Criminal Profiling Doesn’t Work

Impressed by Criminal Minds? Don’t be. It was great television, but criminal profiling doesn’t work.

You might as well ask a psychic with a tea cosy on her head in a fairground tent. From time to time psychics and profilers make a lucky guess, and this is trumpeted to the media. But based in reality? Reliable? Scientific? No.

Criminal profiling is an illusion.
