“Most people think of criminals as hunchbacked, cross-eyed little monsters slithering through the dark leaving a trail of slime. They're not. They're human beings.”
George R. Dekle Sr.

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Circumstantial evidence is a very tricky thing. It may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different”
