Former NFL great turned criminal, O.J. Simpson, has issued a plea for clemency to President Obama, claiming he may have brain cancer and should be allowed to leave his Nevada jail cell and go free.

The 66-year-old is currently serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and robbery.

But he’s being tested for a tumor on his brain to determine whether he has cancer — and he’s convinced that he’s due to die any day now, The Mirror News reported.

So he’s turned to a higher power — the White House — and begged for freedom via a letter to the president.

Simpson has been in poor health for years. He’s gained weight since his imprisonment, and also suffers from blurred vision, stuttering and failing hearing. At one point, doctors warned him to lay off the sweets, else his diabetes would cause further health problems.

Simpson, who was jailed in 2008, would be eligible for parole in 2017.

He only has a bit over 3 years before parole.  Should do his time like a man instead of a weasel. 
Then again, he thinks he can get away with just about anything, including murder.

Well, he did get away with murder.

Just because he is eligible doesn't mean he will get paroled.   Remember, he was busted stealing cookies!

I think he should be released, not merely because of a sense of compassion, but because it will also enable him in the time he has left to continue his search for Nicole's real killer.

Btw, isn't he in a state prison (NV)? So what has Obama got to do with his incarceration?

If OJ wants help from OPapaDoc he'll need to change his name to Mohammed Kareem Arifat and renounce his "slave name."  Maybe then he'd stand a chance.

Legally, not a thing.  The President can only pardon/commute a federal sentence.

Of course, since when does Obama care about the law?

I'm not.

I plan to live forever.

So far, so good.
