Cloning, killing, and identity. (1/490)

One potentially valuable use of cloning is to provide a source of tissues or organs for transplantation. The most important objection to this use of cloning is that a human clone would be the sort of entity that it would be seriously wrong to kill. I argue that entities of the sort that you and I essentially are do not begin to exist until around the seventh month of fetal gestation. Therefore to kill a clone prior to that would not be to kill someone like you or me but would be only to prevent one of us from existing. And even after one of us begins to exist, the objections to killing it remain comparatively weak until its psychological capacities reach a certain level of maturation. These claims support the permissibility of killing a clone during the early stages of its development in order to use its organs for transplantation.  (+info)

Mental disorder and clinical care in people convicted of homicide: national clinical survey. (2/490)

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the rate of mental disorder in those convicted of homicide and to examine the social and clinical characteristics of those with a history of contact with psychiatric services. DESIGN: National clinical survey. SETTING: England and Wales. SUBJECTS: Eighteen month sample of people convicted of homicide. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Offence related and clinical information collected from psychiatric court reports on people convicted of homicide. Detailed clinical data collected on those with a history of contact with psychiatric services. RESULTS: 718 homicides were reported to the inquiry between April 1996 and November 1997. Of the 500 cases for whom psychiatric reports were retrieved, 220 (44%; 95% confidence interval 40% to 48%) had a lifetime history of mental disorder, while 71 (14%; 11% to 17%) had symptoms of mental illness at the time of the homicide. Of the total sample, 102 (14%; 12% to 17%) were confirmed to have been in contact with mental health services at some time, 58 (8%; 6% to 10%) in the year before the homicide. The commonest diagnosis was personality disorder (20 cases, 22%; 13% to 30%). Alcohol and drug misuse were also common. Only 15 subjects (18%; 10% to 26%) were receiving intensive community care, and 60 (63%; 53% to 73%) were out of contact at the time of the homicide. CONCLUSIONS: There are substantial rates of mental disorder in people convicted of homicide. Most do not have severe mental illness or a history of contact with mental health services. Inquiry findings suggest that preventing loss of contact with services and improving the clinical management of patients with both mental illness and substance misuse may reduce risk, but clinical trials are needed to examine the effectiveness of such interventions.  (+info)

Unnatural sudden infant death. (3/490)

AIM: To identify features to help paediatricians differentiate between natural and unnatural infant deaths. METHOD: Clinical features of 81 children judged by criminal and family courts to have been killed by their parents were studied. Health and social service records, court documents, and records from meetings with parents, relatives, and social workers were studied. RESULTS: Initially, 42 children had been certified as dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and 29 were given another cause of natural death. In 24 families, more than one child died; 58 died before the age of 6 months and most died in the afternoon or evening. Seventy per cent had experienced unexplained illnesses; over half were admitted to hospital within the previous month, and 15 had been discharged within 24 hours of death. The mother, father, or both were responsible for death in 43, five, and two families, respectively. Most homes were disadvantaged--no regular income, receiving income support--and mothers smoked. Half the perpetrators had a history of somatising or factitious disorder. Death was usually by smothering and 43% of children had bruises, petechiae, or blood on the face. CONCLUSIONS: Although certain features are indicative of unnatural infant death, some are also associated with SIDS. Despite the recent reduction in numbers of infants dying suddenly, inadequacies in the assessment of their deaths exist. Until a thorough postmortem examination is combined with evaluation of the history and circumstances of death by an experienced paediatrician, most cases of covert fatal abuse will go undetected. The term SIDS requires revision or abandonment.  (+info)

Injuries in Pakistan: directions for future health policy. (4/490)

