Advanced Statement Analysis Training June 2016

What does an advanced session look like?

The last week of June's training should be one to "fasten your seatbelt." 

For those who have completed the initial training, they are eligible for both the Advanced Training Course, as well as ongoing monthly training that is broken down by both geographical (time) and experience.  

In an upcoming advanced training session, the team is given a statement by a victim of an assault.  

They must:



1.  Analyze statement for truth.  They must know if she is telling the truth, or if she is deceptive; and they must identify within a deceptive statement which parts of the statement are reliable, which are not, specifically. 

2.  Next, once the analysis is completed and they believe they know what happened, they are to re-visit the statement with their analysis, and seeks a psychological profile, in specifics, regarding the subject's personality type, including its impact upon the language.  

3.  With this profile, they are now to set up the interview strategy with specific questions to be asked. This may include collaterals' interviews.  

4.  They are now to predict, in specifics, the answers to the specific questions, based upon the profile.

5.  Lastly, they are to predict the outcome of the case, itself, and where it will go.  

When this is complete, they will then be addressed with the actual results of the case including the findings, and  including the actual answers the subject gave to questions to see if:

A.  Their analysis conclusion is correct
B.  Their psychological profile matches both the subject's diagnosis and the elements she revealed
C . The questions posed
D.  The predicted answers match the actual answers


This is the outworking of advanced work and it is exhilarating when the analyst has come to this point of knowledge.  

The expectation?

100% accuracy in Statement Analysis


Accurate broad agreement on psychological

Accurate broad agreement on questions

Accurate prediction of the diagnosis, the language, and the specific answers given. 

Lastly, if everything falls into place, not only will they 'know' the answers the subject is likely to give, but they should be able to broadly predict the outcome, based upon both the analysis, experience, and  statistics.  

The professional should have 100% accuracy in Statement Analysis and should have very high rate of accuracy in the psychological profile.  With some diagnosis having definitions that blend, and some even having 'fallen out of favor' the accuracy can be in descriptive terms with strong predictive value.  Whereas one says "borderline" another will say "oppositional":  the 'diagnosis' is not specific, but its general traits.  

Professionals take correction gladly, embrace them, and push towards perfection.

Hi, Peter

what happens (i'm not savvy with US laws) if a suspect pleads the fifth. How would you obtain a statement, written or oral?

John

the Hilary IT person has claimed it more than 125x so far, lest self incriminates.

this means the answer to the question will incriminate the person..."crime" has taken place.

Virtually there is nothing that can be done with an interview for one who refuses to speak. Then, it becomes a shifting burden to gather as much collateral information and evidence to still prove the crime.

The most interesting thing is that when a politician claims "transparency", and then the 5th amendment is invoked, it shows that transparency will not be permitted.

Strangely enough, it is one of the amendments that still holds some authority. Others no longer do, here.

We should've elected Mr Ross Perot. I beleve he was truthful claiming GOP sabotage. That they made politics of personal ruin an art. He would've stopped the flood of drugs from mexico & the flood of jobs to Mexico.

Extracts from tonights interview with Oscar Pistorious:

