I somehow don’t feel bad at all that I pretty much laughed throughout this entire 911 call. I have never seen a killer so cooperative with the Police and the Police respecting him for it. The whole conversion pretty much goes down like a business interview. Clear, honest, descriptive and factual. This kid somehow gives me a feeling of being trust worthy. You can even hear the operator symphatizing with the kid. Now, doesn’t matter how insane of a thing he did, which obviously was 360 degrees fucked up, it goes to show, that delivery of something, how you are about it, can change everybody’s perception about the situation. At times it may even surpass fact. By the end of this phone call, you’d think the kid was trapped in an emergency situation and he was being saved from the horrifying truth of a murder scene like it was the mother and the sisters fault that they died and terrified the kid. This is golden.
It’s either all of the above or this kid is playing a great game. Like in the movie Primal Fear, Edward Norton’s breakout role as the demented little fuck who tricks everyone including his lawyer into believing he has multiple personality disorder. You should really see that movie if you haven’t, it’s amazing. He gets away with all that’s he’s done simply because of well, -his delivery.
Politics immediately come to mind. Why else as humanity would we choose to hear what is to be considered popular truth, from politicians? No one wants to hear the bland unemotional delivery of a scientist. You have to dress everything up for people. In the end we are all like little children in the way we respond to things that are outside of our control. We want to babied. It is really a hard pick for me. It’s either completely emotional human flaw or heartless, soulless robotic fact. Both of them seem equally awful and remind us our eternal struggle; The search for perfection which we’ll never have.
Why not what we say but how we say it?
Its because we dont know what truth is ultimate and we base all that we think is good or bad on the reaction and the accepted morals of others. That is why people don’t react to the fact but how others act. Deep down inside none of us are bound by an eternal morality, only the accepted conventions of the time. place and how things came to be.