Injuries result in major financial and productivity losses to nations while inflicting tremendous personal burden on the injured and their families. Two-thirds of the global deaths from injuries occur in the developing world, consuming substantial health sector resources. Pakistan is a developing country with a population of 136 million and no reported estimate of the national impact of injuries. This study presents a profile of injuries in Pakistan, estimates the impact on the country and recommends strategies to further delineate this important public health problem. A methodical review of published, unpublished and government literature was undertaken and data collected for all types of injuries principally over the 1982-1994 period. Motor vehicle injuries, homicides, assaults, work-related injuries, poisonings and risk factors have been included. Selected epidemiological estimates have been generated and the WHO motorization index has been used to assess road-side accident risk. The lack of reliable data and under-reporting of work-related injuries is revealing. The rising time trend in all injuries, the significant loss of life from injuries and the age of those injured have a critical impact on the national economy and health system. Data on injuries in Pakistan are primarily recorded by police authorities and used for legal purposes. Pakistan must institute an information system to evaluate the true impact of injuries and develop national safety standards. Implementation of such standards is especially important for road traffic safety and occupational health in industrial units within the country.  (+info)

Income inequality and homicide rates in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (5/490)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the effect of income inequality on homicide rates in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. METHODS: We conducted an ecological study at 2 geographical levels, municipalities in the state of Rio de Janeiro and administrative regions in the municipality of Rio de Janeiro. The association between homicide and income inequality was tested by multiple regression procedures, with adjustment for other socioeconomic indicators. RESULTS: For the municipalities of Rio de Janeiro State, no association between homicide and income concentration was found an outcome that can be explained by the municipalities' different degrees of urbanization. However, for the administrative regions in the city of Rio de Janeiro, the 2 income inequality indicators were strongly correlated with the outcome variable (P < .01). Higher homicide rates were found precisely in the sector of the city that has the greatest concentration of slum residents and the highest degree of income inequality. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that social policies specifically aimed at low-income urban youth, particularly programs to reduce the harmful effects of relative deprivation, may have an important impact on the homicide rate.  (+info)

Challenge of Goodness II: new humanitarian technology, developed in croatia and bosnia and Herzegovina in 1991-1995, and applied and evaluated in Kosovo 1999. (6/490)

This paper presents improvements of the humanitarian proposals of the Challenge of Goodness project published earlier (1). In 1999 Kosovo crisis, these proposals were checked in practice. The priority was again on the practical intervention - helping people directly - to prevent, stop, and ease suffering. Kosovo experience also prompted us to modify the concept of the Challenge of Goodness. It should include research and education (1. redefinition of health, 2. confronting genocide, 3. university studies and education, and 4. collecting experience); evaluation (1. Red Cross forum, 2. organization and technology assessment, 3. Open Hand - Experience of Good People); activities in different stages of war or conflict in: 1. prevention (right to a home, Hate Watch, early warning), 2. duration (refugee camps, prisoners-of-war camps, global hospital, minorities), 3. end of conflict (planned, organized, and evaluated protection), 4. post conflict (remaini ng and abandoned populations, prisoners of war and missing persons, civilian participation, return, and renewal). Effectiveness of humanitarian intervention may be performed by politicians, soldiers, humanitarian workers, and volunteers, but the responsibility lies on science. Science must objectively collect data, develop hypotheses, check them in practice, allow education, and be the force of good, upon which everybody can rely. Never since the World War II has anybody in Europe suffered in war and conflict so much as peoples in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo. We should search for the meaning of their suffering, and develop new knowledge and technology of peace.  (+info)

Relationship of psychopathology to the human serotonin1B genotype and receptor binding kinetics in postmortem brain tissue. (7/490)

Knockout of the 5-HT1B gene in mice results in increased aggression, as well as alcohol and cocaine consumption. Given the clinical association of aggression, suicide, alcoholism, and substance abuse, we studied relationship of psychopathology to the human 5-HT1B receptor gene (N = 178) and postmortem human 5-HT1B receptor binding (N = 96) in the brain. The sample comprised: 71 suicide victims, 107 nonsuicides, 45 with a history of major depression and 79 without, 64 with a history of a alcoholism or substance abuse and 60 without, as well as 36 with a history of pathological aggression and 42 without. Single-strand conformational polymorphism (SSCP) analysis and DNA sequencing techniques were used to screen the coding region of the human 5-HT1B receptor gene in genomic DNA isolated from postmortem human brain tissue. Two common polymorphisms were identified in the 5-HT1B receptor gene, involving a silent C to T substitution at nucleotide 129 and a silent G to C substitution at nucleotide 861 of the coding region. These polymorphisms were found with the same frequency in the suicide and the nonsuicide groups and in those with and without a history of major depression, alcoholism, or pathological aggression. The binding indices (Bmax and KD of the 5-HT1B receptor in prefrontal cortex also did not differ in suicides and controls, major depression, alcoholism, and cases with a history of pathological aggression. The C129 or G861 allele had 20% fewer 5-HT1B receptor compared to the 129T or 861C allele. We did not identify a relationship between suicide, major depression, alcoholism, or pathological aggression with 5-HT1B receptor binding indices or genotype.  (+info)

