John from Brooklyn does sound a little bitter doesn't he? I would be a little bitter too if instead of traveling around the world helping to solve cold cases that I was just traveling thru the 5 burroughs in probably the most corrupt city there is. This society has more experience and knowledge then you will ever have John. You really shudder John? really? Loser go back to Crooklyn

Sorry John but there is nothing bozo about this Society. Some of the top investigators in the world are involved and they have helped a lot of people. You sound angry because you never made it far in the field of forensics. Don't judge until you have seen them in action.

I'm a former private investigator, & current Fraud Investigator for the city of new york. These bozos sound like they have just enough knowleged to be dangerous. I shudder to think about the innocents that may be languishing in jail because of the interference of their snap judgments.

Sounds interesting, but you lost me at "and even psychics." There has never been a documented case of a psychic actually solving or being in any way helpful to the police in a criminal case. That's pure mythology.

Some people have described the CBS show The Mentalist as Holmesian. Now there is talk of introducing supernatural elements into the show, for example a real psychic who can commune with the dead. What do you think of this?
