Tucker Carlson interviewed former LAPD Detective Mark Fuhrman and forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden Thursday, about whether or not O.J. Simpson deserved to be paroled, calling him “a double murderer” who “beat his wife.”
Simpson appeared before a Nevada parole board, which unanimously granted his early release Thursday afternoon. He was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008 and had served nine years of his sentence to date. Simpson supporters felt the prison term was overly harsh, claiming it was payback for his double murder acquittal during the “trial of the century.” Simpson was accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in cold blood and was eventually found liable in civil court.
Tucker asked Baden, a defense witness in the murder trial, how it felt to have been party to helping set a murderer free.
“Let’s exit the legal world and enter the real world. I think most people would agree this guy committed a double murder and beat his wife and is kind of a horrible person and you helped get him off. So my question is how do you feel about that?” Tucker asked.
“I think that the 12 jurors didn’t feel that the prosecution presented a case,” said Baden. He then called Simpson a “model prisoner” who deserved to be set free.
Tucker asked Fuhrman if he was bitter about being painted as the villain during that trial, while Simpson “got away with murder.”
“There is no such thing as fair. The world’s not fair. You march on with the facts that you have before you. The facts are I’m not a murderer. So there is nothing you can tell me that makes me an equal to just how evil O.J. Simpson is,” Furhman said.
