A friend at work told me a log time ago that when you see smart people doing stupid things you can bet that there is something else going on.
It was easy to look at Vannatter and Lange as "Dumb" and "Dumber" but you and I know that they didn't get where they were in the LAPD by being stupid. Ditto for Ron Phillips and Marcia Clark. These people knew how to do the job right - and they knew how to do it wrong to get results.
I was particularly struck by the search warrant that Vannatter screwed up just enough to bring Marcia Clark into the case (remember, he wanted Marcia. Lange didn't) and the way the Bronco and the blood drops on Rockingham were photographed. The only way to get photographs that bad is to do it on purpose. The only reason to do it is to confuse the issue of what was really there and what it could have meant. The same thing goes for the diagram of the Rockingham estate and the tight grouping of evidence at the feet of Ronald Goldman. Pure calculated bullshit.
I don't see how anyone can take a critical look at how these people operated on Bundy and Rockingham and come away with a different conclusion than the one you came away with. Everybody makes mistakes but, once again, we're dealing with a pattern of behavior that cannot be accounted for by chance. What the detectives on the Bundy murder case did was systematic "bungling." They made USEFUL "errors" in judgement, USEFUL "errors" in procedure and USEFUL errors of all kinds at every point in their make-believe investigation where a real investigation might have turned up a different suspect than O.J. Simpson. --Jasper
