This general lack of reaction to his presence lulled Treadwell into thinking that the bears were tolerating it, and then to the ultimately fatal assumption that they were mutual friends....   [tags: foolish, anthropomorphism, danger]

Violent Females and Restorative Justice

- 2. Introduction As of the early 20th century, there has been a rise in violent crime committed by women. This is due to a change in gender roles that result in women having a lack of informal control, giving women the mindset that they are more assertive (Kruttschnitt, et. al, 2008). It has been found that women as a whole are less likely to reoffend after attending a restorative justice conference (Hayes, 2005). Due to the female violent offenders only being a minority offender group (Bonta, et.al, 1995), there are gaps in research in terms of the effectiveness of restorative justice on their recidivism rates (Latimer et.al, 2005)....   [tags: Violence, Women]
