During negotiations with a formidable sociopath who is targeting diabetics with tainted insulin, CBS’s Ransom Eric Beaumont, the shows main character played by Luke Roberts, explains to the killer why he stopped working for the FBI. Beaumont, the good guy, says that he left because he hated guns. The bad guy then says that he likes guns.
To make matters worse, one of the members of Beaumont’s hostage negotiation team, Oliver Yates, has a gun that gets him into trouble later in the segment. The FBI was going to investigate him for shooting someone when it turned out that the person he shot was the sociopath who had planned the poisonings and that she had actually pulled the trigger on the gun. The dialogue at the end of the show gives an idea of how heavy the bias is here. After Yates almost gets in trouble with the FBI, they have this discussion.
Eric Beaumont: “Why the gun?”
Oliver Yates: “After what happened to Maxime, I just didn’t feel safe.”
Zara Hallam: “Why didn’t you come to us?”
Yates: “I know that you wouldn’t approve.”
Beaumont: “I get it. I do. But in my experience, the problem with carrying a gun is that eventually it will go off.”
Yates: “I think that I need help.”
