rather than killing them.

Faltering Common Law Jury System: A Psychological Perspective
A trial by jury is possibly the single most defining feature of the common
law legal system. As a people we hold a trial by jury as the ideal
form of unbiased judicial procedure. However, one should be concerned
with this belief, especially due the the preponderance of experimental
evidence that suggests the jury system is failing in almost every one
of its goals. This review considers evidence that portrays the 'jury
of one peers' as a group that is highly susceptible to stereotypes, manipulation,
and influences, all of which go far beyond the scope of legally relevant
information. by Michael W. Decaire
Profiling In Unsolved Serial Rape Cases
By definition, the serial rapist is a successful criminal because law
enforcement fails to connect his crimes, fails to understand his motives,
and subsequently fails to identify and apprehend him. It has been demonstrated

number of means for keeping his identity unknown, and evading detection
by law enforcement.
