Guilty of Incompetence is a hard hitting book by Bill Pavelic, that will expose the facts instead of fiction, and take you behind the scenes to see how LAPD and LADA helped create the OJ Simpson "race card", covered up the existence of suspect "Charlie", mismanaged the investigation and botched the "Trial of the Century".
Guilty of Incompetence
GUILTY OF INCOMPETENCE"
Back in June of 1994, I was of the opinion that the LAPD omissions in the murder investigation of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldmen were innocuous law enforcement mistakes....however.... it soon became apparent that the LAPD was consciously framing a guilty man and concealing the participation of "Charlie" and others. The involvement of two suspects was brought to my attention by an LAPD officer assigned to WLA Division, back in July of 1994.
Concealing "Charlie" was a deliberate and calculated LAPD-LADA move designed to obscure other “players” who were involved with OJ in the pre and post arrest “cover up” activities. The murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were being considered as a potential Death Penalty case and to seek the Death Penalty the LAPD and LADA would have to have shown greater "interest" in other players including AC Cowlings, Anthony Pellicano, former LAPD officer Ron Shipp, Jason Simpson and Arnelle Simpson.
The LAPD and the LADA gave a “free pass” to Ron Shipp, Arnelle, AC, Pellicano, Jason and others by making certain they did not "volunteer" and submit to a polygraph test and or subject themselves to a straight forward interview or police interrogation. [b]Instead of indicting a known “plumber” and wiretap “expert” the LAPD Robbery Homicide Division recruited Anthony Pellicano (The Hollywood Godfather) to assist Mark Fuhrman and his civil lawyer in “impeaching” credible witnesses with the use and “help” of “National Enquirer” and Geraldo Rivera, to name a few. The prosecution also benevolently “dropped” AC Cowlings, as a potential Grand Jury target, even after becoming aware of his “prior bad acts” and history of being an out of control freebasing cocaine addict. In June of 1994, the LAPD Robbery Homicide Division did absolutely nothing to see to it that AC Cowlings was held accountable for aiding and abetting his friend OJ Simpson in the infamous Bronco chase. The unregistered gun that was in the Bronco at the time of the chase was "given" to OJ by a Los Angeles Police officer who is currently a Deputy Chief.
I am certain that AC Cowlings was “dropped” as a Grand Jury target because he was a cooperating “witness” for the law firm of Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp, in a major federal drug and money laundering case. With AC Cawlings in their pocket and LAPD Robbery Homicide detectives on the pay roll of Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp laws firm, Daniel Petrocelli had no problem “winning” a $33.5 million dollar wrongful death settlement against OJ Simpson. In his book “Triumph of Justice” Mr. Petrocelli does not discuss “Charlie” and or AC Cowlings “contributions” in the federal drug case that his firm handled a year or so earlier.
Unlike what takes place in drug cases - where the investigators follow the money, to get to the bottom of any criminal celebrity case in Los Angeles, one has to follow the lawyers, the prosecutors, the cops, the publishers, the tabloid media and the investigators. As an example, the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office and Deputy District Attorney Chris Darden in particular knew damn well that Mark Fuhrman’s criminal lawyer (former LAPD supervisor) was the very attorney who successfully defended Sgt. Stacey Koon in the Rodney King beating, a case that triggered the worst rioting in California’s history. Even more pathetic or insulting to the citizens of South Central Los Angles was the fact that the LADA prosecutor who lost the Rodney King Beating case was in charge of convening the Grand Jury “against” AC Cowlings and Anthony Pellicano. A DA can indict a ham sandwich when it wishes to do so. Letting Anthony Pellicano and others off the hook was a tactical decision that permitted Charlie and others to escape scrutiny.
In “Guilty of Incompetence”, I will expose the prosecution players who abdicated their responsibility and accountability in seeking justice and instead “sold out” the OJ Simpson case to tabloid media and tabloid publishers.
MARK FUHRMAN'S PERJURY PLEA
It was never my position that Mark Fuhrman carried the bloody glove from Bundy to Rockingham....just as I didn't believe that Mark Fuhrman manufactured the knife in the Joseph Britton case, to "justify" an officer involved shooting. The glove and the knife in the two separate criminal cases were planted so as to be discovered in order to FRAME A GUILTY MAN. In both cases the suspects were considered to be "dirt bags" and LAPD and LADA had no business embellishing, concealing and or planting evidence.
Mark Fuhrman did not take the fifth because he used the "N" word...we all did at some point and time in our law enforcement careers.
As a cop, I was teaching police report writing classes at the LAPD academy and I used the "N" and the "F" words many times to illustrate reality. If a suspect in a robbery said to a victim "N" Put your F...ing hands up", I sure as hell would not want my recruits to sugarcoat the situation.
