I remember a thread here on ATS a few years back stating that Banksy may have been arrested and later identified as Paul Williams. It ended up not being him. I found this article this morning to be pretty interesting. A group of scientists claim to have narrowed it down to one "prominent candidate" by using Geographic Profiling. It goes on to say that this technique could be used to stop terrorists before they strike.

Could have saved them alot of time and energy... i just googled who is Banksy and got the same name on the first line..

Which is the same person reported to be Banksy for years.

I would prefer it if he remained anonymous, so I think the researchers should not have made the name public.

But t's interesting that the profiling has come up with the same name that cropped up a few years back.

The article also suggests that profiling could be used in finding terror cells before they commit an act of terrorism.

Yeah I kinda thought the same thing. Just thought the fact that the profiling led to the same name was kinda interesting.

Yippie ,was about time for a Thought-Police in Majority Report style.
Sure that all is only for our security, against that famous "terror", that almost doesn´t happen where BigBrother is growing, in the western nations. Problem is, it is not BigBrother that prevents us from those 24/7/365-to-be-afraid-of-terror attacks, but will help to grow new terrorists in near future, homegrown, not islamist terrorists.

Problem with that is that future terrorists now know about it, so will take action to prevent it.

After the end of the Dismaland exhibition setup by Banksy in Weston-Super-Mare in the UK last year a few of us made it to the after party and yes Banksy was there in person.
