Product Description
 
Domestic Crime focuses on the type of crime that affects more people than any other - whether it be violence in the home (both physical and psychological) or damage to property. Using true cases as examples, it describes the variety of criminal behaviors that police and criminologists label as domestic crime: angry men turning on their families and lovers; abandoned women taking bloody revenge on former partners; a neighbour who was a minor nuisance is transformed into a deadly, threatening menace; a child is abused at home, and then killed. Local gangs can be nothing more than neighbourhood pests with their petty thefts and vandalism, but when things get rough and someone dies, childhood pranks turn to murder.
