So, here’s the thing.
Comedy allows me to break the rules. In reality, I don’t think the FBI or police or any law enforcement body would be able to treat Freddie like he’s being treated here.
I’m not saying that cops don’t cut corners but just not to this extent.
But, you laughed right? And Freddie’s a geek and a perv so it’s ok, right?
Eh…that’s something to think about. Had I written the scene differently and it was an 80 year old tee totaling minister being attacked by Gordon, you’d be outraged but Freddie’s a scumbag so it’s funny.
And it is funny but we have to keep in mind that everyone has rights regardless of how nice or scummy they may be.
