    "That explains it perfectly actually. So it is more a buffer from the possible flak that could occur should you not say anything or at least consider it to the general public. Well then considering what could happen if a rumor like that spread to the mass public and the police said nothing. They'd probably call it a cover-up or worse."

    He understood where the Police were coming from now more intuitively now. Damage was bound to be done so why not minimize the total punishment that would occur, simple. Actually, it was so simple he kinda lamented he hadn't thought of it that way. Granted he had that Prisoners dilemma experiment now and could probably use that against Thea somehow.

    " Have you ever been given a few of these types of cases sir? Where it was up in the air like this. Or do you find your cases are more clear....well as clear as can be."

    His dream didn't really send him down the investigative path, but an officer could never go wrong in being deductive and quick-witted.

    A lot of being a cop was managing expectations and news. Something with bad spin from the press could end up going very badly for the department, and all it took was one cop being an asshole to make the whole department look bad.

    "Sometimes," Angelo said. "To an extent, anyway. I've been first responder on a lot of scenes, but for more serious cases the detectives usually take over. I'm not cut out for digging through a crime scene with a comb to figure out if there's any hairs leftover. Generally I'll get enough of an idea to maybe point them in the direction, but I'd rather leave the confusing ones to people who want to deal with that stuff."

    Angelo paused, raising his eyebrows. "You considering detective?"

    Vatar laughed a bit at the question. "Me? No, as much as I like watching Law and Order and other mystery television I don't think that life is cut out for me. There are way better people equipped for that kind of job. My goal is and will hopefully remain to join the MCPD SWAT team."

    While his initial reasons for such a long path was steeped in vanity and self-interest he had truly come to love this island. Apart from the strangely over the top people he could see the strange beauty this place offered and the second chances it gave a lot of people he would consider changing. The east he could do is strive to keep that semblance of peace so people aren't afraid to come.

    "That actually makes me wonder sir. What was your reason for joining the police? People still whisper about your past, and one can only wonder what pulled you to this side of the law?"

    Angelo had wondered if Vatar knew about him. All his coworkers certainly did, but not everyone else. They'd be told if they asked, but it was the kind of thing that people tended not to ask. People thought he might be sensitive about it, or maybe nervous. Angelo wasn't, but most people were.

    "It'd be kind of inaccurate to say I was pulled over at all," Angelo said, his demeanor calm and relaxed as he settled back in his chair. "I was born as part of the mafia. I never chose that life, and I didn't have any strong connection to it outside the Family. By the time Manta Carlos found out about me, my use with them was pretty much over. I'd have ended up in jail if I stayed much longer, and the Don - well, he sent me here rather than that. Gave me a chance at a good life. When I got here, the idea of trying to find a new family didn't cross my mind. It wouldn't be the same, and the police knew who I was, and neither of those added up nicely. I looked at my skill set, thought about things, and... well, here I am. I'd love to say there was a dramatic moment with a cop who ended up as my mentor, but no such luck."

    He grinned at that, painfully self aware.
