Jonesboro, AR - Tuesday night ABC aired its new police drama " Blind Justice". The show centers around a New York detective who decides to remain on the job after being blinded by a gunshot wound . Some say this could never happen but, others see things differently.
Could a visually impaired person investigate crimes. Is this show far fetched? Not according to Dr. Jenifer Mason with ASU Disability Services.
"People with disabilities have to find unique ways to do a jobs," said Mason.
That unique way could bring certain details to light that sighted people often overlook. For example a person who's visually impaired usually has very strong listening skills. They could be an asset when it comes to listening to testimony.
