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.

.........................Did someone "set up" OJ?.........Did someone lie to OJ about what was in that hotel room?...............Is someone out to "get" OJ?.................THINK.........who is responsible for what YOU will do today?.....................If that is not self explanatory, then try this................Please list, for everyone to see this morning, the men who forced OJ to plan, enter, and carry out, the activities of the hotel room....................

My hope is OJ goes to a dark dingy cell for the rest of his pathetic life. As far as the race card so many people love to play, screw that. Race has nothing to do with it.

.............................You know,..............life is not that hard to figure out..........I always say remove the elephants from the picture and what is left is the truth.............Remove the hotel occupants, OJ's bravado, and society in general..........what is left?............OJ exhibiting a level of stupidy that is hard to understand (by most of society)........Should one show compassion, or empathy, due to OJ's stupidity?.............No............Should one show leniency due to OJ's stupidity?................No.............Should one gather the facts, apply the rules of law, issue punishment.............YES....................Like I said, it is not that hard to figure out............

just a thought    

Hey Max 61 - I think the hardet part of this (or any trail case) is truely trying to figured out what REALLY happened BEFORE DURING and AFTER the crime(motive, opportunity, action)..yes there is audio on what "happened" at the scene but how are we to know that this hasnt been corrupted in some way or what the exchange was BEFORE this took place..? Again I wasnt there Im assuming you werent..So the only people that truly know what "happened" BEFORE DURING and AFTER this are OJ and the other felons he may or may not have employed to carry out his "level of stupidity" and the guy pressing the complaint (who also has a record)..Moreover this will be an even tougher case due to testimony from the other co defs., popular opinion and the media Theres a creditability issue for the "witnesses"(they were the Co D's that are pleading in lieu of longer jail time) but also a need for fact...Compassion leniency empathy is shown to celebrities day in and day out (look @ Orlando Bloom) because of their status in POPULAR culture..Where does that score on your "level of stupidity" meter..Celebrities get off cause they can afford over priced legal teams to dig up the "shadow of doubt " needed to skate by in our legal system..Again what level of stupidty is this..? If justice is blind then why cant it see past the hype and hoopla and rule on fact versus who your lawyer is..? Is it right that just becaue you can afford to buy a trial that you get off NO..its just the level of studidity of this nation/culture and legal system..

Will OJ do time..?

I dont know

Should OJ do time.? maybe

But thats for the FACTS to decide..period

You know what I always say "people that always say the same thing are douche bags"

................Hello #93 Thought..............To answer your question...............As to the audio, I would not think the DA would rely on that, too much...............No, I wasn't there, I was in another state..........I also, think that OJ and the four men with him, and the men in the room, are the ones who know the truth..........As to the records that each of the men have, it may not matter that much due to the actions that took place.................As to my "level of stupidity" meter, it registers pretty high when a person, talks about and plans before (conspirancy) (intent to commit)........enters a hotel room doorway with a firearm (impersonating an officer).(coercion)........... and leaves thru a hotel doorway with items in hand (robbery)...............As to all the other crimes and results of the nation, Today it is OJ...........What you are asking is can I justify society in general..........NO...............If one studies the judicial system and understands how and why it works.......things do not seem so imperfect........However, there is a good question as to who decides the value of a particular attorney................I always figure, don't get in trouble and you won't need one...................I also, think that real estate agents live off the hardships of others just as attorneys do.......................as to saying the same thing.........hmmmmm.................I assume you mean saying the same thing over and over and over.............Well, that would depend on who was saying it.........and who were they saying it to.......wouldn't it?...............

Youre cool and its nice to see that not all TMZ posters are neo-nazi, celeb-obsessed, wind bags just looking for something to do in between jenny jones reruns (yes I know shes no longer on the air..big deal so what..wanna fight about it), waiting for their baby daddys kids to get home so they can cook them up some mac and cheese w/ weenies and ketchup..


I like youre a little smug but so smug as that you inspire someone to knock your teeth out..

If youre ever in California and want to watch a turtle race and have a drink hit me up..

..................Hello #96 Thought................Actually, I don't watch that much TV..........The only celebs I would be interested in are Tony Bennet, and Robert Duvall............that ought to tell you way too much about me.............Did you look up smug?.................It is not what you intended...............You were probably thinking......."you think you are so smart"..............The real question is whether my thoughts strike you as the truth,...........even though you don't like the presentation?.....................And then we get to the sentence where you want to knock my teeth out!...............Hmmmm...............let me think on that for a minute...............................................................Well, the only reply to that sentence would be that, "I now know that you have run out of interesting conversation".....................Till another time..................

