Even if you took out the two human beings he killed, O.J. Simpson’s rap sheet would be really frickin’ long. Seriously, the dude is not un-insane.
With this general sentiment in mind, a Las Vegas prosecutor kicked off OJ’s trial yesterday by urging the jury to lock him up for… well, anything.
The Juice – who recently got his ass kicked by his own daughter, Arnelle, along with girlfriend Christie Prody – is on trial for kidnapping and robbery.
But in his opening statement, Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Owens not-so-subtly turned this into a referendum on Simpson overall, with multiple allusions to the 1994 double murder he somehow got away with:
“Ladies and gentlemen, you are the jurors in this case, and the final story is going to be told by you. You will be able to write that final chapter, the chapter of arrogance and hypocrisy, and that will be the true verdict. A verdict you can feel good about.”
O.J. Simpson looks remarkably non-homocidal as his latest trial commences.
