Is she wrong?
Saying you take zero pleasure in something doesn't mean you didn't do it, Officer...
If tears couldn't be faked, it would be much harder to film scenes with crying people. :)
That's something dangerous to confess from the police officer, considering the latest rule released.
Under false pretenses... Yeah, the officer is taking a big risk. But in theory, he only told Shalhia. Maybe he trusts her that much - I suspect he might be the guy with a bounty on his head.
To be fair, she didn't ask if he did it or not, he's merely attempting to reassure her that his reasons for participating are not as damning as they would superficially imply.
Also, can we take a moment to imagine what it must be like to be a cop in Lorg?
