This is a very interesting event, purely in terms of the police's tactical strategy.
Clifford was the #1 person to go to when/if you had money and got arrested. So now, the police have taken him completely off the field. He's radioactive now; no other perp can talk to him, for fear Clifford will turn rat to save his own skin, which he might have done already.
Stay tuned. And keep your eyes peeled for developments.
But he grew old, this knight so bold / And upon his heart a shadow / Fell as he found / No spot on the ground / That looked like El Dorado.
