22 criminal counts have been filed against a man from California

June 25, 2018 | Brainwave Science


Pleasanton police shared a picture of a man that is accused of committing 22 crimes. 35-years-old Daniel Burns from California is suspected in carjacking, robbery, arson and vandalism. Also, according to authorities, the man is an ex-convict and a reputed gang member.

Daniel Burns is accused in a spree on June 15, 2018 that had finished with carjacking with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary, vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. The man stole a car in Placer County and drove to Pleasanton, crashing it into several street signs. Later he abandoned this car and hid a rifle that had been in the auto in some bushes. The police informed that this weapon was found. Later the man broke into a home where he stole clothes, kitchen knives and then set at least one fire inside the house before leaving.

According to official documents, Daniel Burns appeared to be under the influence of drugs during his detention. Also, he told he was on the run from a motorcycle gang that he claimed was out to kill him. As a result, Burns confessed to this crime spree.



In today’s world, the police must be prepared to defend own interests and protect their people. But the case of Daniel Burns shows that authorities must upgrade some of their solutions and technologies in the war against criminals.

Of course, it’s not easy to prevent and reveal criminal’s plans. Besides, the investigative means at local law enforcement’s disposal often limited. The polygraph test or DNA are confined in results and are effective only in limited situations. In this way, it is essential to find a technology that can help to distinguish between the suspect and innocent with high accuracy.



National security is one of the main goals of police activity. iCognative by Brainwave Science was invented to protect the interests of a nation through the power of brainwaves.

iCognative technology can detect specific concealed information stored within the brains of wanted criminals. The technology identifies perpetrators in most of the crimes with its invaluable technique. This revolutionary investigation technology can be successfully applied in solving any crime whether criminal or civil even with a lack of physical evidence.

According to details of Daniel Burns’ case, iCognative can help the police gain more information about his crimes, motives and connections with an illegal criminal organization. In order to do that, a test case needs to be built with the confidential information that is known only to the criminal about the case, used as stimuli for the suspect. The investigative agent will input  such information into the iCognative system.


In this case, we can probably use information known from the media if it is confidential. For example, the date and time  – June 15, 7 AM to 1:30 PM, location – Pleasanton and Fremont; the type of the stolen car – Jeep Cherokee, weapon – a .22 rifle, known members’ names of the criminal organization etc. Such details of the case will be used in the iCognative test in the form of words, phrases, and pictures depending on its available form. The selected case stimuli will be flashed on a special monitor screen for suspect to see. The system collects the brain responses for each stimulus and stores in database. At the end of the test collected brain responses are analyzed by the software that will determine with 99.9% accuracy if the information is present or absent in the brain of the suspect.

By use of iCognative technology public security and law enforcement agencies morale can surely get a boost against criminals like David Burns who single handedly carry out storms of nuisance and crime with “one-man crime wave.” iCognative has the potential to be extremely powerful for local law enforcement. The technology can become a great instrument in a war against criminals and save not only money and time of the police but also their efforts.
