O.J. Simpson Has Bad Luck In Vegas - Troubled By The Number 13

Well, I am sure that most everyone here knows already that O.J. Simpson was found guilty of armed robbery among other charges in Las Vegas yesterday. But it is very interesting that his unlucky number in this case was 13. The incident that he was convicted of happened on September 13, 2007. He was found guilty on the 13th anniversary of his Los Angeles murder acquittal. The jury for this Las Vegas trial deliberated for 13 hours following a 13 day trial. And then this is the freakiest part - as the room echoed with the sobs of Simpson's sister (who was there in the courtroom) all of the lights went out in the room. Court marshals flipped on flashlights and shouted for everyone to stay seated. Only the judge knew what had happened. It was 11 p.m. and the courthouse lights had shut down automatically. That is just so weird! So in the end O.J. Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges for gathering five men a year ago and storming a hotel room at a casino to seize Simpson sports mementos. These items included game balls, plaques and photos of O.J. Simspson. O.J. Simpson could spend the rest of his life in prison with these convictions. Well, I followed his previous trial in which he was charged with the murder of his ex-wife and a friend. He was found not guilty in that case. It is just really funny how things in this world work out sometimes. No one really knows for sure if he committed those murders or not, but I always have felt that he probably did. I know that they always say "what goes around comes around" and "you reap what you sow". It is just very interesting though, isn't it? Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

I don't care one way or the other about him. I just think it is sad that nobody seem's to care about the children. Just say well, he is guilty and that is it. Just like anybody else. But the new's stations go on and on about it. They forget that he still's has children and they can hear. I believe he was guilty and still is. Oh well, I just alway's think about the kids I feel bad for them. Your friend onlydia

Yes, the kids are the ones I truly feel sorry for in all of this. I read on the internet that they are both graduating from college and that O.J. was afraid he was going to miss it.

Well, his children suffered I am sure of it. Imagine how awful that must have been for all of those years hearing that your father was charged with killing your mother. And then to have to live with him day in and day out. I wonder if they see psychiatrists. You would think that they have all kinds of issues from this whole thing.

I've had two other friends start discussions on Simpson and people who reply are glad that he's been judged guilty. I am, too. I hope he gets a lifetime without parole and I was very glad that they're jailing him till the sentencing. I just hope the judge can give him the max. He's a despicable monster and belongs far away from decent people.

Oh, I forgot to mention that he was convicted on October 3. So, October is the 10th month and it was the 3rd day and 10 + 3 = 13. I'm starting to sound like that movie, "The Number 23". Weird coincidence though, isn't it?

I'm glad he was denied bail as well. Otherwise, we might have been subjected to another day long car/helicopter chase while O.J. ran around, saying he was going to his mother's house and then passing it and heading towards the airport. How many people can really get away with that? I remember my husband saying, "If I were on trial for killing you and someone else and I took off, the police would have shot me before I managed to make it down the road."

Really, I know the average person would have have their vehicle smashed into or been shot if they would have tried that whole chase scenario with the Bronco. And definitely if not as soon as the cops pulled you over you would be smashed into the concrete with knees in your neck and back!

I have a feeling that it was just fate catching up with him. If it were up to me, he would have been in jail for the murder of Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson. And HOW STUPID IS HE for writing that book, "If I Did It"! I know he couldnt be tried again due to the Double Jeporady Law, but GEEZ!!!! I think he deserves whatever he gets! Hey OJ, dont drop the soap!

I know! I wish he would have gone to jail way back then for their murders. I think it would have been better for his kids to have been raised by Nicole's sister than to have been with O.J. How awful for the kids. He is an idiot though, he has proved that with his actions.

I am glad that he finally got found guilty of a crime. It took all those juries long enough! I wonder if he will get life in prison? I think it is a very good idea that he is in custody until he is sentenced. Otherwise I think he might just try to leave the country or something.

Oh, I have no doubt in my mind that he would have left the country as soon as his little arthritic knees would carry him to the airport.

Dont kid yourself. He was as guilty as sin of the murders and now he has gotten his just desserts. I hope he stays in prison a good long time. He did a horrible thing and has been getting away with bad things all his life just because he was a sports celebrity. I hope he stays in jail at least 13 years but 130 wouldnt be bad either!

Oh, I really feel he is guilty of all the crimes he has been accused of. He is just a punk. Why should he be treated like royalty because he was a football player? That does make him above anyone else. I hope he gets the maximum sentence.

I think he would have eventually gotten his just desserts, regardless of the number. At this time his number was up. He probably thought, with great arrogance, that he got away with it the first time and could do so again.

Oh, yes I agree. I think he is just a smug so and so. I can't stand him. It only shows that you reap what you sow. He is not that intelligent really, is he?

Oh, I do know that what goes around comes around. I have seen it many times. I have faith that if you are a bad person it comes back ten-fold on you. There is never a need to exact revenge on a person. It will happen to them as a result of their actions. And when it does happen it will make a stinging blow.
