Porkins Policy Radio episode 121 F Lee Bailey and Pat McKenna on OJ Simpson and Criminal Justice

Today we are joined by private investigator Pat McKenna and legendary attorney F Lee Bailey for a discussion of OJ and the criminal justice system. We begin by discussing some of the recent media reports about OJ that have come out in the tabloid press. The three of us address these bogus claims that OJ was thrown out of the Cosmopolitanism hotel in Las Vegas. Lee also tells us about his background in the Marine Corp and how he became one of the most famous trial lawyers. We then move onto some new research by Brian Heiss looking at a forgery in Nicole Simpson’s dairy. We discuss how Fred Goldman helped lobby California’s legislature to allow the diary and the forgery into the civil trial. Lee gives us his legal perspective about the civil trial and the ways in which it was conducted. He talks about the numerous instances in which false information was introduced as evidence, and how this has convinced many that the civil trial was the “good trial.” We explore how the media treated the criminal jury and how this influenced the civil juries verdict. Later Lee and Pat discuss the criminal trial itself. Lee talks about his cross examination of Mark Fuhrman. He talks about the moment he knew he had caught Fuhrman in his own web of lies. Pat and Lee also touch on how Judge Ito wouldn’t allow several witnesses who were willing to testify that Fuhrman was a virulent racist.

In the second hour Lee and Pat discuss their book project which deals with both OJ’s criminal and civil trials. They talk about how their book will differ from the plethora of OJ related books. Lee in particular touches on several important aspects that will be included in the book that were not widely know during the trial. Lee and Pat discuss the continued importance of truly understanding this case, and their hopes for the future generation. Lee also talks about his own theory as to the motive of the murders: a drug killing that meant to target Faye Resnick. Later Pat and Lee discuss the school they have founded for teaching investigative skills. Lee talks about the need for teaching trial lawyers how to turn facts into evidence, and how many lawyers are not fully equipped to carry out investigations. Pat talks about a similar problem facing private investigator’s and what he will be teaching. We also talk about the role that Hollywood has played in crafting our understanding of criminal justice. Lee talks about the problem that show’s like CSI have had on the criminal justice system. We round out the show by talking about some of the problems with forensic evidence. We talk about things like shoe print analysis and how that played a role with OJ and the infamous Bruno Magli shoes. We also touch on the problems with hair and fiber analysis.

From Brian Heiss:

What if I told you that the most important and far-reaching story from the Trial of the Century has never been told?

In the People of the State of California v. Orenthal James Simpson there was only one item of evidence that Judge Lance Ito deemed “information that is of vital public interest”: the Mark Fuhrman Tapes.

The Fuhrman Tapes were a series of interviews that screenwriter Laura Hart McKinny conducted with LAPD Detective Mark Fuhrman over a 10 year period. McKinny was developing a fictional screenplay about women in the police department and to what extent they were successful working in areas of high crime. It was critically important for McKinny that the screenplay be as accurate and realistic as possible, to achieve this she conducted extensive interviews with multiple LAPD officers, ride-alongs and extensive research at the Los Angeles Police Academy.

For over 20 years the news media has reduced that Fuhrman Tapes to slogans: “The N-Word” and “The Race Card.” However the harsh reality is that the Fuhrman Tapes are about: Police Brutality, Racial Animosity, False Arrests, Coerced Interrogations, Police Misconduct, Racial and Economic Profiling, Planting Evidence and, the Use of the Chokehold by Law Enforcement.

Most people are unaware of this reality because unless you were in Judge Ito’s courtroom on August 29, 1995 or watching the live television broadcast of the hearing, you’ve never heard the Fuhrman Tapes. The complete presentation of the Fuhrman Tapes has never been rebroadcast on television or radio, no major newspaper or national magazine has ever published an complete, accurate, unedited transcript of the excerpts and to date audio of all of the excerpts is not available to the public on the Internet.

O.J. : VERITAS the Fuhrman Tapes is a feature length documentary (Runtime 115 minutes) which presents to the public the complete, unedited audio of the Fuhrman Tapes excerpts which have been hidden from history for over two decades. Using only archival footage O.J. : VERITAS the Fuhrman Tapes challenges the viewer to better understand the un-American manner which some Americans are treated by the justice system through a straightforward, commentary-free presentation of the facts about the Tapes and shares the opinions of both sides.

I am thrilled to provide the Porkins Policy Patreon supporters the opportunity to screen O.J. VERITAS : The Fuhrman Tapes. I believe that the last untold story of the O.J. Simpson saga, the Fuhrman Tapes, is potentially the most important and far-reaching.

I would be thrilled if you might share any feedback you might have (both positive and negative).

Porkins Policy Radio episode 53 Brian Heiss on OJ Simpson: Veritas The Fuhrman Tapes

Today I spoke with researcher Brian Heiss about his work looking into the OJ Simpson trial. We discuss Brian’s excellent film OJ Veritas: The Furhman Tapes, and the impact and role that Fuhrman played during the trial. Brian and I also discuss his comprehensive timeline of the murder, which plainly show how OJ could not have murdered Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman. We also discuss some of our general theories on the case. We will be talking again with Brian soon to expand on these ideas.
