Changing the linguistics of crime

Listening to Ms. Richards analysis of criminal behaviour is like being given a key into a secret chamber you didn’t know existed. The guests are well chosen and the subject matter is meaningful and handled with grace and honour. Her voice is modulated and firm, and there’s kindness and compassion for victims and families. She pushes through difficult material and relays it to listeners.

The deep and thoughtful process of how Richard’s mind processes data is remarkable. She also reminds us all to trust our gut instinct and explains the biology of the sensory system in our body and why we should pay attention to it. For many years I’ve said women are raised to be polite—I was awed when I heard her say it as well.

I was a long time listener to the podcast Richard’s does with Jim Clemente, Real Crime Profile. I tweeted once wishing she had her own podcast because it would be excellent. I guess it’s worked out and it is even better than I expected. Better because she created the platform to change the linguistics of crime.

Richards is talking about the prevalence of violent crime toward women. And she also works for the greater good regarding law in the U.K. and other countries. She is tireless it seems.

Jane Austen wrote this over 200 years ago…“Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands.” Anne Elliott in Persuasion. It’s time for women hold the pen to tell the story and Richards is definitely making this happen.
