Criminologists should be able to testify

I don’t know if this is a starter, but perhaps criminologists should be allowed to testify in criminal trials.

They could reference crime statistics, precedents.

They could discuss motives, and whether odd behaviour under stress indicates guilt.

They could talk about how it’s impossible to tell whether someone is lying by their demeanour.

etc.

Just random thoughts I had while cycling today.
