Description

Is police work based on predictive analytics consistent with Jewish ethics and the approach of judging people באשר הוא שם, as they are now? Does reliance on predictive algorithms violate prohibitions against use of omens, or lead people away from faith in Gd? Geared toward an audience including people without strong background in Torah text study.
