Effect of closed circuit television on urban violence. (1/616)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of city and town centre closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance on violence in terms of accident and emergency (A&E) department and police assault data. METHODS: A&E department and local police assault data in three centres in Wales (Cardiff, Swansea, and Rhyl) two years before and two years after the installation of CCTV were studied. British Crime Survey and police crime statistics were used as control data. RESULTS: A&E records of 24,442 assault patients and 3228 violent offences recorded by the police were studied. Data from two A&E departments (Swansea (+3%) and Rhyl (+45%)) showed increases in recorded assaults after CCTV installation but a decrease (12%) in the largest centre, Cardiff. There was an overall reduction in town/city centre violence from the A&E department perspective of 1% in the two years after CCTV installation. In contrast, police data demonstrated changes in the opposite direction (-44%, -24%, and +20% respectively) contributing to an overall decrease of 9%. British Crime Survey and police statistics for England and Wales demonstrated no overall change and a 16% increase respectively. CONCLUSIONS: City centre CCTV installation had no obvious influence on levels of assaults recorded in A&E departments. There was a negative relationship between police and A&E recording in all three centres. A&E departments are important and unique sources of information about community violence.  (+info)

Epidemiology of injuries among women after physical assaults: the role of self-protective behaviors. (2/616)

Physical assaults against women result in more than 5,000 deaths and 1 million nonfatal injuries per year in the United States. Data from the National Crime Victimization Survey, 1992-1995, were used to test the association between injury risk and self-protective behaviors, while controlling for victim, offender, and crime-related characteristics. Unlike in prior studies, a self-protective behavior measure that accounted for the temporal sequencing of the occurrence of injuries and self-protective behaviors was used. The study also examined whether the effect of self-protective behaviors varied as a function of victim-offender relationship status. The sample included 3,206 incidents in which females were physically assaulted by a lone male offender within the previous 6 months. Multivariate results revealed that women who used self-protective measures were less likely to be injured than were women who did not use self-protective measures or who did so only after being injured. The effect of self-protective behaviors on risk of injury did not vary as a function of the victim-offender relationship. The inverse association found between self-protective behaviors and injury risk differs from those of previous studies. Owing to inconsistent findings across studies, caution should be used when making recommendations to women regarding whether or not they should use self-protective behaviors during a physical assault.  (+info)

Early behavior problems as a predictor of later peer group victimization: moderators and mediators in the pathways of social risk. (3/616)

This study is a prospective investigation of the predictive association between early behavior problems (internalizing, externalizing, hyperactivity-impulsiveness, immaturity-dependency) and later victimization in the peer group. Teacher ratings of the behavioral adjustment of 389 kindergarten and 1st-grade children (approximate age range of 5 to 6 years-old) were obtained, using standardized behavior problem checklists. These ratings predicted peer nomination scores for victimization, obtained 3 years later, even after the prediction associated with concurrent behavior problems was statistically controlled. Further analyses suggested that the relation between early behavior problems and later victimization is mediated by peer rejection and moderated by children's dyadic friendships. Behavior problems appear to play an important role in determining victimization within the peer group, although the relevant pathways are complex and influenced by other aspects of children's social adjustment.  (+info)

Integrated clinical service for sexual assault victims in a genitourinary setting. (4/616)

BACKGROUND: Reported sexual assault is increasing, and the diverse immediate and longer term needs of the victim are usually met by exposure to a number of healthcare professionals often in different locations, involving delays and travel, increasing the trauma for the victim. OBJECTIVES: To set up a centre to address the immediate and longer term needs of the sexual assault victim and review issues arising during the development of the service. METHODS: Description of setting up the service in the genitourinary medicine department of Kings College Hospital, south London, and the aspects of care offered. RESULTS: The number of victims referred by police increased from 15 in 1992 to 58 in 1996. In 1996, 55 female and three male victims were seen. 23 different police stations brought victims for examination; mean age of the victim was 27 years (range 14-60), median time between assault and examination was 22 hours (range 3 hours-3 months); 23% had genital injuries, 59% had other physical injury, and 11% needed further hospital care. 71% accepted screening for sexually transmitted infection (STI), 21% had an STI diagnosed, 16% of the women required emergency contraception, 26% received prophylactic antibiotics, and 58% saw a health adviser. 70% had a follow up appointment arranged of which 50% attended. CONCLUSION: The high uptake of STI screening, emergency contraception, health adviser consultation, and follow up supports the concept of a comprehensive integrated system to meet the disparate needs of the victim while still obtaining the necessary forensic evidence. The wide catchment area of service users indicates gaps in services available for the assault victim. Earlier genitourinary involvement after sexual assault is becoming increasingly pertinent in relation to HIV prophylaxis.  (+info)

