Fox Cancels OJ Book Deal, TV Special
OJ's cap is rumored to be magical, and always
points in the general direction of "the real killers."
One drawback: sometimes it flies off his head of
its own volition and begins decapitating people.
I have very mixed feelings about this. First, his book proceeds, I imagine, could be seized to pay off his large civil trial damages, millions and millions of dollars of which are unpaid (due to the fact that most of his income is through pension plans and the like which cannot, by law, be attached to pay a judgment, under any circumstances).
I cannot see how fresh income from a book could possibly be protected from the Goldman and Brown families. Maybe there's some weird law that does protect such income. I can't imagine why there'd be such a law, though.
So I'm assuming this money would go straight out of OJ's pocket into the Brown and Goldman families' pockets.
Furthermore, I'm sick of those who claim -- like Alan Colmes, apparently -- that OJ is actually innocent. I want him to basically confess to the world. I want this son of a bitch to reveal the full depths of his sociopathic evil to his former (and perhaps still) supporters.
So this is a case, I think, where more information is better, as it usually is.
The fact that he's a loathesome killer shouldn't get him taken off the airwaves.
If Saddam Hussein granted an interview to FoxNews, in which he would partly claim his innocences but partly admit his guilt through attempting to justify his mass-murders, would people demand that not be shown on TV?
I think that would be both educational and very newsworthy.
And I view this OJ confession similarly. If an unconvicted killer wants to confess on national TV -- why should we stand in his way?
From what I read, the rights to the story were owned by someone else (why, I don't know.) Judith Regan contracted with them under the stipulation that the money go to OJ's children.
Ah, I didn't consider the possibility of fraud. OJ has something of value -- his "life rights," etc. He "sells" it to someone else, for a small amount of money. That money can be recovered by the Goldmans and Browns, but it's insignificant.
Now this third person owns his life rights and can sell them and keep the money for themselves. By agreeing to participate in writing his own book in this life-rights deal, he makes the life-rights even more valuable, and it can be sold for a great deal more.
And the money can't be attached, because it's "not OJ's money."
Except, in all likelihood, it really is. The person who bought the rights probably has a secret agreement to covertly transfer much of the money back to OJ. The Browns and Goldman's don't get it, not because they're not legally entitled to it (they are), but because you can't seize money you don't know about.
Just like gangsters whose homes and cars and furs and $3000 suits all belong to their mothers or grandparents.
