Blog 1 Psychic Crime Detectivess

  Kaitlyn LeVance

In lecture 6, the topic of whether or not psychics are essentially "real" and if they can be used to accurately help solve detective cases. In the slide show the examples that were given showed that in both cases the psychic give very vague answers and descriptions about details in the case. The lecture also provides an example of psychics versus collage students and testing their ability to describe details in a mock case that was set up for them, and it was concluded that although the physics made more clams than the students, both were too vague and not accurate enough to be deemed useful for solving the case. 

In my personal opinion, I don't believe physics are a reliable resource to be using in police activity.  I think that most of the information they provide to the police is too vague. With all the information that they provide it can almost be more misleading and distracting from the actual cold hard evidence that could be used to solve the case. Below is a link to a more recent case of how police tries to use mediums to help find a missing girl, but unfortunately their attempt was unsuccessful.
