I believe the Goldmans already lost that court battle

That creature is worse than despicable, at the very least you'd think he would care enough about his kids not to do this. He'll justify it by saying he needs the money for them. No one should buy this book or watch the show. I wonder what the jury thinks of this, maybe some of them will still believe he's innocent

He just makes my blood pressure skyrocket and I just wish he would go away, but he really has sunk to a new low. I don't think there's any low he wouldn't sink to, obviously after committing that murder there isn't.

Put OJ on "Dancing With The Stars".

That will be next. Followed by a VH-1 special about how he went through a trying time and pulled himself up again. It will be a touching interview.

Celebrity (no matter how it is attained) trumps all else in popular culture.

The masses have a short attention span.

Gross.
I can't believe that I didn't remember his children. Those poor kids. Haven't they been put through enough?

And I am not surprised that Judith Regan, that soulless cunt, is involved in this.

I normally think television boycotts are useless and silly, but in this case I don't know.

I'm not happy about it, but I wrote my local Fox affiliate and asked them to consider not airing this program. That's the first time I've ever written something like that.

It just seems so hurtful, harmful, and just plain wrong to air something like this . I know people have the choice to not watch or to turn the channel, but then I keep thinking about the murder victims' relatives and friends.

I heard on the news that this book is number 30 on Amazon's best-sellers list.

I also heard that Judith Regan is doing this because she was in an abusive relationship with a tall, dark, and handsome athlete. Now, that's horrible, but work out your personal therapy in a way that isn't harmful to OJ's children and the Brown and Goldman families.

I think that was actually #30 on Amazon.com...and it's up to #24 now.

I guess a lot of people are interested in this trash but don't have the guts to walk into a bookstore and buy it

He know's worthless ass can't be touched now because the law is protecting him. So how about doing everyone a favor and just admitting what we already know? That being that he did in fact kill his ex wife and her friend! Come on give it up already and let the victims rest in peace and let their families get on with their lives! Geez hasn't everyone involved including his children suffered enough already because of his ignorance?

I refuse to buy this book think it's absolutely disgusting that he went and did this. If there was ever a worthless human being on the face of the Eart then it's OJ Simpson!

Absolutely, and I think that is an obvious attempt to justify and to be sympathetic. "Closure" in this case would be for OJ to go to prison, and there is no real closure for the Browns and Goldmans. It's not personal for Judith Regan, it's personal for them. I don't want to gain any insight into OJ's sociopathic mind, I've seen more than enough of it. I want him locked up.

The Associated Press
Updated: 1:33 p.m. ET Nov 17, 2006

NEW YORK - Under a barrage of criticism, Judith Regan says she published O.J. Simpson’s book “If I Did It” because she was a victim of domestic violence and thought the proceeds would go to Simpson’s children.

In an eight-page statement released Friday, Regan said Simpson approached her with the idea for the book, in which he hypothesizes how he would have committed the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

“I didn’t know what to expect when I got the call that the killer wanted to confess,” Regan said in the statement titled “Why I Did It.” “But I knew one thing. I wanted the confession for my own selfish reasons and for the symbolism of that act. For me, it was personal.”

Although Regan has acknowledged that Simpson does not directly say he killed the pair, she said she considers the book to be his confession.

“My son is now 25 years old, my daughter 15,” said Regan’s statement. “I wanted them, and everyone else, to have a chance to see that there are consequences to grievous acts. ... And I wanted, as so many victims do, to hear him say, ’I did it and I am sorry.”’

“I didn’t know if he would,” she wrote. “But I wanted to try. I wanted his confession.”

Regan said she did not pay Simpson for the book. “I contracted through a third party who owns the rights, and I was told the money would go to his children. That much I could live with.”

“What I wanted was closure, not money,” she wrote.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murder in the 1994 slayings after a highly charged trial. The former National Football League star was later found liable in a wrongful-death suit filed by the Goldman family but has failed to pay the $33.5 million judgment.

Regan said the book was a way to undo the “criminal injustice system” that let her own abuser go free.

She said she was abused while in her 20s by a man “who could charm anyone” and with whom she had a child. “And then he knocked me out, with a blow to my head and sent me to the hospital,” she said. She said police initially didn’t believe her story.

“I made the decision to publish this book, and to sit face to face with the killer, because I wanted him, and the men who broke my heart and your hearts, to tell the truth, to confess their sins, to do penance and to amend their lives,” she said.

“If I Did It,” published by ReganBooks — an imprint to Harper Collins, is scheduled for release Nov. 30. Fox is airing a two-part TV interview of Simpson on Nov. 27 and 29. Harper Collins and Fox are owned by News Corp.

After word of the book emerged, Regan wrote, she’s watched as the media “have all but called for my death for publishing his book and for interviewing him.”

“To publish does not mean ’to endorse’; it means ’to make public,”’ she said.

“If you doubt that, ask the mainstream publishers who keep Adolf Hitler’s ’Mein Kampf’ in print to this day. ... There is historical value in such work ... for anyone who wants to gain insight into the mind of a sociopath.”

If Judith Regan is so concerned about the Simpson children she could have donated money from her vast millions to help them. Or she could donate money to programs that help victims of domestic abuse. She's just narcissistic.

This is how that rat bastard is getting around the Goldman's judgement! I'll believe the money is going to his kids when I see it.

Judith Regan = Ful of Shit.

Had she just gone with the last point there, about the insights into the mind of a sociopath, I'd have a bit of respect, but the whole, "I was abused so letting OJ write a book gives me closure" makes no friggin sense.
