I've been putting in so much time with Ford going around in circles (that's what almost everyone does at Ford these days) that it leaves me little time to get anything important done.
By now, ten members of the National Public Radio team have gotten copies of Iago in Brentwood, so they can never again say that they never heard of it. If they read only the back cover and the text surround the pictures they should be giving me a call -or doing some real work themselves on the sources they used for their reporting on the evidence against O.J. Simpson.
When NPR reported that "the police found" blood drops leading "into" O.J.'s. front gate they never went back to put a name on the policeman who made the discovery and passed it on to the press. One of those cops who took credit for the discover was Phil Vannatter. Fuhrman gives the credit to his partner, Brad Roberts. As you can plainly see in chapter 30 of Iago, the blood trail had to be leading out.
When NPR reported that "the police found" socks on a rug in O.J.'s bedroom that tested positive for his blood and Nicole's, they did not name the policemen. They were Mark Fuhrman and Brad Roberts.
When NPR reported that "the police found" a bloody glove on Rockingham, they did not say who the policeman was until Jeffrey Toobin journalist that some NPR movers and shakers have treated as a god called the man a racist. Jeffrey Toobin is the guy who gave legitimacy to the notion that the "black" jury that acquitted O.J. "didn't have the candle power to understand the evidence." That was is phrase. His wife was the one who told him that Mark Fuhrman put a black man named Jarvis Bowers in a chokehold and threatened to kill him for jaywalking in a white neighborhood. Still, he was appalled by Robert Shapiro's suggestion that Mark Fuhrman might have planted the Rockingham glove. In his O.J.-is-guilty book The Run of his Life (much praised by NPR) he said that he was shocked by the suggestion and that no such thought ever crossed his mind. Toobin was the source of much of NPR's reporting on O.J. (outside of Renee Montaign's excellent courtroom reports). Much of Toobin's wisdom came from the work that Mark Fuhrman did in building a spouse abuse case against O.J.
Remember the "bloody ski mask" that "the police" were supposed to have found in O.J.'s bedroom? See Fuhrman's note number 17. The whole idea of a bleeding killer comes from Mark Fuhrman's interpretation of the blood drops on Bundy.
Remember the stick in front of the Bronco that Fuhrman said was parked at an odd angle? Fuhrman was the one who tracked down the source of the stick. He makes a good case for where it came from. The murder weapon as been "found" six times now, all in places that could be traced to O.J. Fuhrman said that the place where he traced the stick is where the police would have found the knife if they had looked for it. He said that it was a Swiss Army knife and that he and Roberts found the box it came from. He and Roberts are the only ones who can be tied to the box - and the stick. The stick, however, is real. It had to come from somewhere, jus like the knife, the glove, the blood and the "history" of O.J.'s spouse abuse.
It's hard to get people to look at anything they have to think about awhile to understand. If you follow the timeline construction in A Mountain of Evidence you know - absolutely - that the stick and the glove were planted by people involved in the conspiracy to frame O.J. Simpson for a double homicide. The only person who can be tied to the stick AND the glove is Mark Fuhrman.
