Safechuck’s Declaration in the LIE CYCLE and POKER GAME around Michael Jackson
The recent ‘supplementary declaration’ of James Safechuck reminds me of the continuous circulation of water in nature. Same as water constantly changes its form in the environment, lies about Jackson constantly change their form and morph into something different – once they evaporate into steam in one place they gather into clouds and fall as rain in another place thus turning fictional stories about Michael into a constant cycle of lies.
What I mean is that as soon as irrefutable proof is found that Wade Robson lied about his so-called “molestation” in early 1990 and his lie can no longer be corrected as it is actually fixed in writing in his amended complaint, the cloud decides to move to James Safechuck’s territory and rain there in the form of his ‘supplementary declaration’.
Robson’s supporters don’t bother to argue or explain the inconsistencies of his story – they simply drop a new bomb elsewhere to distract public attention while they themselves hurriedly fill in holes in Robson’s flimsy story and will most probably come with still another amended version of his saga.
Not that these articles were seen by that many people. What’s really important is that they were seen by Michael’s haters, and these guys absolutely cannot afford Robson’s lies debunked by anyone at all.
Unfortunately Robson’s lies were stated in writing which was an added inconvenience for their authors, so while they now think how to fine tune the complaint and free it from its fundamental inconsistencies, urgent help was summoned from Safechuck (who is incidentally represented by the same lawyers as Robson).
In short the rules of the game around Jackson are simple – the more lies you refute, the more ‘supplementary’ stories they tell you. And the problem here is that the truth is only one and often boring (nothing bad happened) while lies are numerous and exciting (as human fantasy is boundless). Lies constantly morph into something different and change the rules right in the process of the game.
This modus operandi is deplorable of course but should not be of too much concern for Michael’s defenders – the knowledge of what liars do is already solving half the problem, and this is what this post will be all about.
THE OLD PATTERN
The morph-and-distraction pattern described above was first successfully used by Jordan Chandler’s civil lawyer Larry Feldman who resorted to exactly the same trick on December 28, 1993.
I mean the so-called Jordan Chandler’s ‘declaration’ which was suddenly made four months after his ‘abuse’ story was disclosed during filing a civil case in September 1993 after which the story was told and retold in much detail, especially in connection with Jordan’s statement to the police where he finally (and wrongly) described Michael Jackson’s genitalia.
This of his statements was used as a reason for subjecting Michael Jackson to an utterly humiliating strip search and examining his genitalia and buttocks. The strip search came on December 21, 1993 and brought the police nowhere as the photos proved that Jordan Chandler’s description of MJ’s private parts was all wrong.
The next day, on December 22 Michael Jackson went on satellite TV fighting back tears and explaining that he had to endure this horrible humiliation in order to establish his complete innocence.
The police were so stunned by the mismatch between what they expected and actually saw that they went dead silent for several weeks, after which the information about the mismatch was finally leaked to the press and this sensational news was published in a tiny piece in “USA Today” and went totally unnoticed by everyone.
After the strip search the Chandler camp was in a panic. It reached its peak when their civil lawyer Larry Feldman demanded that the 1) photos made during the strip-search should be shown to the accuser and 2) Jackson should subject himself to a second strip-search, or …. the accuser’s lawyer would motion for the photos to be barred from the civil trial.
They were so panicky about their case that their lawyer wanted to bar the crucial evidence of Michael’s innocence!
In short the whole scam was on the verge of collapsing, however our good old Larry Feldman found a way out – a week after the strip-search he prepared a ‘declaration’ by Jordan Chandler which was a clipped version of the boy’s earlier story. The big difference of that paper was that this time it carefully avoided all suggestion that Jordan could have ever possibly see MJ naked. This time all mention of ‘mutual masturbation’ was totally dropped from the narration while prior to that Jordan freely talked about it in his October 1993 interview with a psychiatrist, Dr. Richard Gardner.
The other difference of the paper was that it was filed in court together with depositions of a driver, maid and other characters. Through a clever wording this pile of documents created an illusion that Jordan Chandler’s declaration was a deposition too, while the truth of the matter was that Jordan was never deposed, neither before nor after the strip-search.
This way the seemingly unnecessary paper which simply repeated the allegations (with crucial omissions though) served two purposes – the renewed hysteria around it was meant to obscure the fact that MJ’s strip search proved Jordan to be a liar, and the other goal was to create an illusion that Jordan was deposed, while he absolutely wasn’t.
