Going to Peggy York might be a better option.
Whenever you go against the grain of “popular wisdom” you have to brace yourself for ridicule. I lurked around the Court TV discussion boards for a month before I got up the nerve to post, knowing the risks I was taking. Most people NEVER expose themselves to those risks. Exposing someone else, someone you care about for the sake of “truth and justice,” has got to be close to impossible for even the strongest human beings.
Consider what you are asking Lance Ito (human being) to do. This is not a “collateral issue” of whether she fibbed under oath about using a bad word. It’s a critical issue of what she knew about Fuhrman, when she knew it and what she covered up to keep the prosecution of O.J. Simpson on track. A real investigation of her relationship with Fuhrman would put the most intimate aspects of her life under scrutiny. If the evidence shows that her truthful testimony could have kept the O.J. case from going to trial…
Ever wonder why the Congressional Medal of Honor has been awarded to so few people in American history – and why most of them are given to the next of kin?
First you have to do something so courageous and so amazing that nobody would believe it if the evidence wasn’t conclusive and there weren’t enough credible witnesses to observe it and to live to tell about it. Acts like those are as rare as they are because most people who set out to accomplish them get killed before they can do anything of value. They get no medal for bravery. The only thing accomplished is putting another name on a tombstone. That’s all any reasonable person can expect from the attempt.
Moral courage on a level equivalent to the physical courage required to win the Medal of Honor is almost unheard of because it requires more time to weigh the odds of success and the consequences of failure. “Sticking your neck out” on a moral issue usually means getting it chopped off. Not even O.J.’s attorneys want the truth to come out. They could have gotten some of it from the judge’s wife but chose not to pursue it for fear of getting a less favorable judge. Choosing a theory and sticking with it is infinitely safer.
You are asking a man who loves his wife dearly to put HER neck on the chopping block. It seems to me that the one who has the make that choice is Peggy York. –Jasper
