When it comes to putting “experts” on camera to discuss a particular event, there is no network better at finding the most disgraced personalities to explain things to their viewers than Fox News. One of the most despicable personalities in the Fox rogue’s gallery of tainted individuals is the former detective made famous by the O.J. Simpson case, Mark Fuhrman.
It seems to matter little to the “fair and balanced” network that Fuhrman pleaded “no contest” to a felony perjury charge stemming from the O.J. trial, or that he has been repeatedly caught making racist statements. The folks on Fox News’s “The Kelly Files” needed someone to explain why Michael Brown was actually the aggressor and not the victim, and Fuhrman was their man.
Host Megyn Kelly starts by asking Fuhrman whether the claim that Michael Brown would have pushed Officer Darren Wilson into his car, begin running away, then turn and run back to the officer, sounds plausible to him. Fuhrman replies that you can never predict what somebody might do on the street, then, with no qualifiers at all, he says, “Michael Brown, from the onset of me reading and catching up with this story, he has appeared to be the aggressor from the very beginning.”
Fuhrman goes through a chronology that he seems to accept as fact, although none of it has been proven to be true. This is how he reaches his conclusion that Michael Brown created the circumstances that caused his death. He tells Kelly, “These are the facts. The witness laid this out.” Kelly replies, “That’s one witness’s account.”
There’s a pause, then Fuhrman continues:
I didn’t hear this before. But I could conclude exactly what happened, just from the little tidbits of information.
Kelly wraps up by asking Fuhrman what it means to him that the autopsy results show most of the bullets struck Brown on the right side of his body. Fuhrman replies that he wants to know whether the officer is right or left handed. Photos of Officer Wilson obtained by the media seem to provide that answer. In the photo below, it appears that the officer’s gun is on the right side. Also, after receiving his award and shaking hands, the photo shows Wilson carrying the award in his right hand. Since he shook hands with his right hand, requiring that he hold the award in his left hand, if he were left handed he most likely would have continued holding the paper in his left hand.
Fuhrman does say that what he has read suggests the “grappling occurred between two right handed individuals,” but he and Kelly both conveniently leave out the information that the autopsy revealed no powder burns on Brown’s body, which means that he could not have been shot at close range, as Fuhrman is suggesting.
