constitutional guarantee against double jeopardy). Simpson is now acting in the same way that guilty people act, publishing a book called If I Did It. Simpson's publisher at HarperCollins, Judith Regan, said she considers the book to be "O.J.s confession." This has to make a person wonder if Simpson has lost his marbles, because if I am in my right mind I wouldn't be writing and publishing a book that might single me out as guilty.
There may be another explanation for Simpson's behavior-if he did kill his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, he may finally be doing what guilty people often do: He may be having an attack of conscience and be ready to spill the beans because he can't hold it in any longer. By and large, I think the racial divisions surrounding this case are no longer so sharp-now people just want the truth.
Attempting to profit off of the crime he may have committed simply proves that if nothing else, O.J. Simpson is certainly a sociopath.
