There exist few formal models of how profiling works, why it works or, indeed, if it works. Thus a framework, in which we can evaluate the justification for any given claim, allows us to identify weaknesses in those claims. It allows us to establish the certainty of the claim (modality), the conditions where the claim must be re-evaluated (rebuttal), the grounds upon which the claim is made and the warrant and backing for those grounds.
