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, notwithstanding the statements to the contrary by the judge in the case. The fracas in the hotel room was a kind of minor dispute that probably would have attracted little notice from law enforcement if Simpson had not been involved. Instead, he was not only prosecuted but also received a wildly excessive sentence.”