Let me remind you that Michael as a defendant in a civil case had an unlimited right to have Jordan deposed and grilled by his lawyers in his, Michael’s presence, but he evidently felt sorry for him and refrained from it in order to save the boy from the humiliation of a harsh scrutiny and public admission of his lies. He thought it was his father’s doing, not Jordan’s.
Producing a new and seemingly unnecessary declaration from Chandler at a moment when the accuser’s situation was close to hopeless proved itself to be an effective tool of negative publicity triggering a new wave of media hysteria. The pattern used for the job was simple as a piece of cake – as soon as the evidence found in the discovery process turned out to be extremely damaging for the accuser’s story, all that needed to be done was change the initial story and pretend that it had always been that way.
So when Michael Jackson proved by his naked ordeal that Jordan’s story was a lie, the problem was dealt with through a new Jordan’s declaration that simply did not mention the situation in which he could see him naked.
So what if he previously said that Michael was circumcised and he turned out to be not? The new declaration gave a long and horrid description of the “abuse” but carefully avoided any mention of the circumcision blunder, and this made his complaint only better and sparkle as new!
This proven pattern of lies was once again used ten years later, in 2003 when the text of Jordan’s declaration was leaked by some well-wishers on the very day when Bashir’s so-called documentary aired on TV. By then the public had completely forgotten Jordan’s original story and no soul on earth could remember that this paper was made just as a smokescreen to cover up for the fundamental inconsistencies in his allegations.
Even in 1993 the public hardly knew that there was no proof for what Jordan said, not to mention ten years later when his “declaration” came on the suspecting public as a bolt of lighting from a clear blue sky. All the people did at that time was look in horror at what the boy said.
SAFECHUCK AND HIS TROLL TEAM
And now all of us are similarly looking at what Safechuck says.
By pressing on us his ‘supplementary’ story they force us to discuss his revelations in full seriousness, while the sole purpose of the document is to distract attention from Robson, come to his rescue and bolster his case when it already began to fall apart due to its grave discrepancies and contradictions.
The pattern of a lie cycle suggests that when the effect of earlier lies is beginning to wear off new lies should be immediately thrown in – in order to keep people in a constant state of shock and amazement and “gain momentum” so to say.
Throwing in lies after lies and building the suspension is actually a classic method of any mass brainwashing technique which is being professionally used now by the team of supporters of Robson and Safechuck.
How do we know that Safechuck’s ‘supplementary declaration’ was made mostly for the sake of publicity and its main idea is to bias the public and exert maximal emotional pressure on everyone including the judge?
We know it from the fact that the poor Safechuck wreck who makes himself out (in his declaration) as an extremely publicity-shy guy leaked the paper to two anti-Michael sources just for the sake of publicity he supposedly hates so much.
The declaration did not appear on the LA Superior Court official page of filed documents, and this means that it was sealed by the court, however the fate of being unknown is not what this document was meant for. To derive maximal publicity from these ‘supplemental’ revelations the paper was leaked on a private basis to a team of anti-Michael forces – an act which alone proves that Safechuck and Robson and the group of their supporters/MJ haters are working in close collaboration with each other.
Please check up the list of filed documents with the LA Superior Court and see for yourself that the declaration of March 18, 2015 is simply not there. No media source and no blog, all the more so, could buy it from court as it was not even offered for purchase there. So the only source it could come from was Safechuck himself or his lawyers.
And here are the two anti-Michael sources whom Safechuck trusted with publishing his sealed declaration.
The fact that these papers come with the corresponding logos on them tells us that the document was provided to both of them in its original form and that it isn’t a mere reprint of the document by one source from the other:
The above proves that the alleged “victims” and the anti-Michael sources are highly likely to be in collusion with each other. And since such collaboration is rarely a one-way street I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out that the cooperation is working the other way too and that these sources are actually advising the alleged “victims” on how to develop their story and build up their strategy to further character assassinate Michael Jackson and rob his Estate of all the money it has.
These people are actually the same guys who follow each word of Michael’s defenders and who immediately change their strategy as soon as the new circumstances exonerating Michael are uncovered. One of them is a blog of dedicated MJ haters who has been ignoring all proof of his innocence for as long as it existed, and the second is a gossip media outlet which switched to some animal hatred for Michael Jackson when the Australian Dylan Howard became its editorial director.
