I am completely fascinated by the fact that the police force hires blind people for wiretapping. It is amazing that although blind people have a lost sense they are still being offered jobs and can do them better than people that are fortunate enough to have that sense. One of my childhood best friends is blind and I always thought to myself wow I would be hopeless without being able to see and I probably wouldn't be able to get into the career I want because people hiring might have a bias against being blind. When I read this chapter it really made my whole perception change. I am really intrigued by blind people being able to detect criminals without even knowing what they look like. Also another thing I found fascinating was that you can detect a criminals gender by footsteps. That is absolutely amazing!