Mortality associated with use of weapons in armed conflicts, wartime atrocities, and civilian mass shootings: literature review. (8/490)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the implications of variation in mortality associated with use of weapons in different contexts. DESIGN: Literature review. SETTINGS: Armed conflicts and civilian mass shootings, 1929-96. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Mortality from wounds. RESULTS: During the fighting of war the number of people wounded is at least twice the number killed and may be 13 times as high; this ratio of the number wounded to the number killed results from the impact of a weapon system on human beings in the particular context of war. When firearms are used against people who are immobilised, in a confined space, or unable to defend themselves the wounded to killed ratio has been lower than 1 or even 0. CONCLUSIONS: Mortality from firearms depends not only on the technology of the weapon or its ammunition but also on the context in which it is used. The increased mortality resulting from the use of firearms in situations other than war requires a complex interaction of factors explicable in terms of wound ballistics and the psychology of the user. Understanding these factors has implications for recognition of war crimes. In addition, the lethality of conventional weapons may be increased if combatants are disabled by the new non-lethal weapons beforehand; this possibility requires careful legal examination within the framework of the Geneva Conventions.  (+info)

RIVISTA SPERIMENTALE DI FRENIATRIA - Issues in measuring and comparing the incidence of intimate partner homicide and femicide - A focus on Europe ( Intimate partner homicide is an important contributor to homicide rates worldwide, disproportionally affecting women as victims. Still, major gaps exist in the measurement of intimate partner homicide, with many homicides not being identified as intimate partner homicides. This article provides an overview of the main issues in the collection and reporting on intimate partner homicide, focusing in particular on the data situation in Europe. Sources of homicide data - national and police statistics, court statistics and files, mortuary data and newspaper databases - face similar challenges, namely absence or missing information on the victim-offender relationship, and different categorizations of key parameters, such as definition of intimate partner homicide, and identification of reporting periods. This is concerning, as strong and reliable data on the