Now Radaronline is taking their scandal mongering to a totally new level as it was recently joined by no other than Alan Duke himself.
Could any of us ever believe that a human transformation like that is ever possible? And that a respected journalist like Alan Duke will now be writing Jacko stories for RadaroOnline?
In fact the morphing of Alan Duke into someone different shattered me even more than all these supplementary revelations from James Safechuck – news like this can leave one totally devastated and devoid of all hope in humanity:
CNN Vet Alan Duke Jumps to Radar Online
By Richard Horgan on Oct. 21, 2014 – 2:45 PM
For the past five and a half years, for all but one month, Alan Duke’s byline has been the number one desktop-views attraction at CNN Digital. During that one month in question, Duke went on vacation for three weeks.
<> Although Duke was spared in the latest round of CNN layoffs, the journalist – who had been with CNN since 1989 – decided it was time to leave. As of this week, he is the Los Angeles-based national correspondent for revamping AMI website Radar Online.
“Last month, there was an event that really told me this was the time to leave,” Duke tells Fishbowl NY via telephone.
“We had an internal “huddle” [meeting] for CNN Digital, which was both a pep talk and an update on business affairs. In the executives’ statements and voices, I just picked up panic and chaos.”
Other issues for Duke included the manner in which CNN Digital senior vice president and GM Kenny Estenson was dismissed (via telephone while on vacation in Maui with his family) and a mission statement that CNN Digital needed to “better compete” with BuzzFeed and The Huffington Post.
“I have nothing against BuzzFeed,” Duke notes. “They do a lot of things well. It’s just that the kind of depth and context I try to bring to entertainment news stories is something different. The idea that we were going to go after trending topics the way BuzzFeed and The Huffington Post do was my signal to call Dylan [Howard] back [at Radar Online] and say, ‘Let’s talk.’”
Duke, a multi-platform journalist who prides himself on strong item sourcing, checked in with close friend and one-time CNN confidant Tom Johnson before making the move to Radar. He will continue to roam Los Angeles, from Starbucks to the court houses, to blanket his beat. “Have laptop, will travel” he notes enthusiastically.
We remember Alan Duke for his honest and largely unbiased reporting of the AEG trial, but evidently honesty doesn’t pay…
By the way, speaking about money one of the commentators on Safechuck’s declaration asked an extremely pertinent question – while Robson is known to have sold his condo and at least has/had around a million from that sale, who can be paying the costly legal fees for a modest computer programmer like Safechuck?
“I do not believe Robson/Safechuck’s legal team to be contingency-based. There are technically two separate ventures here, so the total legal fees may be very similar in comparison to the Estate’s legal fees. Regardless, I cannot see this being less than six figures for both separately. I cannot imagine Robson AND Safechuck being able to maintain the costly fees for this expensive, doomed venture which leads me to believe the legal team is being funded by others.”
The question is extremely interesting and reasonable too, especially when you look at the huge amount of papers generated by the Robson/Safechuck team under the two lawsuits each of them filed.
Who is indeed paying for all this?
THE SEA OF DOCUMENTS
Like I said, the documents related to Robson’s and Safechuck’s cases are listed on the LA Superior Court official page with the exclusion of confidential and sealed documents.
Sealed documents are also sometimes disclosed to the public but in a redacted form – like Robson’s second amended complaint, for example.
Let us also note that the recent ‘supplemental’ declaration of Safechuck happily reported by two anti-MJ sources, is not redacted and comes in its full form which once again proves that it was obtained in an illegal way, by bypassing the court.
There is a huge number of petitions, motions, opposition to motions and etcetera related to the alleged “victims” cases on the LA Superior Court page, but even this list is far from complete as sealed documents are not included there and are not even seen on the page.
To guide us through the torrent of documents related to Robson here is some help from the Daily Michael site dated March 12, 2015:
“As you might know Robson has two cases against MJ Estate, one of them is a creditor’s claim filed at probate court and second one is a civil case. Below is brief information about both cases.
Probate case: Robson is asking to be allowed to file a late creditor claim (9103 motion). Estate opposed to it. Estate says if late filing of creditor claim is granted, they would likely deny the creditor’s claim and Robson said if that’s the case he would add Executors as Doe 4 and Doe 5 in his civil case.
Civil case: Civil case has been initially brought against Doe defendants. In his second amended complaint Robson named Doe 2 and Doe 3 as MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures. Doe 1 is for MJ. Estate filed a demurrer in the civil case. Judge decided to keep Doe 1 as a placeholder for the time being pending the outcome of the probate claim. Judge granted the demurrer request of the corporate defendants but gave Robson the chance to amend his complaint.
(Legal explanation: Judge sustained the demurrer with leave to amend. Demurrer is dismissal request stating there’s no legal basis for a lawsuit. Sustain a demurrer means law does not recognize a legal claim for the facts stated by the complaining party. Leave to amend means the plaintiff may correct errors filing a corrected, amended complaint).
Robson served his third amended complaint on December 16, 2014. However the online system does not show this document. Estate’s response to the third amended complaint was due March 10, 2015. Luckily this document is available at the online system.
The above may be a little difficult for a non-legal mind, so let’s go over it again:
- Robson filed two cases against the Estate – a civil case and a probate case which has to do with wills, testaments, etc. and in his case with a creditor’s claim.
- The number of the probate case is BP117321.
- The Estate opposes it and says that if the judge allows late filing of a creditor’s claim, they are likely to deny it. Robson threatens that in this case he will add the Executors of MJ’s Estate as Doe 4 and Doe 5 to his other (civil) case.
- The number of his other, civil case is BC508502.
- The civil lawsuit was filed by Robson against Michael Jackson (Doe 1) and MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures (Doe 2 and Doe 3). This number of defendants may be increased by Doe 4 and Doe 5 in case Robson fulfils his threat and adds the Executors to the case.
- In the civil case the Estate filed a demurrer (request to dismiss it) and the judge sustained it as he didn’t recognize Robson’s claim as a legal one. However Robson was allowed to “correct errors” in it and on December 16, 2014 he filed already his third amended version of the complaint.
- In this post we discussed the second amended version of his claim dated February 14, 2014. So the good boy Robson is changing his story even quicker that we follow it and handle his amended lies. Most probably Robson is busy changing the wording of his motivation why he made his complaint at so late a time in order to make his case go forward on a formal basis.
- The LA Superior Court page does not show Robson’s third amended complaint, but it has the Estate’s second demurrer to it (second request to dismiss) filed on March 10, 2015. Anyone can read its summary on the Daily Michael site quoted above. Unfortunately this second request for dismissal doesn’t explain what amendments were made by Robson in his third version of the complaint.
- And the last note to make here is that the page where the prices for the documents are cited is seen only by those who have registered with the site. For all others the document with a lengthy name of “Notice of hearing on demurrer and demurrer to third amended complaint by defendants MJJ Productions, Inc. and MJJ Ventures, Inc; Memorandum of points and authorities in support” will look like a simple “Demurrer” on the page open to the general public.
- The comparison of two pages proves that the document is actually one and the same, though its name looks different:
- The date of 3/10/2015 and the common subject confirms that these fragments refer to one and the same document.
- I’m explaining all this for your better guidance and making the process of your swimming in the sea of court papers easier. Knowing the numbers of the cases you can follow their progress at the online site of the LA Superior Court absolutely individually. Here is a link to it.
Now come Safechuck’s documents.
Over here we don’t have help from the Daily Michael and have to swim on our own:
- The front page of Safechuck’s “supplementary declaration” refers to the same probate case as Robson’s – BP117321. This means that Safechuck is also party to a Creditor’s claim against the Estate and also aspires to $1.62 billion from them.
- The front page of another of his documents (“Opposition to the Estate’s demurrer”) dated December 3rd, 2014 informs us that his probate case BP117321 is related to his civil case BC545264 called “Safechuck vs. Doe 1. et al”.
- This means that Safechuck also filed a civil lawsuit against the Estate and it is separate from Robson’s. See this page for proof that Safechuck filed two cases and they are related to Robson’s civil suit:
- However next comes a big surprise for all of us – the search of LA Superior Court online documents for civil case BC545264 filed by James Safechuck says that there is no case under this number.
So in December 2014 the civil case was still there (as the above paper showed it) and by March 2015 it has already disappeared?
Well, this strange phenomenon can probably mean that Safechuck is happy with his and Robson’s common probate case BP117321 for a creditor’s claim of $1.62 billion, and/or cancelled, suspended or merged his civil case with that of Robson’s?
Regardless of the reason Safechuck’s probate case seems to be the only one active at the moment.
Indeed, the front page of Safechuck’s ‘supplementary’ declaration clearly says that it comes under probate case BP117321 and was filed on March 18, 2015. However we’ve already learned that the open sources of the LA Superior Court don’t show it.
