    I think he killed them too but you can't punish him for a crime for which he was exonerated by upping the penalty for another crime. 33 years seemed awfully stiff for what he was convicted of.

    Probably. I don't see him being happy living on a $1700 a month pension.

    Just for fun, what would they put him in charge of? Antiquities preservation? Oh, I know, let's put him in charge of a federal task force on domestic violence. He's perfect for that.

    Calculating how much O.J. Simpson made from NFL pension in prison.

    O.J. Simpson might have made more than $600,000 during his eight-plus years in prison.

    After Simpson was granted parole on Thursday, that money is now his to spend and can't be touched by the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald L. Goldman, who won a civil judgment against Simpson in February 1997 that, including interest, is now worth more than $40 million.

    The reason the income is O.J.'s, unlike other money he might earn in the future, is because his NFL pension is protected by state law.
    Crime pays.

    I understand your point but he wasn't in prison for homicide. Our criminal justice system shouldn't be used to "get someone back" for a crime of which they were acquitted.