N2 - BACKGROUND: Homicide - a lethal expression of violence - has garnered little attention from public health researchers and health policy makers, despite the fact that homicides are a cause of preventable and premature death. Identifying populations at risk and the upstream determinants of homicide are important for addressing inequalities that hinder population health. This population-based study investigates the public health significance of homicides in Ontario, Canada, over the period of 1999-2012. We quantified the relative burden of homicides by comparing the socioeconomic gradient in homicides with the leading causes of death, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and neoplasm, and estimated the potential ...
Trends & issues in crime and criminal justice No. 469 March 2014 Foreword While there is a sizable body of research on intimate partner homicide in general, there has been limited focus on intimate partner
Homicide is the most extreme act of violence. Although all homicides involve death at the hands of another, homicide is in actuality a diverse group of events. Homicides can occur between strangers, acquaintances, and intimate partners; they involve a wide array of physical forces and weapons and they include many types of motivations and precipitating factors. Although diverse, homicides have some predictable characteristics that can be used to improve efforts to prevent their occurrence.. In the United States, homicide is the fourth leading cause of death for those aged 1-14, the second leading cause for those aged 15-24, and the third leading cause for those aged 25-34. In 2000, 16,765 people were the victims of homicide.. The homicide rate in the United States has fluctuated over time. After low rates in the 1950s, homicide rates reached an all-time high of 10.2 per 100,000 population in 1980. After decreasing until 1985, rates rose again to reach 9.8 per 100,000 in 1991. Since 1991, the ...
Some previous studies have found that the amount and severity of injuries in homicide victims correlate with different homicide characteristics, such as the victim-offender relationship and drug influence of the offender. If such relationships exist, they may be used by homicide investigators as part of an offender profiling.. Furthermore, injury severity may be helpful in understanding the nature of lethal violence. If the injuries change over time or differ between regions, this may say something about the underlying causes and thus help society to take preventive measures. However, measures of injury severity are often missing in homicide epidemiology. This may in part be due to a lack of standardized and accessible ways to quantify injuries in homicide victim.. To address these issues, there is a need for methods to quantify injury severity in homicide victims. The aim of the current thesis was to investigate different types of injury measures and their applicability to homicide victims. The ...
Although the sharp increase in homicide rates among US youth has begun to reverse1 as overall homicide rates among other age groups have declined in recent years,2 the public health challenge of reducing firearm fatalities is growing. Firearms account for an increasing proportion of intentional injury deaths in the US, especially among the homicides of young persons: the proportion of homicide deaths attributed to firearms among 15-34 year olds rose from 66.4% in 19851 to 79.8% in 1997,3 the most recent year for which final data are available. The proportion of suicide deaths of 15-34 year olds attributed to firearms remained stable during this same period (57.3% in 19851 and 56.8% in 19973).. Preventing firearm related deaths is a substantial challenge. Most efforts have focused on the availability or accessibility of firearms. Whether the strategy is to restrict or to increase firearm availability and accessibility,4-7 an underlying goal is to equalize force in situations with the potential ...
Since 1930, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has compiled the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) to serve as a periodic nationwide assessment of reported crimes not available elsewhere in the criminal justice system. Each year, this information is reported in four types of files: (1) Offenses Known and Clearances by Arrest, (2) Property Stolen and Recovered, (3) Supplementary Homicide Reports (SHR), and (4) Police Employee (LEOKA) Data. The Supplementary Homicide Reports provide incident-based information on criminal homicides reported to the police. These homicides consist of murders, non-negligent manslaughter, and justifiable homicides. The data, provided monthly by UCR agencies, contain information describing the victim of the homicide, the offender, and the relationship between victim and offender.. ...

Of all female homicide victims, 64{af1ba1a91bc861d9d4515934e2f6711ae2663fa690a84d9bc87eb568fed08e93} are killed by someone they know, most frequently (45{af1ba1a91bc861d9d4515934e2f6711ae2663fa690a84d9bc87eb568fed08e93}) by a spouse, former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend ( 44 ). Conversely, 16{af1ba1a91bc861d9d4515934e2f6711ae2663fa690a84d9bc87eb568fed08e93} of male homicide victims in 2007 were killed by a family member or intimate partner ( 44 ). Firearms may also increase the probability of death in IPV incidents: Women are 5 times more likely to be killed by their abuser if he ...

Alice falsely believes that killing her husband Bob would be morally right (say, because Bob committed adultery). She shoots Bob, trying to hit him in the head, but misses completely and Bob escapes. Alice has committed attempted murder. But while she attempted to kill Bob, she did not attempt to murder Bob. For it was her intention to rightfully kill Bob rather than to murder him.. Therefore, attempted murder is not an attempt to murder. Speaking very carefully, we should say that Alice committed an attempted murder but did not attempt a murder. What she attempted was a killing, a killing that would have been a murder had she succeeded.. While the point is particularly clear in the case where the attempted murderer believes the killing to be right, the point also goes through in cases where the attempted murderer knows the killing would be a murder. Suppose Chuck wants to inherit an estate from his uncle Dave. Chuck knows full well that killing Dave would be a murder, and he attempts to kill ...
Data for this project was compiled from a variety of sources. To generate the homicide rate (per 100,000), homicide incident counts were obtained from HOMICIDES IN CHICAGO, 1965-1995 (ICPSR 6399). This dataset includes tract identifiers that allow for merging with other tract characteristics. The population sizes used in the denominator of the homicide rate were obtained from the decennial United States Census files for each decade from 1980-2000, and cubic spline interpolation was used to generate intercensal estimates. The homicide rate was calculated per 100,000 population. Due to a high degree of skewness in the homicide rate, the study analyses used the natural log of the homicide rate. One objective was to examine the relationships between homicide trends and various characteristics of neighborhood structure identified as relevant by the social disorganization perspective. These variables were drawn from the CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: SUMMARY TAPE FILE 3A ...

