Acting-Director “The Complex”, Dr Davies sent the attached for information only; no action is requested or indicated.
“The incident documented in Unit Log in the early hours of yesterday, 14/05/09 has been investigated by the Special Ops personnel on site. Conclusion is that all the young men drank about 10-12 units of alcohol some 2-3 hours before, when they were allowed too much free beer in the guest bar. The bar staff have been suitably advised. My hypothesis is that the alcohol interacted with the energy supplement content to dis-inhibit the youths into violence. As the supplement had already boosted performance scores markedly I do not suggest an alteration at this time.
The Complex was contacted today by a Coroner’s Officer about the tragic accidental death of Subject A1 in a road incident. No association seems likely with her attendance here from 13 April 2009 on our course 1A.”
TRANSCRIPT JOB CENTRE INTERVIEW
SUBJECT Z03 AND ADVISER
“Hello Johnno, how are you this morning, sorry afternoon?”
“Shit, awful, tuckered and pissed off! Why?”
“Well, I thought you would have enjoyed spending your benefit bonus I gave you last week, no?”
“Yeah, well, sort of. I’ve been right cheesed-off since last Saturday. Mum wonders if the smack on the head I got at that place has affected me brain?”
(Short laugh recorded)
“Johnno, your brain has taken far more damage than that without any noticeable effect that I’ve ever seen!”
“Maybe. Had the report back from them then?”
“Yes, that’s why I asked you to come in. The Complex found you to have considerable practical skills in hand-eye coordination and…”
“What the fuck is that?”
“Johnno, you seem to be good with your hands in making things. But your lack of literacy is a big problem for you. We didn’t actually know that you, well, couldn’t read and write?”
“Me mum does that stuff for me, OK?”
“Well, no! No wonder you’ve had problems with the jobs we’ve sent you for! Would you go and see our literacy adviser about it.”
