Violence Begets

Good link via Psychology and Crime News to a study of the “tipping points” for violent offenders, the “events and consequences of action” that move potential offenders into or out of violent careers. Apparently also goes into detail for some offenders and the stories they give of their lives, replete with tons of violence that would likely turn most of us psycho. Sounds like it fits well with the “crime in the lifecourse” literature and certainly worth reading to understand how punishments might or might not be effective.
