- Who knew it could be possible to be payed to stay out of prison. The age old saying that crime doesn’t pay could prove to be true in an ironic way, pending a bill being passed by the D.C. Council. According to McDermott (2016), “the D.C. Council gave preliminary approval Tuesday to an anti-crime bill that includes a provision that would pay residents who might commit or become the victims of violent crime to stay out of trouble.” My stance on the proposed anti crime bill is clear. I am whole heartedly for the concept of paying potential criminals to stay crime free....   [tags: Crime, Violent crime, Criminology]

Should Rape Victims Be Held Responsible For Their Tragedies?

The topic of rape has become one of society’s most controversial moral issues due to the endless debate of who should take more responsibility – men or women (offender or victim). Although it seems that men and women are both capable of committing this ugly action, majority of the victims have been women, which turns this social issue into more of a gender inequality debate as opposed to simply a moral conflict....   [tags: Rape, Abuse, Sexual assault, Sexual intercourse]

Why Is A Convicted Murder Has Chosen The Victims That They Have?

- In the world of novels, often the view afforded to the observer is one of omniscience. This is not so in reality. What the observers knows in reality is only what is visible or in the mind of the observers themselves, a limited data set as we cannot see everything around us. Let us say that we wish to know why a convicted murder has chosen the victims that they have. In a novel we might be given a soliloquy, experiencing the process as the murderer does. We cannot do so in reality.

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.
