Forensic Logistics Crime Sexier Than It Sounds

Most people will think of logistics as the transportation of freight or trucks. Logistics can be describe as the control movement of resources, goods, and or services. It is the exact choreography of commerce in the 21st Century.

All great businesses are about logistics. Logistics is not genius, inspiration, or flights of skill, cunning, or flight of imagination. Logistics is the ability to build pyramids, land spacecraft on Jupiter, invade whole continents, or paint divine scenes from the rooftops of chapels.

Sistine Chapel Ceiling By Michelangelo Logistics

The transformation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling by Michelangelo is an act of logistics. This is a different way of thinking about that pinnacle of creativity.

McCarthy’s story centres on a trauma victim who suffers from memory loss. This forces him to reconstruct scenes and situations from his past. These elaborate re enact made more authentic with the assistance of a logistic expert.

Logistical in this sense refers to problem solving that incorporates modelling techniques, scheduling algorithms and rules of thumb. It also includes scenario planning and good old-fashioned intuition.

Analysis Of The Logistics Of Crime Is Possible

Logistics is the planning and transportation of goods from one place to another. This sequence of steps involve in the production and distribution a commodity is call a supply chain. Organised criminal activity can also infiltrate legitimate supply chain processes.

This is why I am launching a new sub-discipline called forensic logistics. The term forensic refers to anything that is related to, used in, or relates to courts of law. Forensic science refers to a broad range of scientific knowledge, including medicine, chemistry and biology. It is apply in a context of jurisprudence.

Sociology That Primarily Examines Logistics

Criminology is a subfield of sociology that primarily examines the social theories of criminal behaviour. Its practical use may seem limited at times. This was particularly true when criminology focused too heavily on individual aspects of crime and not just the social levels. In the 1960s, criminalistics establish to counter this. It uses rigorous scientific methods to identify the individual nature of evidence when analysing criminal acts.

One definition of criminalistics was that it involved reasoning backwards when practicing criminal law. A crime is commit. This is a goal that one can use to think in reverse to find the perpetrator.

It is important to identify the sequence of criminal initiation actions that are most effective or the likely “how” factors for the perpetrators.

According To Sherlock Holmes, A Scandal In Bohemia

It is a big mistake to think before you have data. One can easily twist facts to fit theories instead of facts.

Sherlock Holmes refers to the ability to draw general conclusions from specific examples. This is call reasoning from the bottom up. This is call inductive thinking, rather than the more well-known art of deduction.

It could also be refer to as abductive reasoning. This is a method of problem solving where one makes a guess about the most likely hypothesis of an observation.

The How Dun It Approach To Solving Crimes Logistics

Consider the assassination John F. Kennedy. There are many possible explanations of what happened. There are many theories about what happened, but the most probable is that Lee Harvey Oswald was responsible for killing Oswald.

A criminal case can be used as a catalyst for causal theories that are wrapped in narrative. One of these theories could possibly be the truth. Occam’s razor could be a further support. The simplest answer is often correct.

One motivation to add forensic logistics is the practical application of abductive reasoning. This new sub-discipline will help to identify and classify applicable what-if scenarios related to commodity movement. This wisdom will be used to analyze and stop illicit supply chains. It may even design mismanagement strategies to prevent similar crimes in the future.

Forensic Logistics Is A Concept

Forensic logistics is a concept that deals with hypothetical criminal organisations to solve a case. This distinguishes it from forensic science that uses chemistry to analyze empirical evidence. Forensic logistics is concerned with determining the possible outcomes of illicit movement of goods and services.

It is possible that forensic logistics will be primarily focused on the analysis and collection of criminal incident case studies as a developing paradigm. Retrograde analysis would be performed to identify possible planning behaviours in movements patterns during criminal acts.

The goal is not to obsess about whodunit but to provide how dun it options that attempt to unravel the organization of a crime.

Commission Report

The Warren Commission Report, for example, is a classic and contentious forensic document on the Kennedy assassination that could be examined in this manner.

This official document can be compared to Oliver Stone’s 1991 film JFK. It features many conspiracy-based scenarios, but also includes, briefly, the Oswald independent viewpoint.

Although correlation does not necessarily imply causation, a collection of possible scenarios could be a narrative buffet that leads to an acceptable solution. What were the logistics surrounding the Kennedy assassination.
