I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.

Here is today’s prompt word.

As I may have mentioned before, I love the Crime channels and often watch them when I have some free time. I find it fascinating how the whole story unravels piece by piece. There may be many false leads, mistakes, and oversights along the way, but when it all comes together and not only is the mystery solved, but justice has been served on the perpetrator of the crime, it must be a bittersweet moment. Happiness that the criminal will be punished, but, particularly in more serious cases, sadness that people can commit such appalling acts towards one another. Some of the crime scenes are so horrendous that I don’t know how these amazing agencies carry on. Traumatised is an understatement as to how they must feel!

The various people that are involved in the process of solving a crime, often have painstaking and fiddly work to carry out, run into many obstacles along the way and probably get utterly despondent -yet they keep going. These people are there to find justice for the victim and that is what they are going to do, sometimes even if it takes years, (which it quite often does).

For some of the detectives, forensic officers and others it becomes a mission to bring a criminal to justice, especially when they know who did it but have to prove it. Their tenacity and dedication is something that I really admire, and no words of praise that I can offer would ever do them justice!
