The Forecaster for April 26, 2016

Our speaker on 26 April was Tom Neer, a retired FBI profiler. He told us some of the ways a profiler works to peel back, layer by layer, a criminal’s thinking about his crime. All of the audience was very interested in what he had to tell us after many hours of watching TV law and order shows that often touched on what a profiler did or did not do. Tom explained how profiling has become somewhat specialized and generally breaks down into three general categories: terrorism, child related, and serial murder. Some of his most interesting discussion was his retelling of some of the cases he’d worked over the years. We had a very active Q&A session including some words about his visits to Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Earlier we’d heard from Amanda Eisenhour who is the high school student we’re sponsoring for a Rotary International Short Term Youth Exchange to Colombia this summer. Our Mission Minute presentation was by Giselle Pelaes from the Center for Alexandria’s Children.
