When Police Investigate...

We've all watched interrogations on CSI and NCIS. Check THIS one out, interrogation of one of the Bailey Murder suspects, from the Albany Times Union:
On Sept. 11, Callicutt received a visit from Albany police in state prison, where he is serving 5 years for attempted gun possession. He initially claimed to be in New Jersey when Bailey was killed. And months earlier, Callicutt had passed a lie detector test about the case. But he opened up to police after they told him he had failed the test and that Caldwell and Modest were cooperating with their investigation, neither of which was true.
I once knew a fellow who insisted that your best strategy during interrogation is DENY DENY DENY and never let 'em see ya sweat. Stick to your story! This is also how police extract FALSE CONFESSIONS: they kick your legs out from under you by telling you how you've been found out - or sold out by friends and family!

There but for fortune...

I you think interrogators are ruthless and have no scruples, you haven't met BANKS! Yes, those wonderful institutions that will charge you $30 when your checking account is 2 cents short!!! Another horrible story from the TU!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
