Are these supposed to be true stories or something?

From what I have read, they are true.
I had heard of this before, this is the first time I saw a show about it.

Summary:

It's a show about psychics who help the police solve crimes. Their success rate is no better than cops alone, otherwise private investigators would be scrambling to hire psychics in order to get a leg up on their competition and get rich.

The show mostly revolves around expressions of astonishment that the psychics could name facts about the case they couldn't possibley know, even though those facts are all available in any public library's newspaper microfilm section.  :thumbdown:

2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Crime solving psychics are a myth. I read an aticle a while back about psychics being instrumental in the solution to crimes and found that according to the FBI they had employed psychics on several hundred occasions, but had never had a psychic give information that solved a crime. Mostly they just give general information like "it is near water" or "I see trees nearby". Usually similarities are only noted after the crime is solved by other means. I will try to find the link.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda
