Despite his history with law enforcement, O.J. Simpson supports the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and believes defunding them will do more harm than good.
Simpson put his foot down and slammed West Hollywood for voting to cut the agency’s funding.
“I spent a little time in one of our institutions and trust me, we need police. “We need the sheriff’s department,” he said, referring to the time he spent behind bars during his murder trial of his estranged wife Nicole Brown-Simpson.
He detailed, “I always said they should just redirect some of those funds to better training and I always say to expanding the IA – Internal Affairs of police to investigate the police. But defunding the police as a whole or the sheriff’s department as a whole? No.”
In his most recent video, he further explained that he’s against defunding the police and the issue isn’t about policing, it’s about bad police officers.
“My defence in L.A. was about bad police officers, particularly a couple,” Juice said. “One who lied on the stand about his racist views and eventually pleaded the Fifth about his racism.”
He continued: “The other, the lead detective, who did something that nobody had ever heard of, something that he had never done and something I don’t think any detective in the history of law enforcement ever did.”
Simpson was presumably referring to detectives Mark Fuhrman and Philip Vannetter, who later defended themselves against claims of fraud, and corruption and incompetence, respectively.
In June 1994, Simpson led police in the case in that infamous white Bronco and led police on a chase. He was arrested and tried as the primary suspect in the murders of Brown-Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Simpson was acquitted the following year, notably after Simpson’s legal team blasted the LAPD throughout the trial for its handling of evidence and documented racism.
