O.J. Simpson Requests Clemency: ‘I Don’t Want To Die Like Jailhouse Scum’

oj-simpson-in-jail

O.J. Simpson, who is still serving time in prison for kidnapping, assault and robbery, has requested a pardon from President Obama as he says he doesn’t have long to live.

The National Enquirer reported that medical records show that Simpson, aged 66, is suffering from a fatal malignant tumor in his brain.

The latest revelation about O.J. Simpson’s health also highlighted the fact that he has suffered for some time from a serious case of diabetes, a condition which is also potentially life threatening.

An anonymous source spoke to the publication about the alleged symptoms the ex-football legend is suffering from:

O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms He began suffering dizzy spells; nausea, lapses in memory – and the frightening symptoms continue to get worse. He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find. Now the prison docs are telling him they believe he has a brain tumour. They plan to run a series of tests on him, MRIs and CT scans.

Simpson is still serving a 33-year sentence in a Nevada Correctional Facility, and is not eligible for parole for at least another four years.

O.J. Simpson decided it was time to pen a letter to the president to request an early release from jail, He wrote:

Mr President, I know my life is coming to an end. Please, don’t let me die in prison. I feel the end coming. But I don’t want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum.

It seems that Simpson may not have long to live, with some estimates standing at just three months. The anonymous source spke about the fact the O.J. doesn’t look after his health:

OJ’s doctors have told him he could be dead in as little as three months because of his out-of-control blood sugar and blood pressure. But OJ doesn’t care. He knows he’s never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.

It remains to be seen whether or not the president will grant clemency to O.J. Simpson. If indeed the reports about his rapidly deteriorating health are true, he may have a good case for being released early from jail.

    He IS jailhouse scum! They have not ran any tests (MRI, Scan) yet, either, to prove or disprove his assumptions. If he didn't want to die in prison, he shouldn't have committed the crimes. It's as simple as that.

    Look I would not wish cancer on anyone, but to say he does not want to die like jailhouse scum, he should look in the mirror !!!!!!!!!

  15. Dave Barker

    It seemed to work well for the Lockerbie bomber. Plus Obama would do this for a black.

    LOL …… Dodged a Murder Rap but COULD NOT keep the Yigger Ignorance from seeping out of him and doing something stupid enough to end up in prison anyway …. LOL ……. FUCKINGNUDNICKNIGGERS …. too funny

  17. Steven Spitz

    The Common Jailhouse Scums should be offended! Perhaps one, or several of them will slit his throat in the prison yard so he can die like those whose lives he took? He doesn't deserve to get out of prison or to die with dignity.

  18. LJ Hamblin

    Oh, cry me a river, OJ. Would you rather die on the sidewalk like a stuck pig, same as you did to Ron and Nicole? Someone should have taken you out 2 decades ago.

  19. Patricia Burks

    He is just plain ole everyday scum, whether in jail or out. People die in prison everyday, OJ can do the same.

  20. Courtenay Crane Cross

    Does not wish to die like Jailhouse Scum? Gee…he should have thought about this before he killed his wife and innocent bystander. Football stars are not immune to consequences of choices.

    He is jailhouse scum! He needs to be there every bit of his sentence.

  24. Douglas D'Arnall

    Earth to O.J! The reason you are in jail is because you are scum! Having a tumor in your brain at least is proof that at least one thing resides in that cavity of your body.

  25. Wendel Sloan

    I think he should be granted clemency on the condition that he make a full confession to his wife and Mr. Goldman's deaths on pay-per-view, and give all proceeds to charity.

  26. Carlo Rossi

    "Common jailhouse scum"? This guy has a pretty high opinion of himself doesn't he. Wonder how all the jailhouse 'Bubba' scum are going to react to such hubris! …Don't fall asleep with your butt stuck up in the air OJ.

  27. Jeff McMahan

    I could be dead today or tomorrow if that truck runs the red light and hits me. Whats the point here? HE THINKS HE HAS BRAIN CANCER? He is now a Doctor? No tests have been run, he is non compliant about his diabetes? Maybe all convicts with a medical problem should become non-compliant so they may be released. I got $100 that says he is still kicking in 3 months. Any takers?

  28. Geronimo Smith

    He got away with 2 MURDERS.. One can just ASK yourself. How did O.J.'s blood get on the scene on SUNDAY when the MURDERS happened, when his BLOOD wasn't drawn out until 3 or 4 days AFTER the murder? And don't say it was PLANTED, cuz then your I.Q. is NILL/into the STUPID range. If he has ANY disease, let him DIE in PRISON because he has EARNED every minute that he is SERVING. There is NO CLEMENCY for him… Nicole and Ron Goldman the *good samaritan* didn't have a CHOICE, now did they. He got away with it, but now the ARMED BURGLARY,,, SO LET HIM DIE RIGHT WHERE HE IS, in PRISON.

  29. Stan Gibson

    If you don't want to be treated like a criminal then don't act like a criminal! To late now. You sought out and sank to your own level.

