O.J. Simpson has gone from jailbird to law-and-order crusader.
The famous ex-con took a pro-cop stance Thursday when he backed an Ohio officer who fatally shot a knife-wielding teen and ripped into NBA star LeBron James for a tweet that named and shamed the lawman.
“The police guy had no choice, he responded,” said the Juice, who in 1995 infamously beat criminal charges that he himself used a blade to hack his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her pal Ronald Goldman to death.
“We wished he could have pulled a Taser but in that incident, if he didn’t do what he did, another young American would have her life taken.”
James drew the attention of the 73-year-old convicted felon by putting out a controversial tweet about the death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant — who was revealed to be wielding her knife only after the basketball star posted his comment.
