Police and government officials go through years of training in order to refine and craft their skills. They learn the art of the firearm, hand-to-hand combat and defense, and even learn the power of the voice in order to defuse situations.
There are those who specialize in the way of words in order to bring about solutions and resolve dangerous situations: they are called negotiators. They are the best at getting into people’s heads and thoughts, hoping to bring an end to a conflict as peacefully as possible.
They also have the power to say the absolutely wrong things and only make the situations much, much worse than it should have been.

“Unfortunately. Marriage is never easy with the wrong person.”

“We gotta get this man down closer to the window,” the chief ordered.