  30. Geronimo Smith

    Oh, Steven, you put it so ON THE TARGET… BRAVO.. and yes, his throat should be SLIT, but in a way that he bleeds out in EXCRUCIATING PAIN. O.J Simpson has EARNED all of the PAIN that there is on this EARTH, and in HELL where he will be GOING forever… no place like HOME/HELL for him.

  31. Sherry Aiken

    No doubt all that guilt he is keeping bottled up in his head, finally starting to fester out. He is no different than any other person placed in prison. But being the "ASS" Obama is he'll probably grant him clemency, then he will find that he was misdiagnosed.

  32. Rosemary Smith

    Does anyone believe he's ill? He is jailhouse scum, leave him there.

  33. Anonymous

    He is jailhouse scum. If you don't won't to die in jail , do yourself a favor and DON"T KILL YOUR WIFE. I know he is there for a different charge but he was guilty of murder , he just got away with that one. Karma is now biting him in the arse. He should never ever get out.

    YES!! FREE O.J.!! THEN MAYBE HE CAN COME COACH MY BELOVED LIONS TO A SUPER BOWL..HAHA!

  35. John A. Jenks

    Karma's a bitch, jailhouse scum. And guess where you're going after an agonizingly painful death? It sure as Hell won't be the first tee at Pebble Beach.

    plenty of other people have died while in prison…. why not you?

    But he is jailhouse scum! A very appropriate place for him to live out his life.

  39. Therese L Caleson Brown

    he is a scum in or out of jail so leave him there to rot!

  40. Joyce Suri

    Slitting his throat is far too easy for him. Better he should die a long, slow and very painful death, while his fellow inmates pick at his bones in the jail yard.

  41. Dan Fredriksen

    But OJ, that is what you are and perhaps worse. Jail House Scum. Rot in prison and enjoy the rest of your rotten existence. Murder…………………….

  48. Bill Swartz

    He is scum and he's getting everything he deserves. I wouldn't waste the time on an MRI or Scan. I sure won't miss him.

  49. Denise Wyckoff Marvin

    What a friggin con artist. He hasn't been diagnosed yet. He hasn't had any scans or MRI's just headaches and memory loss. I'd want to forget my past too if I was him.

    Why should he be any different, you did the crime now do the time, other criminal have medical issues and they are not getting clemency so why should you.

  52. Donald W. Grab

    you are jailhouse scum. the operative words are " they BELIEVE " have the cat scan abd MRI by a credible source
    and get a 2nd opinion., then write your brother in the white house if you truly are facing death in the very near future.
    you are also a murderer , so feel fortunate a black jury let you go free. your post about jailhouse scum is a racist slur.

  53. Edward Respalie

    ha ha ha ha what goes around comes around, seems to me the glove fits, let the murdering pig die a painfull painfull slow death

  54. Sharon Johnson

    I wonder what kind of mercy he had on Nicole. No OJ you are right where you belong SCUM bag

  55. Anonymous

    "I don't want to die like jailhouse scum."
    He didn't care how Nicole Brown died, did he?
    He did it. He knows he did. Everyone knows he did it, except the jury at his trial that got bamboozled into looking at everything other than the truth. Why else would he have been going for that ride in the Bronco?
    Leave him there. Leave him die. Then leave him rot there too.

  56. Tawny Pearl

    Maybe he should get a brain transplant from one of the kardashians. After all, it's his money who made them richer.

    Nasty break…..he's finally getting his due reward for his choices in life.

  58. Patti Knox

    Why shouldn't you die like jailhouse scum? After all that is what you are! You killed your ex-wife and her boy friend. You had money and that is what got you off. Guess your money has run out now. How does it feel to be helpless to the law??? I truly feel sorry for your children, but not for you ole' man. My true problem is, why must we taxpayers support the likes of you ????? Do you think you are special? Not in my book.!!!!!!! We all pull our pants on the same way. Right??

  59. Sandra Gossage

    I SURE HOPE OBAMA DOESN'T LET HIM OUT, AFTER ALL HE KILLED TWO PEOPLE HE IS JAILHOUSE SCUM

    if he had brain cancer he would have different symptoms like numbness or partial paralysis on one side of his body

  61. Leon Berkowitz

    Hes a scumbag….I'm sure he is making lots of birdies in the shower with his regular fourball. Let him rot in hell !!

  62. Anonymous

    Maybe his ex-wife and Ron Goldman would have liked a little clemency, too.

  63. Maggie Richards

    You are right where you should be you common jailhouse scum…..cold blooded murderer. His is a self-diagnosis. If he got out he would have a miracle recovery in a matter of weeks if not days. Leave that murdering bastard in prison where he belongs.

  64. Jim Davis

    Glad to see The Evil One will soon be dead. Too bad he didn't die of cancer BEFORE butchering 2 innocent people to death. Rot in Hell POS.

  65. Jim Davis

    Hey O.J., I'll sip a cool, tall glass of Florida's finest by the pool side in your honor tomorrow in the warm Cali sun surrounded by babes. LOL

  66. LaChance Shirley

    Nicole felt her life was coing to an end each time she called the police for OJ's domestic abuse. She could feel she was dying as he slit her throat – and poor Ron Goldman, acted like a man, tried to help – he felt he was dying.

