Another Story About Chuck


The Cops play this game but Chuck and his Partner know it’s coming and are ready. It’s not Good Cop/Bad Cop, though they play that too. It’s called maybe Spanish Prisoner or Swedish Prisoner. Who knows? The gist of it is they pit one against the other. So, before they head out, Chuck and his Partner figure out the details, vowing not to turn the other in, no matter what.  Two hours into the on and off again interrogation, where Chuck isn’t offered even a Coke or cup of coffee, the two Cops come back and drop a few telling details about the “event” that were not including in the plan. Chuck thinks fast. Thinks about the Mrs. waiting for him at home and the taste of prison food and ditches the pre-event agreement.
