And Doc's sort of right, we probably should have been more honest sooner, but I actually did believe TKOK was a scum rolecop and not actually a lie detector.

And let's be honest, it's like Magic said, town has been easily convinced by scum in the past to push lynches on confirmed non-town no matter how harmless they are (lovers or survivors) because it stops a lynch from going to them.

He's the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman.
