In Prisoners (2013), detective Loki is seen questioning the boy that was drawing mazes while being watched by cops.

At one point, he is tired of waiting for him to give any information about the missing girls, and storms into the interrogation room and assaults the boy, leading to cops intervening and pushing them apart. The boy manages to take a gun from one of the cops and he shoots himself.

I thought that questioning rooms have a basic rule of no-weapons/fire-arms allowed. Was this a different kind of an interrogation room, or were weapons there for the sake of the plot?

  • Uh...I have to wonder, why did you approve the edit suggestion retroactively after it was rejected by other users and moderators, only to then rollback the edit yourself for the very same reason that the suggestion didn't improve anything? – Napoleon Wilson Jul 21 at 9:19

    I don't know who added the tag [realism]. I though the edit was about removing that tag. When I accepted it, the tag was now added permanently. So my approval had the opposite effect of what I intended it to be. That's why I edited the question again and removed the tag. Hope that clears what happened. Was I wrong to do that? @NapoleonWilson – Ahmad Jul 21 at 9:33

    The tag wasn't on the question before. The edit suggestion was for adding the tag and it had previously been rejected. However, you as the post author have the ability to approve it retroactively even after it was rejected already. This is what you did, so the post got edited and the tag added. You weren't wrong to remove the tag afterwards, it seems you just got confused about what the edit actually suggested, which is why you approved an edit you didn't actually want to be made in the first place. – Napoleon Wilson Jul 21 at 9:37
  • @Napoleon Wilson I was the one who added the tag [realism]. And I did so because I felt that the question relates "realistic"-ness of the scene, i.e. weapons in the interrogation room are realistic or not. Please let me know if I'm wrong in my thinking. – AryanSonwatikar Jul 21 at 13:30
  • @NapoleonWilson I see. I think you were right in adding the tag if that was the case. – Ahmad Jul 22 at 5:22