Violence victimization after HIV infection in a US probability sample of adult patients in primary care. (5/616)

OBJECTIVES: This study estimated the proportion of HIV-infected adults who have been assaulted by a partner or someone important to them since their HIV diagnosis and the extent to which they reported HIV-seropositive status as a cause of the violence. METHODS: Study participants were from a nationally representative probability sample of 2864 HIV-infected adults who were receiving medical care and were enrolled in the HIV Costs and Service Utilization Study. All interviews (91% in person, 9% by telephone) were conducted with computer-assisted personal interviewing instruments. Interviews began in January 1996 and ended 15 months later. RESULTS: Overall, 20.5% of the women, 11.5% of the men who reported having sex with men, and 7.5% of the heterosexual men reported physical harm since diagnosis, of whom nearly half reported HIV-seropositive status as a cause of violent episodes. CONCLUSIONS: HIV-related care is an appropriate setting for routine assessment of violence. Programs to cross-train staff in antiviolence agencies and HIV care facilities need to be developed for men and women with HIV infection.  (+info)

Prior interpersonal trauma: the contribution to current PTSD symptoms in female rape victims. (6/616)

The purpose of the current study was to disentangle the relationship of childhood sexual abuse and childhood physical abuse from prior adult sexual and physical victimization in predicting current posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in recent rape victims. The participants were a community sample of 117 adult rape victims assessed within 1 month of a recent index rape for a history of child sexual abuse, child physical abuse, other adult sexual and physical victimization, and current PTSD symptoms. Results from path analyses showed that a history of child sexual abuse seems to increase vulnerability for adult sexual and physical victimization and appears to contribute to current PTSD symptoms within the cumulative context of other adult trauma.  (+info)

Stalking--a contemporary challenge for forensic and clinical psychiatry. (7/616)

BACKGROUND: Stalking is causing pervasive and intense personal suffering and is an area of psychiatry that is currently overlooked. AIMS: To review demographic and clinical characteristics of stalkers as well as the psychological consequences for victims of stalking. METHOD: A Medline and PsycLit search was conducted on stalking, forensic psychiatry, personality disorders, de Clerambault syndrome and erotomania, with respect to the relevance of the articles selected for stalking. RESULTS: Stalkers are best thought of as a heterogeneous group whose behaviour can be motivated by different forms of psychopathology, including psychosis and severe personality disorders. CONCLUSIONS: There is a clear need to arrive at a consensus on a typology of stalkers and associated diagnostic criteria. The effectiveness of psychological and pharmacological treatments have not yet been investigated. Treatment may need to be supplemented with external incentives provided by the legal system.  (+info)

Crack-cocaine users as victims of physical attack. (8/616)

This study evaluates the correlates of physical attack among people who use crack cocaine in Dayton, Ohio. Using a retrospective and prospective natural history design, data from baseline and 1-year follow-up interviews were used to calculate the prevalence of physical attack and the annual rate of physical attack suffered by 440 not-in-treatment crack-cocaine users. Logistic regression was used to determine the correlates of physical attack. The lifetime prevalence of physical attack was 63.0%; the annual rate was 36.8%. At baseline, daily crack users were more likely to report a previous attack since they began using crack (odds ratio [OR], 1.81; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.18-2.77). Longer duration of crack use was also associated with experiencing an attack (OR, 1.09; 95% CI, 1.04-1.14). Between baseline and 12-month follow-up, the odds of men being attacked were significantly less than those for women (OR, 0.48; 95% CI, 0.23-0.99). Physical attack is widespread among crack-cocaine users, and does not vary by ethnicity. Injuries often result in the need for medical care. Over the short term, women are at increased risk. Accessible and effective drug abuse treatment is needed to diminish the harm this population suffers.  (+info)

