Mark Fuhrman blasts The People v. O.J. Simpson, which he refuses to watch

The controversial former LAPD detective, who’s the centerpiece of this week’s American Crime Story, says: "FX is attempting to establish a historical artifact with this series without reaching out to any prosecution sources. In a time when Americans read less and less and investigative journalism is on vacation, it is sad that this movie will be the historical word on this infamous trial. After all, it was 'based on a true story." This miniseries will most probably define not the historical record of the murder of two people, but the almost pathological desire to elevate a narcissistic, violent man to victim status just because he was a black athlete. Immensely sad. I am angry and bitter because the truth is a massaged reality." PLUS: Fuhrman did collect Nazi medals, according to Christopher Darden.
