There was next to nothing in the Lerner article by way of discussing the claimed "counter-revolution in the cognitive sciences".

The Lerner article simply traces the Terry v. Ohio case law, describes the general problem of unsubstantiable police hunches, and the big solution? Hire "good" police officers as opposed to bad ones.

I destroyed this article in my blog Robosoldiers, the post is:

BTW, I e-mailed Lerner's colleague, Todd Zywicki, who wrote in the Volokh Conspiracy blog that Lerner's article was "brilliant". That was a case of one law professor selling the efforts of a colleague at the same law school, a Mutual Admiration Society as it were. I commented on Volokh that Einstein's E=mc(squared) was "brilliant", whereas a book report is not.
