These are all tactics to make Titus Young appear as if he has too much value for us to simply release.
Although Mayhew won't make any calls, you can take to the bank that the 1st GM to call DET after March 4th to offer a reasonable deal for Young, will have him.
Mayhew's next step with Titus will be water-boarding.
hahahahahah. That shouldn't be as funny as I found that.
