Due to the success of the lateral puzzles in the "A riddle" thread, it seems appropriate to start a lateral thinking puzzle thread.

A rule of thumb to follow would be to allow those who do not know the answer to figure it out for themselves. If you happen to know the answer, please keep it to yourself and let the others have the fun.

Please feel free to start one at any point. It is not necessary to wait for one to finish before starting another one.

Have fun!

To Constable Spike:

"Did Mr Smith come to the station willingly? Did you pick them up from Mr Smith's home address?"

"Did Mr Brown come to the station willingly? Did you pick them up from Mr Brown's home address?"

"Do you have vital evidence that I should enquire about?"


To Mr Brown:

"Did you know Mr Smith prior to this incident? Are you related at all? Are you aquainted with Mrs Smith? Again, are you related? Do you know anything about the alleged rape?"

To Mr Smith:

"Were you trying to hurt your wife when you gave her that black eye? Have you calmed down yet?"

To Mrs Smith:

"You came to report a rape, are you the victim of that rape? Do you have any injuries other than your black eye? Are you and Mr Smith happily married?"

"Mr. Brown, did Mrs. Smith seem interested in your "attention" and then change her mind?"

To Mrs Smith

"Did you decide to withdraw your allegation when Mr smith walked in the room?{YES, WELL SLIGHTLY BEFORE, WHEN I FOUND OUT MY HUSBAND WAS FIGHTING WITH MR. BROWN.} Or when Mr Brown walked in the room? { I JUST TOLD YOU} Or when constable Spike walked in the room?" {NO}


Constable Spike takes this opportunity to speak.
"Inspector, might I interject for a moment.? There appear to be some very confusing testimony.
Let me recap what has happened to this point. Mrs. Smith enters your office claiming to have been raped. She is sporting a black eye. I wonder when she acquired that bruise? Mr. Smith has stated he gave her the injury intentionally, and that he was not present when Mrs. Smith was raped. When did the alleged rape happen? If indeed she was even raped. There seems to be a question to the validity of that claim.
Mr. Smith is ready to kill Mr. Brown (Mr. Smiths own words). He has stated for the record that he is positive that Mr. Brown has slept with his wife. How can he be so positive? So far Mr. Brown has said little to shed any light on the situation. As a matter of fact he was somewhat evasive. Sorry to interrupt, please carry on inspector."
