Mark Fuhrman returned to the Fox News airwaves for a second night in a row, this time falling into the welcoming arms of Sean Hannity. Birds of a feather.

Here is your most classic media quote of the week. Disgraced lying racist cop Mark Fuhrman, while whining about how mean everyone is being to the police officer who pumped six bullets into Michael Brown, actually complained that "this is a hostage negotiation, not a homicide investigation."

The hostage, according to Furhman, is the police department, and Darren Wilson in particular. Mark is very upset over Jay Nixon's statement earlier Tuesday where he did that radical thing and called for a "vigorous prosecution" of the case. Fuhrman, in his own words:

When the governor of the state in which this officer resides and works calls for his head, I think it trickles down in a negative way from there and it will end up in Ferguson. So when you have politicians, when you have a crowd holding Ferguson, this is a hostage negotiation situation, not a homicide investigation.

That's what it's turned into. I pity the grand jury participants. They were going to... this is going to weigh on them in ways that we'll never know and they'll never talk about it and it's a secret process. But I really am fearful for this officer. He is not going to get any justice. He's not even going to get a say.

Mike Brown got no say or justice, too. Mike Brown is dead. Darren Wilson is alive and busy recruiting his pals to get "his story" out there. Mike Brown is dead. Darren Wilson will be permitted to testify at the grand jury proceedings against him. I'm not feeling a lot of injustice for Darren Wilson in that scenario.

And you know what, Ferguson? If you don't like those racist cops policing your community, Mark Fuhrman has some advice for you and your police force:

Well, when you listen to it, of course you can imagine my reaction to it, but if the citizens of Ferguson, MO and the United States want law enforcement to simply do nothing, then my advice to my brother officers is roll up your window, turn on the air conditioner, put an iPod on and just drift through your career and see how society likes it.

Well, certainly that isn't the answer, but that's what the public wants. I have no idea why somebody would want to become a police officer in that environment and the way they're treated. They're treated like dirt.

Would he like a little cheese with that whine?
