By now i’m sure you have heard the great news of OJ “the juice” Simpson being granted parole. When the name OJ SImpson is brought up in conversation it is usually in connection to a murder trial that he was acquitted of in 1995. The murders were that of his ex wife Nicole Simpson, and good friend Ronald Goldman. Although he was acquitted most felt as if he did have some type of connection in the murder case, and deserved punishment.

Simpson was later sentenced to 33 years when he was found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping. Because of his race and social standing this comes at no surprise. According to Huffington Post, when a black person commits a crime they are more likely to be convicted than when a white person commits a crime.

Simpson was a model inmate while serving his time and even completed anger management courses. When the question of what Simpson will do once he got out came up, his former manager replied “The first thing he’ll do is eat sushi and probably a steak”. Although we are not for certain what he will do when he gets out, we are certain he will be released in October!
