Storytime With Mom: A Genealogy of Rape

Storytime With Mom: A Genealogy of Rape | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
"If two people come together," my mother began, "who've never had any power except by the way of abuse, it's going to be bad. Both of us had power exerted over us as children. I eventually learned that as an adult, I was still doing the dance, seeking out abusive relationships. That doesn't mean it was my fault. But I played a role. And your father was abused by his father and, as an adult, he became a rage-aholic, exerting power over others."

Restorative Justice Extending Empathy Workshop One

Restorative Justice Extending Empathy Workshop One | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it

Program 

http://www.rj4all.info/content/restorative-justice-empathy-rehabilitation-globaly

 

The overarching theme is to explore what is state of the art in Restorative Justice (RJ), today and what are future ambitions for engagement with other disciplines.


The workshop will provide the opportunity to bring together academic researchers from the RJ, Theatre and Design professions who are concerned in their existing practice with building empathy. How empathy is built by each profession and the methods they use are likely to be the subject of lively discipline exchange.

I think that this wont be as effective as the article states. Due to the tasers price this will probably not see wide spread use to park rangers. slot of police departments do not have tasers. when a wildlife trooper gets out of a vehicle because of a bear disturbance i don't think their first idea is lets grab my taser its lets grab my shot gun that i know will work every time.

Thanks For the Net Neutrality, Oligarchs

"Net neutrality" will be the law of the land following the Federal Communications Commission's vote to reclassify broadband Internet services as public utilities. Please take some time this week to thank the outspoken citizens who made this possible. These heroes of the open Internet are regular folk, just like you and me, with names like Microsoft, eBay, Facebook, Google and Amazon. Congrats to a major industry on its lobbying victory!

This is hard to believe. Being a troubled youth, getting in constant trouble, you'd think this guy has tried many things that are not legal. Specially since he has the sources to pretty much do so. This is hard to believe, it really is. I'm sure he's consumed alcohol long before his 21st birthday.

The role of Empathy in Restorative Justice Processes

The role of Empathy in Restorative Justice Processes | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
Simon Baron-Cohen, a professor of developmental psychopathology at the University of Cambridge, recently wrote a book entitled “Zero degrees of empathy: a new theory of human cruelty”. While I have only had the opportunity to read reviews of this book, the comments have prompted me to think of the role of empathy in restorative justice processes.

For those of you who try to implement the principles of restorative practice into your daily lives and interactions with others, I wonder how frequently you think about empathy (see below for a definition). In many circles, we talk about the offender taking “responsibility” for his/her actions. In work and community contexts, we invite people to be “curious” about the other, to withhold judgment.

Teenager Arrested for Encouraging Friend to Commit Suicide

A teenager in Massachusetts is being charged with involuntary manslaughter, accused of encouraging a friend to go through with the act.
Rob Duke's insight:

Most cases aren't easy..this is an example of complex motives.

more...
DERRICK NELSON's comment, March 1, 2:09 PM
A case such as this derives from social disorganization. The attribute of conflicting social values (i.e., Thou shall not commit suicide) from the theory is well exemplified. The encouragement from Michelle to go against the respect for life is considered an antisocial behavior probably stemming from her environment.
Jessica Ramos's comment, Today, 4:41 AM
Suicide in teen aged people seems to be steadily rising. I believe suicide and bullying go hand in hand, since most recent cases of suicide being results of bullying. n a way this can be considered euthanasia, with the female suspect mentally, and possibly emotionally, aiding the male with his suicide. In today's world, human life holds no value to many people.
