getting away with murder

Recommended Posts

You forgot

e) the perpetrator had to leave a hair behind because it's in the script. :)

 

 

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the show, but I don't think of it as a documentary.

Meh, just think of it as if they filter the normal everyday cases in which they get away and the cases where the killer is behind the curtain yelling "there's nobody here but us lamps". And just filter the ones that are interesting, slim chanced, odd and fun.

 

If you followed a true documentary about these things you'll notice they usually get tied because of a hair. Not because they leave one, but because the cases where he drops his card and a bloody fingerprint get cut out.

 

The true documentaries run boring after a few episodes because not that many people BARELY JUST get away with it. The grind down to cases where you probably guess it was the butler.

Many things may leave to your capture.

1. Your car tyre marks, They can compare them the Suspects cars.

2. You may have ripped your clothes, left a footprint, Your DNA in the Form of Spit, From Chewing Gum etc.

3. There may be witnesses that you did not see.

4. CCTV.

Really, 95% of all cases are solved, If you are part of that 5% that get away with your crime, Your lucky.

Real crime solving comes nowhere near 95%. They are not even reported at that rate. 70% is considered high.

 

The San Francisco Police Department solved, on average, just 28 percent of the city's murders, rapes, robberies, shootings, stabbings and other serious assaults between 1996 and 2000, a Chronicle computer analysis shows.

 

"A seven-month Chronicle investigation revealed a department with serious problems in its once vaunted Bureau of Inspectors, which doesn't even investigate nearly 70 percent of the robberies and serious assaults reported in San Francisco." was another quote from the article.

 

95% is a number you only get if you consider cases that do get an investigation, a named suspect, and it's considered "solved" if a person is charged. Should that person be considered innocent, tough. Makes you wonder what that 5% is. People who point at their shooter but they are not convicted?

 

Also note that rates like that are only attained in low-crime areas, where they experience 1200 crimes per year. (90%). Other areas, same country, that are city areas and they have 15.000 crimes per year, efficiency plummets to 70%. Go to larger cities and you get as low as 22% (various countries were included).

 

Try This

 

 

Even though Philippines has a betterrate, estimating overall at 95% is a bit optimistic.
