Kato didn't approach the cop; the cop approached him.
I admire your deductive skills, which is why I've been trying so hard to get you on my side. You know damn well that Fuhrman doesn't believe the idiotic story he tells in Hypothesis of a Murder (idiotic to you and me, not to the vast majority of his readers). It's not just a guess. There is enough in that chapter to eliminate all but one answer to that question. But you have a fix on Kaelin as the killer that sometimes gets in your way of acknowledging evidence concerning Fuhrman and Kato that you have to acknowledged to get some basic things right. Clearly one of these guys was dancing to the other one's tune. The question is, which one was the dancer and which was the musician?
Your analogy assumes that Fuhrman is doing his job as a detective and not as the man who masterminded the murders to frame O.J. Simpson. If Fuhrman is the killer - and only if he is the killer -- he did his job as a detective brilliantly…
What if two beat cops saw you reading a book under a tree? Suppose one of the cops arranged for a friend parked in a convertible behind the tree to thump the tree three times with a boxing glove on one of those silly accordion contraptions in cartoons and then to duck down out of sight.
Everybody knows that contraptions like that don't really exist and there is no reason for anyone to do something that ridiculous.
A few hours later, one of the beat cops walks up to you with three different cops while you are sleeping. His partner is nowhere in sight. The cop taps you awake with his nightstick, makes a cryptic comment about your clothes, gives you a sobriety test and tells you that someone you know has been busted for selling cocaine. The other cops leave. He then asks you if anything peculiar happened a couple of hours ago. You tell him exactly what you heard. The cop goes behind the tree by himself, and finds the cocaine.
Yes John, I now this analogy is more involved than yours. But so is the evidence. --Jasper