Mark Fuhrman plead because he would have been exposed for seeking a fraudulent pension, planting evidence, writing a book about OJ Simpson for a publisher who had ties to National Enquirer, using Anthony Pellicano to intimidate witnesses, roughing up religious worshipers etc., etc., etc. Had Mark Fuhrman taken the stand, he would have been crucified.
"Guilty of Incompetence" is not about Mark Fuhrman. It's about racial injustice and why OJ Simpson got away with multiple murders.
MARK FUHRMAN'S "ZIPPER GATE"
It is the same old story that many refer to as a "touch of zipper gate". When you are a good looking irresistible STUD, former LAPD Detective, an accomplished writer and a "fictional" flirt, you have to be careful who you send your photos and emails to...and....what you say over the phone. Mark Fuhrman is a great communicator but because he lacks character and self discipline, he has become an easy target for "beautiful" women. Perhaps Mark should be reminded that "...The fish that avoids the bait lives longest..."
The emails and photos that I personally reviewed for authenticity....were shocking and I hope that Mark Fuhrman voluntarily gives up his STUD title for something more appealing...like family values.
OJ AND MARK FUHRMAN'S SIMILARITIES
I must admit that your knowledge of the OJ Simpson case is impressive. However, with all due respect, I don't agree with many of the "interpretations" or "conclusions" you reached.
Contrary to some of my critics, you among them, I don't hate Mark Fuhrman or OJ Simpson. They both possess characteristics that are not appealing to me. In fact, their similarities deserve a closer look. Both men think they are "STUDS", they love seeing themselves on TV, they seem to have ghostwriters author their books and it's just a matter of time before OJ joins Fuhrman in another milestone...the convicted felon column.
While I am not a saint, I am proud of my accomplishments, to wit; being a man of CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY. I have been married for 33 years, served the citizens of Los Angeles with distinction, courtesy and honor for 19 years and functioned as a damn good defense investigator for 15 years.
Unfortunately, every time I sat down to write a book for future law students and criminal justice graduates...on the art of celebrity trials...I was interrupted with yet another high profile case.
VICTIM OF STALKING AND SEXUALLY PERVERTED CALLS
“….The bitter divorce issues and perverted calls were brought to the attention of West Los Angeles Detective Division, including Detective Ron Phillips and Detective Mark Fuhrman. These two detectives, along with, Detective Brad Roberts, had plenty of experience in leading, guiding and directing sensitive VIP investigations, especially those that had celebrity status attached to the victims or the suspects. The three detectives knew from experience that high profile and, acerbic divorce cases in Los Angeles attracted unscrupulous “ambulance chasers” and high tech two-timing unsupervised private “dicks” who sell out their clients to the tabloid media….”
“….Even after Nicole’s follow up investigation was concluded and the sexual pervert had been identified by WLA detectives, the calls continued unabated. The LAPD protected suspect was replaced by career criminal Bill Wasz, who simply filled the void and began to “shadow” Nicole Brown Simpson….”
MARK FUHRMAN - A MAN WITHOUT CHARACTER
The conservative "pit bulls" at Court TV (including lawyers and prosecutors) had portrayed Mark Fuhrman as a REHABILITATED handsome STUD, a famous author, a genius, a legend in Los Angeles ...and... with such accolades he is simply acting out his fantasies. Like a Walter Mitty character, Mark Fuhrman is all over Court TV but not in person. His bidding is being done by a select group of activists who are "protecting" Mark Fuhrman, by distorting his reputation of being a ROGUE COP, an ATHEIST, a RACIST and a SEXIST.
Who except Mark Fuhrman, after having been chased out of Los Angeles and humiliated by a beautiful producer Laura Hart McKinney, would again compromise himself by posing nude or semi nude, engage in phone sex conversations and or write salacious emails while on the Internet and or promoting his books. I guess Mr. Fuhrman will claim that he was simply acting out his fantasies in preparation of another fictional book or that his email address was manipulated by some beautiful computer hacker. If a picture speaks a thousand words...then...a thousand emails will paint Mark Fuhrman as a pathatic human being.
I don't blame Caroline Fuhrman for dumping her conservative husbandwho is a hypocrite. He betrayed the Los Angeles Police Department, he betrayed his wife who stood by him when the going was tough and like DOG CHAPMAN (THE BOUNTY HUNTER) Mark Fuhrman will betray FOX NEWS with his ZIPPER GATE scandal.
Looking back on his life, Mark Fuhrman will some day realize that he had everything going for himself... except that one elusive trait... called CHARACTER.
