Red Harvest #9

by

Willoughby was a dying breed, an old school cop with a conscience, who unlike his hot headed deputy, Collins, didn’t jump to conclusions. In his long service he’d put faith in securing the hard evidence, constructing a case brick by brick until there was no reasonable doubt; although he was uneasy about Calley’s account he would give him the benefit of the doubt until he had the compelling facts to nail him. Collins, disagreeing with his chief, would’ve taken a contrasting approach; given a free rein he’d have had Calley chained and thrown into the County slammer, questions asked afterwards.
