I'm not exactly sure what's going on here because I'm too lazy to read the short story, but I've got a secret for law enforcement which will probably have me disbarred by noon tomorrow: Instead of avoiding the cameras and shuffling someone away from the cameras, do what that cop did: Take that person in front of the reporters and let them talk. It's the greatest evidence you'll ever have.
There's an old saying: You'll never find anyone deaf, dumb, and blind in prison.
Side note: Haven't had ice cream out of an ice cream maker since I was a kid. Do they still make "rock salt"?
