Justice Delayed is Justice Denied--Usually

OJ Simpson, who got away with a double murder years and years ago, was found guilty of robbery and kidnapping yesterday in Las Vegas. He could go to jail for the rest of his life, but I predict only a few years, perhaps a few as two, but more probably 10, although if I were the sentencing judge I would give him the maximum because of his previous crimes. Colorado allows a sentencing judge to consider crimes of which the prisoner was acquitted, why not in Nevada?

The photo is of my favorite part of the trial, when the jailers put the cuffs on to take the guy away for processing into the Department of Corrections. Sweet. And all the more sweet for how rarely I got to see it in my less than stellar career as a prosecutor.

Jailed at last, jailed at last, thank God Almighty he's jailed at last.


They have a saying here that roughly translates as..

"God's windmill turns slowly, but surely."
Good one
