Okay, the show just began where I live, but I have a question that’s right on the border between GQ and Cafe Society. This can be the weekly discussion thread as well, I guess.
Cops responding to a B&E found a chair propped under the knob of a closet door, keeping it closed.
Without touching the door, they called in Grissom and crew, who spent an unspecified period of time painstakingly dusting the chair, and then the doorknob, for prints. Then and only then did they remove the chair and open the door to see what was inside.
Is this at all likely? People prop chairs against doors to keep things inside from getting out. For all the cops and scientists knew, there was a living person on the other side of the door, perhaps tied and gagged, perhaps incapacitated and in need of medical attention.
Wouldn’t they have opened the door immediately? The possibility that someone needed help would seem to outweigh the value of any evidence on the chair and door.
