I am thinking about the redish speck above the Bronco's driver side door handle. We don't even know if it was actually blood, do we. It was destroyed somehow (they say) in the presumptive test that Fung did at Rockingham. It looked like a rather good size speck to me. It was in a "cleaner" place than the drops on the driveway what came up with lots of O.J.'s DNA, and was collected at the same time as those. So no reason for it to be "lost".
This speck, conveniently lost, was the reason for fuhrman to put himself inside Rockingham and "find" the glove.
It could have been taco sauce for all we know as Uelman suggested. Some of the vegetables in a taco sauce would give a positive reading in a presumptive test.
In one of the stories in the Rampart scandal, officers sprinkled ketchup at a crime scene to justify a search without a warrant, (did they actually bring ketchup with them??). The ketchup came up "inconclusive". That was all. Guess the criminalists don't taste the specks they test. Cops know all the tricks.
Fuhrman said in his book "Because I dealt with so many search warrants, I kept up on case law, particularly in the area of search and seizure. In fact, just weeks prior I had read People vs. Cain myself, and while I can't say that I was thinking about it as we decided to enter the estate, I certainly was familiar with the case." (Pg. 98) Fuhrman goes on to describe the "exigent circumstances" in that case. So now we have fuhrman studying case law, where cops get away with it, knowing all the dirty tricks from his years of foot beat in Westwood.