Individuals with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (SZ) experience more violent victimization and noninterpersonal traumatic experiences than the general population. Earlier studies, however, have generally excluded one or grouped together victimization and trauma experiences into single outcome variables, which may obscure their contributory role to SZ symptoms. This issue is important because there is some evidence that intentionally induced violence produces higher rates of psychopathology than nonintentional traumatic experiences. We examined the independent contribution of both types of victimization experiences on SZ patients symptomatology. We were also interested in determining whether SZ patients pattern of acute symptom presentation could discriminate between SZ patients with and without posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) comorbidity. SZ inpatients (n = 70) were assessed for the presence of comorbid PTSD diagnosis, violent victimization, and noninterpersonal traumatic experiences.
Witnessing victimization in prison is a relatively new area of research. Prison victimization research focuses on direct experiences of victimization and its attending consequences; however, studies have not focused on the vicarious victimization experiences of prisoners. Drawing from the prison victimization, witnessing/exposure to violence, and offender reentry literature, this study will investigate the link between witnessing victimization in prison and individual post-release outcomes. Using multivariate analyses, I examined the extent to which individuals witness victimization in prison and the effects of witnessing victimization on individual post-release outcomes using The Prison Experience and Reentry study, a longitudinal study of 1613 males residing in Ohio halfway houses. The findings suggest that a significant proportion of offenders witness victimization while incarcerated. Furthermore, witnessing victimization, particularly witnessing sexual victimization and stealing, was significantly
MADISON, Wis. - Attorney General Josh Kaul today announced Safe at Home, an address confidentiality program for crime victims, has entered its fourth year and continues to be an important safety planning tool for victims. April 18-24, 2021 is National Crime Victims Rights Week.. Since the program launched four years ago, hundreds of victims of crime-including both children and adults-have used this address confidentiality program to stay safe. And DOJ has helped keep these victims safe while also helping them maintain their ability to vote, buy a home, and go to school, by working closely with local and state officials, said Attorney General Kaul.. Safe at Home is an address confidentiality program for victims of abuse and individuals who fear for their safety. The program offers a legal substitute address that participants may use for all purposes, instead of disclosing their actual address, which provides a measure of security when victims need it most.. The program was created through 2015 ...

METHODS: Secondary analysis of Waves 1 (1994-1995), 2 (1996), and 3 (2001-2002) of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, a nationally representative sample of US high schools and middle schools. Participants were 5681 12- to 18-year-old adolescents who reported heterosexual dating experiences at Wave 2. These participants were followed-up ∼5 years later (Wave 3) when they were aged 18 to 25. Physical and psychological dating violence victimization was assessed at Wave 2. Outcome measures were reported at Wave 3, and included depressive symptomatology, self-esteem, antisocial behaviors, sexual risk behaviors, extreme weight control behaviors, suicidal ideation and attempt, substance use (smoking, heavy episodic drinking, marijuana, other drugs), and adult intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization. Data were analyzed by using multivariate linear and logistic regression models. ...

Four Cambridge university law students have created a free artificial intelligence chatbot using natural language input with the aim of clarifying whether a criminal offence has taken place and making it more likely the police will take victims of crime seriously.. Modelled on the DoNotPay parking ticket app by student Josh Browder, LawBots creators also plan to extend the idea to civil claims.. LawBot currently helps crime victims to report 26 major criminal offences, including sex and property offences and offences against the person. The creators intention is to expand to cover civil law disputes at a later date.. The students - Ludwig Bull, Rebecca Agliolo, Nadia Abdul, and Jozef Maruscak - started six weeks ago to build the chatbot in their own time, without input from the law faculty, aiming to help regular people understand the difficult rules that shape and govern our everyday life..

