  • Today’s society is fascinated by crime. Crime and deviance have taken on a cultural significance they never previously had. As a result, crime is a hot topic in the media and one that leads people to be continually exposed to criminal events, portrayals of those who commit them, and the suffering of victims.

Bias crimes are designed to intimidate the victim and members of the victim’s community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable, and unprotected by the law. Failure to address this unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to explode into widespread community tension. The damage done by hate crimes, therefore, cannot be measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and cents.

The dastardly deeds are often outrageous and sometimes hair-raising, but we can’t seem to rip our eyes from the wreckage criminals make of their own lives and the lives of their victims. The dark side of human behavior both repulses and fascinates us.

  • In the 1950s and 1960s intellectual discussions of crime were dominated by the opinion that criminal behavior was caused by mental illness and social oppression, and that criminals were helpless “victims.” A book by a well- known psychiatrist was entitled The Crime of Punishment (see Menninger [1966]). Such attitudes began to exert a major influence on social policy, as laws changed to expand criminals’ rights. These changes reduced the appre- hension and conviction of criminals, and provided less protection to the law-abiding population....
