From the article:

Despite popular belief and claims to the contrary, there is not a single documented case of a missing person being found or recovered due to psychic information. Psychics have consistently failed to find missing persons

We should stop this nonsense.

I think these psychics cause real problems because they tend to make criminal cases about THEM and THEIR supposed powers. Instead of the severity of the case itself. It's attention seeking and it's not healthy for the criminal justice system.

A bunch of police departments would beg to differ ,and the nyc cops don't use them for missing persons cases .

Simbi, with complete respect, if it were proveable, or even consistently reliable, every police force on the planet would have a psychic division working on every single crime.  However, they do not.  Maybe a few people have gotten lucky, maybe a few others were actually involved in the crime, maybe, maybe, maybe...  That's the problem with this, it's all a bunch of maybe's.  Even the article you quoted says things like "appers to have" and "was reported to", and gets excited about "up to a 75% success rate".  There is nothing concrete about this.  Whatsoever.

It would be cool to have a world where all of life's problems could be solved by thinking about them while holding a finger to your temple, but the reality in this particular scenario is that we need good solid police work, uncluttered by at best well meaning yet delusional people, at worst people involved with the actual crimes, and at most likely people who are just in it for the attention.  All one needs to do is refer to the article this thread is about to see the logic in that.

Personally, I hope this person's lawsuit succeeds, so that police departments contemplating such a gong show will be forced to think twice before going against the logic and common sense their profession SHOULD be based ENTIRELY upon, and that the topic not be revisited until someone can demonstrate a 100% success rate in this methodology over an enormous multitude of tests.
