The Persecution of OJ Simpson

Most people believe that OJ Simpson murdered his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Ron Goldman. Many believe that his acquittal of murder charges for their deaths by a Los Angeles jury was the greatest miscarriage of justice in modern American history. Both of these claims may well be true. Nonethless, there should be no doubt that what is now happening in Las Vegas with Simpson’s “kidnapping” case is selective and over zealous prosecution. The notion that Simpson and his cronies face possible life sentences for what appears to have gone down in that hotel room in Las Vegas is outrageous, and is a gross abuse of the prosecutorial power. In my view that is true regardless of what you think of Simpson. Whatever may have happened in the past does not justify the prosecution singling Simpson out, over charging, and pursuing an absolutely absurd case.
