Here you will meet several children helped by Cornerstone who suffered from tragic losses and tragic circumstances. This chapter is essentially practical in its orientation to technique, describing several forms of treatment of bereaved children, with a minimum of theoretical essay. Probably the best definition of "mourning" for our current purposes is, "the totality of reaction to the loss of a loved object."

    In 1982, a foreign diplomat was assassinated a few blocks from a Federal law enforcement agency office. There were no computers, cell phones, or pagers. Within 18 months, investigators made 18 arrests and put two major terrorist organizations out of business. This article will explain how this was accomplished with no digital technology.

    This article will discuss the attempted management of a convicted cooperating witness who continued his cons while working with the government. He was a constant challenge with many interesting events. These types of people do not change their personalities just because they are "cooperating". The first time I met him he said, "You'll like me in 15 minutes". He was right.

    Homicide cases in which the victim cannot be identified are difficult to solve and profile. This article will discuss the importance of victimology in a homicide investigation.

    Violent Crime has increased dramatically in the United States in the past 50 years. Many of these crimes involve serial homicide and rape which are especially challenging for investigators and experts since the perpetrators are usually experienced at what they do and don't leave many clues at the crime scene (if it can even be found). Plus, these crimes have a tendency to gain a lot of notoriety from the news media and public which results in intense pressure on the police department or investigating agency to solve these crimes quickly.

    6/5/2014 · Psychology
    Many times investigators and experts are confronted with cases which are equivocal: uncertain or questionable. For example, a death appears to be suicide but may actually be murder staged to appear to be a suicide. There are also cases which appear to be suicide but are actually accidental deaths. This article will provide a questionnaire for investigators and experts when confronted with these types of cases. The questionnaire is provided to attempt to determine the mental state of the victim just prior to his or her death and whether or not the victim was suicidal.

    5/8/2014 · Criminology
    John Delorean was a very successful executive at General Motors and was known for developing the Pontiac GTO, the Pontiac Firebird, Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevrolet Vega, and the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car, which was later featured in the 1985 film Back to the Future. In 1982 Delorean was arrested by the FBI for drug trafficking. "The alleged drug trafficking was supposedly an attempt to raise funds for his struggling company, which declared bankruptcy that same year. He successfully defended himself against the drug trafficking charges, showing that his alleged involvement was a result of entrapment by federal agents". Delorean was found not guilty on August 16, 1984.

    This article will focus on how to research FBI policies and procedures for the operation of informants. These documents are available to the public through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIPA). Researching FBI records can be very difficult and frustrating since many of the records are not searchable once you find the record you desire. Lawyers who need help researching these records may find that it is more cost effective to hire an expert to find the information they need.

    Many young people make bad decisions which may follow them the rest of their lives and close doors to great opportunities as they progress through the work force. The bad decisions which seem like a "fling" at the time now have disastrous consequences when the young person has an interest in a job that requires a security clearance with a background investigation and polygraph.

    Violent Crime has increased dramatically in the United States in the past 50 years. Many premises liability cases involve violent crimes that could have been prevented if the landowner had taken the appropriate precautions based on industry standards. Foreseeability is important in determining whether violent crime could have been predicted based on past violent events. This information is easily obtained due to advances in computer technology. The public can now access this information in most locations throughout the United States.

    False allegations are seen in several types of cases and are very problematic for police since extensive investigation must be conducted to corroborate the victim's allegations. A great deal of resources can be wasted in these investigations since the alleged crime never took place. One study indicated that false rape allegations constituted 41% of all forcible rape cases in one police department. There are indicators of false allegations that may help police and experts determine whether a crime took place.

    10/15/2013 · Criminology
    Your personal security is based on your life style, and personal decisions. The Risk Continuum will assist you in determining your risk for becoming the victim of a violent crime. Minor changes in your life style may have a major impact on whether or not you will become a violent crime victim. There are many risk factors that you should consider when trying to reduce your level of risk.

    Victimology is defined as an assessment of everything that can be known about the victim of a crime, and is a critical tool for the investigator and experts which can lead to the quick solution of a criminal case or the resolution of a premises liability matter involving a violent crime.

