As an adult, child abuse victims don’t know where to go (2014). They haven’t had support or love from others and new emotions may be scary to them. Many can’t afford to get extra schooling. Therefore making money is difficult as well. Money making could be a stress factor.…

    (2006) note the evolving use of restorative justice in victim services.

    The photographs taken from the Franklin home were released by the Los Angeles Police Department last week. The women’s faces in the photos looked like they were unconscious, asleep, or dead. These women were mothers, daughters, and sisters who had families that will never get their loved ones back. It was a abhorrent case that is part of history today. Women left behind children, spouses, and families. I cannot imagine what the women who were captured by this Lonnie Franklin. At this time the…

    newer in society, however, are victim rights. While in ancient civilizations a true “victim’s just system” was in place, there were no authorities to turn for help in enforcing the law. Victims and their families were left to fend for themselves and seek their own form of punishment for the crimes committed against them.

    course. In my final essay I will discuss things I found to be most significant about restorative justice, my memorable lessons and how I can use the tools I have gained from this course in the future. Restorative justice focuses on the harm done to victims and offenders taking responsibility for their actions (Elizabeth Elliott, 2011). I find taking responsibility for one’s actions to be something that stands out about restorative justice. Rather than placing blame on the offender restorative…

    Punishment is not the only remedy for young offenders, since crime is often a cry for help and punishment-focused approaches prevent individuals from understanding the implications of their actions through a victim 's perspective (Choi, Green, and Gilbert 337). Policies and practices for youth should fulfill more than entrapment and punishment, providing a firm rationale for restorative justice (337). Crimes committed by young individuals are often minor, first-time acts which can be mediated…

Many people argue that men and women experience victimization at equal rates despite men usually being stronger and more powerful. This form of violence can happen at any time and can be completely unexpected by the victim as well as by friends or family members close to the victim. Intimate partner violence can produce severe short and long-term…