Population-based survey data from 10 state and nine urban school districts found that an average of 1.8% of high school students identify as transgender. Transgender students were more likely than were cisgender students to report violence victimization, substance use, and suicide risk, and, although generally more likely to report sexual risk behaviors, were also more likely to report having been tested for human immunodeficiency virus.
The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grants provide federal funding enabling local organizations serving survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, trafficking, and other crimes to provide counseling, case management, crisis hotlines, emergency shelters, and community-based programs. The House of Representatives approved H.R. 1652 by a strong bipartisan vote of 384-38 on March 17. It is time for the Senate to enact this bill to fix the VOCA formula.. The Crime Victims Fund was created in 1984 to provide grants to state and local programs that assist victims of crime. The fund is derived entirely from fines and penalties paid by federal criminal offenders, not taxpayer revenues. These funds are the most essential and flexible source of funding for crime victim services across the nation. The proposed VOCA formula fix will allow federal financial penalties from deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements to be deposited into the Crime Victims Fund, rather than the General ...
BACKGROUND: Autoimmune diseases require the involvement and activation of immune cells and occur when the body builds up an immune response against its own tissues. This process takes place due to the inability to distinguish self-antigen from foreign antigen. Systemic autoimmunity represents an important cause of morbidity and mortality in humans. The mechanisms triggering autoimmune responses are complex and involve a network of genetic factors. Genome wide association study (GWAS) is a powerful method, used to identify genetic risk factors in numerous diseases, such as systemic autoimmune diseases. The goal of GWAS is to identify these genetic risk factors in order to make predictions about who is at risk and investigate the biological process of disease susceptibility. There are several valuable mouse models to investigate the underlying mechanisms causing systemic autoimmune diseases in which mercury induced autoimmunity (HgIA) is a well- established and relevant model. HgIA in mice ...
This publication presents results from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) national Crime Victimisation Survey, conducted from July 2009 to June 2010 using the ABS Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS). The survey collected data about victims for a selected range of personal and household offences, whether victims reported these incidents to police, characteristics of victims and characteristics of their most recent incident, and peoples perceptions on social disorder in their local area. This is the second crime victimisation survey conducted by the ABS since it was redesigned in 2008-09. Time series data are included to compare results with the 2008-09 Crime Victimisation Survey ...
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this research was to obtain national estimates of exposure to the full spectrum of the childhood violence, abuse, and crime victimizations relevant to both clinical practice and public-policy approaches to the problem.. METHODS: The study was based on a cross-sectional national telephone survey that involved a target sample of 4549 children aged 0 to 17 years.. RESULTS: A clear majority (60.6%) of the children and youth in this nationally representative sample had experienced at least 1 direct or witnessed victimization in the previous year. Almost half (46.3%) had experienced a physical assault in the study year, 1 in 4 (24.6%) had experienced a property offense, 1 in 10 (10.2%) had experienced a form of child maltreatment, 6.1% had experienced a sexual victimization, and more than 1 in 4 (25.3%) had been a witness to violence or experienced another form of indirect victimization in the year, including 9.8% who had witnessed an intrafamily assault. One in 10 (10.2%) ...
Background: Violence victimization among youth is recognized as a public health problem. The objective was to analyze the risk pattern of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse during the past 12 months by gender, sociodemographic factors, health risk behaviors, and exposure to abuse before the age of 15, among young men and women attending youth health centers in Sweden. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted using a nationally representative sample of youth health centers. A total of 2,250 young women and 920 young men aged 15-23 completed a self-administered questionnaire. Odds ratios (OR) and adjusted odds ratios (AOR) with 95% CI were calculated. Results: A consistent and strong association was noted between exposure to all types of violence during the past year and victimization before the age of 15 for all types of violence for both women and men. The only exceptions were childhood sexual victimization and sexual violence during the past year for men. Younger age was associated ...
From the time a police report is filed, nine, system-based, Crime Victim Advocates are responsible for working on behalf of families/survivors to ensure access to resources - from victim benefits to interpreters to critical services for shelter, transportation, counseling, medical services, and more. This advocacy can typically continue through the filing of criminal charges and the different phases of court proceedings.. Crime Victim Advocates will continue to co-locate within each investigative SPD unit to provide seamless support. One such example is the Elder Crimes Advocate, who works alongside the SPD Detective as they both visit the crime survivors home. The Advocate can provide an early assessment of the crime survivors cognitive functioning and offer a softer tone for the vulnerable adult. Perpetrators of these crimes are often family members or caregivers, creating an immediate care need once the perpetrator is removed from the situation. By being involved in the case from the ...

Many of the same low-income predominantly African American communities have disproportionately experienced both the welcome reduction in inequality for crime victims and the less-welcome rise in inequality due to changes in criminal justice sanctioning. While it is tempting to consider whether these two changes in inequality can be weighed and balanced against each other, it seems to us that this temptation should be resisted on both theoretical and practical grounds. On theoretical grounds, the case for reducing inequality of any type is always rooted in claims about fairness and justice. In some situations, several different claims about inequality can be combined into a single scale-for example, when such claims can be monetized or measured in terms of income. But the inequality of the suffering of crime victims is fundamentally different from the inequality of disproportionate criminal justice sanctioning, and cannot be compared on the same scale. In practical terms, while higher rates of ...

A case-control study design was used to investigate risks of work-related physical assault (PA) associated with a history of violent victimization among educators. A total of 6,469 state-licensed educators (Kindergarten - Grade 12) worked in the previous 12 months and were eligible to participate. Exposure data were collected from cases (reporting a PA event in previous 12 months, n = 290) for the
The authors rely on Tadeusz Tomaszewskis theory of psychological circumstance. The theory distinguishes between normal and difficult circumstances. A persons particular circumstances (for example a crime victims circumstances) may be analyzed objectively and subjectively. The first of these assumes that elements of the situation are described from the outside (independently on the entitys psychological features and his or her experience). The second demands finding the situation from the entitys perspective. Law enforcement personnel should be able to determine a victims subjective psychological circumstances and be able to adjust it to the situation. It allows to reduce a victims resistance against crime reporting and allows the reduction of the impact of victimization and secondary victimization. This approach requires adequately trained stuff ...
The two above quoted relatively young school principals (both in their forties) relocated after being held captive, and their own and loved ones lives were threatened. Another participant decided to move in permanently with her life partner; consequently, she resigned. All the other victims are still teaching at the schools where they were victimised. None of the participants, with the exception of the woman who resigned for personal reasons, left the profession. ETB furthermore led to the disintegration of collegiality, as well as tension between members of staff (participants criticised their colleagues lack of work ethics and flawed disciplinary practices; they also mentioned that they do not get any support from colleagues. Two of the participants mentioned colleagues insinuations that they brought the victimisation on themselves because they were too strict). Victims of ETB thus often feel isolated and unsupported. Theme 3: The influence of ETB on the interaction between the victims ...

