O.J. Simpson Will Be Released From Prison & The Internet Is Not Happy About It

On Thursday, O.J. Simpson was granted parole from prison in Nevada, where he has been behind bars since 2007. After being arrested for a robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada, Simpson was sentenced to serve anywhere from 9 to 33 years. But, on Thursday, a four-person parole board granted Simpson the chance to be a free man and now, he can be released as early as October 2017. He has been in prison for the last 9 years.

While many people believe O.J. Simpson should be “locked up for life,” due to the 1994 murders of Ron Goldman and his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson – the parole board was forbidden from allowing his involvement to play any role in their decision. As well, Simpson was acquitted of charges involving the murder – although, people believe he was the one who had killed both individuals.

The justice system often times works in a strange way. However, looking at this 2017 court hearing makes many individuals who were around for the trial of the 1990’s feel – well, old for one – and also, mind blown that O.J. Simpson will be a free man.

Due to this preconceived notion that “O.J. Simpson is a murderer,” many people on Twitter were unhappy that he was granted parole.
