One of the main reasons why a rape or continued rape may go underreported is because of the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator. If the intimacy begins to build with on-going abuse, it can create a bond or a "relationship" between the victim and the perpetrator, sometimes manipulating the victim into believing the sexual assault is normal. When a victim is being abused by a romantic partner, an ex partner or a spouse, it can be viewed as a simple "misunderstanding" between lovers. In fact, according to our text book "Traditionally, marital rape was not considered to be a crime, but recent statutory changes recognize it as a crime, at least under some circumstances." Other reasons for victims to not cooperate or fear to report are as follows: "fear of disbelief from authorities, fearing that without significant injuries that the rape will not be taken seriously, harmful publicity, retribution from the rapist, insensitive treatment by law enforcement and hospital staff, rejection by mate or family, blame for the rape".
If I were in the frightful situation of being sold as a human trafficker, I wouldn’t stand up in fear or retaliation or death I would try to leave hints making eye contact with police, SOs, many women go through these things by the hour, and if caught making attempt to draw attention you were beaten and sold to the slums for sex and abuse. In the leaders shoes he believes its just a way of life rather than its actually ruining someone’s
As far as sexual offending is concerned, schools, hospitals, isolated areas are more prone to the sexual crimes. Police should cover such areas during their patrolling process. Moreover, the implementation of such technology in the crime department will only turn out to be a financial and societal disaster. For this management step, there also would need costly and intelligent infrastructure and managerial practices. In general, efforts for the geomapping of offender residences would go in vain due to crime and criminal uncertainty in any region.
One woman that escaped the Amish community, Mary Byler, explained how throughout her childhood she was sexually abused and raped by multiple men of the community, and worse of all, her older brother. When she reported these crimes to the police these men faced some jail time and community service, and while the rest of the world sees Mary as a victim, her old community considers her the criminal for leaving and reporting these acts (Caroline). While most of the united states would turn their heads at the sight of animal cruelty, the Amish are known to own 20% of puppy mills in the U.S. Due to their belief in the ability to harm or kill what is their property, the Amish are able to avoid animal cruelty laws by claiming puppies as livestock, and thus allowing them to treat them however they please. The puppies in these mills are subjected to horrible living conditions (wire fencing, minimal food, surrounded by waste), and when they are no longer needed for breeding, they are taken out back and slaughtered, often times shot, drowned, or thrown in a woodchipper (Caroline). On a lighter note, but still of dire context, the Amish community in Lancaster, PA have been found to be major contributors to high levels of manure and fertilizer runoff in the Chesapeake Bay.
Ten years have passed since Harold’s wife was murdered and daughter was kidnapped. Harold’s phone rang. He answered “ Is this my daughter Rayne? Who is this?” A strange voice replied “ I have your daughter and she is safe.” Harold jumped in joy and asked “ Where is my daughter?” The strange voice replied “ Harold I am sorry I killed your wife and kidnapped your daughter. I hope you get to the corner store where I killed your wife and kidnapped your daughter as soon as you can so you can be here to see this.” The phone houngan up.
One call could have saved a life Screaming to the top of her lungs, crying in pain, and for help was not enough for bystanders around to call attention to. Bystanders, make a difference in any situation and can help to potentially save a life. Screaming in the middle is not something normal that is heard. In “37 Who Saw Murder Didn’t Call Police” written by Martin Gansberg, the author focused on the death of Kitty Genovese that could have been avoided. The author believes that bystander’s actions were significant because when someone is screaming the first instinct should be to call attention to it, the right thing to do is help, it could have saved Kitty Genovese’s life.
They know at the time of doing the crime that it is wrong and they still go through with they're are doing. If it is a parents problem, then they should have their children taken away from them for not teaching them the right values and not setting a good example. If we start trying our teenagers as adults then in time we will see a decrease in the amount of parents that mistreat their kids. Those parents will have learned that they have to take responsibility, even at a young age for their actions and they will teach their children that. This will cause those teenagers to know what it wrong before they ever have to learn by going to prison.
As a result of my study on gangs, I have discovered that the reasons people join gangs are because they have an addiction to drugs, have uncontrollable emotions, face experiences with failure and have unhealthy relationships. I agree with these causes of why people join gangs and also believe those causes can be prevented. By making good decisions, I believe people would not join a gang. Other people might say that becoming involved with gangs cannot be controlled due to family and ethnic cultures endorsing it, but this is unreasonable because of all the preventions to the causes. The addiction to drugs is a cause of joining gangs, because once a person gets hooked they will take any necessary means to receive these drugs.
4 Criticism and Challenges The first point of criticism against victim participation in restorative justice processes arises from scepticism about an apology to the victim as a way of dealing with criminal matters. The perception sometimes exists as to it simply being a way to get away with the crime.106 Members of the public should thus be educated to understand that restorative justice is more than a mere saying sorry, but in the context of victim offender mediation or family group conferences it rather affords the victim the opportunity to confront the child offender with the real and human cost of his or her criminal actions. Another concern deals with the possible secondary victimisation of the victim in the case where the offender pretends
Many have argued that teens should not be tried as adults because of having an immaturity to them and an underdeveloped brain in which influences the rational thinking of a teen. Although these arguments are very reasonable, to say that teens are not aware of their crimes, would only invalidate their statements. Juveniles are aware of their wrongdoings and they choose to commit foul play on innocent lives. These perpetrators had an intent to kill someone, they did so to feel satisfaction or to perhaps seek approval of someone. Furthermore, if teen killers are tried as adults, they should also be given the opportunity of liberation once they turn of age.
All sex offender are required to wear a satellite monitoring devices to locate their location. It has been establishing by the law that once a sex-offender is release from prison that he or she will have to be monitor for the rest of their lives. However, the sex-offender register is in place for the safety of the offender and the community. Because of the nature of this crime, it is untreatable due to a mindset that only the offender can free themselves from when they allow a therapy to help. I am not concerned with a drug dealer or murder because a drug dealer can not focus themselves upon a person unless that person has a desire for the drug and a murder may have committed their crime in order to protect themselves or they lost themselves
