In case you missed it, the legendary OJ Simpson was released from jail after 9 years. They snuck him out at night so that no one would be around to see it. He has promised to lay low and stay out of the spotlight. Some people think that he got away with murder. They might be right, but if so he isn’t the only one… He was in jail for armed robbery (he tried to reclaim his own merchandise) and he did 9 years of a 33 year jail sentence in a Las Vegas prison. OJ was one of those athletes who went from the very top to the very bottom. If he had only kept a low profile after his murder trial he probably would not have been in a Vegas prison. However, OJ’s biggest problem was that he was not very smart. His arrogance made him think that he didn’t have a bulls eye target on his back. He did, and when he went to pick up his belongings he gave the people exactly what they were looking for…. another chance to lock him up. There are people out there who just need to stay out of the spotlight. George Zimmerman is one of them. If he doesn’t keep his mouth closed and lay low they will find a way to put him in prison too. OJ may never get back the positive image he had, but at this point in his life he doesn’t need to. He has money, he has family and he has a reason to keep out of public view. If he wants to stay out of prison then hopefully this time he will do the “smart thing.” Right now it doesn’t matter whether he was found innocent or guilty. He is still one of the most hated men in the United States. Time will tell that story. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
