These sad criminal acts will continue to grow in our society, unless our community takes action to stop these crimes. First of all the most important tool we have available against t...
  • Victims From Serious Crimes
    829 words
    Reading the violence analysis of the 1998 NIBRS data was very interesting and scary at the same time. The numbers that are in the different tables represent victims from serious crimes to not so serious crimes.

The overall violence report for the NIBRS was that of simple assault. Each year we as taxpayers pay millions of dollars for counseli...

  • Defined Level To The Punishment
    407 words
    Comp/2nd 1/14/97 The Caning Punishment Issue Reintroducing corporeal punishment would lower the crime rate and give some justice to the victims. There should be a defined level to the punishment and to which crimes it should be dealt. Establishing such laws should also take in to account the growing crime rate and the need to solve this problem. America broke free from the rule of England because of the injustices they believed were being done to them. One of the things the Americans wanted to b...

  • Robert Elias Feelings On Victim's Rights
    729 words
    Robert Elias' book, 'Victims Still'; , presents a very controversial stance that the victims' movement is, perhaps, not at all. Elias suggests that all the programs, laws, and institutions that have been created in the 1980's and 1990's have done absolutely nothing to help the victim. Elias also offers explanations as to how the victims' movement doesn't help victims, what the real causes of crime are, and how crime should be controlled. The victims' movement that sprung up during the 1980's and...
  • System Rape Victims Face
    4,149 words
    STo Report or Not to Report, That is the Question: a Case Study on Rape Victims Introduction Concerning philosophies of morality, rape is no doubt abhorred. However, what is debatable is whether or not it is one's duty to ensure that a rape is reported. In a particular case, one hotline operator finds herself in a dilemma that challenges her duties as a licensed social worker, with the obligation of ensuring that victims report their rape. As a part of the twenty-four-hour hotline staff at a loc...
  • Victims Of Mobile Phone Robbery
    1,053 words
    In this question there are several points to consider. Firstly there is the opening sentence. Does it mean that we are either not catching villains, or when they are being caught, the judiciary are not imposing custodial sentences and therefore they are back on the streets committing more and more crime. When dissected and taken apart the gripping headline that appeared in the Daily Express means nothing of the sort. It is merely an eye catcher that will draw people's attention to the article. W...
  • Evidence Of Sexual Assault
    824 words
    Paradise Lost: an Essay Upon viewing the documentary, "Paradise Lost", one of my first impressions was a feeling of shock at the hysteria surrounding the case, and how heavily it impacted the trial.

The entire essence of the prosecution's case was a confession of questionable authenticity by Jessie Misskelley, Jr, coupled with a community-based fear of a satanic ritual having occurred....

The Parliament of South Australia has legislated to confer rights on victims. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Act, and provisions in the Crimina...
  • Victim Empathy Classes For Offenders And Community
    1,016 words
    The American justice system has viewed criminal behavior as a crime against "the state", leaving crime victims with no input into the legal process of the administration of justice in today's courts.

    Do Victim's Need More Rights? When I was a child my best friend, Rosie, and I would play at each other's houses and we would walk each other half way home at the end of each day.
