Most (I would hope) civilians/victims don't run around their office/store/home doing tasks while being questioned by a police officer. Normal folk sit down and pay intense attention to cops' questions and their own responses (I'm looking at you, SVU, CSI, and most every crime drama ever invented).

In response to up-thread observation about how difficult it is to start a modern-day car by hotwiring: some apparently Olde Timey thieves tried to steal my BMW by randomly pullling wires and jamming a screwdriver into the ignition.