'I can smell the blood - I can feel the warmness of it on my hands': Oscar Pistorius goes into graphic detail about killing Reeva Steenkamp in TV interview despite being 'too ill' to speak at his sentencing
By Julian Robinson for MailOnline
Oscar Pistorius has given graphic details about the night he killed his girlfriend - breaking down as he revealed he can still 'smell the blood'.
The Paralympian is days away from returning to jail after his original conviction of culpable homicide over the death of Reeva Steenkamp was overturned.
He has now given his first television interview about what he says happened on the night he shot the 29-year-old model at his home in Pretoria, South Africa.
It comes just days after a psychologist told a South African court the Paralympian was 'anxious and depressed' and too ill to give evidence at his sentencing.
In an interview with ITV, the 29-year-old sobbed as he gave his version of what happened on the night of February 14, 2013.
'I did take Reeva's life and I have to live with that,' he said.
'I can smell the blood. I can feel the warmness of it on my hands. And to know that that's your fault, that that's what you've done.
'And I understand the pain people feel, that loved her and miss her. I feel that same pain. I feel that same hate for myself. I feel that same difficulty in understanding this. And I look back and I think, I always think – how did this possibly happen? I think, how could this have happened? How could this have happened?'
In 2014 Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide – similar to manslaughter in British law. But he is now due to be sentenced for murder – a charge which carries a minimum tariff of 15 years.
He was jailed for five years but, in October 2015, was released into house arrest after serving a fifth of his sentence.
Then in December 2015, the culpable homicide verdict was overturned by South Africa's supreme court, following an appeal by the prosecution.
In Oscar Pistorius: The Interview, the former Paralympian speaks to investigative journalist, Mark Williams-Thomas about the night of Ms Steenkamp's death.
He was interviewed at his uncle's home, where he is living while awaiting sentencing, which is expected to be delivered later this month.
The Steenkamp family were asked to take part in the programme, but declined, according to ITV, which will show the documentary on Friday at 9pm.
Pistorius told how he and Ms Steenkamp had gone up to bed and how he had taken his prosthetic legs off.
Before going to sleep he said he told his girlfriend: 'listen if I fall asleep would you mind just closing the doors and switching off the telly?'.
He then woke at about 3am and claimed he heard a 'sliding noise of the window frame hitting the frame' coming from the bathroom and that the building was 'pitch black'.
Pistorius said he 'immediately got panicked' believing it to be an intruder.
'This instant fear comes over me that there's somebody in the house. Somebody's was actually in the process of breaking in. And my first thing was thinking that I need to grab my firearm.
'If this person has already got into the house this window's already reopen, it's a matter of seconds before they're in the bedroom.
'And I'm scared; I'm terrified and I get my firearm and I say to Reeva, I said, 'call the police and get down on the floor. Call the police and get down on the floor'. But I'm still whispering at this stage.
The first thing was thinking that I need to grab my firearm
'Basically on one of my hands, both my stumps and pointing the firearm. So I'm low down and I'm starting to shake and sweating and become.. Overcome with fear.

'And at that point I just entered into the passage and I start shouting and I start screaming get the f**k out of my house. Get out of my house. And I start screaming. And the more I start screaming the more scared I'm actually getting. The more like… the more, the more real this is feeling.'
At this point, he claims, he heard the toilet door slam and believed there was someone 'right here, round this corner'.
'I don't have time to get my legs back on, these people are definitely in the house already, if they come at me quick enough and they grab the gun or if I hesitate, they can use the gun on, on, on either of us.
He said he shouted out 'Reeva call the police' in a bid to 'intimidate this person, to get out of the house'.
'I'm petrified at this point I don't want to stick my arm out if they can grab my arm, I just don't have the balance to align the firearm,' he said.
'At this point I see the windows open. These things are running through my head…the window has just been opened, the door has just slammed. It's the middle of the night. Reeva is right next to me in bed.
'I've got to stand there until we get help; until somebody comes, because I can't go back to Reeva and then expose her and expose myself. I'm hiding behind the toilet entrance wall. I can see the toilet door - I don't know if it's one person. All I know is there's somebody in my house. And all of a sudden I hear a noise, at the toilet. I presumed it was the toilet door opening and before I knew it I'd fired four shots.'
He said the echo from the gun shot in the bathroom was 'so loud' that he couldn't hear anything and that he was shouting for Ms Steenkamp to call the police and for her to get out of the house.
At that point, he claims, he walked back to his bed but could not find his girlfriend.
'I get down to the floor and I can't feel her,' he said. 'So I start pulling everything apart and I start saying like, 'Reeva, Reeva Reeva' and I'm like pulling my hand and I'm on my stumps now still, I was like pulling my hand across the curtain.
'Thinking like "Lord please tell me she's hiding behind the curtains". And I get to the end of the curtains and my heart just sinks.
'I'm still scared that there's an intruder in the house but I'm now mixed with another fear. So I rush on my stumps back as quick as I can to the bathroom, and I've still got the firearm pointed at the door. It's locked. And I realise there is somebody inside there and they're not answering me.'
He said it was at this point that he became concerned it was Ms Steenkamp in the bathroom and started trying to force open the door.
Pistorius claims he went to fix his prosthetic legs on before returning in a bid to force his way in.
'I'm screaming now for Reeva and just start screaming "Jesus please god, please please please please please just don't let this be what I think it is".
'I need to get in this toilet to see if it's Re. And if she's not answering why isn't she answering me, is she scared? Is she ok? So I ran back to the room down the passage to get the cricket bat and I start smashing down this door. I reach into the door to open the lock from the inside and I realise the key isn't there. And I punch, I take one of the planks that's now lose and I rip it out and then I can see Reeva is on the floor.'

