Convict


"Shoe program nigga! 23 hour lock down!"
Denzel Washington as Alonzo Harris in Training Day (2001)


Well the inevitable has finally come to pass. It was apparent not long after O.J. Simpson's infamous acquittal in 1995 that he was not going to be satisfied until he ended up back in the joint. He has finally come full circle. In what has to be one of the most frustratingly surreal chapters in American social and cultural history, the saga of one Orenthal James Simpson has now culminated in a felony conviction.

First Plaxico gets popped for shooting himself and now O.J. gets convicted for forcefully retrieving his own shit. What a week. Someone once told me that "the lord looks after babies and fools." Who looked after these two fools then? And here I thought that Damon Stoudamire was stupid for trying to go through an airport metal detector carrying weed wrapped in aluminum foil.

All I can say for O.J. is that this couldn't have happened to a more deserving person!
