WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #26

Episode 26: The Detective's Trap

When a notorious corporate bomber is struck by a car near a police station and loses his memory, the detective from Public Safety responsible for his interrogation shifts his tactics into high gear. His intense and cruel interrogation methods put him at odds with Solbrain. As the detective attempts to use the injured man as a trap to lure the other bombers out of hiding, Solbrain is forced to confront not the bombers, but the concept of brutality among the police force.

Notes: A fantastic Ogizawa episode, and one of the most amazing of the series. Solbrain is forced to confront the ideas of excessive force and brutality among the police. In today's modern society where headlines are frequently dominated by questions about how much policing is too much, and what constitutes torture, this is an interesting character piece that asks how far does one go -- how far CAN one go before what they do is worse than what the criminals themselves do, and is it worth going that far if it saves others?
