*Mark Fuhrman, the former LAPD detective who found the bloody glove on O.J. Simpson’s property following the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, has slammed FX for its hit series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
“The last 20 years, I have watched the facts dismissed by the media, journalists and the public simply because it does not fit within the politically correct narrative,” Fuhrman told the New York Post. “At this late date, FX is attempting to establish a historical artifact with this series without reaching out to any prosecution sources. In a time when Americans read less and less and investigative journalism is on vacation, it is sad that this movie will be the historical word on this infamous trial. After all, it was ‘based on a true story.’”
Fuhrman also criticized the show for focusing too much on O.J., and not enough on the double-murder.
“This miniseries will most probably define not the historical record of the murder of two people, but the almost pathological desire to elevate a narcissistic, violent man to victim status just because he was a black athlete,” he said. “Immensely sad. I am angry and bitter because the truth is a massaged reality. Let’s play grownup for a while. This is not about me. There will be another O.J., and what we have learned is that political correctness and stupidity trump justice.”
In the interview, Fuhrman, who gave key testimony in Simpson’s trial, but later pleaded no contest to perjury after claiming he hadn’t used the N-word in the prior decade, listed three key pieces of evidence that were overlooked in the trial.
He listed a “bloody fingerprint on the side gate lock” at Brown Simpson’s house, an empty knife box that usually contained a four-inch lock-back blade, which matched the “wounds to [Ron] Goldman’s body,” as well as black sweatpants that were in the washing machine and were “almost without doubt the clothes Simpson wore during the murders.”
