    The Accuracy of Criminal Profiling As society keeps expanding, through growth and technology, more opportunities for crimes pop up in our daily lives, ranging from internet gambling, all the way to insider trading. But as with any criminal movement, criminal justice is not far behind. Half the battle of fighting crime is knowing what to look for, and the other half is knowing how to stop it. Criminal profiling does both, and being in a generation with James Holmes and The Columbine shooting, there couldn’t be a better time for criminal profiling.

Criminal Profiling involves making inferences about a criminal from aspects of the crime or crimes she or he has committed. While criminal profiling derives from the concepts of psychology, which is an acknowledged school of science, the question is whether this is just an educated guess or a science as well. When faced with a crime, a police investigator must figure the most appropriate way to peruse and identify the culprit from the given information (evidence.) But sometimes it’s not that easy.

    “The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!” Israel is a holy place for worship: this holy place has been damaged from the battles fought here and the soldiers who have been slain here. The battle that has taken place here is a reference to the battle that had been fought between David and Goliath. “Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.” Let the daughters rejoice that the war is over,…

    the Psalm of David. The whole psalm is an appeal to heaven from a bold heart and a clear conscience, irritated beyond measure by oppression and hatred. Beyond a doubt David 's Lord may be seen here by the spiritual eye. Psalm 35 was written either about David and his revenge against Saul, or about a legal court: the proceedings, defense and appeal. Both ideas were split into three main parts. The Psalm of David should be “classified as belonging to the form group: prayer songs”. The most…
