Ask HN: Why are police allowed to work with psychics in their investigations?

Here’s one theory: Psychic ability was researched heavily in the 1960s. It’s possible that some people who were heavily involved in psychic research then and after hold great power in key places, and would prefer government policy not further normalize the discrediting of their former work..?

If psychic power really was real and useful, I’d be tempted to actively discredit its existence and exploit its power to finally achieve world domination. I’d be very happy that psychics were banned from police investigation because it would make my crimes against humanity easier to cover up.
