Hey Greg, I really like the show and had a couple of questions.

Question 1: How does Commissioner Gordon afford to send his daughter to a private school on a cop’s salary.

Question 2: I debated asking this because I have a feeling it might be a spoiler request but I wasn’t entirely sure. If it is, feel free to ignore it. Edward Nygma never struck me as having superpowers so why was he being held in Belle Reeve?
Thanks for your time and really I adore the show.

1a. He's not living on a cop's salary, but a Police Commissioner's salary.

1b. There are scholarships.

1c. None of your business how he chooses to budget his money.

2. <sigh> As stated MANY TIMES ALREADY, Belle Reve isn't just for individuals with super-powers. It's for individuals, who qualify as super-criminals. Sometimes the brain is mightier than the brawn, and a traditional prison is not capable of holding these criminals.
