O.J. Simpson’s 1 Simple Question About Capitol Riots (Video)

O.J. Simpson is something of a polarizing personality. As such, it should come as no surprise that the one-time NFL legend has his fair share of detractors, even when he doesn’t stumble his way into the messy and deeply divided world of politics.

This week, in the aftermath of the riots at the U.S. Capitol, Simpson decided to throw caution to the wind and ask one simple question: “Is it truly justice for all?”

Essentially, Simpson was curious to see whether the U.S. judicial system, which apparently he is no big fan of, would punish the individuals caught on camera storming the Capitol and terrorizing politicians.

“They were destroying property and stealing things, and during the midst of this felony, somebody was killed,” Simpson said.

“So, I’m interested to see, is it truly justice for all?”

As of Saturday morning, multiple participants from the U.S. Capitol riots have been arrested. So for now, at last, the answer to Simpson’s question appears to be yes.

Simpson previously made headlines a few weeks back when folks noticed something especially odd in the background of his Christmas photo.

Once upon a time in another life, Simpson was an extremely a beloved athlete, actor and TV personality. Unfortunately, he is now best known for being tried for the murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Simpson was initially acquitted of the murders in criminal court, but was later found responsible for both deaths in a civil trial. Ironically his original acquittal made many ask the very same question he found himself asking this week.

Despite the fact that Simpson never served any prison time for the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson or Ron Goldman, he did eventually find himself behind bars.

In 2007, he was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with the felonies of armed robbery and kidnapping.

One year later, Simpson was convicted and sentenced to 33 behind bars, with a minimum of nine years without parole for the crimes.

The former NFL legend ultimately served his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center near Lovelock, Nevada and was granted parole on July 20, 2017.
