Impact of the supernatural

ON CRIME

Though exceedingly rare, because of free will, crime can be committed. Violent crimes (such as murder) always end with the victim resurrected and the perpetrator facing possible extinction. Breaking and entering is supernaturally impossible, making the individual’s home inviolate so theft can only occur when someone invited in steals from his or her host. The theft is immediately and supernaturally known. Items stolen are returned to the owner. As a journalist, you are free to react to this, i.e. why would a criminal be resurrected, and what should be the response.

 ON NATURAL DISASTERS

There are thunderstorms, cold snaps and heat waves, snow and hail. Natural disasters should not happen and would reflect a societal problem. As a journalist, you are free to react to this, i.e. why would a natural disaster happen and what are the implications.

PRIVACY

Though a Zoë can move through a locked door, individuals retain the right of privacy not only in their homes but in their persons. Zoës cannot read minds. As a journalist, you are free to react to this. Journalists who refuse to accept the supernatural would need to formulate an alternative hypothesis.
