You're going too fast again. If you insist on reading something stupid into everything I say that you don't understand immediately how can I every get you to think about anything entirely different from what you would normally expect? It can't be done. It's called " The Primacy Effect" (the power of first impressions to color everything that comes next).
"Reverse-reverse" psychology puts you in the same place you started. That's stupid.
My argument is that Fuhrman is not stupid. My argument is that he is very smart and the he has very specialized knowledge which makes it possible for him to predict things that most of us would never expect. I never expected. Most people would never imagine that a nazi would be able to command the admiration of most Americans including a large percentage of Jews and African-American's. The ability to do that is rooted in highly specialized knowledge in group psychology and the day to day realities of the criminal justice system. Large groups of people behave in very predictable ways when exposed to given conditions. If you know those conditions (Older black man accused of beating his white wife and killing her in a jealous rage with lots of evidence to back it up) you can predict what most people are going to do. In that context it was predictable that most Americans would put Fuhrman's racism on the back burner of their thought about what was relevant in the case.
You are also missing other critical elements of my thesis which is apparent when you say things like "PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE ASSERTION THAT THE ROCKINGHAM GLOVE WAS PLANTED AND THE ASSERTION THAT FUHRMAN DID NOT PLANT IT ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS."
My assertion is that Fuhrman planted the IDEA that he planed the glove along with a story that proved he couldn't have. His was on record for being exceptionally good at planting evidence. To be a star as the man who found the glove the worst thing that could have happened is for the glove to have appeared in a natural state. His partner planted the glove.
This is how the principle works in automotive design. A designer wants to push a particular theme. He knows before his starts that his boss is going to change something no matter what he does. So, he gives the boss something to pick on - a radius that's too big, a line that 's too low, whatever draws attention away from what the designer really wants to do. You'd think that the bosses would eventually catch on but they never do. They always go in thinking they have a better "eye" than their subordinates and they always walk away thinking they have proven it.
I have no idea where you got the idea that you and I were the only ones who saw that the Rockingham glove was obviously planted. That is the number one reason among O.J.'s defenders for eliminating Fuhrman as a murder suspect. It was one of the reasons Joe Bosco and others who believed O.J. did it argued that "they framed a guilty man." This is evidence that the killer had control over. It is also evidence that took a considerable amount of effort to create in its artificial state. That is, it would have been easier for ANYONE to make it appear that the glove was dropped there on purpose than to make it appear that it dropped there by accident. From the standpoint of arguing a case in court, it doesn't matter to prosecution's case how phony the evidence is if the jury can be made to believe the defendant is guilty. It then becomes an excuse they need to "get the son-of-a-bitch." That's all you need in the real world, a belief in the defendant's guilt and a good excuse to find him guilty. But in Fuhrman's case, a finding of guilt in a court of law was not important. What mattered was a finding of guilt in the court of public opinion.
My explanation for the wrist drop is in Iago (see photo on page 621).
The testimony of Dennis Fung put the five blood drops identified as O.J.'s "generally on the left of the shoeprints. Unlike the Rockingham glove these drops had to be planted in a way that the plant was not obvious. All you need for that is the first drop. A perfect alignment would have been a dead giveaway -- Jasper
