Headline

Criminologists identify range of 'red flags' for killer nurses

Comment

Richard Gill has already pointed out, that these 'flags' are exactly that: they are things which might imply that something suspicious is going on - that isn't the same as evidence. The failure to see the distinction between 'flags' and evidence, is widespread and very problematic - the tendency to resort to accusing the most 'apparently likely' person of a known crime, with no direct evidence, when no direct evidence has come to light, is both common and not very satisfactory. But although 'very subjective' [and to an extent unsatisfactory, therefore] I see a lot of 'virtue' in: '... and whether they made colleagues feel anxious' as a flag.
