Ive had docs say and do stupid things but noy often. Ive had EMTs who were certainly in on gs. To a very nasty degree.
Ive seen perps pose as clergy (once) and experienced gs from religious Jews.
I assume the posing as clergy is purposely to make it obvious they are breaking these rules or make it clear this is not who they are or work for.
It does explain GS generally. Imagine so many years ago David Lawson convinced Targets that perps were terrorists outside the law, cops weren't involved and and it was all cults.
