O.J. Simpson's Confessions


Twice O.J. Simpson admitted that he killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Once in his suicidal state when he said the gun was for him and that he was "the only one that deserves it." Presumably he was talking about death. The second time was in his book "I Want To Tell You" when he talked about "my guilt." He personalized it with the pronoun "my."

In the letter he wrote prior to the slow speed Bronco chase, Simpson could not bring himself to say he did not have anything to do with Nicole's murder. He initially wrote he had nothing to do with it but then he crossed out the words "I had" taking himself out of the denial. This is about as blatant as it gets. Yet, many of his supporters include this phrase when they read his letter. This is because they are not being objective. They are not reading the letter for what it says. They are probably thinking to themselves, "We'll this is what O.J. meant." However, people mean exactly what they say or write. They should be asking themselves, "What did O.J. mean when he crossed out these words?" If Simpson meant to say he had nothing to do with Nicole's murder, he would not have crossed out the words "I had."

Simpson qualifies his denials by stating he "couldn't kill anyone." This is a common theme with O.J. Simpson. He wants us to believe he did not commit these murders because he is not capable of committing such an act. Yet, in his in ESPN interview he stated that he probably could kill someone if he was defending his family. This contradicts his repeated statements that he could not kill someone. I have not heard or read every word that Simpson has spoken, but I have never heard him say "I did not kill Nicole" or "I did not kill Ron Goldman." I have never heard him say "I didn't do it.' It is hard for guilty people to directly deny the crime.

The physical evidence linking O.J. Simpson to these murders is overwhelming. One either has to believe that Simpson committed these murders or that the police planted the evidence. In addition to the physical evidence, we have Simpson's own statements which clearly implicate him in this double homicide.
