Pain is punishment. Persuasion. It's another tool in a person's arsenal to achieve what they want. It has different variations and intensities but pain is something everyone feels in some capacity. It can be intentional or it can be an accident but it will always change both the person giving and the person receiving. It's universal.

In essence, the police where I come from are supposed help prevent that kind of pain. More realistically, we react to others' pain. Depending on the amount of resources we have and bodies with badges available, we're either successful or not. When we're found to be less than required, that's pain. And really when you think about it, jailing the man who kidnapped someone's 2-year-old daughter, that doesn't make it hurt any less.

You can take the pain and whine about it or you can use it and hit back. Whether it's delivered physically with a fist, emotionally with harm to someone you care about or a little of both, in betrayal and disloyalty to what you vowed, there's always a way to fight back. Once you find the source of the pain, nothing can stop you from returning it. In our case, it's in the system of the courts and prison. Sometimes, admittedly, it isn't satisfying enough. Naturally, you want to give back exactly what you got. Sometimes you want to say screw the rules and let them feel what you felt.

But first and foremost I'm a cop. So whatever pain is in store, I'm only gonna hit back within the rules set down that I vowed to follow as a cop. No matter what, everyone walks away changed for the worse, but at some point you realize that giving back equal doesn't make it any better either. Anyone capable of causing pain is capable of feeling it. What makes a person different is how they choose to use that knowledge.


Private to Ray Carling
Carling, we need to have a talk. Come to my office ASAP. And no, this isn't about the flamethrowers.


Police Filter, a few hours later | Unhackable, not viewable by Ray or Ken for approx. a week
Ray Carling has been suspended pending an investigation into the accusations he's incurred that he was involved in the mess with people disappearing and turning up dead and in some cases, previously eaten. His clearances have been revoked after a victim came forward pointing the finger.

I want this kept quiet for now. I want everyone with any experience in investigation taking care of this. I want teams out to the original sites these crimes took place on. I want teams in the apartments. We need to get to the bottom of this yesterday. Evidence, alibis; a smoking fucking gun, for God's sake.


[ooc: This should have gone up on Tuesday, sorry! If I'm missing anything else, please let me know. I've been all backwards this week. Note the Police message is a few hours after Beckett talks with Ray and Tsurugi, so if you've a character close to either of them that would have heard, feel free to assume they already knew. Whoever wants to leak the info along with Chris, feel free! :)

eta: Nix the Tsurugi meeting, apparently things are being shifted around! Also, notifs are fucked again so yeah.]
