When one of two 'cops' alternate their interviews. The 'Bad Cop' behaves negatively toward the subject, making blatant accusations, derogatory comments, threats, and in general raising the subject's antipathy. This sets the stage for the 'Good Cop' to deceptively act supportive, understanding, defensive, and in general show sympathy for the subject, which may make the subject cooperative towards the latter.
Pledge 1: "Dude, how about what Tiffany
, the bad cop, said at the pledge meeting last night?"
Pledge 2: "Oh I know man. It made me feel so terrible. I'm just glad Danny
was there to make us all feel better."
