Unstructured Podcast – Episode 130 – Jim Clemente is a retired FBI Profiler and now Criminal Minds writer and producer

Jim Clemente is a retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent / Profiler, and former Prosecutor for the New York City Law Department. During his storied 22-year career within the FBI, he investigated cases that ranged from bank robberies to hunting down serial killers. Jim also investigated sex crimes, public corruption, both white collar and violent crimes. During this time working undercover in the FBI he posed as a street beggar and by stark contrast as a broker on Wall Street. His first duty assignment was to the New York Field Division’s Joint FBI/NYPD Sexual Exploitation of Children Task Force. He was then later assigned to the Office of the Independent Counsel in Little Rock and then moved on to the Washington Field Office in 1995.

In 1998, Jim was promoted to SSA and then assigned to the NCAVC. He then went on to become qualified as an expert witness in the areas of child sex offender behavior, child sexual victimization, and child pornography. Clemente was also a member of the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC) Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). This unit is an integral part of the Critical Incident Response Group, which is supposed to provide behavioral support during all FBI crisis incidents.

  1. Watching Criminal Minds, it is clear that it is a Hollywood dramatization of somewhat disturbing actual crimes.

    What bothers me most, when watching some episodes back-to-back is that the FBI actors, in the end, seem to arbitrarily fluctuate between self righteous, justifiable homicide and empathetic remorse after killing the suspect – even though they were all serial killers.

    In your experience, do people in your line of work really distinguish between ‘unfortunate’ serial killers and ‘evil’ serial killers? If so, is it a scientific distinction or just a matter of personal relevance?