- This means that the document is sealed, but this obstacle, as we also know, didn’t prevent the two anti-Michael sources (RadarOnline and MJ hate facts) from readily publishing it.
- Let me stress once again that this is proof enough that these sources are working against MJ in close collaboration with each other and that Safechuck, Robson and their lawyers are part of the collusion.
And though it is always useful to sort out the papers and see the actual status of the cases, one of the biggest conclusions for me from all this paperwork is that since the alleged “victims” are so closely knit with anti-MJ forces (Radaronline, MJ haters’ site) we should no longer tolerate their hypocritical statements that “information about $1.62 billion wanted by Robson isn’t credible as it was reported by a tabloid.”
$1.62 BILLION ONCE AGAIN
The terrible hypocrisy of this statement is the fact that the tabloid in question is actually the haters’ own pal. It is their favourite RadarOnline with whom the alleged “victims” share their innermost secrets and sealed papers, so if this pal reports the sum of $1.62 billion demanded by the complainants, let the haters accept it, please.
Rewording a quote attributed to Harry Truman, this tabloid may indeed be son of a bitch, but it is their son of a bitch, so let MJ haters stop being choosy and fastidious as regards their requirements for “more credible” sources. As they make their bed so they must lie on it, and if RadarOnline is their favourite mouthpiece and proven collaborator they should accept from it whatever it has to offer them.
So let us not even consider a possibility of doubt when we cite RadarOnline as a source of information about the $1.62 billion grab Robson and Safechuck are hoping to make by their fictional stories.
Let us state boldly, clearly and without hesitation that $1.62 billion is really the sum they want from Michael Jackson’s Estate:
Radar Online reported yesterday that Wade Robson, a dance choreographer, alleges that he was extensively molested, raped, and even called “son” by Jackson.
According to the lawsuit for a massive $1.62 billion, the abuse took place at Michael Jackson’s Santa Barbara County ranch, as well as other locations, from 1990 until 1997.
In a claim reportedly worth $1.62 billion, Brisbane-born dance choreographer Wade Robson alleges he was extensively molested, raped and even called ‘son’ by Michael Jackson. He alleges the molestation took place at the late singer’s Santa Barbara County ranch and other locations in the from 1990 until 1997 although Jackson’s estate lawyers have called the accusations outrageous and pathetic, reported Radar Online.
The above sum is wanted for something the accusers didn’t initially remember, or didn’t realize, or realized but didn’t report, or reported but didn’t realize (this last point refers to Safechuck who allegedly told his mother in 2005 that MJ was “bad”, but nevertheless “didn’t understand it” until 2014).
A comment made by one of the observers on the above word manipulations solves the mystery of their total lack of logic and explains all these “late creditor’s claims” and “their unawareness that they were abused” in a laconic statement which I wholly agree with:
“They didn’t file a case till the estate was out of the red. They didn’t have any trouble understanding that fact.”
Nothing could explain the essence of these cases better and in so few words too.
THE POKER GAME
Considering that Radaronline and other sources reporting the $1.62 billion demand also heavily focus on the “rape” issue regarding Wade Robson let me say a short word about it too.
When I first learned that Robson was claiming “anal rape”, I reacted to it with a huge sigh of relief – yes, relief.
This detail pointed to a blatant lie from Robson as rape (even when presented as “consensual”) can never be forgotten by a child, cannot be mistaken for anything else and can leave no room for any another interpretation other than what it is.
So when Robson claimed that when he testified in court at the age of 23 and even at the age of 30 he still “didn’t realize” that he had been raped, he made himself look like a complete clown and a total idiot at that.
The “rape” point was a clear blunder on his part. As is usual with fake accusers such a mistake resulted from his desire to make his story more shocking and impressive, however the end result was the opposite one – it made his allegations sound too ridiculous and absurd, and in their turn compromised his other, “milder” complaints.
So remembering this blunder in Robson’s story it was exceptionally interesting to find out what claims were made by his co-conspirator Safechuck. Would he make the same mistake and would he avoid it?
To determine it we needed to find Safechuck’s first complaint and compare it with his ‘supplementary’ one recently pressed on us by MJ haters.
Safechuck’s original complaint was filed on May 10, 2014 which came (surprise-surprise) right on the eve of releasing Michael Jackson’s Xscape album on May 13th.
