However, Garver also commits an injustice. Adzel and Chee Lan applied for a warrant, alleging that David Falkayn was being held prisoner. Garver's comment:
"'Naturally, the warrant was refused.'" (p. 410)
Naturally! Any serious allegation should routinely be investigated without prejudicing the outcome of the investigation. A colleague of mine suspected racial discrimination when he was turned down for a job. His concerns were addressed. He was shown, and accepted, that he had not been the best qualified applicant. Unaddressed, his suspicion and resentment would have continued and grown.
Garver's evident indifference as to whether the allegation concerning Falkayn might in fact be true is appalling. His hostility to Solar Spice & Liquors influences his judgment.
