Now he can rest knowing his wife's killer is dead.

The Juice is out of juice 🤷 What a waste of our collective time and attention that piece of shit was.

Wish Norm were still around for this. :(

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

His hell is trying on gloves that don't fit for eternity

What a terrible headline.

Fixed it: Murderer whose trial riveted the nation.

[-] UnfortunateDoorHinge@aussie.zone 7 points 1 month ago

Person who was charged and put on trial for murder died. It's a legal term. Journalists can get sued for defamation for blatantly calling someone who is not convicted a rapist or murderer. You can safely call OJ an armed robber and kidnapper though.

That's why the talking heads on tv tend to dance around the terminology and say "allegedly" and "accused of"

Looks like he got away with it after all

I really hope he donated his brain to science. The man went from world famous to villain in a single car chase. It's rare that people fall from grace so far, so quickly. I am not excusing his heinous acts, but I will say it would make a lot more sense, in my mind, if this man's anger and impulsivity was predicated on a TBI.

For people out of the loop:

One of the first studies to investigate the rates of TBI in offender populations was conducted by Slaughter, Fann, and Ehde (2003) who reported the rate to be 87% in a county jail setting. Schofield et al. (2006) then reported the TBI prevalence in all offender populations to range from 25-87% and, later, Williams et al. (2010) documented the prevalence of TBI in those settings to be 65%. In a more recent study, Ferguson, Pickelsimer, Corrigan, Bogner, and Wald (2012) found that 65% of male inmates, and 72% of female inmates, reported at least one TBI resulting in a change in consciousness. Finally, some of the current authors studied the incidence of TBI in a mental health transition unit at a county jail and found the incidence of TBI among a sample of offenders with a co-morbid mental illness to be 96% (Gafford, McMillan, Gorgens, Dettmer, & Glover, 2015).

I mean, he had been abusive for years, it was sadly not a unique nor surprising case, except for his fame, but fame doesn't make you a good person.

[-] Conyak@lemmy.tf 2 points 1 month ago

Why? He killed his wife in a fit of rage. There wasn’t anything special going on in his brain. A lot of pro athletes end up doing heinous crimes.

[-] p5yk0t1km1r4ge@lemmy.world 15 points 1 month ago

Get fucked OJ. Cancer was too good for you.

[-] Grobmobularb@lemmy.world 13 points 1 month ago

Hahahaha. I hope he’s loving Hell.

[-] Hello_there@fedia.io 6 points 1 month ago

So. You think he's having meetings down there with Cochrane?

Well he was world famous, I'm not from the US myself but most genX and older (~40+) knew about him and his trial at least superficially

[-] Omega_Haxors@lemmy.ml 1 points 1 month ago

Of course it's NYT. Fucking crackers.

[-] anarchoilluminati@hexbear.net 1 points 1 month ago

Damn, such a shame Norm MacDonald died before he could make a farewell joke.
