The five-time Pro Bowler stated that the incident has angered many people and what everyone is witnessing is a reaction of fear that nothing was going to be done about the murder. He recalled the 1992 riots in Los Angeles where police were filmed beating up black motorist Rodney King as he laid on the ground. White law enforcement officers like Derek Chavin will always continue to abuse black men until the US justice system takes some strict action, Simpson added. While the NFL icon understands that it takes time to investigate and arrest someone, he ‘guaranteed’ everyone that if Chauvin was black, he would have already been in jail. Simpson has spent nine years in jail after being convicted for armed robbery and kidnapping and was released in 2017. He currently lives in Las Vegas. Also read | Here’s how Joe Biden responded to Donald Trump mocking him for wearing a face-mask: US presidential elections(Image credit: AP) OJ Simpson took to Twitter this week to speak about politics ahead of the upcoming elections.
