...Causes of Violent Crime Violent crime is a difficult topic to understand from an internal perspective, as many individuals do not associate themselves with violence and thus cannot understand the reasoning of the perpetrator. For this reason, criminologists and psychologists have suggested many theories for the causes of violent crime. Prior to understanding these schools of thought, my own personal view on the matter was that people who are driven to violent crime do so because of behavioural factors stemming from a negative home environment. For example, I felt that a lack of impulse control is important in violent crime, as studies have shown that it can be (Roy & Linnoila, 1988... ), and...

Introduction: While it is often believed that drugs are major stimulants for crimes and it is also possible that crimes may, in turn lead to enhanced supply and use of drugs. Although criminologists and medical practitioners have alluded to drug induced crimes, solid evidence to establish cause and effect theory between crime and drugs may not be forthcoming. Therefore, a more localised study would be necessary to work out the nexus between how drugs and crimes underpin each other.
