Example text

A comparison group must be based on ceteris paribus criteria. It is questionable whether these criteria can be established for someone who has murdered his wife or shot someone in a robbery. Is the person who lives next door a reasonable “control” for someone who habitually assaults children? Assessing and controlling for the degree of intentionality in violent behavior is a problem that needs to be addressed in any study of violent behavior. A second problem with event-based samples is that they are a highly selective subgroup of all cases of the occurrence of the event, with perhaps the single exception of homicide victims, most of whom are eventually discovered.

This detailed analysis of 646 rape events shows, for example, that over 40% of rapes involve multiple offenders; in half of the rapes the victim and offender were acquainted and in 20% they 1 • Issues in Alcohol-Related Violence 21 were neighbors. Half of the offenders had a criminal record, but few had previous records of sexual offenses. The place of initial “meeting” of offender and victim is frequently (41%) and somewhat surprisingly in one of their homes. ” Only 11% of rapes occur near a bar.

The emphasis will be on homicide partly because it is an easily definable category of crime and thus there is the least possible definitional variation between cultures and jurisdictions. Homicides are definitely interindividual. A proportion of homicides are, however, instrumental for various reasons and one criterion is not optimally fulfilled. ” He noted, however, “If robbery, rape and arson were included [in an analysis] just because they are classified as violent crimes for nonscientific purposes, the explanatory accounting would have been extremely complex and more often misleading than not” In the last decade, proportionately more homicides are instrumental, especially those with some drug involvement, and therefore even they involve an extension of the explanatory framework.
