Computer Modeling To Predict Crime

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*Editor’s Note*Evidently man doesn’t think himself intelligent enough to realize in areas where crime is rampant, crime will persist. Instead, police departments are beginning to further fall down on the job by relying on computer modeling in hopes of stopping a crime before it happens. What possibly could go wrong?

Anyone familiar with computer modeling knows that, not only is it unreliable, but it is inaccurate and established for a free ride toward fraud and corruption, where money is the reward. Two quick examples that should be quite visible to people are, climate modeling and wildlife management modeling. If we examine the predictions created through computer modeling for climate change, most of the United States would be threatened by shoreline flooding, drought, weather disasters, etc. Nothing has happened out of the ordinary but that doesn’t stop the useless relying on computer modeling to continue cash flows. The same can be said of wildlife management modeling. Without stepping a foot in the field, so-called “wildlife biologists” readily predict doom and gloom to the many species of concern, and yet none of the predictions hold any water. Again, this doesn’t stop the fraud associated with it – of course driven by money.

We see from the article linked to below, police think computer modeling will “predict” where the next act of crime will take place. Last time I checked, the crime occurs in places where the crime has always occurred. Somethings never change. Or is the “computer modeling” the scapegoat for 1.) failure to do your job, or 2.) an excuse for racial profiling?

Whatever the reasons, the implementation of computer modeling to predict crime is, not only a waste of tax dollars but just another system to perpetuate government fraud and corruption, while at the same time labeling them “heroes.”

“Predictive policing” represents a paradigm shift that is sweeping police departments across the country. Law enforcement agencies are increasingly trying to forecast where and when crime will occur, or who might be a perpetrator or a victim, using software that relies on algorithms, the same math Amazon uses to recommend books.<<<Read More>>>
