Putting myself in a position whereI know people might get hurt, I would say I will treat it certain respect. I will try to keep myself calm and try to talk with this person peacefully. I do not believe violence is the answer because the person who we think is the bomber might be innocent or have some kind of mental illness that makes him enjoy to be tortured or something else. In conclusion, torture is not the answer, willprobably not give me an answer, and I might be torturing the wrong person.
How I can get the information I need? Well I need to analyze this person, try to find some lie detector, some specialist like a psychiatric doctor that is a specialist dealing with people like this. I would try to formulate a set of questions that might get me answer, something similar to Socrates’ technique. While theinterrogatory goes, people must be keep trying to find the bomb.
But I really doubt there is no bomb, if there’s a bomb, then why they are letting others to know there is a bomb? To be prepared to die or have enough time to find the bomb? I know we hear about these threats all the time, but when it happens, no one really advises will happen right? And if they do is because they want to get caught andget some attention, feel the attention from others and then think they are brave for the things they are doing or just proud. Who really knows what is going on inside of the mind of the criminal right?
I believe the guy I have in my hands is responsible for the bomb, how I can get the information I need without using violence? I believe talking in a demanding tone, making this person feelcompletely responsible for this action might help me a bit. Then asking questions like: who you work for? Why you’re doing this? Depending on the answers might get me somewhere. The person knows he is responsible for other’s people lives, that he’s putting this people in danger.
The usage of a lie detector might help in this situation because every time I ask where is the bomb and if the person sayshe does not know, the lie detector will say otherwise or may be will say the person is saying the truth and well this way the person will be free to go and we need to keep searching who is responsible for this problem.
So let’s keep thinking we got the right guy. How I can find out where is the bomb? I must keep myself calm; otherwise I will be freaking out and start yelling and screaming ormay be hurt the person to tell me where the bomb, will is it take me somewhere? I don’t think so, a person like this must be used to violence, usually people who have been hurt in the past, they don’t care much if they get hurt in the moment, they might even enjoy the torture because for them is a way of love and understanding.
A few minutes later time is running and I still don’t have an answerof where is the bomb. I will keep asking and keep reminding myself to be calm to keep thinking other ways and have a crew searching for it. How come this person is not telling me where the bomb is? How come this person does not care for others? Time is running and there is not answer.
I keep telling myself and people around me torture or violence is not the answer. But I need to find wherethe bomb is. I keep talking to the guy who does not want to tell us where the bomb is and how we can save the people. Time keeps running and I’m 60 minutes away to find out where is the bomb, I probably have less time because I need to know then send people to disconnect the bomb so I’m counting with 40 minutes or less to find out. The man is in denial, I have the pressure of other people around...
