Nomothetic offender profiles are best described by (Turvey, 2011) as offender characteristics developed by studying groups of offenders. Nomothetic profiles do not represent actual offenders that exist in the real world. They represent varying degrees of theory and possibility.
The study of nomothetic profiles focuses in observations about the characteristics of groups, which are useful and necessary when trying to define groups, solve group related problems or generate initial theories about issues in specific cases. The nomothetic offender profiles no other than the characteristics created by studying groups of offenders. Furthermore nomothetic profiles are just hypothetical. This means...

At the beginning Macbeth and Banquo come in being the best of friends, joking around and having their arms around each other. We can tell they are best friends at the start because Banquo calls Macbeth 'my noble partner' which gives the impression that they are good friends. After the witches have vanished and Macbeth is proclaimed thane of Cawdor they start hiding things from each other and make this noticeable by starting to stand further apart. At this point Macbeth and Banquo do not trust each other as much anymore.We can tell this because Macbeth starts speaking aside and talking to himself and the audience. 'Glamis and thane of Cawdor: the greatest is behind', This suggests that he...

For the worst crimes, life without parole is better, for many reasons. I’m against the death penalty not because of sympathy for criminals but because it isn’t effective in reducing crime, prolongs the anguish of families of murder victims, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people.
The death penalty keeps the population safe by providing a deterrent for crime. Without the death penalty, the consequences for committing murder are not as feared. According to an essay by Professor Jeffrey A. Fagan, “executions [do] not only...

The first quote sums up the narrator’s intention of writing this novel and the town’s fascination with the crime of honor. Throughout the span of the novel, it becomes increasingly clear that the murder had to happen. Santiago’s fate was to die for the sake of honor as well as the functionality of the town. Although, it is not even clear that he took Angela’s virginity the murder needed to happen. This demonstrates the irrationality of the values. There is no fact showing that he in fact took this virginity but the town needs to point a finger to move on. This quote is illustrative of the town’s obsession with the murder and its inevitability as fate. However, due to the town’s obsessive...

One of the toughest questions we are asked at the Holocaust History Project is when someone says "tell me everything you can about the Holocaust."
It is difficult because we know that this person wants to know about the Holocaust, but does not yet know enough to ask the right questions. There is so much information about the Holocaust that it is impossible to describe it all in a simple answer. We can, however, tell you what the Holocaust was and - most importantly - where you can read about it.
The Holocaust was the effort of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany to exterminate the Jews and other people that they considered to be inferior. As a result about 12,000,000...

The character of Macbeth is a classic example of a Shakespearean tragic hero. There are many factors which contribute to the degeneration of Macbeth of which three will be discussed. The three points which contribute greatly to Macbeth's degeneration are the prophecy which was told to him by the witches, how Lady Macbeth influenced and manipulated Macbeth's judgment, and finally Macbeth's long time ambition which drove his desire to be king. Macbeth's growing character degenerates from a noble man to violent individual.
The prophecies which were told by the witches were one of the factors which contributed to the degeneration of his character. If it had not been for the witches telling...

Death Penalty for Juveniles
In society today, the discussion of Capital Punishment - or the Death penalty - is a highly controversial subject. The political correctness stance that the country has taken only compounds the discussion exponentially. The death penalty is often associated with heinous crimes that are committed by adults. Capital punishment is highly publicized by the media when adults commit senseless acts against humanity. When adults are placed on death row society acknowledges that justice has been served. However, adults aren’t the only members of the community that commit...

Tragedy reveals the true identity of a person as it draws out one’s deepest inner emotions; this is evident in William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. In the play, the newly appointed King and brother of the late King Hamlet, is responsible for the murder of his own brother and Denmark’s beloved ruler. The new King, Claudius, displays several different sides of himself to his audience when all begins to go awry. He now knows that the former King’s son, Hamlet, knows of his murder, his friend Polonius was killed by a seemingly insane Hamlet, and Polonius’ children are losing their sense of sanity and are blaming Claudius for their father’s murder. Within his speech,...