However a thorough search for the document brought me nowhere – the paper was sealed from the very start of it and has not yet been unsealed (in contrast to Robson’s declaration, for example).
But if we never saw that paper, then who was the one to break Safechuck’s story to us?
Well, naturally it was RadarOnline, who in their turn referred to Michael’s big friend Diane Dimond and she in her turn said that she had got the story from the sources close to Safechuck.
Great. So the very least we can conclude from the above is that now we have proof that the group of “insiders” having direct access to Robson and Safechuck papers includes not only Radaronline and MJ hater site, but the old veteran Diane Dimond too.
Another highly observant commentator noted in this connection that Safechuck as the “anxious little wreck” who claimed in his declaration that he was fearful of coming forward “because of publicity” nevertheless “made sure to run to Diane Dimond to get her report about his complaint when it was hardly even filed yet”.
There are many more illogical points in his declaration but let us leave the discussion of it until a later time. At the moment let us try to simply find out what claims were made by Safechuck in his initial complaint. The only source we have to rely on here is Diane Dimond and she said that his claim was “the same type of sex abuse claim as Wade’s”:
“The latest sexual assault complaint, filed in court last Friday, remains sealed, but two sources close to the case revealed that the man involved is James Safechuck. …Partners in that firm declined to comment on their latest filing.
“It’s the same type of sex abuse claim as Wade’s,” a source close to Safechuck said. “Only with a different set of facts … and dates.”
This made me think that Safechuck’s story could also include the alleged rape, which would be actually good for reasons stated above. However another insider called DSSL who is one more person actively cooperating with the MJ hate team, revealed in a recent entry on a MJ haters’ site that Safechuck’s complaint didn’t include “anal sodomy”.
Well, if it is true it is actually a disappointment as it is a correction of the scammers’ initial mistake.
Let us remember that Safechuck made his claim a year after Robson, and by then it had become clear that the public would not buy a story that a grave abuse like the one described by Robson could be first “forgotten”, or conversely (as his later version suggested it) “never forgotten” but still “not realized to be sexual abuse” until after some therapy sessions helped poor Robson to understand it.
This story was totally lame and implausible, and by the time Safechuck emerged from his therapy and made his complaint a year later this blunder had already been spotted and was no longer to be repeated.
Of course Diane Dimond’s vague description that the alleged abuse of Safechuck was “the same as Wade’s” made the public think what their wildest imagination prompted them to think, but the scammers themselves realized that Safechuck’s complaint should not include the allegations that would look too ridiculous and would be too easy to debunk – and hence their decision to drop the rape version even as a chance.
Let us remember that these people are playing a poker game against Michael Jackson and are opening their cards very slowly, each time checking the reaction of Michael’s defenders. And depending on the critical feedback they get from us they change their story accordingly.
Their business is a non-stop factory of lies about MJ, where one model of lies is replaced by another one depending on the weak spots in their previous produce uncovered by the other side.
So does it mean that we should sit and wait till they provide us with the final variant of their fictional stories? Well, I’m not so sure of it. Given that their lies are endless, waiting for years while they tell their whole story would be equivalent to leaving the field of the battle to them alone and for many years to come too.
However as one reader recently said, it is a high-stake game where “bloggers are helping to win the battle, but may be contributing to losing the war”.
Considering that all these people are actually playing a game with us I agree that there is some danger in the early debunking of the accusers’ lies as it will help them to fine tune their stories and make them more “perfect” for a time to present them in court.
On the other hand, a mere enumeration of their various alternating versions may be also much fun for the jury to listen to if it ever comes to that stage, so for the case it does let us carefully and methodically list each of their twists and turns and new ‘amended’ stories they so readily produce.
In short I still believe we should go forward irrespective of what they do – only with more care and precaution now. The thing we should always keep in mind is the infinite amount of lies these scoundrels are capable of telling, their ability to go back on everything they say and morph one story into another, and the totally criminal modus operandi they adhere to.
Modus operandi is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as “method of operation”. The term is used to describe someone’s habits of working, particularly in the context of business or criminal investigations.
The expression is often used in police work when discussing a crime and addressing the methods employed by the perpetrators. It is also used in criminal profiling, where it can help in finding clues to the offender’s psychology. It largely consists of examining the actions used by the individuals to execute the crime, prevent its detection and/or facilitate escape. A suspect’s modus operandi can assist in their identification and can also be used to determine links between crimes.
