O.J. Allegedly Wanted Firepower In Vegas

10/17/2007 7:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The AP is reporting that O.J. Simpson wanted armed men with him when he confronted two sports memorabilia dealers last month in Las Vegas, according to a co-defendant who pleaded guilty and has agreed to testify for the prosecution in the armed robbery case.

"O.J. said 'Hey, just bring some firearms,"' Walter Alexander told police in a transcript of his tape-recorded statement obtained by The Associated Press.

................I don't think that OJ will get out of this one..................It can only happen if the abilities of the local DA are not up to the task..............Usually, the larger the city, the more competent the DA...................therefore, the Las Vegas DA, I would assume is very good at his duties........... The DA there, answers to the county and not the city........Sometimes a good defense attorney,...........good up to a particular level.........becomes blinded by the light..........and forgets that he may be out of his league in trying to accomplish the impossible........It would be interesting as to what pressure the DA is dealing with at present........and from where....................It could be that the city would like for this to disappear.............for the good of tourism..............If the DA goes by just the law, then OJ is in deep trouble..........DUE to OJ's actions, BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER the hotel room...........You know, OJ could plead guilty to coercion, robbery, and try to avoid KIdnapping, and armed robbery and go for a reduced time...............Two years?.......Again, the abilities of the DA.........................It will be interesting to watch.........................

OJ is broken. He has no regard for his children's welfare. He is subhuman. I hope gets everything he deserves. Lock him away and forget him.

OJ will never get a fair trial in Vegas. They would never find 12 wife killers to form a jury of his "peers".

His lawyer should ask the trial be moved to LA.

Well, what can I say about OJ, but, the term, bring firearms? Now, if, he said, bring some M.F. guns with you! then, it would be move believable, although, I find it hard to believe, that OJ did not know about the guns, truth will out?

OJ doesn't have the money he used to have (it is well hidden anyway), so, if, he will not get the best lawyers money can buy, which, could be a problem for OJ, plus, if, old man Goldman gets wind of OJ paying his current lawyer any outlandish fees, hmm, where did the money come from? There may be a way to get to OJ's money after all, you know Fred Goldman will try to create as much pain for OJ as he can, and I don't blame him, if, he killed my son, he would not have to wait for a trial! I believe in the Old Testiment!

Hey, OJ could get life, but, say, if, he pleads down to about 10 years or so? Hey, he deserves it for killing Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson, so, in a way, it is poetic justice, to me anyway. Karma is a bitch! And if, anyone deserved to reap what he has sowed, it is that miserable SOB, IMHO!

just you watch    

O.J is a narcistic murdered. Why wouldn't he think he could get away with this crime, he is capable of beating a double murder wrap. I do believe the authorities will stick this crime to him even though it has probably been exagerated. But it has been over a decade since he murdered those 2 ppl and that is something I don't think America can soon forget. Weather he is guilty of this crime or not, the justice system will make him pay for his past on this latest charge. YOUR TOAST O.J!- you have no money to weasle yourself outtat his one!
P.S- give up on the race card ppl- there's no way it will fly this time!

everyone here is forgetting that if you are in the act of a robbery and one of your group has a gun you might as well be holding a gun.If someone was killed with one of those guns OJ would have been charged with murder even though he didn't pull the triger.

WHAT?    

This has nothing to do with race.

There are both colors involved this time, so throw your cards away

PS>Do you know anything about pride, dignity and self-respect? Or will your personal failures always try to bring down the whole bunch in an attempt to excuse yourself?
