In Friday the 13th
(2009), Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki) goes searching for Whitney, his missing sister. A cop (Richard Burgi) offers no help; the local police have basically given up.
But why? Did the cops not find that filthy cabin near the lake? Clay found it easily. Did they know about the cabin, but considered it to be completely irrelevant to search for the missing girl and the other kids? Why? They should have searched the place during daylight. And how did the cops miss the GPS unit dropped by one of Jason's victims? Clay found it.
The cops have a lot to answer for in this film. Did they completely fail to find victims or stop Jason because they were shorthanded? Or were the cops just lazy or incompetent?
