Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

Famed detective Mark Fuhrman is calling for a grand jury probe of the Terri Schiavo case, saying there's no other way to get to the bottom of the unexplained 1990 collapse of the then-26-year-old woman.

"I want a grand jury investigation," he told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity on Tuesday, adding that Schiavo's parents also favor the move.

Fuhrman, whose book "Silent Witness," hit bookstores this week, said that if Florida prosecutors decline to convene a grand jury probe, the Justice Department should step in.

He asked, "Were Terri's civil rights violated? When I looked at this case, she never got the due process of a death row inmate."

A similar investigative book by Fuhrman, "Murder in Greenwich," is credited with forcing Connecticut prosecutors to reexamine Martha Moxley's 1975 murder, resulting in the conviction of Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel.

In the Terri Schiavo case, Fuhrman said most of the questions revolve around her husband, Michael and the conflicting stories he's told over the years.

"Michael Schiavo can't seem to remember anything consistently," he told Hannity, citing discrepancies in his account of his reaction to Michael's wife's collapse and the time he called paramedics.

"We have to have Michael Schiavo sit in front of a grand jury," the famed detective urged, noting that Schiavo has refused over the years to be questioned under oath in a deposition. "[A grand jury] is the only way to investigate this case."

Asked if he'd ever seen a case with so many unanswered questions, Fuhrman told Hannity: "Yeah, it's called Martha Moxley."

Sorry, riskaverse. Didn't mean to upset you.

What are the topics that need to be avoided in the "Other Topics" board to avoid the "t" word? Since you are clear on this, why not post a list?

Nope, "Other Topics" should be just that. If there is a subject I happen to disagree with, I still see no reason why you shouldn't post it, as long as it avoids commercial content.

"Not only is it extremely cruel to persecute in this brief life those who do not think the way we do, but I do not know if it might be too presumptuous to declare their eternal damnation."

riskaverse was not saying he could not post this. But he is correct, this is a great definition of a Troll.

I have nothing against Trolls posting. - Heck, I even do it myself!

I will defend to the end Art's right to post ridiculous subjects.

Didn't say it needed to be avoided, or didn't belong here or that I'm clear on a list of topics.
Didn't upset me either.

Said it looked like a troll to me. *This would be the right place for it. * *

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

Furhman is a "famed detective"? Sorry, I lived in L.A. when he single handedly got O.J. Simpson out of murder convictions. Why do cable news channels take total screwups and turn them into celebrities (Ollie North, G. Gordon Liddy, Geraldo Rivera, now Mark Furhman). Furhman is on tape dropping the N-bomb repeatedly, botched evidence handling, among other things, buyer beware on that source.

Laurence, I watched that trial too- the only problem I remember with Fuhrman was his taped use of the "n" word in front of a jury that was going to free OJ despite a mountain of evidence, to teach the LAPD a lesson.

What evidence did he botch?

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

I forget the exact term used, but he failed to properly document the transfer of evidence from the crime scene to the lab. O.J. was guilty as sin, and the jury was stacked in his favor, but my uncle is in L.A. law enforcement as was steamed as hell he gave them such an easy out on the evidence. Cochrian (may he burn in hell-just kidding....sort of) was remembered for "if the glove doesn't fit, you must aquit" but he also pounded on the evidence lab saying, "garbage in, garbage out" so the fact that Furhman left the door open to evidence tampering between the crime scene and the lab left an opening for reasonable doubt.

I know you have strong feelings on the Terri Shaivo case, it's all good there, but Furhman was an jerk, and even his fellow officers knew it.

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

I'll take your word for it. I remember a ton of screw ups with Fong, Van Atter, and others... but not Fuhrman. I could be wrong.

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

Don't get me wrong, I empathize with law enforcement and I go crazy when a slick, overpaid defense lawyer gets a murderer off on a technicality (see my well wishes above) but his name was mud after that trial in L.A., and yet now he is a pheonix from the ashes.

The thing in common between these two cases (O.J. and Terri) is that these are perfect examples of how we still have a "justice for some" system in the U.S.

If O.J. worked at Taco Bell, he'd be touched up with a needle on death row by now, and if there wasn't political hay to be made from Terri Shaivo's case, I wouldn't even know her name.

True (although I suspect we disagree on the political hay being made).

And yet... not at all mutually exclusive with the possibility that Michael Schiavo got away with murder or manslaughter... so far.

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

What I want to know is how do we(the taxpayer) get royalities, trademark protection and cut of the book, movie revenue - on the evidence, transcripts, courtroom tv, etc.,etc. - to get some of our tax money back that we spend on all this junk. Both civil and criminal.

Deep Throat may be unmasked - but it would be nice if someone picked up the gauntlet and "followed the money."

As a taxpayer - it would be nice to see my cut.

First Mark Fuhrman as a great source of reliable information, who's next...Tom Cruise?

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

All Fuhrman is doing is pointing out inconsistencies and raising questions that have never been asked of Michael Sciavo. He's not a "source" of information. The questions I've heard (haven't read the book) are fascinating.

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

Didnt see anything that wasnt asked and answered. Some people just like to keep asking in case the answer changes.

Thats the definition of insanity...doing the same things over and over again and looking for a different result.

But I'm sure you have 'sources' that are telling you that there are new and unasked questions that everyone up to the POTUS forgot to look into when they turned this rock over so many times that its worn out.

So who is it? A chinese spy?

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

Thorough questions relating to the night of the "accident" were never asked or answered. Schiavo's story is inconsistent. He has never accounted for multiple inconsistencies. As usual, you are uninformed.

Re: Mark Fuhrman: Grand Jury Should Probe Terri Schiavo Case

You're right art, the police didnt do their jobs. Just whiffed on it. All questions HAVE been asked and answered. There are just a few nutcases that wont let it go.

Perhaps i'm uninformed, but i'm not a liar and I dont make up sources. I also fulfill my end of a bargain when I make it. Oops, three strikes...you're out!

Alright, numbnuts. I'll start a thread to show the negative impact of illegal aliens on our health care, criminal justice and education systems. You are quite the retard!