Like some other posters, I dont think that Id call this sick business archaic or a hole into a past so distant... As a teenager girl shes in trouble for using what the court considered excessive force against her rapists, more numerous, stronger and male. Thats precisely the sort of arguments that gun control liberals use in this country to justify keeping crime victims disarmed. Shooting someone who has broken into your house or is trying to mug you is, by their lights, using excessive force. We should just call 911, assuming we can, and wait for the police to arrive.

Research evidence on bully-victim problems has accumulated rapidly in recent years. From this, there is little doubt that prolonged involvement in bullying, as a perpetrator, victim, or, not uncommonly, as both a perpetrator and target of bullying, conveys risk for many aspects of development.
The victims are immediately pushed to the ground, the camera keeps fading in and out of black in-between the cutting of throats, with the loud sound of hearts beating in the background. In one of the most inconceivable mass murders ever committed, 19 men are simultaneously beheaded at one time by 19 other men. The camera returns to focus on Jihadi John. Of the four previous videos this is the first time we ever see him actually kill anyone, and it is obvious that he has experience. As he is cutting through the carotid artery the sound of blood hitting the ground is exaggerated adding to the horror. Then the culmination of the ritual killing and the most disturbing act in the entire film occurs when Jihadi John pulls his knife out of the throat of his victim and looks directly at the camera while exposing the partially decapitated neck. The look in Jihadi Johns eyes is chilling; pure, unadulterated feral bloodlust. Then the camera in fast motion displays Jihad John pounce on his victim in a wild ...
New research says that black cardiac arrest victims are more likely to die when theyre treated in hospitals that care for a large black population
Often, decisions to transfuse blood are based upon patients falling into a specific category or protocol. For example, many trauma victims are transfused with one unit of plasma for each unit of red blood cells they receive, and one unit of platelets for every ten units of red blood cells transfused. Coagulation Sciences MCTS™ will determine the optimal blood products and pharmaceuticals to arrest bleeding based upon each patients individual blood clotting profile.. ...
In those days, they hadn t yet dreamed up the cynical measure of deliberately placing the bullet in such a way that the body could stay alive long enough to keep its salable bits fresh for surgical removal. No, they still had a certain level of squeamishness under cuddly little Deng Xiaoping and shot to kill every time. And when an executee failed to cooperate, as Wei FuLiao did, they said Fuck the harvest and put him out of his misery. They cheated the audience out of its spasms of delight by rolling him over and performing their own soldierly style of surgery with their bayonets. Presumably, in this bright new millennium, the recent boom in the market for hearts, brought about in part by the opening of the doors to America, has put paid to that remnant of what we big dumb cowboys used to call compassion and the victims are left alive, even strapped down so their thrashing won t bruise the goods ...
Accountability is one of the key strategies is overcoming a victim mindset. The person playing the victim has to take responsibility for their actions and for their role in the events of their life. When they are accountable for their own feelings, actions, and well-being, they can move forward to bigger and better things, says Nilan. ...
Study Purpose: The central purpose of this investigation was to provide descriptive information about hospitalized crime victims. More specifically, this study had five objectives: (1) To provide an estimate of the number of seriously physically injured crime victims at the Medical University of South Carolina, (2) To develop an information packet for crime victims and families that would inform them about crime victims compensation, social services, and victim assistance agencies/services for which they might qualify, as well as psychological services to be provided by this project, (3) For those individuals who were identified as crime victims, to assess specific information regarding the characteristics of the crime, characteristics of the victims, characteristics of the type and extent of injury, victims knowledge of victim services and the criminal justice system, and psychological symptoms related to the crime, (4) To develop a Model Hospital Victim Assistance Program (MHVAP) to provide ...
The study of peer victimization draws from two major strands of research as identified by Seely, Tombari, Bennett & Dunkle (2009) [2] called the bullying strand and the peer relationship strand. The victimization aspect of the bullying strand focuses on what leads victims to disengage from school and suffer from damaging negative outcomes while others adjust. The peer relationship strand is more quantitatively oriented, studying fundamental factors related to peer victimization and the negative outcomes, paying special attention to what factors mediate the relationship between them. Interest in peer victimization in psychological research has been fairly recent, and therefore it appears that most researchers have drawn from other areas of study and contemporary applied theories to the context of peer victimization. The areas of the bullying strand that specifically pertain to peer victimization are studies of victimization prevalence, victims home environment, and effects of victimization ...
The Nebraska Crime Victims Reparations Act was created in 1979 with the passage of Legislative Bill (LB) 910. The Act provides compensation to innocent victims of a crime for certain expenses related to the criminal act. The Nebraska Crime Victims Reparations (CVR) Program is funded through the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), state general fund appropriations and 5% of inmate wages earned through federally certified correctional industry programs. Nebraska Revised Statutes 81-1801 to 81-1842 and Crime Commission Rules and Regulations Title 80, Chapters 1 - 7 govern the operation of the CVR Program with Crime Commission staff providing administrative support.. The first victim compensation programs were originally established in Great Britain and New Zealand. In the United States, all fifty states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico have Crime Victims Reparations programs. When abroad, American citizens are eligible to apply for victim compensation in the ...
