A good idea badly excecuted
4 May 2018 | by rainv-21956See all my reviews

The "facts" she has are nothing more than just what other people has said to the police, she has no evidence on most "facts" she is presenting to the criminal. She constantly looks for excuses to give the criminal a diagnose and instead of trying to find out how the person in question works she tries to just put the criminal in a box using a disorder. She constatly tries to seem super smart saying things like "this person is obviously lying, i knew he wasn't a compulsive liar but right now he definitely is" even though she has no grounds for saying he's lying at all. She's very biased and does not care for what the criminal has to say and only looks at it from an outside perspective.
