Disgraced Ex-Cop Mark Fuhrman: "Everyone Else" Let O.J. Simpson Get Away With Murder (VIDEO)

Disgraced Ex-Cop Mark Fuhrman: 'Everyone Else' Let O.J. Simpson Get Away With MurderFifteen years ago, Americans watched the "Trial of the Century" -- the O.J. Simpson murder case. The bloody glove, the car chase, the murdered couple, and the football star who went free. ... Memories of the crime are still vivid. Men and women can still recall where they were, when the infamous "not-guilty" verdict was announced.

On 'Oprah' (weekdays, syndicated), former detective Mark Fuhrman shared his regrets about the case -- and explained why the killer escaped. Fuhrman blamed O.J.'s acquittal on almost "everyone else." The ex-cop said that he and his LAPD partner did a great job. But according to him, the prosecution and the rest of the police department messed up, allowing Simpson to get away.

However, as Oprah Winfrey pointed out, Fuhrman may be to blame. He may have helped the killer evade justice.

Winfrey said that the ex-detective "lied on the witness stand," which is true. During the trial, the defense called Fuhrman a racist, accusing him of trying to frame O.J. Simpson. When he denied this, they played a tape of him saying the "N-word." Ironically, the detective was the only person found guilty in the case. Although O.J. went free, Mark Fuhrman has a criminal record -- for lying to the entire courtroom. And Fuhrman's lies helped O.J., by discrediting the cops in the eyes of the jury. "How could you say you didn't do anything wrong?" Oprah asked him.

Fuhrman declared that he had no regrets, adding that his lies had "nothing" to do with the case. And he was angered by the implication that he was to blame. Even fifteen years later, the O.J. murder trial is still creating debates, denials, and strong emotions.

Fuhrman's really got it wrong. He bears almost all the responsibility for this case falling apart. Given his history with OJ, he should never have stuck his nose into this case unasked. He should have stayed as far away from it as possible and let those without an ax to grind do their jobs. His many personal biases tainted every piece of evidence he touched and every bit of testimony he made.
