The introduction to the Fuhrman Report and the links between the red bars above are the way they appeared when PoliceNET was online and the links were active. However, even when the links were functional, the sections of the report they pointed to consisted overwhelmingly of public information that could be found elsewhere. Rovaan was able to retrieve a cached version of the report, which you can read by clicking on the links below. To make them easer to read in sequence, the links have been rearranged here in order of I (one) to X (ten) signifying the first ten-parts of the report and from X1 (eleven) to X1X (nineteen) signifying the last nine parts:

Excerpts from 2003 Iago Discussion Board posts below in red are key typo corrections or additions to the original text:
The most frustrating thing about trying to get basic information on Fuhrman’s LAPD career is that huge chunks of it were purged from his personnel file when he was being investigated for police misconduct in 1995....
Between May of 1981 to May of 1983 he was on leave from the department trying to get a disability pension. When it was denied he went back to work on a closely supervised probationary period until he hit the streets again in December, 1983...
He officially returned to work in May 1983 but he went into a special “rehabilitation” and “evaluation” program called TARP and didn’t get assigned to full time patrol duty in West LA until mid December 1983 That’s why summaries of his return to work that you will find elsewhere begins with him as a West LA patrolman in ’84. The first black hole in the police report is what he did in the TARP program. The report says, “…many of the records for the period that Fuhrman was in TARP are no longer available.”
According to this report, Fuhrman began detective training in December 1988. He got his promotion to Detective II in 1994 as the result of winning a grievance. Those records are not available by law.
The rest of the report mentions several serious incidents in which records were not available or it leaves out important information. For instance, in 1986 Fuhrman’s partner shot a man who they said attempted to run over the partner with his car. The report does not say whether the man was wounded or killed and it does not give the partner’s name. The report mentions the ’87 incident where Fuhrman shot Joseph Britton five times. It gives Fuhrman’s version of what happened and it dose not give the names of the other three officers who where with him at the time. One of them had to be his partner.
In short, there is a lot of room in Fuhrman’s record to make him and the people he worked with invisible. It is difficult to understand in some places, and like Fuhrman’s critique of the Spokane serial Task Force report, it seems to be “carefully” muddled in all the right places to hide as much as it reveals... --Jasper