Objectives: This longitudinal study examined the prevalence of womens sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration, the extent to which women experienced both sexual IPV victimization and perpetration, and the overlap between womens experiences of sexual IPV with psychological and physical IPV victimization and perpetration. Methods: Data were collected via self-report survey from 180 women during the first 18 weeks of pregnancy and 122 participants completed follow-up assessments at 6 weeks postpartum. Results: At both time points, the prevalence of sexual IPV victimization and perpetration were similar in this sample. Bidirectional sexual IPV was more common than sexual IPV victimization or perpetration only. Most participants who experienced sexual IPV victimization at baseline and follow-up also experienced psychological or physical IPV victimization. No participants at either time point reported sexual IPV perpetration only, those participants who perpetrated sexual IPV also ...
Even in states with a victims rights constitutional amendment, the overall protection of victims is varied and uneven. In addition, without federal constitutional protection, victims rights are always subject to being automatically trumped by defendants rights. Robert E. Preston, Co-chair, National Victims Constitutional Amendment Network Since 1982, a substantial number of the 68 recommendations in the Presidents Task Force on Victims of Crime Final Report have been enacted and implemented due in a large part to the efforts of crime victims.(1) These accomplishments include the Victims of Crime Act in 1984, the landmark Crime Act of 1994, the countless state statutes that strengthen victims rights and hold offenders accountable to their victims, and the 29 state victims rights constitutional amendments. Each year, hundreds of new victims rights laws and innovative practices are enacted and implemented across the country. Since 1990, after cases of stalking received national attention ...
Study Purpose: This research project was designed as a replication and extension of earlier research on how childhood victimization relates to delinquency, adult criminality, and violent criminal behavior (CHILD ABUSE, NEGLECT, AND VIOLENT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR IN A MIDWEST METROPOLITAN AREA OF THE UNITED STATES, 1967-1988 (ICPSR 9480)). This study had four major goals: (1) to document the prevalence of delinquency, adult criminality, and violence in a new cohort of abused and/or neglected children and matched controls, representing a different geographic area (Northwest), time period (1980s), and ethnic composition (to include Native American youth) as compared to earlier studies, (2) to examine the extent to which there are gender and ethnic differences in the relationship between childhood victimization and crime and violent offending, (3) to determine the extent to which different types of maltreatment (physical and sexual abuse and neglect) are associated with increased risk of subsequent ...
ADVANCE FOR RELEASE AT 5 P.M. EST BJS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1993 202-307-0784 20 YEARS OF MEASURING CRIME SHOWS FEWER OFFENSES OVERALL BUT INCREASED VIOLENCE AGAINST MINORITIES AND THE YOUNG WASHINGTON, D.C. -- After 20 years of asking Americans what their actual experiences with crime have been, the Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) today identified several long-term trends: --Overall, the number of criminal victimizations dropped 6 percent since the annual National Crime Victimization Survey began in 1973. --The steepest declines are in household burglary and theft. --Blacks are substantially more likely to be violent crime victims than are whites. --Young minority males in central cities are violent crime victims at the highest rates the survey ever recorded. The data are from the surveys 20th anniversary report, which noted that more than 4.4 million interviews were conducted from 1973 through last year. While the overall trends are positive, some groups of Americans ...
Physical violence in intimate relationships affects men, women, and families worldwide. Although the body of research examining the experiences of male victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) has grown, there have been few attempts to synthesize, compare, and contrast findings regarding the prevalence of male and female victimization. We examined research published in the last 10 years to summarize the current state of knowledge regarding the prevalence of physical IPV victimization in heterosexual relationships. Our specific aims were to (a) describe the prevalence of physical IPV victimization in industrialized, English-speaking nations; and (b) explore study and sample characteristics that affect prevalence. Literature searches undertaken in three databases (PubMed, PsycINFO, and Web of Science) identified 750 articles published between 2000 and 2010. We included 249 articles that reported 543 rates of physical IPV victimization in our review: 158 articles reported 318 rates for women, 6 ...
Although previous research documents high rates of child abuse, street victimization, and substance use among homeless youth, few studies have investigated these three constructs simultaneously, and thus little is known about how various forms of victimization are uniquely associated with substance use among this population. The purpose of this article is to examine the relationship among child sexual and physical abuse, street victimization, and partner violence with substance use among 172 homeless young adults. Path analysis results revealed that males and those who reported parental drug problems were significantly more likely to have higher rates of substance use. Those who suffered more childhood physical and sexual abuse and those who experienced more types of relationship violence were more likely to report greater frequency of substance use. The intersection of various forms of victimization with substance use may have important implications for service providers working with this population.
Background: Research supports robust associations between childhood bullying victimisation and mental health problems in childhood/adolescence and emerging evidence shows the impact can persist into adulthood. We examined the impact of bullying victimisation on mental health service use from childhood to midlife. Methods: We performed secondary analysis using the National Child Development Study, the 1958 British Birth Cohort study. We conducted analyses on 9,242 participants with complete data on childhood bullying victimisation and service use at midlife. We used multivariable logistic regression models to examine associations between childhood bullying victimisation and mental health service use ages 16, 23, 33, 42 and 50. We estimated incidence and persistence of mental health service use over time to age 50. Results: Compared to participants who were not bullied in childhood, those who were frequently bullied were more likely to use mental health services in childhood and adolescence (OR: ...

