Murder, He Spoke (±x)

Almost a year ago I referred to the BBC’s article entitled “How MI5’s scientists work to identify future terrorists” dated 12 December 2016. Some of the journalist’s material is not correct and his conclusions are a little glib – but overall it gives a basic indication of the concepts.
MI5's behavioural boffins
The security service team delving into the psychology of terror...
Key aspects of this article are, in relation to the Behavioural Science Unit (“BSU”) are:-
“Ever heard of the BSU (behavioural science unit)? No, neither had I, until recently.”
A PSEUDO-EXAMPLE OF THE IGON VALUE PROBLEM. EXPERTS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND THE MATERIAL WELL ENOUGH TO WRITE ABOUT IT FLAWLESSLY. THE JOURNALIST HERE IS ALSO ASSUMING THAT OTHERS ARE IGNORANT BECAUSE HE IS IGNORANT.
“But it turns out that this secretive, specialised unit, embedded within the UK security service, MI5, is absolutely integral to every single terrorist investigation.”
BSU IS NOT ‘ABSOLUTELY INTEGRAL’ BUT IT PROVIDES AN AMAZING ROLE IN PRE-CRIME AND INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS. ONE DAY PERHAPS LIKE THIS:-

Following on from my article about CHIS:- this is Part 2 of the series. 20150923 The Mobitel Experience / Truman Show I now present a few more videos ...
“Their job is to search for signs of behaviour in an individual that indicates they may be considering or preparing a terrorist attack.“
THE ROLE IS MULTI-FACETED AND AS WELL AS LOOKING FOR SPECIFIC BEHAVIOUR IN ONE INDIVIDUAL, THEY ANALYSE DATA FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES TO LOOK FOR SPECIFIC TRAITS ACROSS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN ORDER TO BUILD EXTREMELY DETAILED INDICATORS FOR FUTURE INVESTIGATIONS.
“Their field, not surprisingly, centres around the social sciences, with specialisations in areas such as psychology and criminology.”
“There is also a new term that has crept into the lexicon of counter-terrorism: the dyad.”
NO IT IS NOT THAT NEW ACTUALLY. IT SEEMS TO BE A NEW TERM FOR FRANK GARDNER.

I refer to this article:- which was about MI5's Behavioural Science Unit ("BSU"). As stated many terrorist-type attacks are carried out by a 'couples'...
The Sound of Murder - So Long Farewell
Background I had been the victim of aggravated kidnapped and unlawfully imprisoned on 17 December 2015. All the while Praxy de Saram ("PDS") had been...
“Dyads are thought to be of great concern because their ideas feed off each other, reinforcing their beliefs and lending confidence to their plans.“
THE MORE RELEVANT ASPECT IS THAT IT HAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO GET THE INFORMATION OUT OF THEM DURING AN INVESTIGATION. THEIR FLAWED BELIEFS ARE CONTINUALLY REINFORCED BY EACH OTHER, ACTING AS SYCOPHANTS, WHICH VASTLY INCREASES THEIR CONFIDENCE. THERE IS A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF CO-DEPENDENCY WHICH UNITES THEM.
“That makes them harder for MI5 and the police to detect as they don’t “leak” clues to observers so readily.“
THAT IS NOT QUITE RIGHT. DYADS DO LEAK CLUES, BUT THEY ARE MORE RESILIENT UNDER DIRECT INTERROGATION AND WOULD BE EXTREMELY RELUCTANT TO SQUEAL ON THEIR PARTNER, AS THEY BELIEVE IT WOULD IMPACT UPON THEIR OWN SURVIVAL.
“Terrorists and extremists have a track record of “leaking intent”.”
IT SEEMS THAT TERRORISTS LOVE THE ‘STORY-TELLING’ BEFORE THE ‘EVENT’. IT IS A FEATURE OF NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER. IN ONE SENSE IT IS TO OBTAIN ADULATION BEFORE THE EVENT, A LITTLE LIKE AN EXCITING TRAILER FOR A BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE.
“Often they just cannot resist telling others what they are planning.”
THIS IS NARCISSISTIC SUPPLY AS THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN TELLING A THIRD PARTY ABOUT AN EVENT BEFORE THE EVENT OCCURS. IT CONFIRMS THE NARCISSIST’S POWER AND CONTROL OF THE FUTURE.
IN ANOTHER SENSE THERE IS AN ELEMENT OF REASSURANCE, PLANTING THE SEED, ATTEMPTING TO SEEK VALIDATION. PEOPLE WITH NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER ARE OFTEN SPINELESS COWARDS AND CRAVE THE SENSE OF IMPORTANCE TO BRIGHTEN THEIR OTHERWISE DULL LIVES.
“Examples of this would be the Nice lorry driver who exchanged hundreds of text messages with an associate, and the Brussels bombers who boasted about their attack plans yet nobody took them seriously enough to believe they would go through with them.”
I am writing a new article about ‘Forensic Investigation in Criminal Matters’ and will be referring to this article ‘Murder, He Spoke’ to explain why my investigation of the 12/17 Fraud was conducted in a such an impressive manner, despite I actually being the victim of an Attempted Murder and suffering life-threatening injuries…
