Character Interview with a Killer
This interview is coming to you from a Florida prison. I’m sitting at a table, waiting for David Buckland aka Buck to be brought in by guards. I’m a bit nervous. I only have a few minutes to ask him questions and he’s not exactly warm and fuzzy. But I don’t have any more time to think about that because here he comes.
*Buck takes a seat across from me, the guard backs away.*
Chrys: Thanks for meeting with me.
Buck: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Not like I had a real choice in the matter.
Chrys: Okay. First question . . .
1. How did you get caught up in Jackson Storm’s drug ring?
*laughs* You think I was dragged into it by Chewy? I was the one who brought him into it. The narcotics kept in the department are a gold mind. All the money! Through street contacts, I linked up with Jackson. He liked the idea of cops working for him, so I approached Chewy and a few others in the department who I knew had the same hunger for money. It didn’t take long before cops from other precincts joined us.
2. But you ran into a problem; You were caught. How did that happen?
We weren’t as careful as we should’ve been. People started to notice narcs going missing and an investigation started. We thought we covered our bases by bribing the man in charge of the evidence locker, but we were wrong…he snitched.
4. Just as you killed the Internal Affairs Investigator who found out—Ryan Goldwyn?
We had to kill him. He put his nose in our business. We had to get rid of him to eliminate the threat of our operation going under.
5. And yet it still went under because of his brother, Donovan. Do you have anything to say to him?
Yeah. He better look over his shoulder for the rest of his life.