by David Finkelhor, Heather A. Turner & Sherry Hamby. This commentary argues that it is time to make bullying less of the central concept in efforts to combat peer victimization.. Bullying has been a pivotal concept in the mobilization of effort in recent years to create safe environments for children. It has highlighted a phenomenon that seems to have universal resonance and is recognized internationally (Jimerson, Swearer, & Espelage, 2010). Prevalence for bullying has been measured in many countries, overall assessed as involving about 10% of the school aged population in its chronic form (Molcho et al., 2009). It is associated with serious outcomes (Klomeck et al., 2009) and is higher among abused children (Mohapatra et al., 2010). Public policy efforts arebeing made in many place to combat its occurrence and its effects (Howlett, 2011; Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, 2011; Salmivalli, Karna, & Poskiparta, 2011).. Much of the early pioneering work on this was done by the Norwegian ...

Child abuse isnt just about black eyes. While physical abuse is shocking due to the marks it leaves, not all signs of child abuse are as obvious. Ignoring childrens needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous situations, exposing them to sexual situations, or making them feel worthless or stupid are also forms of child abuse and neglect-and they can leave deep, lasting scars on kids..

Case Update, August 7, 2020: The Eleventh Circuit Court has granted the request for Courtney Wilds Petition for Rehearing en Banc. This is a significant step forward for victims of Epsteins abuse and NCVLI will be participating as amicus again, fighting for these victims. Stay tuned. On May 12, 2020, the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI) filed as Amicus Curiae (friend of the court) in support of Courtney Wilds Petition for Rehearing En Banc. For more than ten years, Courtney Wild, a survivor, has challenged the non-prosecution plea that essentially gave Jeffrey Epstein and his co-conspirators immunity for his abuse of more than 30 minor victims, including Wild. She has argued that in reaching the agreement, the United States Attorney violated her rights under the federal Crime Victims Rights Act (CVRA) - 18 USC § 3771; specifically her rights to confer and to be treated with fairness. Over the course of the litigation the federal district court agreed that Wilds rights were ...
PHOENIX, AZ (April 23, 2013) - Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery will mark this years observance of National Crime Victims Rights Week by traveling to Washington D.C. to testify in favor of a bi-partisan proposal to add a Victims Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The Dykema team called on its knowledge of the federal crime victim laws specifically the Crime Victims Rights Act and the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act which was accompanied by expert testimony and extensive briefing.
I have to admit that I have a very big problem with tactics like this.. Back in the late 80s, I worked as an ice cream vendor in Michigan (for privacy reasons, I wont get into specifics as to where I live) and I was robbed by a thug who had a pit bull with him. He demanded the money I had and took off with a box of ice cream. During the incident, he threatened to sick his dog on me if I didnt hand my money over. I wasnt going to risk my life over $68 and a box of ice cream so I relented.. His dog was a pit bull and I knew enough about pit bulls to know that you never let them get their teeth into your skin.. I filed a complaint with the police and let them deal with it. They couldnt find anything out about this guy. Few days later, I ran into him again and he took a few dollars from me and more ice cream.. Lets just say that it only took me three days and I had his name, where he lived, who his girlfriend was, his phone number and I gave all of that information to the police. The people ...

The self-report lifetime and childhood victimization to sexual violence may not necessarily higher among older than that among younger females. The current risk of exposure to sexual violence seems to influence the recall of lifetime and childhood victimization to a great extent. In order to make the field aware of this phenomenon, prevalence estimates from all three time frames (lifetime, childhood, and during the past 12 months) should be reported separately by age group ...