Social scientists found that homicide victims killed in Chicagos predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhoods received less news coverage.
IIIDivision of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, University of Cape Town. To the Editor: Mortality is the most extreme consequence of child abuse, but it is not always conceptualised within the framework of child abuse and neglect. While undertaking research for the recent National Female and Child Homicide Study, it became apparent that medical practitioners, and especially forensic pathologists, often deviate from their legal and ethical obligations when the cause of a death raises suspicion of child abuse or neglect.. During data collection from mortuaries and police interviews, we encountered many instances where the Inquest Act[1] and the Childrens Amendment Act[2] were not adhered to. Frequently, childrens bodies had been released without a police investigation, particularly when death occurred in hospital. Whether it was assumed that a police case had been opened prior to the hospital admission, or whether the required involvement of the police had simply been forgotten, is unclear. In ...

Conversely, clinicians may never see a patient who has committed a homicide or serious act of interpersonal violence. Up to 10% of homicide offenders may have schizophrenia, but the annual risk that a person with schizophrenia will commit a homicide is in the region of 1 in 10 000 and that of acquiring conviction for violence is 1 in 150 (Wallace et al, 2004). The apparent paradox is because serious violence, and homicide in particular, is far rarer in our community than most realise. The annual homicide rate in the UK is about 1 in 100 000, so even a tenfold increase in risk among those with schizophrenia will not necessarily affect the individual clinician, although it most certainly will affect the community as a whole.. Minor forms of assault in schizophrenia are more common (5-15% per year), but they are often conceptualised by clinicians not as illness-related but as contextual, personality-based or intoxication-driven. The problems created by the antisocial behaviour are further obscured ...

Munich police investigator Robert Heimberger said it appears that the shooter hacked a Facebook account and sent a message urging people to come to the mall for a free giveaway.. The posting, sent from a young womans account, urged people to come to the mall at 4 p.m., saying: Ill give you something if you want, but not too expensive.. Heimberger says: It appears it was prepared by the suspect and then sent out.. Some reports suggest the Facebook post claimed that free food would be given away at McDonalds.. A woman, who wished to only be known as Lauretta, told CNN she was in the McDonalds restaurant at the time of the attack and saw many casualties that were children.. ...

Rabbit owners in the German towns of Witten and Dortmund are living under a pall of fear following the slaughter of 30 animals in a year-long lapine decapitation murder spree.. According to the BBC, the animals are always found headless and drained of blood. Seventy-four-year-old Elfriede Dumont explained: One morning, when I came out to feed my rabbits, I was surprised to see that the hutch door was open. I looked inside and saw Rocco just lying there. His head was missing. A little later I found Felina in the bushes. Shed been killed, too. I just cannot understand why.. Police officer Volker Schuette, having shown the shaken Beeb hack disturbing photographs of headless pet rabbits, elaborated: Its always the same. Detectives find the rabbit lying dead in a hutch. An unknown person has cut off the head and drained off the blood in a box or a bottle. So we find no blood and no head.. Police are concerned the murderer might turn his attentions to humans, and have accordingly set up a task ...

Perry Smith and Dick Hickock swung from the gallows long ago.. Truman Capote, the author whose best-selling book In Cold Blood immortalized the brutally murderous pair, also has died.. But Topeka attorney Chuck Mc-Atee, who played a key role in the executions of Hickock and Smith and came to know them and Capote well, lives on. So do his memories of what may be the most notorious of Kansas crimes and the making of the book and movie that described them.. I grew to know Dick Hickock and Perry Smith as human beings more so than murderers, McAtee said.. Smith and Hickock killed the four members of the Clutter family Nov. 15, 1959, in the familys farmhouse near Holcomb. The killings were shockingly violent.. The pair were demonized as psychopathic killers and were among the last to die on the gallows of the state prison in Lansing.. McAtee was then the states director of penal institutions. He said he befriended the killers though he was repulsed by their deeds. To this day, he weeps when ...