    9/5/2013 · Law Enforcement
    Offenders will sometimes stage a violent crime because they know that they need to re-direct the investigation. The problem for some of them is that they are unfamiliar with crime scene investigation procedures and may make themselves more obvious as a suspect.

    8/19/2013 · Law Enforcement
    Defendant was observed driving a vehicle with a cracked windshield and a broken driver's side rear tail lens. He was stopped by the police for equipment violations and was asked various questions which indicated that he might be transporting money from an illegal drug transaction. Police asked if they could search the car and the defendant refused.

    The assessment of victim risk by an expert witness in a premises liability case may become critical to the successful outcome of the case. This article provides a Daubert style methodology for determining whether the victim was at low, moderate, or high risk for a crime of violence.

    Isn't it interesting how the courts recognize taint in so many different contexts?1 We have an illegal search by the police and everything found during the illegal search becomes "fruit of the poisonous tree"-it is said to be tainted. The Houston Police Department's Crime Lab does not observe proper sterile procedures in handling DNA and the specimens are contaminated-they are said to be tainted. We have a lineup where the crime victim sees one White guy, three Hispanics, and two Blacks. The identification of the White guy is said to be tainted, the product of a suggestive or improper lineup.

A considerable portion of this time was also devoted to researching the practices in Kenya.

    Secret Wounds is the long-awaited final segment of Lightfoot-Klein's trilogy. Once again, the subject of her impassioned treatise is the genital mutilation of non-consenting minors, whose practice has not only been culturally embedded in Africa over millennia, but which has been medicalized in the United States on male, female, and intersex children since the mid-eighteen hundreds.

    Here is the intriguing story of one woman's mid-life flight from her stultified, middle-class, psychologically crippling, and unfulfilled existence into a world of high adventure, danger, hardship, and endurance, which ultimately leads her to autonomy and recognition. In her new book, A Woman's Odyssey Into Africa, Hanny Lightfoot-Klein chronicles three year-long solo backpacking treks through remote areas of sub-Saharan Africa. In the process, she discovers the mainsprings of strength within herself as she follows her own drummer, finding the courage to face the darkest and most secret convolutions of her own mind.
    Hanny Lightfoot-Klein
    This unique volume focuses on the psychosexual and social effects of female genital mutilation, an ancient, deeply entrenched custom saturating the larger part of Africa. Over a period of six years, Author Hanny Lightfoot-Klein trekked through outlying areas of Sudan, Kenya, and Egypt, where she lived with a number of African families. What she learned by way of in-depth personal interviews and firsthand observation has enabled her to add a previously unknown and often astonishing dimension to our knowledge of ritual practices and human sexuality.
    Hanny Lightfoot-Klein
    The object of this book is to give voice to the multitudes of human beings who exist behind the statistics on genital surgery performed on them when they were non-consenting children, and who have long endured their suffering in silence, for reasons of suppression, desperation, or shame. I have endeavored to create an understanding of the connection between genital surgery perpetrated on infants and children too young to be capable of meaningful consent or effective protest, and of the frequently cataclysmic diminution in quality of life that they have suffered as a consequence.

    Forensic psychological evaluations have become a valuable resource for the criminal justice system by addressing important forensic questions. For instance, assessing risk for violence can help courts make appropriate decisions on issues such as sentencing, granting privileges, and community reintegration. If an individual is assessed to be a high risk for future violence, a judge has grounds to order a more restrictive setting compared to someone who is a lower risk for recidivism. By tailoring court decisions based on accurate psychological evaluations, the community is safer while the defendant's rights are also protected.

    When minors violate a criminal statute, they enter the juvenile justice system rather than the adult criminal system. Although differences exist, both court systems recognize the competency to stand trial law. Just like adults, it would be unfair for juveniles to proceed in the legal process if they were deemed incompetent to stand trial because they did not understand the court proceedings against them or could not adequately assist in their defense. The purpose of this book is to educate minors about the juvenile justice system and prepare them for their day in court.

    The correctional system has become the largest provider of mental health care in our society. Due to the prevalence of mental disabilities in the criminal justice system, many defendants are found Incompetent to Stand Trial. However, defendants do not usually understand what it means to be incompetent, let alone what to do about it. The purpose of this guidebook is to help defendants better understand why they were found incompetent, what they can do about it, and how to get the best possible outcomes.
