The Inspector is not as orthodox or harsh as David’s father. He often disagrees with Joseph’s very hard line on deviants. When it is found out that David was knowingly playing with Sophie, David’s dad motions to use the inspector’s whip on his son. The inspector refused to let him have it,

“That,” said the inspector curtly, “is my whip.”
