For the first time in 13 years the Juice is not loose. In the years since his acquittal OJ Simpson has basically convinced everyone of his guilt, and everyone (but him) seems willing to accept that this trial is society's second chance to get the verdict right. Not sure if that's "justice", but it feels like it.

What happened? O.J. happened. He has been bitten by the very source of his support at the beginning, and the reason he could afford those lawyers and sway those jurors: his celebrity.

We kept watching O.J. He revealed himself to be who prosecutors said he was.

A civil jury found him responsible for the murders. Simpson said he would spend the rest of his life searching for the "real killers" and has made no effort to do so. ...

Recently, Simpson wrote a book called "If I Did It," in which he tells the world how he could have killed his ex-wife and her friend hypothetically, of course. (The book was eventually published by Ronald Goldman's family.)

These are not the actions of an innocent man. If the world thought you had killed two people, including your ex-spouse, and you hadn't done it ... well, come on. In a thousand years, you would never write a book about how you might have done it.

The charges and punishment he's facing will probably be disproportionate to his recent actions, but will certainly be justified based on his past. Of course, our justice system is supposed to preclude this sort of double jeopardy, and OJ will probably make a convincing appeal.

What do you think should happen?
