Judge as you would be judged
Friday 19 May 1995
Last week's episode focused on Max, an African grey parrot, which stood (or perched) as the sole witness to an horrific murder. This week's instalment, "The Stalker", concerns the case of postman William Kinsley who, having met new recruit Tom McIlvane, was then faced with a series of death threats, as McIlvane blamed Kinsley for his subsequent sacking. What was the outcome of this disagreement? This is America, remember, so the man with no post burst into Kinsley's depot (fortunately for Kinsley on his day off) and proceeded to shoot dead most of Kinsley's pals, before turning the gun on himself. Result? Kinsley's subsequent "imprisonment" in a nowhere PO with nothing to do, effectively blamed for McIlvane's violent breakdown.
The old "scapegoat" word immediately leaps to the fore, as Kinsley exposes the crooked justice system before the interrotron - a device that allows subjects to look directly into the camera lens, while looking at a live image of the interviewer. The result is an intense, personal account of post office politics - Postman Pat would have been horrified.