Im sorry. Murderer Roy Webster mouthed the words to his victims heartbroken family as they filed out of the courtroom and he was led off to begin a life sentence.
It appears to be an inborn and imperative need of all men to regard the self as a unit. However often and however grievously this illusion is shattered, it always mends again. The judge who sits over the murderer and looks into his face, and at one moment recognizes all the emotions and potentialities and possibilities of the murderer in his own soul and hears the murderers voice as his own, is at the next moment one and indivisible as the judge, and scuttles back into the shell of his cultivated self and does his duty and condemns the murderer to death. And if ever the suspicion of their manifold being dawns upon men of unusual powers and of unusually delicate perceptions, so that, as all genius must, they break through the illusion of the unity of the personality and perceive that the self is made up of a bundle of selves, they have only to say so and at once the majority puts them under lock and key, calls science to aid, establishes schizomania and protects humanity from the necessity of ...
Determining the relationship between gun ownership levels and firearm homicide rates is critical to inform public health policy. Previous research has shown that state-level gun ownership, as measured by a widely used proxy, is positively associated with firearm homicide rates. A newly developed proxy measure that incorporates the hunting license rate in addition to the proportion of firearm suicides correlates more highly with state-level gun ownership. To corroborate previous research, we used this new proxy to estimate the association of state-level gun ownership with total, firearm, and non-firearm homicides. Using state-specific data for the years 1981-2010, we modelled these rates as a function of gun ownership level, controlling for potential confounding factors. We used a negative binomial regression model and accounted for clustering of observations among states. We found that state-level gun ownership as measured by the new proxy, is significantly associated with firearm and total ...
A population-based case-control study was conducted to assess the relationship between genocide exposure and homicide perpetration in Rwanda. A sample of 150 homicide perpetrators who were charged with and confessed to having committed homicide between 1 May 2011 and 31 May 2013 and 450 controls were enrolled. Cases were matched to controls by neighborhood, age and sex. Socio-demographic, background and genocide-related information was collected from study subjects next of kin. Four characteristics of genocide exposure were: genocide survivor, genocide perpetrator, having lost a first-degree relative to genocide and having a first-degree relative convicted of genocide. We assessed the impact of each genocide-exposure variable using conditional logistic regression. Of the 150 cases, 124 (82.7%) were male and 26 (17.3%) were female. The mean age of the alleged homicide perpetrators was 33 years, with a peak in the age group 20-29 years (39.3%). After adjusting for socio-demographic ...
Only two states, Alaska and South Dakota, mandate that sellers agents reveal whether a homicide or suicide occurred at a listed home within the previous 12 months, according to NAR spokesman Walter Molony. In Connecticut, Delaware, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Oklahoma, if a prospective buyer asks about past bloodshed, real estate agents must truthfully answer the question.. In most states, a seller isnt required to voluntarily disclose nonstructural issues such as homicides on the property, said Holden Lewis, a real estate expert at Bankrate.com, a consumer finance service. For example, he noted that Minnesota law says the seller doesnt have to disclose that the property was the location of a suicide, death or perceived paranormal activity. . In Maryland, where Betts was shot to death, agents must inform buyers only about material facts they know or should know, said Chuck Kasky, vice president of legal affairs for the Maryland Association of Realtors. When it comes to Maryland ...

The Ingalls Avenue block where the apartment building is located was closed to traffic Thursday as police investigated.
Discussion. There is an enormous amount of literature in the lay press on homicide, but very few published studies; this paper is believed to be the first for this area. Mthatha was the capital city of the former black homeland of Transkei, which is now part of Eastern Cape Province - one of South Africas poorest provinces. Eastern Cape has a population of 7 million, of whom nearly 4 million inhabit the Transkei region. Close to three-quarters (74%) of the provinces population e arn less than R1 500 per month, and 41% of households have a monthly income under R500 per month. The Eastern Cape has the countrys second-highest proportion of poor (44.5%) - with the equivalent figure in the Transkei no less than 92%.9 Unemployment increased from 36% in 1996 to 43% in 2001, and poverty from 34% to 39% during the same period, in Eastern Cape.10. Of the total of 12 063 unnatural deaths reported between 1993 and 2005, 5 583 (46%) were the result of shooting, stabbing or assault with a blunt object. ...
Posted by Steve Bogira. Another price of segregation: not just homicide, but countless walking wounded. Five people were shot in South Shore early Monday evening outside a currency exchange. The offender approached on foot, began firing, and fled. No one was killed, but four of the shooting victims were hospitalized in serious condition.. As of yesterday afternoon, two of the victims were still in serious condition; the condition of the others had been upgraded to good. No one was in custody. A police spokesperson said the shooting may have stemmed from an earlier altercation.. In all, 11 people were shot in Chicago Monday evening and Tuesday morning, all on the south and west sides. None of the shootings were fatal.. Chicagos high homicide rate has gotten much attention this year. Through November, thered been 480 homicides here, up 21 percent from 2011..

