I have heard the following dialogue in the TV series "Unité 42":
- Alors, ça donne quoi, les parents ?
Context: a team of police investigators are investigating a murder of a young Daech recruiter. Two of them have recently talked to the parents of recruited young men recruited by the dead recruiter, which were potential suspects of his murder. In the dialogue above, one of the investigators ask how the questioning of the parents went.
According to Word Reference, "désœuvré" means "idle", "unoccupied", but that translation does not make sense here. Does it mean "hopeless" in this context, indicating that the questionings haven't brought any new leads on the murder case?
