Right, I'll wait while you demonstrate this "certain degree" as a standard by which any given person can be judged. How is grief quantified and calculated? I'm sure you have a peer-reviewed methodology ready to share.
If you need me to be even more condescending, I think I might be able to muster it.

Whatthe frick are you talking about? I wasnt talking about the specific case in the op i was talking about in general.
Its essentially emotional profiling. Its an investigative technique taught to police the world over. The fbi has seminars on it.
I tell you this as a retired mp who was trained d in exactly this . Its one of the techniques the secret sevice uses to protect the president. Actually they are quite spectacular at knowing how the human body reacts when a person is lying.
It iant a gut feeling. Its a science of understanding that as different as each human is in many ways, in many others we are all alike ie we basically react the same under certain conditions.
