…because that is the only type who has a chance of getting away with it today. One can tell what works best by what the system damns the most.
The highest compliment a cop can give a criminal is that he is a coward. That means he is difficult to catch, he has never been scene, and he leaves very little evidence.
The “cold and calculating” part refers to the suspect being organized and thorough in his preparations. The police don’t like that, because he hasn’t left alot of leads to be pursued. They’d prefer an over-emotional, disorganized suspect who leaves messy crime scenes.
People who work in groups today usually get caught. Often this is true even if one works with family. It is hard to keep a secret for a long time. The more people in the group, the more information gets strewn all over the place, making it more difficult to control.
Control is very important for the criminal. He want to limit the number of ways he can be caught. Any evidence he leaves should be contaminated. He increases TTD or time to discovery so witness recollections are abscent or worthless.
“Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
The meaning of this phrase is that the best way to get revenge is through deliberate planning. Emotional outbursts fail. One gets away with it by thinking. And the more thought that goes into it, the less risk.
The American police state is real. Despite this, the homicide clearance rate average is only 66%. 33% go unsolved. That’s 66% today – with DNA, LPR, FRS, CCTVs, modern forensics and the snitch culture. The loss in human quality has been terrific. If the police didn’t have technology, they’d be screwed.
