 Detective talks killing, KFC 

Mark Fuhrman, a former Los Angeles Police Department detective convicted of perjury after denying that he'd ever used racial slurs, surprised nobody by claiming the following on a broadcast of Hannity & Colmes in November 2006. The types of people he dealt with for 20 years, he said, will "kill somebody and go have some chicken at KFC. You will catch them eating chicken and drinking a beer after they just murdered three people." Colmes later pointed out the racial overtones of Fuhrman's statements before characteristically backing down—probably as required by contractual terms with Fox.
