The report that someone had struck Rick Jones over the head, cut "die fag" into his arms, stole $1800, and then threw a molotov cocktail through his home window, was a very serious report, one requiring intense investigation, as a drain upon resources.
Statement Analysis of the few statements Mr. Jones made showed that his words did not proceed from experiential memory.
This is the value of formal training in Statement Analysis. From the very beginning, not only would a good deal of money and resources be saved, but a criminal would be brought to justice.
The value of formal training in analysis is without estimate. It provides justice, clears the innocent, saves money and resources, and provides great traction for the careers of dedicated law enforcement professionals, just as it does in Human Resources, and other professions where communication is essential.
Rick Jones used the politically explosive environment to steal money from the public, and he almost got away with it as his "Go Fund Me" account was on the rise.
When someone uses a politically correct electric environment in order to steal money, what would you call it?
A "hate crime"?
Few crimes are of contrary emotion, but when an innocent man could, potentially, lose his freedom due to a false report, it is not a crime of 'civility.' Even more so, when a false report is made of a crime and the public responds with animosity towards a specific group of people, assuming that a person of faith "must have" committed the crime, it takes upon itself a new level of civic animosity, as the divide of the nation continues.
But what would you call a false report of a crime that causes not only animosity and upset in a community, but also costs a small locale much expense and time in investigating that which never took place?
Here we couple theft with a waste of law enforcement resources.
What would you now call it?
Next, what would you call it if you were a defense attorney?
Rick Jones is not the only deceptive person in this story.
Will the attorneys successfully use animosity towards conservatives and empathy towards homosexuality as a successful defense of a thief?
If so, it will send a strong signal to other scammers of "defense by reason of sex" is a card to be played and will set yet another precedent against justice.