John mcgowan said...

Starting to sob, Pistorius added: 'I opened the toilet door and immediately when I saw Reeva she was over the toilet. She's.. she'd slumped over the toilet. And I... at that point I knew that I'd killed her. I knew that she was dead. And I went down on my knees and pulled her onto me.'
He said he put her on the bathroom floor and then rested her head on a towel.
'I just see blood and it's just blood everywhere. It's just blood everywhere... So much blood. And I don't know what to do. I try and pick her up. I'm trying to pick her up but there's so much blood I can't stand up.
'And I thought Reeva had started breathing, so I had my fingers in her mouth and I was trying to give her mouth to mouth, but there was so much blood.'
Later in the interview, he revealed how mutual friends 'don't speak to me any more' but that he sees 'the pain it's caused (Ms Steenkamp's) family and I don't blame them.'
Attempting to describe how the situation arose, he added: 'Reeva must have just gone to the bathroom. To relieve herself. And when I started shouting.. she must have thought there was somebody coming in the passage off the balcony.
'So she got scared and she closed the bathroom door and yet I'm thinking this is a confirmation of there being somebody in the bathroom. She just hears me shouting and me coming closer and closer to the bathroom;
'I don't know, you can ask yourself a million times, why, why didn't I just close the door before I went to bed? Why didn't Reeva close the door? Why when she got up to go to the toilet just tell me?
'Why didn't she shout at me from the toilet and all these things. I can't say, why did she do them, she didn't do anything wrong. But it's difficult. It's difficult to know if one of those small things didn't happen that the situation would be different. And I would still have her here with me.'
He said that what he had done was 'terrible' adding: 'At times I don't feel like I should have the right to live for taking somebody else's life.'
'What is difficult is dealing with this charge of murder,' he said.
'The day before we started the trial on March 2 2014 I sat with my lawyers and I said to the, whatever happens I will spend – the maximum for culpable homicide is 10 years – I said to them, "I will spend 10 years in jail for taking Reeva's life, for culpable homicide but I won't spend a day in jail for murdering anyone".
'I don't want to go back to jail; I don't want to have to waste my life sitting there. If I was afforded the opportunity of redemption I would like to help the less fortunate like I had in my past.
'I would like to believe that if Reeva could look down upon me that she would want me to live that life.'

OT Update:

Statement by Philip R Klein, senior investigator on the DeOrr Kunz Jr. case:

On Sunday, June 19, 2016, investigators with KIC Texas and Investigators from the State of Georgia, Bonneville county sheriffs department, and Lemhi county sheriffs department conducted a 4 day search which included areas in and around the city of Leadore and the Timber Creek Campground.

Investigators did recover evidence related to the DeOrr Kunz Jr. case.

On June 22, 2016, investigators, including a cadaver dog, arrived in the city of Idaho Falls, Idaho and conducted searches of two homes. At one home, evidence was collected and taken into custody. At the second location, no evidence was found or established.

Investigators would like to make it clear that the cadaver dog has cleared the residence owned by Jeremy and Trina Clegg. Their vehicles and all surrounding buildings have been cleared.

We would like the public to know that the Cleggs cooperated 100% and we thank them for that.

Based upon all search efforts and strong evidence collected over the last 5 days at multiple locations, intentional homicide HAS NOW NOT been ruled out.

We would like to thank the citizens of Leadore in the search of their city and surrounding areas and Isaac Reinwand for his full and complete cooperation with investigators.

Why didn't Reeva close the door? Why when she got up to go to the toilet just tell me?
'Why didn't she shout at me from the toilet and all these things. I can't say, why did she do them, she didn't do anything wrong. But it's difficult. It's difficult to know if one of those small things didn't happen that the situation would be different.

I was reading this as shifting blame, then he said, "why did she do them" (shout at him from the toilet). This part of his statement reads like they were fighting. As does this:

"I just entered into the passage and I start shouting and I start screaming get the f**k out of my house. Get out of my house. And I start screaming. And the more I start screaming the more scared I'm actually getting. The more like… the more, the more real this is feeling.'"

______

Something else I noticed, he talks about himself being "limited" when he's talking about the most violent part of the night. He's making his stumps the subject, instead of he murdering Reeve. He's using his stumps to conceal his action and his rage.

