History has shown that evaluators use their own measures for determining causes of behaviors, and it appears often that no two evaluators reach the same diagnosis and explanation for the same behavior (Court TV, Sanity Hearing for Jeffrey Dahmer; trial of Andrea Yates; trial of the Unabomber, The Menendez Brothers trials, 1993 and 1996). Jeffrey Dahmer's seven evaluators all reached different conclusions as to why Dahmer behaved as he did. Given this serious problem with uniformity of evaluations our science is deemed softer than it need be. Attorneys often shop for evaluators who will support their argument and they don't have a standard by which to measure or question the opposing counsel's expert. Mostly, our failure to standardize evaluations or predict risk is a reflection on the grab bag approach within our profession.
