OPP Detective Sgt. Jim Smyth – excellent work

‘Everybody’ has been following the trial of Col. Russel Williams… who had just been sentenced to 25 years in jail with no possibility of parole.

All that needs to be said about what he did has probably already been said – and I’ll not bore you by repeating it.

What I do want to call your attention to is the absolutely awesome work done by OPP’s Behaviour Sciences Section Detective Sgt. Jim Smyth.  Honestly, I am rather impressed by how quickly this Williams guy  has been caught:  a highly skilled military man… he had skills well beyond what one might expect of an ‘ordinary’ criminal.

And, he had been trained how to withstand interrogation, too.  Which is what makes Sgt. Jim Smyth’s accomplishment while interrogating Williams that much more impressive.

Here is part of the interrogation video, as posted by the Global Toronto.  Sgt. Smyth – well done!

My sympathy to all the victims of this criminal and their families.

However, I do get very angry when some people attempt to group Russel Williams’ wife, Mary Elisabeth Harriman, in with the victims!

That very idea is highly offensive.  Remember, Harriman is employed by a charity organization – and draws a ‘six-figure-salary’...  in my eyes, this makes her a kind of a rapist, too!

    Truly amazing. Watching that interview was watching a master at work. To see how Smyth carefully chooses each word and each silence, in a situation with such tremendous pressure for hours on end, is deeply impressive, and he deserves all the accolades he’s receiving.

    I really don’t think you need to be impressed by how quickly williams was caught. At the end of the day, he was just another arrogant, stupid man who took to the military to make up for personal shortcomings. Arrogant because of the way he mocked some of the people whose homes he invaded several times; daring them to call the police. Stupid for wearing the same shoes to the interview and keeping the tires on his SUV that were noted at a crime scene plus whatever else he left behind that he was too stupid to know about.
