Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): can you please outline
exactly what happened on the day in question?
I’m not sure Ive got everything straight in my
head

Lady B: for the fifth time now, we received a call
saying some gang members were harassing a
local shop owner. This gang was under
investigation for their links to the Magia crime
family, who have a demonstrated track record
of using super powers

Mr J.C. Grabbitt: let the record show that when
my client uses the phrase ‘super powers’ she is
no way associating herself with right wing
groups, or in any way denigrating those who do
not have meta-human abilities.

Lady B: yeah.. right.. um… so we turn up…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): we?

Lady B: yeah we, the Knights of Albion:
I assume you have heard of us already as I have
already answered this question. So anyway WE
all turn up and there are two dragon lords
attacking an old man. He is defending himself
with a broom and the Engineer…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): when you say the
Engineer you mean Mr Jeremiah Watkins?

Lady B: yes, again yes… anyway the Engineer
dives in front of him and I see this knife…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): how did you see the
knife through the crowd? Surely you must
be the best part of seven feet tall, and you
said earlier there was a crowd between
you and the old man?

Lady B: there was a gap in the crowd; I
saw the blade, but as not as quickly as
the Engineer. Then these two vans starting
disgorging hordes of dragon lords…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): a horde? How many
men can exit a van at one time? Four? Five maybe?

Lady B: there was about twenty of them

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): all twenty were outside
of the van?

Lady B: … no… probably only about half a
dozen of them actually outside of the
vans… can I continue? Thank you… anyway
I saw there were a very large number of
gang members…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): how did you know
they were gang members?

Lady B: The Jackets, the hair, the fact
they were carrying weapons? The usual
clues. Any way I say this very large
number of gang members…

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): Twenty

Lady B: ok… twenty gang members and so
I decided to utlise my shockwave powers
to subdue all of them at once

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): Subdue? Don’t you
think you did far more than just subdue them

Officers note in transcript – whispered
conversation between Lady B and
Mr J.C. Grabbitt

Lady B: I took an operational decision in
the split second of time available to me

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): and you decided to
use the full force of your powers against them?

Lady B: certainly not, you humans are far to
fragile to use my full might against, that’s why
I didn’t hit any of them with my hands and
only used the shockwave attack

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): are you saying the
‘shockwave attack’ is not a full strength
a manoeuvre?

Lady B: That’s correct

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): you realise that you
almost killed 20 people, obliterated two
vans and have destroyed so much of the
building behind them that it had to
be condemned?!

Lady B: I took an operational decision in
the split second of time available to me

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): couldn’t you have
used another power? Or reduced the
intensity of the attack you chose to use?

Lady B: I took an operational decision in
the split second of time available to me

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): five people nearly
died, would have died if your team mates
had not acted with such speed to
administer aid

Lady B: I took an operational decision in
the split second of time available to me

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): there are a dozen
young men who have suffered life
changing injuries as a results of
your ‘subdual’?

Lady B: I took an operational decision in
the split second of time available to me

Officer (Sec 38(1)(a)): lost arms… lost legs,
one of them will be paralysed form the
waist down in all likelihood, not to mention
the scaring and nightmares they will all
have to live with. Do you have anything
to say to that?

Lady B: … I …. I…
