Mark Fuhrman was an embarrassment during the case and his testimony was crucial in setting OJ Simpson free. How FOX hires these cretins is amazing to me.

Fuhrman wouldn't answer a question about his screwed up testimony and went off.

News Hounds: Mark Fuhrman Freaks Out Over O.J. Simpson

In part two of the interview, Colmes confronted Fuhrman on the role of racism in OJ’s acquittal. “You got into some controversy during your testimony. They tried to paint you as a racist… Does that bear any relation to the acquittal of OJ Simpson?”

That's when Fuhrman began to lose it. He called the racial angle “apples and oranges…. I’m not answering that question…. I’m done answering that.”