Macbeth Opinion Piece
Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play that challenges the characters willingness to give into evil and the risks they take to acquire power. Lady Macbeth demonstrates witch like qualities throughout the play as she provokes and challenges Macbeth - an honorary soldier, to assassinate the King as a way of crowning himself. Lady Macbeth should be considered nothing less than a fourth witch due to her manipulation of her husband, her intent to commit evil, and her deceitful persona.
The characteristics of a witch are most commonly defined as, manipulative, deceitful, evil, and corrupt, but most importantly manipulative. Witches have a power to persuade the mind,...

Lady Macbeth is an accessory to murder, but she is not the murderer, and cannot, therefore, be more culpable than Macbeth, who did the deed with his own hand. That she is an accessory goes without argument: it was she who drugged the guards and who laid the daggers out in readiness; it was she, also, who rang the bell to alert Macbeth that the preparations had been made.
But she was no murderer. As evil as Lady Macbeth is, she couldn't actually bring herself to commit the act (she said she might have done it, had Duncan not looked like her father as he was sleeping). So the Lady is all talk, no action.
Where people would argue that her culpability lies is in her talk. She is brutal in her...

The most common and unnecessary form of infanticide is an abortion. The abortion rate of America alone is shockingly high and yet increases every year. So why are so many women choosing to end the lives of unborn babies that weren’t even given the chance to live? For most women, the reason is social issues: they may not feel ready or prepared to have a baby, they may be too young or they just view their pregnancy as a mistake. No matter the reason, abortions are not acceptable and we, as Americans, should fight as hard as we can to diminish them just like we would, murder or terrorism.
Since abortions have become such an everyday procedure, scientists and physicians have...

No matter where you turn, you are going to hear about crime. You don’t always get to hear about the outcome though. It gets press time when it is a big case, but what about the others? Do you ever wonder what happens when it is a case that the media doesn’t think is important? Every crime deserves its day in court to get justice where it is deserved.
Take the case of Catherine Fisher and her fight for justice against a man who raped her. Sounds like an open and shut case, right? Man rapes woman. Woman identifies him. He is charged and serves his time. This...

Our response to stimuli constructs our human condition and furthermore who we are as an individual. Whether it is positive or negative forces, our responses to these things influence how we are perceived by people. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet seeks out revenge on Claudius, his uncle turned step-father who killed his father and is now trying to act innocent. Although the characters believe in Claudius’ innocence and furthermore that Hamlet is crazy, it is in the final interaction between Hamlet and Claudius that all can see Claudius’ guilt. It is a natural response for some to react in fear with violence, as it is part of our human nature which can be seen through Hamlet’s driving desire...

For this assignment I will be describing the elements of a crime which are Mens Rea and Actus Reus. Mens Rea is Latin for 'guilty mind' and it is the mental thinking behind the crime which has been committed, it refers to the intentions of the person who committed the crime.

For example, when someone commits theft they must've physically taken something. The three C's of Actus Reus must be taken into account when investigating a crime they are:

Right to life, that life of every human being is very valuable, is a core concept of human civilization. All the major religions and philosophies declared that human life is inviolable. None has any right to take the life of another. If anybody takes the life of another, s/he will be punished with capital punishment. This basic proposition has been accepted by most of the earlier human societies and it has not been questioned until the modern humanitarian movement has taken momentum. Capital punishment is a relevant issue for every human society and it constitutes a “dilemma of hidden human divinity versus hubristic capital punishment.” The concept of a right to life is...

The legalization of marijuana has been a controversial topic for many years now. Do the pros of the legalization of marijuana outweigh the cons of the legalization of marijuana? I believe so.

However some choose to argue that the crime rate would rise as of a result of the legalization of marijuana. However legalization of cannabis would lessen the prison population, allow marijuana to be table and create billions of dollars that...