'Basically on one of my hands, both my stumps and pointing the firearm. So I'm low down and I'm starting to shake and sweating and become.. Overcome with fear.

Reeva, Reeva Reeva' and I'm like pulling my hand and I'm on my stumps now still, I was like pulling my hand across the curtain.
'Thinking like "Lord please tell me she's hiding behind the curtains". And I get to the end of the curtains and my heart just sinks.

'I'm still scared that there's an intruder in the house but I'm now mixed with another fear. So I rush on my stumps back as quick as I can to the bathroom, and I've still got the firearm pointed at the door. It's locked. And I realise there is somebody inside there and they're not answering me.'

Off topic BBM

The Baltimore police officer facing the most serious charges stemming from the death of Freddie Gray has been cleared on all counts.

Officer Caesar Goodson Jr was found not guilty on Thursday of second-degree "depraved heart" murder.

Judge Barry Williams also cleared the officercop on five other counts, including assault, manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.


Ofc Goodson, 46, was the driver of the police transport van where Mr Gray, who was arrested in April 2015 after fleeing police, suffered a spinal injury.

The 25-year-old's death a week later triggered protests and rioting and fuelled a national debate over allegations of police brutality.

Prosecutors alleged that Ofc Goodson gave Mr Gray a "rough ride", and failed to ensure the detainee's safety.

The officer's defence argued that Mr Gray caused his own injuries by falling inside the transport van.

The verdict in Ofc Goodson's case marked the latest defeat for prosecutors who filed charges against six police officers in the wake of the unrest that followed Mr Gray's death.

Officer William Porter's case ended in a mistrial, while Officer Edward Nero was acquitted.

Both Ofc Goodson and Ofc Nero requested non-jury trials, leaving their fates in the hands of Judge Williams.

Ofc Goodson had faced up to 30 years in prison if convicted on the murder charge.

"Depraved heart" is a legal term for an action that demonstrates a "callous disregard for human life" and results in death".

Hi John thanks for the pistorius post.

it is interesting he says this:
I've got to stand there until we get help; until somebody comes, because I can't go back to Reeva and then expose her and expose myself.

Why did he have to stand there?
The person, the alleged intruder is in the toilet which is in the bathroom.

Why didn't he leave the bathroom, closing the door go back to the bedroom and get Reeva and both leave the bedroom?

The alleged intruder is going nowhere except out the same way the allegedly got in.
The alleged intruder will have known his presence had been detected and that it was probable security and the police were on their way and armed.
He is also likely to know that the residents will be armed(given that it is South Africa and people take a dim view of robbers)
Given it is a gated community, the alleged intruder will know there will be panic buttons everywhere and, if their presence will probably have been noted by CCTV even before getting into the building.
Even if they got in they know with panic buttons etc that they have minutes at most before security and police show up armed and dangerous.

His whole story makes no kind of logical sense at all.
Why go towards danger, even if armed and you know where the intruder is, rather than the expected getting your partner and yourself out the bedroom and pressing panic buttons and calling police.

Once out the bedroom they would have been safe.

He did the unexpected since he knew who was in the toilet, he knew she was unarmed, he was raging after they fought, did she say it was all over and she was going to leave him?
Was it if he couldn't have her no one could?
Did she refuse him?

Whatever it was, it was enough to trigger his rage.
Evidence shows she was beaten with the cricket bat and there was also evidence of a pellet wound.
Did he shoot her with an air gun first and then attack her before she escaped to the toilet?
Cricket bat then air gun?

Either way he shot to kill.
He used bullets he knew were designed to cause maximum damage and death.
He broke every rule and law in regard to shooting someone, he had to be able to identify his target, to see them.
He couldn't but fired any way.
He was in an uncontrolled rage.

Our police are faced with too many career, catch & released criminals. Must be very demoralizing. Does anyone think the 'rough ride' wasnt intentional? Its a bad precedent. The courts are responsible for the career criminals victimizing people again & again.

It's scares me to think I may never see my children again for something I didn't do. I love my children more than life itself. They are scared too. They've been crying most of the night worried about what tomorrow could bring. I don't know what to say to them. All I could do was sit with them and pray. After our dinner tonight that's we came home and did. We prayed. All of you praying for us, thank you. We appreciate it more than you will ever know.
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. - James 1:2-4
