Exploring Why a Large Number of Crimes Aren't Reported For a large number of crimes that are committed, the biggest percentage of them is not reported to the police or authorities. This could be due to several reasons. Fear ==== Victims might be afraid of the offenders and the consequence if they report the crime/s. An example is if a woman was being beaten up by her husband.

Basically what it is, is that the abuser doesn’t harm the victim physically but mentally harming the victim thru the head threatening them but in order for one to believe so they must first do physical damage to convince them that they aren't playing any games and they are serious. For example the abuser can humiliate the victim privately or publicly, controls what the victim can and cannot do, isolating the victim from friends and family causing the victim to have no help from no one, and making the victim have low self esteem.

We have a cultural prohibition about speaking ill of the dead. Because of this prohibition, the survivor may find no opportunity to talk about the different aspects of her experience because only the positive aspects are acceptable.

Paying for psychologist for things like trauma or emotional damages after a crime has been committed has quite a price. Even though it would be advised that all victims obtain this treatment, due to its cost or skepticalness, people fail to get or maintain their full treatment. Crime also causes fear.

Some studies showed a positive correlation between the violent threats towards victims and their decision not to pursue charges or any other mediation (Artz, 2011). In other words, threatened violence by the offender directed towards the victim was a reason behind the victim failing to cooperate. Artz (2011) further notes studies performed in the 1990’s showed women may not follow through with the process due to the criminal justice process itself. The process is very time consuming and with multiple court dates, taking off work and finding adequate childcare can create issues (Artz, 2011, p. 8). These studies also found the problems that can occur with the service of protection orders, misunderstanding of the criminal justice system itself, and once again, being afraid of the offender, will serve as a determining factor in a victims’ willingness to cooperate with further court proceedings.
