The sign for "suspect" is done by getting a suspicious
look on your face and then scratching the side of your forehead a bit
with with your index finger.
SUSPECT / SUSPICIOUS:
Also see: PARANOID
A student asked me if this sign (above) would be good to use for
the concept of a criminal suspect.
You could use this sign as part of an initial description, something
along the lines of: POLICE SUSPECT INDEX-"him" MAN THIEF.
After that you would simply point in the direction of the identified
suspect (either absent or present). However, it would be
just as effective to use the sign "THINK"
in that sentence. Or use "THINK MAYBE."
