O.J.SIMPSON

A major American publisher has just cancelled a book by O.J. SImpson describing how he would have murdered his wife and her friend.  A small Montreal publisher is now considering making a offer for the worldwide English language right for the publication of If I did it ,Here’ how it happened.  Herbert Becker, the Montreal publisher believes Simpson’s “book will have tremendous selling power.”  Despite the obnoxious subject matter does this book deserve to be published under the banner of freedom of speech.?

    Of course it’s ok to publish it. Why anyone would buy it, when we already know how it was done. Could the profits be seized in Canada? If they can be and are, hopefully it will spoil his game to no end.

    It should be allowed to be published, but any publisher who’d do it is morally in the wrong. OJ shouldn’t be profiting off the crime. I am really disgusted with the prospect of it being published.

    To paraphrase the lady on her way to the guillotine (whose name I have temporarily forgotten) – O Freedom of Speech what crimes are committed in thy name.

    What if he wasn’t guilty, really. If he was framed by somebody. Alot of people hate others for different reasons. He was rich, he was a spoiled athlete, he made movies, he had an easy life. And of course, the other card. He surely had enough people who hated him enough for many or any of these reasons. Throw in jealousy. Who knows for sure. Maybe a book might give him some money back from the civil action suit which ruined him, imagine if he wasn’t guilty. Of course, if I saw him do it, I wouldn’t be writing this but what if?

    Let them buy the rights, publish the book, it won’t make the best sellers list anyway!

    He should publish it, why not? OJ was found innocent in a court of law. To say he is guilty is saying you have no faith in our legal system. Then you have no faith in anything.

    Publish the book and it will be a best seller.

    I have faith in Canada’s legal system just not the legal system in the States!!

    I don’t believe any legal system is beyond its mistakes. Canada has made not a few — consider the Air India trial, the deal with Karla Homolka, and those long-time prisoners who have been freed because of exculpating evidence. In general, we are better off in a system that lets a few criminals escape than one which convicts even one innocent person. Respecting the legal system is not the same as being uncritical of it.
