Written by Allison   
Tuesday, 15 November 2011 14:51

False confessions are a phenomenon many find mystifying.

Written by Allison   
Saturday, 09 April 2011 12:00

As anyone with a degree in forensic psychology will tell you, criminal profiling, as practiced during the Victorian era was elementary at best. Considering the crime rate of the time, and the lack of consistent police formation and subsequent involvement, profiling was used more as a practicality than actual deductive tool. However, profiling, whether noted in use or not, was employed in one of the most infamous murder cases in history: the Ripper Murders.

It is not simply against future conspiracies of evil men which we have to guard ourselves but it is against ourselves, against weaknesses and faults in our own social order, in our own ways of living against which we have to be on continual guard. (Cameron, Nuremberg Trials, 1945)

While non-verbal cues can come into play when observing social interaction, words are the very essence of human communication.

While the United States was introduced to ritual murders via cult dabblers, and basically, rather psychotically sociopathic individuals, beginning in the 1960s, it was not until the early 1980s that allegations of ritual murder began to evolve, indicating that a far more sinister plot might be afoot.

Dangerous Ideas
Written by Editor   
Monday, 13 August 2007 03:08
"Every era has its dangerous ideas. For millennia, the monotheistic religions have persecuted countless heresies, together with nuisances from science such as geocentrism, biblical archeology, and the theory of evolution. We can be thankful that the punishments have changed from torture and mutilation to the canceling of grants and the writing of vituperative reviews. But intellectual intimidation, whether by sword or by pen, inevitably shapes the ideas that are taken seriously in a given era, and the rear-view mirror of history presents us with a warning." -- Steven Pinker, 2007
