(Some Guy)   After a triple homicide, Regina police cut out the middleman and send residents blunt questionnaires asking "Were you involved?" and "If you were involved how would you have done it?"   (theprovince.com) divider line 132

Yes, yes you do. Though personally I'd just throw it away.

Where can I fill one of these out? I'd like to. It'd be a hoot. I wouldn't fill one out if I lived there, but since I'm a thousand miles away, why not?

Yeah, I'll tell you how I'd have done it. First I would need 600 pounds of Pop-Rocks, a funnel, a box of crayons, three chicken feet, a half-dozen...

Actually, you're both right. As a native of Regina, it depends on how fast you say the word.
If you're talking to strangers, typically you say it like The-Brain and say it clearly, just so people don't think you're living in some girl's cooter.

Every person who received the questionnaire should return it with a written note invoking their Miranda Rights and asked for a Puplic defender. Let's see the budget cover all that overtime for the Defender's office.

"If you were going to conduct the investigation, how would you do it?"

Well, I'd put up fliers in the community with a location, date and time on it where the murderer could pickup the Triple Murder Grand Prize of a free boat. Then whoever showed up, I'd arrest that guy.
 
2010-08-13 02:04:19 PM  
To be fair, Regina police actually have to investigate crimes. At least in Saskatoon, the authorities there can peg any criminal act on "random vagrant".
 
2010-08-13 02:05:10 PM  
Sounds crazy, but there are some murder profiles that would indicate this kind of thing might actually work. The killer might actually want to admit, or be unable to resist this. You never know.
 
2010-08-13 02:08:58 PM  
No, I didn't do it. I heard your mother walked by and the essense of skank coming off her did it.

STFU and GBTW Jayden, Brayden, or whatever dicktastic American neologism your parents thought up.

You've got to be kidding me. If they showed up at my door wanting to know why I didnt return the questionnaire, I would say 2 things:

1) Didnt do it and dont know who did
2) Anything else? (hand them my lawyers' business card)

I would follow this up by saying that if you're pretty sure you don't look guilty and have a good alibi, there's no reason not to talk to the cops, but if there's the slightest chance they might think you're the perp, do not talk to them without a good lawyer present.

In Regina that might actually work. About 15 years back a native fellow had his family held hostage in his home. So the police put a single can of beer on the sidewalk and promised not to arrest him when he came out to get it. When he came out to get it, they arrested him. The First Nations people were pretty POd over the thing. Apparently baiting potential murderers in such a fashion is racist.

What is it about not having money that makes people think they can do whatever they want to you?

"If you were involved how would you have done it?"

In the drawing room, with a candlestick.

On the serious side, though, this might actually be helpful. No one individual answer is going to be correct, but averaged out, they might build up a pretty good picture of what happened.

Kind of like how they placed bets on where the wreck of the USS Scorpion was, and it turned out to be only a couple hundred yards away from the average.

So, you want the killer to go free?
What's up with that? Are you a killer? Not being a wise-ass, I sincerely want to understand what you're getting at here.

No shiat, for real? That is just about the stupidest thing I've ever heard, and I've been around a while (on FARK and on the planet.)
