This is Chief Kate Beckett, making a quick note as a courtesy. You may not recognize me when I come into the office this morning. I'm, uh. Male. Castle, I took the liberty of raiding your wardrobe.

Go ahead, get the laughter out now. [And Kate flips to video, linefacing and looking fairly unamused. And manly!]

police filter, voice;
It's been over a week. What does everyone have so far, because this needs to be cleaned up yesterday.


[ooc: Kate Beckett is manly! Responses from [livejournal.com profile] nicholasheat. As far as the police business, I figure we're moving along through the investigation stage, so along with what anyone comments here, we'd likely be to the point where they submit that they've no evidence supporting the accusations and might even possibly have alibis and other evidence refuting the accusations? Sorry I've been a little behind and chaotic with the open threads on this plot, I'm not really absolutely sure where we're supposed to be at this point, so correct me if I'm mistaken! :) Alsoooo bendytime to the morning if that's okay?]

Public, text
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.

Police Filter, a few hours later )


[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.]
