“You know? It’s — it was my property. I wasn’t there to steal from anybody. And I would never, ever pull a weapon, ever pull a weapon on anybody.” After serving nine years (of a 33 year sentence) for robbery, OJ Simpson was granted parole on Thursday. (It’s a sign of the times that even OJ can barely make a dent in the nonstop Trump coverage.)

+ Should Simpson have been granted parole? The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin: “The American legal system is not supposed to be a karma-based organism of retribution for unpunished bad deeds, but that’s how it worked in Nevada. The Las Vegas case was a transparent attempt by the local authorities to issue payback for Simpson’s acquittal in the 1994 murders.”
