O.J. Simpson, the disgraced and  former  football hero who’s serving a 33-year sentence for assault, robbery and kidnapping in a Nevada prison has reportedly asked President Obama to set him free so he can treat his life-threatening brain cancer outside prison.

According to a number of news outlets including the Huffington Post, the Telegraph and The National Enquirer, Simpson is taking desperate measures to secure clemency after undergoing tests on a brain tumor.

The Enquirer quotes “a source close to” Simpson who said, “He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find.”

According to the Washington Times, Simpson’s health has been deteriorating for years.

“He’s gained weight since his imprisonment, and also suffers from blurred vision, stuttering and failing hearing,” the paper reported.

  1. OJ, OJ, OJ, what a mess, you have made of your life, you could have retired a very rich, and happy man, and above all, you could have retired with dignity. To this day, know has broken your amazing record, what a waste of God given talent. If only you had stayed married to your first wife, your life would have been a thousand times better, you could have avoided all the drama, scandals, trials, and humiliation. Your first wife loved you, and married you, when you didn’t have a dime to your name, before you become, rich, and famous. The day you met that gold digger, Nicole Brown, and her drug dealing, cocaine snorting friends, was the beginning of your down fall. I wonder, do you ever think about how different your life would have turned out if you had only stayed married to your first wife. The second, you laid eyes, on Nicole Brown, you immediately divorced your wife, and left your children, what a fool. I guess, you finally see, that the grass is not greener on the other side.

    No way the President can pardon O.J., White folks will be all over President Obama.
    They will impeach him for sure. Don’t do it Prez!!!

  3. Why O.J. let his so call friends set up him is beyond me, the logical thing he should had done was to report the theft of his items to the police. O.J. is not serving time for theft, etc., (which is excess) but for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend. I do not see the President pardoning him.