    I guess this guy has been forgetting thing for a long time. We have created this monster and continue to do so.

  68. Justin Avery

    OJ is a person, his sins are not for us to judge. If he is to be punished them it is for God to dole out. That being said my wish is that when the Lord takes him home it is after much pain and suffering, may his withering bleached bones dry to dust after his live rotting flesh has been picked from his bones by carrion, rats, and fire ants.

  69. Robin Romeo

    Does he think Nicole wanted to die the way she did? We get to choose how we live, but how we're going to die is often not our personal choice.

  71. Jessica Dawn Redding

    While I agree with everyone that this low life jailhouse scum should die a slow and miserable death, we have to look at who our president is, and look at what he as done for our country so far.. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, so my opinion is that even though we all agree that OJ is where his sorry ass should be, I have a bad feeling about his letter to the President. BUT I feel that this too is another of OJ's tricks to try and get on the outside.. Do I think he would do something again if he was out HELL YES! I think with his sorry ass ego that he should be put in General Population and let his fellow inmates treat him like the Bitch he is.

  72. Jeff Slone

    I never understood the logic of setting someone free and clear from prison, just because they're ill. Did the crimes they committed or the murder victim's family suddenly disappear or cease to exist?

  73. Eileen Mallard

    Let him die where he is ! an eye for an eye, does not deserve to to see daylight again, he can go to hell and stay there

  74. Chaz Thompson

    Kinda interesting to see so many people calling him a murderer…pretty sure he has never been convicted of murder. Oh, but you THINK he did it, so it's okay to condemn him, laugh at his possible cancer, and hope he dies? Yeah, that sure as hell doesn't make you just as bad as your perceived idea of him or anything.
    Bunch of fucking hypocrites.

    As much as I can't stand OJ–especially since I'm positive he committed two murders; I wouldn't wish a brain tumor on my worst enemy. I was medically retired from the Special Forces (AF, 1993) due to a brain tumor. I lost most of my memory, eyesight and comprehension skills for 8 years. It all came back even though I still suffer from headaches and short term memory loss. One thing I didn't forget is the excruciating pain I suffered during recovery! OJ deserves to to die in prison and shouldn't get any special consideration from the President. It hasn't been confirmed that he has a brain tumor yet and he is already acting like he's got weeks to live. After what I've been through, I still hope he doesn't have that dreadful disease.

  76. Jeff Conway

    Wow, calling other inmates jail house scum, but of course not himself. Talk about a serious case of denial. Of course it's not surprising.

  77. Carl Scheel

    Sorry OJ, but if it were up to me you would do every second of the time you were sentenced to. You would still get the same considerations as any other prisoner when your eligibility for parole comes due. But after what you have gotten away with in your lifetime, then to pull that stunt in which you are currently incarcerated for, nope, you have to do the time. Anyone else that would happen to find themselves in your situation would be "Doin the Time." Just like the theme song from that old TV show "Baretta." "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time."

  78. Todd E Kager

    He seems to forget that he is one of those "common jailhouse scum" which, by the way, is sort of effed'-up because there are plenty of men and women in jail who take responsibility for the choices they've made in the past and are working hard to change themselves and NOT writing letters to people hoping to get out just because they ONCE were quasi-famous…but even more-so infamous for getting away with murder! Oh, and by the way…people die in prison every day…why should O.J. get special treatment?

  79. Karen Michel Minassian

    Clemency? Its called KARMA! You killed 2 people. That may not be the reason you are in jail right now but you don't deserve any special treatment. You did the crime, you do the time!

  80. Dyno N Mary Britton-Turner

    he got away with murder and couldn't keep his dumb ass out of trouble. never paid goldmans anything he is jail house scum he wouldn't improve society if he were released let him do full sentence

  81. Debbie Cooper

    Why shouldn't he die like the jailhouse scum that he is? I hope to hell, one POS president does not grant clemency to one POS habitual criminal who got away with murder and jokes about it. But he probably will.

    Yes Joyce. An extended period of blinding headaches, diminishing ability to use his body, and finally,his mind only retaining the memory of the brutal murders he committed sounds pretty good to me.

  84. Louise Cerrone Bell

    Semer Pettersen what the heck are you talking about. Bad things happen to good people, including myself, but my statement was ONLY about this particular article. Good intent and good deed lead to good Karma; while bad intent and bad deed lead to bad Karma.[2] According to the theory of Karma, good Karma contributes to happier life, bad Karma contributes to suffering. There is your answer.

  85. Terianne Turner

    Regardless of his health issues, he should be forced to serve his sentence. He isn't the first person to develop a potentially terminal illness (and by reading the story there is no proof of a definitive diagnosis at this time) in prison. It's too bad (not really) but that's the way it goes. THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER for OJ to get special treatment and receive a presidential pardon just because he was a pro-football player and actor. This should NOT happen. If he dies before his sentence is complete, that's just the way it goes. Maybe he should have thought about this before he committed his crimes (both those he was convicted of and those he wasn't convicted of).
