Quote by Andre Braugher
Cops and robbers resemble each other, so there's not a lot to learn in terms of learning the logistics of committing the crime or investigating the crime.
This quote suggests that the roles of cops and robbers are not so different from each other. It implies that there isn't much to learn on either side when it comes to understanding the mechanics of committing a crime or investigating it. In other words, the tactics and strategies employed by both sides may appear similar or interchangeable, implying that one can gain insights into the mindset and methods of each role by studying the other.
The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work.
