Interrogation themes for anarchists

Anarchists rationalize and justify their behavior by capitalizing on peaceful movements

The anarchist is one who uses violent means to overthrow the established order rebelling against authority or the ruling party. Unfortunately, during 2020, we have seen these crimes increase exponentially.

The offenders are acting in their narrow self-interest, while free to make up their rules as they go with no need to provide logical reasoning. We would all agree that peaceful protesting is not an issue. However, when rioting, vandalism of property, arson, deployment of lasers and fireworks against police officers and other illegal destructive acts take place, legitimate protesting escalates to a crime.

The approach in eliciting the truth with most offenders is to morally, not legally, excuse their behavior while minimizing the seriousness of their crime: "Lou, the reason you shot that guy was that he insulted your girlfriend, refused to apologize, became cocky and laughed in your face. Lou, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Don’t let this split-second mistake in judgment define your life. You’re not a bad guy, you just made a bad decision, right?”

That is the unabridged version of how to obtain the truth from such homicide offenders. However, the mindset of the anarchist is different. There is a more effective, seemingly unorthodox, approach to consider.