A newly-released police charge sheet obtained by the Daily Observer reveals that officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) allegedly tampered with the investigative report surrounding the death of Steve Paul.. The police investigative report that brought a negligent homicide charge against Solomon Badio, 44, in connection with the November 8, 2018 homicide of Steve Paul at the Camp Johnson Road Community in Monrovia, raises even more questions about what happened on the day Paul died.. The trial of Badio has been suppressed for months due to contradictions in the polices report, with Montserrado County Attorney Edwin Martin requesting for a new investigative report to amend the crime against Badio from negligent homicide to murder, following a new discovery in the testimonies of eyewitnesses.. Steve Paul died when Badio, on November 8, 2018, struck him in the chest with his fist while in Steves office on Camp Johnson Road.. Badio has been charged with negligent homicide for causing ...

Nature vs Narcissism is a true crime/comedy podcast based in Cincinnati, Ohio where Heather and her guests discuss true crimes and the narcissists who commit them. Sometimes we have alcohol and sometimes things get weird. In Season 1, we went down the alphabet focusing on different murderers and/or stupid criminals based on their name. For example; Episode 1 examines two notorious murderers whose names begin with the letter A. Season 2 we will go down the alphabet focusing on different serial killers/spree killers/murderers who were from or committed most of their crimes in cities/towns with each respective letter of the alphabet. For example, we may focus on someone from Cincinnati, Ohio for the letter C. Every episode is different and every episode is entertaining! We will delve into whether we think nature made the criminals commit these heinous acts, or if its simply their narcissism getting the best of them. Keep in mind, this podcast is strictly for entertainment purposes and is in no way
Lady Gaga is avowedly bi, and identifies queer. You can like her or not (my feelings are mixed) and whether her queerness has wider relevance is arguable, but I think saying shes not an actual queer person (which is what youre implying?) is not true.. Heres me on Lady Gagas last album. I fear youll hate it, but it seemed cowardly not to include the link.. In the Twin Peaks post, it certainly wasnt my intention to say that gay people are murderers; I mean, I really, really dont think its true that gay people are any more likely to be murderers than anyone else. I think Twin Peaks is really campy in a lot of ways (I dont think thats a supercontroversial thing to say?) and camp is generally identified with queerness. I think too that Lynch is working off of the queer patriarch/murderer trope to work with other tropes about queerness. And he does explicitly make Leland the victim of a male-male sexual assault….. My point in that essay was to question the way that Twin Peaks privileges an ...
Yet another Diagnosis Murder gimmick/crossover episode. Let me explain (if youve read some of the other Diagnosis Murder pages, skip ahead as I go through the same old explanation) Diagnosis Murder started out as a sort of Murder, She Wrote knock off but even when the show premiered Murder, She Wrote had already largely wore out that find the killer format. So Diagnosis Murder started playing around to keep things interesting. They started doing shows with gimmicks to get viewers to watch. They would, for instance, have a show where all the guest stars were actors who had previously starred in popular cop shows. And sometimes they would actually have crossovers with actors playing the characters they made popular on other shows. In the episode Discards they did both. In the episode, Doctor Sloans associate Doctor Jesse Travis discovers that his father is in fact.... A SPY!!!! I hate it when that happens! Same thing happened to a friend of mine. He thought his dad was a janitor, turned out ...
Shannon Young said she worries every morning that she will get a phone call saying her husband has been murdered in prison.. My daily fear is that he is going to die, she said.. He was stabbed two months ago, Young said.. Youngs husband is incarcerated at South Central Correctional Facility in Clifton, Tn, a prison operated by CoreCivic, a for-profit company based in Nashville. CoreCivic was previously known as CCA, Corrections Corporation of America.. Alex Friedmann of the prison watchdog group Human Rights Defense Center said in the last five years, two inmates have been murdered at South Central. During a five-year period, he said, ten inmates have been killed in CoreCivic prisons. In comparison, during the same five years, he said, five inmates - half as many - were murdered at state-run prisons.. It is an inexcusable number, Friedmann said.. Adjusted for population counts, Friedmann said the homicide rate at CoreCivic facilities is four times higher than the rate for TDOC ...

