O.J. Simpson's iconic 1995 trial and acquittal on charges of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, was one of the most unforgettable stories of the decade.
One of the key players in this real-life soap opera was Los Angeles Police Department detective Mark Fuhrman. Under oath, Mark denied ever having used the N-word, but tapes revealed that he was lying. The defense seized on this lie as part of their strategy to create enough doubt in minds of jurors about the evidence to lead to a not guilty verdict.
