"I avoid comments that could be perceived as influencing the courts, sorry."

"Are the courts going to continue to evaluate the case even though the accused died in custody?"

Permalink

"There aren't really provisions for that but I assume they'll pick it up when he gets back."

The journalist pokes a bit more, then leaves.

A secretary says, "Did he do it, though?"

Permalink

"Off the record? Yes, I'm sure he did. I'd execute him more than once if we had provision for that. Idiot."

"...why would your brother break into some guy's apartment and kill him this close to in front of his wife?"

Permalink

"The guy raped Macalaurë's girlfriend - as did seven other people, some cops - and the investigators knew 'em and mysteriously lost all the evidence."

Permalink

"Why?"

Permalink

"- to which part of that? He's not likely to come back, so I don't expect it'll go to trial."

Permalink

"No, I mean, why would somebody pick on an Elf's girlfriend, seems dumb, you can't know all the possible investigators they could assign."

Permalink

"Or whether the Elf will be inspired to retaliatory necksnapping - what he was thinking - the girl's red. He was meticulous about showering, I did have someone check."

Permalink

"Oh." Thoughtful pause. "Still."

Permalink

"It was perhaps not the best-considered crime. I'm not sorry he's dead, but Macalaurë absolutely shouldn't have and I haven't the slightest impulse to cover for him. Not that he asked me to."

Permalink

"How in the world do you find seven other people who want to all go in together on - never mind, I'll drop it."

Permalink

"On a kink site for that."

Permalink

The secretary makes a face. "Man. The internet."

Permalink

"Soon all the reds'll be gone and the cops will probably find the motivation to prosecute all the rapes they get handed - I suppose in a way it says good things about the system that they didn't have any hesitations about arresting the head of domestic policy -"

Permalink

"I mean, he walked into a guy's apartment and snapped his neck. Knowing why he's doing it wouldn't exactly make most people more sympathetic."

Permalink

"I mean that no one seems to have worried that the case wasn't worth pursuing because the culprit was important."

Permalink

"Yeah, true."

Permalink

"Idiot," Maitimo grumbles again, and then gets back to work.