Misdemeanors are going to deal with fewer crimes. A few examples are minor thefts, certain traffic offenses (like DUI or driving on a suspended license), and many minor drug offenses. Dealing with misdemeanors you will either be hit with a fine or jail time that is usually less than a year. In addition, dealing with misdemeanors depending on the charges if you have multiple charges they can be structured to run consecutively (rather than concurrently) meaning that when one sentence ends the next one begins. In that way, multiple misdemeanor charges can equate to years in jail.
With the jail term, you may receive from the misdemeanor it will either be local or county jail....

In the short story “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator is very insane and mentally ill. He is a murderer, does not sleep much, is very paranoid, and is unable to distinguish what is real and unreal.
It is clear that Poe wants to create a character who is mad. First off, the narrator kills the old man. By doing so, he is considered a murderer. The death occurs “in an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him” (44). He is obviously not in his right mind to murder someone in such a manner. The narrator even claims to enjoy the event of murdering the old man.

convicted to have committed selected crimes were punished by means of capital punishment through hanging or firing squad. It was thought to be cruel, it was fought against, and it was abolished. As society continued to evolve and advance so did the means for capital punishment. With the advances in technology new ways were discovered and invented to end the lives of criminals. Electrocution and lethal injection were introduced into the criminal justice system. They are still in practice today by various states but many states have found them to be cruel and unusual and have fought against them and decided to abolish the practice.
Not all states have done this but many have. In the future as...

“Killings,” one of Dubus’s best-known and most respected stories, was the basis for the film In the Bedroom (2001). Although the story revolves around passion and violence, Dubus tells the tale in a flat, calm way. The first two acts of violence are dropped into the story unexpectedly and without emotion. The story opens with Frank’s funeral, then moves on to the conversation between Willis and Matt about how Matt wishes he could kill the man who murdered his son, but the reader does not know who killed Frank, how, or why. Next, in a long descriptive paragraph, Richard is introduced. He is first connected to Frank by the flat opening line of the...

Gothic can be defined as “literature dealing with the strange, mysterious, and supernatural designed to invoke suspense and terror in the reader.” (Pickering, 2004, p. 1425) Gothic literature generally presents the same themes and motifs: love lost, hidden secrets, love and death hand in hand, beauty, youth, grotesque characters, macabre eroticism, etc. Gothic literature also explores taboo subjects such as murder, suicide and incest. “A Rose for Emily”, by William Faulkner, is representative of the Southern Gothic stories since the themes of love lost, death, and murder are present in it. There are many elements that hint at the Gothic...

Sujata Bhatt begins to communicate the loss of culture and language by separating her poem into two stanzas. She indents the second stanza to segregate them both and illustrate that there is a clear difference between the significance of each. She does this to show that the first stanza is a symbol of those unaffected by globalization and the Western society, those who have maintained their ‘original culture’. She then uses the second stanza to contradict this by making it about those who chose to migrate away from India and are bound or are in favour of International...

These arguments include the chance of error being very low in capital punishment, the deterrent effect and the innocent lives at stake. In this essay, I will justify my points and make clear meanings of these arguments.
Firstly, I want to talk about the chance of error being low, in his article he states that “of the 875 people...

Though the feeling of revenge is meant to motivate a person to retaliate towards someone who did them wrong, it often harms themself in the process. In the novel Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley and the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Victor’s devotion to acting on his revenge leads to his death, while Hamlet’s refusal to do so leads to being killed by a man who does take action. This reveals that a person devoted to revenge causes their own death as well as the deaths of people who take too long to act. After Victor creates a monster a spurns it for his appearance, it kills several people close to him, including his brother, best friend and wife. Hamlet meanwhile, discovers via his...

Impact of Death Row on the Correction System
When an individual is found guilty of a criminal offense and consequently sentenced to death, the individual is held in death row pending any habeas corpus or appeals, and if these fail, until the convict is convicted. Those opposed to capital punishment have contended that the isolation of a convict and the uneasiness over his or her destiny constitutes a kind of mental depravity and that long-term death row convicts are particularly prone to become mentally unstable. This condition is commonly known as death row phenomenon. In severe cases, some convicts may try committing suicide....
