Serial killers have been a sociological study for years upon years, trying to find out the psychological and biological aspects behind their outrageous, murderous behavior. When looking into serial killers, the question often occurs as to why these people perform numerous killings of people that they do not know. There is a psychological, biological, and sociological explanation behind it all. In these social studies, scientists break serial killers into multiple categories: they are defined as psychopathic or psychotic, stable or transient, and disorganized or organized. The most important thing to remember about serial killers is that the environment around them is what triggers these behaviors.
The style contained a series of complete and complex sentences that were often repeated throughout the second half of the novel. For example, multiple pages state, “[v]isualize the enemy, the rebels who killed your parents, your family, and those who are responsible for everything that has happened to you.” In the memoir, this line was placed in italics to create a dramatic look for the audience. It needed to be reinforced because it gave a sense of pain, and became important to show the intensity of the army training. People were brainwashed and told to kill everyone and everything.

Domestic terrorism can be defined as violent acts that someone has committed in their own country against their fellow citizens and infrastructures. Some examples of violent acts include violent crimes, (murder, assault, and etc.) property crimes, and public order crimes.
The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.

This displays the criminal world that we live in.
Police brutality can be illustrated in many different ways. The most common type of police brutality is a physical form. Police officers can use guns, pepper spray, and batons in order to intentionally hurt civilians.

The violence is this story is significant to the meaning of the story as a whole because the story starts out with an act of violence, placing the royal family at the funeral of their own king. Suicide, murder, and execution are all forms of violence portrayed in this work. Hamlet himself portrays many different acts of violence in this work such as murder and physical harassment.

This novel is centred in these aspects of violence in which the narrator tries to outline them in different stages of life in the postcolonial society. In this essay I will discuss the connection between these forms of violence and link them to the characters and their encounters in the novel. Coercive violence. In this living time Nigeria is in a state of extreme violence and the illegal taking over of the “Big Men”.
This divide breaks down rational thought and strengthens misunderstanding, fear, and violence that is so prevalent in our institutions and citizens.

There is the historical racism that is ingrained in the country and is in the subconscious of the American
Behind Closed Door: A comparative Analysis of Global Domestic Violence Introduction I. Background Information Domestic violence is a universal phenomenon, with millions of people as victims and perpetrators (. It destroys homes and families. Victimization occurs regardless of race, gender, religion, class, and sexual orientation. The term is often used to refer to violence that occurs between two people in an intimate relationship, but extends to violence against children and the elderly (Valiulis, 2014, p.124).
Throughout the world, violence has occurred in some form in each individual’s life since the beginning of time. Violence is any action, inaction, or structural arrangement that results in physical or nonphysical harm to one or more animals. There are three types of violence to classify the act, which is Institutional, Interpersonal, and Structural. Within each type of violence are specific categories that occur, such as family, religion, educational, corporate, and even economical violence.
The two categories of violence in literature according to Foster are: “specific injury that authors cause characters to visit on one another or themselves, and the narrative violence that causes characters harm in general”. For example, in the Divergent series, more specifically in the first book, there is a war between the Dauntless and the Erudite. This war did not do anything but help Tris (the main character) realize what her position and her role was in her dauntless “community”. An example of narrative violence would be in the book The Longest Ride by Nicolas Sparks. In the book Luke who was a famous bull rider had lost his father at an early age due to bull riding.
Racial impersonation has played a major role in the development of representation in major minority groups, such as Native Americans and Blacks. Author, Jill Lane, writes an article, “Impersonation: Toward a Theory of Black-, Red-, and Yellowface in the Americas,” in which she speaks of the theory of racial impersonation and the way in which it has been played out throughout history. Red face has been primarily demonstrated in the United States and blackface was extremely popular throughout Cuba during the eighteen hundreds. Besides the derogatory act of blackface there are also other forms of discursive violence when it comes to racial impersonation in more modern times, such as a white actor playing the role meant for a person of color.
