I do find it troublesome that she refers to targets of an investigation as "bad guys", and the investigators as "good guys"... This is a gross oversimplification and a nod towards dehumanization, as no human is either 100% good or 100% bad. Using this terminology also potentially corrupts the quality of the investigation: the purpose of doing an investigation is to determine *whether* an individual has violated the law. Calling them "bad guys" before the investigation has even started encourages confirmation bias at every step of the process.
Miss Candace is so awesome. Her stories about the early days of women working in the FBI are so cool, and seem to be positive for the most part. I love the idea of a nurse working her shifts and being recruited by the FBI.