LAS VEGAS - The father accused of murder has pleaded not guilty in the homicide of a Las Vegas infant in November. The Clark County Coroners office said Tuesday
Leave it to NOW to want a reeducation campaign to make Americans better understand a woman who murdered her vie children and repeatedly said she knew what she was doing was wrong.. Bell is correct, however, about the need for a public education campaign, but that campaign needs to be about child and infant murderers.. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta released a report in early March noting that homicide was the 15th-leading cause of infant deaths in the United States. Children have a greater risk of being murdered during their first year of life than at anytime until they reach the age of 17.. Oddly enough, unlike Yates, murderers of infants rarely spend much time in jail. Typical of such killers is Melissa Drexler. On June 6, 1997, she gave birth to a baby boy in the ladies room of a catering hall where her high school prom was being held. She suffocated the newborn infant, threw the body in a trash can and returned to the prom. Drexler was released after serving just barely over 3 ...
A 66-year-old man died five days after being severely injured during an altercation Feb. 19 in Kansas City, police said Wednesday. They identified him as Robert Dunlap.
Homicide is the leading cause of death among New York City (NYC) youth aged 15-19 years (1) and the second leading cause of death among this age group nationally (2). During the 1980s, the rate of firearm-related homicide increased more rapidly among this age group than did any other cause of death (2). The 1991 national school-based Youth Risk Behavior Survey indicated that 26% of students in grades 9-12 reported carrying a weapon at least once during the 30 days preceding the survey (3). To more effectively target violence-prevention programs for youth in NYC, in 1992 the NYC Department of Health (NYCDOH), the NYC Public Schools (NYCPS), and CDC conducted a survey of violence-related attitudes and behaviors among a representative sample of NYC public high school students. This report summarizes the results of the survey. A self-administered questionnaire was given to a representative sample of 9th-12th grade students in the NYCPS during June 1992. The sampling frame included all academic, ...
Gun control is an issue surrounded by (some would say submerged in) myth and misunderstanding. We present here ten myths that are most frequently raised . . . and, from our perspective, most commonly misunderstood.. Myth No. 1: Guns cause crime. A review of the academic literature shows that there is no relationship between the number of guns and the amount of crime in the United States. Criminologists Gary Kleck and E. Britt Patterson reported in 1993 their finding that gun ownership had no significant effect on the rates of murder, assault, robbery, or rape in the U.S. Between 1973 and 1992, the rate of gun ownership in the U.S. increased by 45 percent (from 610 guns per 1,000 people to 887). The homicide rate during that period fell by nearly 10 percent (from 9.4 homicides per 100,000 people to 8.5).. Myth No. 2: Gun control laws reduce crime. Firearms have been regulated with increasing stringency in the United States for most of the past thirty years. Nevertheless, the number of firearms in ...

Autopsy: Oklahoma inmates death a homicide; no charges yet - AP News: OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Prosecutors were awaiting the results of .02/21/2018 22:38:47PM EST.
Obviously, many factors contributed to the citys health crises of the 1980s. We have focused on the role of public policy because unlike social and economic trends, which appear difficult to change in the short or middle run, policies can and do change. Identifying the types of decisions that harmed health in the past may make it possible to advocate different approaches in the future. Similarly, examining policies that contributed to several adverse health outcomes-in this case the TB, HIV, and homicide syndemic-may make it possible to suggest more efficient approaches to policy advocacy and to frame policy messages that resonate in the current political climate. As city, state, and federal governments again face deficits and propose deep cuts in services, it seems particularly urgent to avoid a repetition of the 1975 decisions that so damaged New York Citys health.. Our historical health impact assessment demonstrates several pathways by which these policy decisions exacerbated the syndemic. ...
