And it works. Most Americans still give the system their loyalty, whether out of love or fear. It doesn’t matter that most of the criminals or turrists are created by the system itself. Indeed, if crime or turrism dropped, they would need to create more of it for job security.
Using the family against an suspect is a common technique. They’ve got a canned routine they use. The substance of it is……:
“Well by golly, we just want a peaceful resolution to this thing just like you. We’re concerned about his safety.”
“We’re reasonable people, but others aren’t. There’s bounty hunters and curiosity seekers out there, real cowboy types. They might take him in dead or alive. No one wants that. We need YOUR help to bring him in safely.”
They used it on Kaczynski. The FBI put the hype on his brother and family. If you don’t help us, he might get hurt and nobody wants that….
You may be a WN and know all the system’s tricks. But your family doesn’t. They may be the greatest weapon used against you. Remember that.