Objectives The present study examined factors associated with the emergence and cessation of youth cyberbullying and victimization in Taiwan.
Background. Violence is a global public health problem and violence among youth is a matter of high priority. Adolescence and young adulthood are important periods for the foundation of future health. Youth victimization may have serious health consequences, making it important to address the occurrence and socio-medical context for possible interventions against violence.. Aims. To analyze prevalence, risk patterns and gender differences in emotional, physical, sexual, and multiple-violence victimizations and the associations between violence victimization and sexual ill health, sexual risk behaviors and mental health in Swedish youth.. Methods. A cross sectional study using two samples, a national sample from nine youth health centers in Sweden and a population-based sample from a middle-sized Swedish city. The questionnaire included standardized instruments addressing violence exposure (NorAQ), socio-demographics, mental and sexual ill-health and sexual risk behaviors, alcohol and substance ...
The current research examines how members of groups that have been victimized by ethnopolitical violence cognitively construe their groups experiences, and how these construals - referred to as victim consciousness (VC) - affect intergroup relations. It is proposed and shown in three empirical studies that VC can vary in its focus. On the one hand, some group members may construe their groups experiences narrowly, and perceive their groups victimization as unique (exclusive VC). On the other hand, ingroup victimization may be construed broadly such that outgroups who have been victims of group-based violence are perceived to be similar to the ingroup, and thereby included in a common victimized ingroup (inclusive VC). I propose that these contrasting representations mediate the effect of ingroup victimization on distinct outgroup orientations; specifically, exclusive VC should predict revenge or competitive victimhood, whereas inclusive VC should predict increased prosocial behavior toward victimized
The bully of years gone by, who stole lunch money or taunted kids about their weight, now seems quaint. Todays bully has gone digital and is much more empowered because of it. Cyberbullying is the official name for this brand of teasing, and while it happens across all age groups, professions, and economic barriers, children and young adults are often the most vulnerable targets of cyberbullying. As more people become cyberbullies or their victims, its starting to look like an epidemic.. And of course, no American epidemic would be complete without a celebrity spokeswoman. In this case, we have Monica Lewinsky, who delivered a headline-grabbing TED talk about cyberbullying earlier this year. Lewinskys public embarrassment unfolded at a scope most teenagers dont have to contend with, but humiliation in front of ones peers can feel like the end of the world to the average middle-schooler. Everyone can agree on Lewinskys call for a return to a long-held value of compassion and ...

Dr. Moore, working with young adults who had substance abuse problems with the UW and US Department of Education, realized early in his career that those most prone to relapse had a sexual victimization history from childhood or in the intoxicated party scene. He organized his clinic staff around sensitivity to sexual issues and related problems with intimacy-which continues to the present day; though it is primarily work with adults. This includes membership in the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists-as well as a published researcher, from 1989 to the present, on these topics. Over the past 15 years, his current clinic has a substance use relapse prevention group that addresses relationships in recovery, a specialized group for women who experienced sexual victimization in childhood and individual therapy for both men and women. ...
In this time of fiscal crisis, it is more important than ever to make smart choices when it comes to meeting the needs of our citizens. By repealing the death penalty, New Mexico can now focus resources on the important issue of providing tangible assistance to the families of murder victims.. Additional measures making their way through the legislature will enable New Mexico to use the savings gained from ending the death penalty to provide a reparation award to children of murder victims, provide services and programs to murder victims families, create a murder victim family services fund and require employers to provide leave to crime victims to attend judicial proceedings ...
PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES. The authors have observed a great deal of organizational confusion regarding the actual responsibilities of law enforcement investigators as they approach criminal investigations. Sex crimes are particularly susceptible to disorganization, and the resulting investigative inaction, for three reasons:. 1. Some investigators are often uncomfortable dealing with sex crimes victims because of the intimate nature of the crime or because of their own unresolved personal issues.. 2. Some investigators have been trained inappropriately to think that any contact with a victim may result in changes to their story-so they limit contact with the victim and under document the statements that they are able to get-to preserve any future efforts to arrest or prosecute suspects.. 3. Some investigators have been trained inappropriately to think that physical evidence is their enemy because it might contradict the statements of the victim-therefore they conduct their investigation as ...

The last National Crime and Safety Survey conducted in 1993 found that 2.5% of all persons aged 15 years and over had experienced an assault in the 12 months prior to the survey. This was lower than the rate (3.4%) recorded in 1983. This decrease cannot be taken at face value, however, as changes in survey methods may have accounted for some of the change. Annual crime victims surveys conducted in New South Wales between 1990 and 1996 show that assault rates have fluctuated between 2.1% and 2.8% over the period. Assault rates recorded in 1996 were, nevertheless, higher than those recorded at the beginning of the decade. ...