Me again Max..Jst wanted to clear up last go round..SOrry for the type-o..Was doing three things @ once not including trying to get out of the office and make dinner res with GF and parents so I apologize if my comments come off wrong..And I apologize if I stray with this comment as it Friday (stil doing way more than I should be on a Fri. morn) and I would LOVE to get out of this office before 4 today

MEANT - I think youre a little smug but NOT so smug that you would inspire ANYONE to knock your teeth out.

Wheater I find your truth in your words - sure theres truth there - but more in importantly INTELLIGENCE. But juding by your taste in entertainers (Bennet has a timeless voice akin to Sinatra perhaps..and Duvall is a great actor possibly the BEST supporting actor working..? but this forum may not be the place for that) Im sure you are not short in that department.

I would never resort to physical confrontations just because a discussion isnt going my way..Im 30 yrs old those days are long gone..LOL

Offer still stand - If youre ever in CA

Until then...

The HELL is not 'about race'!! I don't remember ANY of this b.s. 'outrage' when this was Robert Blake or Robert Chambers or James Keown or the Kennedy cousin or Sid Vicious and now Phil Spector. Bottom line if the woman he were accused of killing was BLACK the media would have been over and done with this a long damn time ago and as for murder why don't you tell that to Miriam Westpahl's family because a WHITE WOMAN shot her she only got 9 YEARS for a murder. That goes a MILLION times for a the white male serial killers the a-hole media glorifies and you fake a-holes have a sick 'facsination' with you wnat to talk about 'justice' HA this country is notorious for letting 'murderers' get away with it but oh I forgot that was 'the past' and we can't dwell on that unless it's something YOU ALL are pissed about. I'm sure Amadou Diallo and Sean Bell's families could educate a lot of you whiny hypocrite fakes on 'justice' or William Bennett who spent 2 weeks in prison and couldn't eat his meals because other prisoners were allowed to spit in it calling him 'baby killer'. All because a WHITE MALE Charles Stuart who WAS the 'real killer' said a 'black man did it' which apparently is the ONLY damn time you bitches care a clump of dirt in New York is where your 'outrage' is.

To all those 'race has nothing to do with it folks' were ANY of you this angry when this was Robert Blake or the THUG from "The Sopranos" who killed a NYPD officer or Charles Stuart or Scott Peterson or the animal who took little Jessica Lunsford or Lousie Woodward or Micheal Skakel or Claus von Bulow or Joel Schoenfeld or course NOT!! And a LOT of these commetns only PROVE it's true as for geeeeeeze for brains look who in the HELL is talking!! Did Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacy or Jefrrey Dahmer get raised with those same 'values' you spoke so highly of?!! I guess if it were RACIST hypocrites like you raising him but oh that's right I forgot when it's a white male or in the case of the 'soccer moms' who kill thier kids it's ALWAYS some 'disease' or 'affliction' that makes it happen. You have the nerve to whine about the 'race card' when you all keep playing the 'crazy card' or a 'black man did it' the oldest one in the book. Funny I thought that was the media's job!

..............#100 lisalee................My first thought, to your post,.............is why not go ahead and list Chin, Atilla the Hun, Xerxes, and Alexander the great..............They all killed many men and women...........But they were not Western European Caucasian......were they?............also known as Whites...............Your passion lies elsewhere...........Would it be interesting for you to know, the total number of murders in America, on a given day, and how many people killed on that day, are green, red, and blue?...............Then to know what percentage of the population is green, red, blue?..........................THEN, we both would know who was killing who, numerically.............not the why............just the raw numbers of how many greens, were killed by how many blues, .....................AND WHAT WOULD WE DO WITH THAT INFORMATION?..........THAT IS THE REAL QUESTION?...........My thoughts:....Every one is on the ladder...........10% on the top........80% in the middle..........10% on the bottom.............again, not the why, just raw numbers...............Therefore, it is quite possible, that man is where he is, with little movement up or down................and that is the life...........So, if that is true...........one may not be able to change much of anything.......Think of all the civilizations before us........we are doing the same things they did..........We can't do much different, until man comes to grip with religion and science............One hears your anger in your words, but I can only see thru my own eyes.........I think OJ made mistakes that will put him in prison.
