[WATCH] When Bad Cops Realize They've Been Arrested

The notion that a person being interrogated should display grief or concern upon learning about someone is death as an indicator of their guilt has always been a point of contention for me. However, when one considers the gravity of being accused of murder and the potential consequences it entails, it becomes apparent that in that moment, one's own life may also be at stake.

In situations where individuals find themselves in highly defensive circumstances, whether they are guilty or innocent, it is common for their self-preservation instincts to take precedence over any potential feelings of grief for the deceased. This tendency can be attributed to human nature. When someone close to us is falsely accused during an interrogation, it is common for us to experience a profound sense of grief. This emotional response is often triggered by the injustice of the situation, as we witness our loved one being wrongly implicated in a crime they did not commit. 

Exceptions exist when it comes to grieving for a deceased individual. For instance, if the person who has passed away is someone who, in theory, holds immense significance to another individual, such as a spouse or a child, the loss can be devastating, akin to a death sentence in that particular moment. However, even in such cases, there is an exception. If the person being questioned harbors even the slightest doubt, as low as 1%, regarding the veracity of the information provided by the interrogators, they are unlikely to display any signs of grief or concern. One of the most significant indicators of guilt is observed at the conclusion of the day. When it comes to body language and language analysis, there is a wide range of indicators that can be observed.

However, it is interesting to note that one particular indicator, which is often considered less significant, tends to be prioritized by many individuals, including interrogators. In the initial scenario presented, the narrator anticipates that a man who is suffering from a hangover and is aware of being accused of murder would display signs of sorrow or mourning upon learning about the demise of an individual with whom he may have had a connection (although he cannot recall due to his impaired memory).

It is important to note that many individuals, including police interrogators, often lack the same level of logical reasoning as the narrator. This fact can be quite alarming, leading to the recommendation that one should exercise caution and refrain from engaging in conversations with the police, if possible.
