Natalie Davies is a thirty-eight-year-old single mother of two—an eleven-year-old daughter, Brandi, and a seven-year-old third grader, Jenny. Natalie married young and never attended college. After her divorce four years ago, she went back to school and obtained a certificate in paralegal studies. After returning to the workforce, she was motivated by others, as well as her modest salary, to return to school to work on her bachelor’s degree. She tells family and friends that she wants to be a role model for her daughters and also wants to be able to provide for their college education when the time comes.<br /><br />Natalie decided to enroll in an online program to accommodate her work schedule and hectic family life that includes spending as much time as possible with her daughters, while also making time for herself. Natalie has hopes of working toward a master’s degree, possibly in counseling. Because of her two daughters and interest in working with people, she has decided to pursue an undergraduate degree in psychology.<br /><br />A week after classes started, there was a commotion on Natalie’s block. Two police cruisers were at a house down the street, along with an unmarked police car. Natalie did not know the neighbor who lived there very well. It was another single mother with three young children. Natalie learned that the woman was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. Her three children were placed in foster care while the woman waited for trial, or could find the money to post her bond.<br /><br />Apparently, the woman was using painkillers that she had purchased from an undercover police officer. She had injured her back several years ago and became addicted to the pills. Although her injury no longer bothered her, she continued to use the painkillers. Her mood would fluctuate if she did not get the pills and she would at times take out her anger on the children. When using the pills, she was disoriented and would at times jeopardize her children’s safety. She wanted to go into rehab but could not afford the treatment.<br /><br />Natalie cannot decide who the victim in this crime is. Are the victims the children, the people without insurance, or society in general? Natalie’s daughters asked her why the neighbor was arrested and her children were in foster care away from their “mommy?”<br /><br /> <br /><br />Research the concept of “victimless crime” using the textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet. Select two resources for use in your discussion. Be sure that you have the following types of resources:<br /><br />A news media report of what may be considered a victimless crime, such as the given example.<br />A scholarly, peer-reviewed article on the type of crime covered in your selected news media report. The peer-reviewed article should identify potential costs of the crime to society as well as intervention approaches.<br />Based on the scenario, and drawing on your readings and observations, respond to the following:<br /><br />Do you think the term victimless crime is misleading? Why or why not?

A former Kansas City police detective offers a reality check that differs from most television cop shows. Jenkins tells it like it was during several actual criminal investigations where detectives were monitoring suspects. Through a series of short stories depicting different methods of police surveillance, the author lets us in on the behind-the-scenes drama on some key investigations. Contrary to television depictions, the drama is punctuated by some long, boring days of watching and listening. But most of the time, the good guys win.

<b>They thought about their evil fantasy for months. Then wound up like clockwork toys ... they acted.</b><br /><br />In April 1997, pretty, 22-year-old Jacine Gielinski stopped her car at a red light in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She had no idea that the two young men looking at her from the car next to hers would in that moment decide she would be their target for unspeakable horrors.<br /><br />George Woldt and Lucas Salmon were an unlikely pair of best friends, much less killers. Woldt was a fast-talking, well-dressed ladies’ man who boasted of his sexual conquests. Salmon was deeply religious, and socially misfit, obsessed with losing his virginity. <br /><br />Woldt was the leader, Salmon his willing follower, but neither had been in serious trouble with the law. However, inspired by the cult movie, A Clockwork Orange, with its dystopian violence, they fantasized for months what it would be like to abduct, rape, torture and murder a woman. Then, aroused by watching ultra-violent pornography, they decided to act upon their evil thoughts.<br /> <br />Revised and updated with a new afterword from the author, A CLOCKWORK MURDER recounts the steps that led to an unthinkable crime and its impact on a community, as well as the friends and especially the parents of an innocent young woman who paid with her life for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.<br /><br /><em>From The True Crime Library Of New York Times Bestselling Author Steve Jackson</em><br />

<h2><b>Rodney James Alcala, an American serial killer whose true crime story will give you chills He was a killing machine…</b></h2><br /><br />Throughout the late 1960’s and 1970’s, a man roamed the streets with a camera. While photography was a “hip “hobby to have at the time, this man was different from the rest. He asked young girls and women to pose for him, often nude, and a few of them he even molested and murdered.<br /><br />It all started with Tali Shapiro, an eight-year-old girl that was saved by a Good Samaritan who witnessed her climb into a vehicle driven by a man. The entire scene seemed off to the man, who called police shortly after he followed the vehicle to an apartment complex. By the time the police arrived on the scene, Tali Shapiro was almost dead, and Rodney Alcala had retreated out the back door. He was apprehended for the rape and torture of Tali Shapiro, but he was released on parole not long after he was convicted and imprisoned.<br /><br />His newfound freedom came at a cost to many women and children.<br /><br />Dubbed the <b>Dating Game Killer</b> because he was on an episode of the Dating Game show in 1978, Rodney Alcala’s body count is still rising. He kept photographs of his victims, and police found over 1,700 in a storage locker Alcala had rented. Some of the pictures Alcala took have been released by NYPD (New York) and the HBPD (California) in hope to identify possible victims of this psychopath.<br /><br /><h2><b>This book is about the victims' investigators know about, and it gives a small insight into the life of one of the most vicious and active serial killers America has ever known.<b></b></b></h2><b><b><br /><br /><b>Many believe that Alcala may have killed over a 100 women and girls.</b><br /><br />Warning, information found in this book may be too graphic for some to handle.<br /><br /><h2> Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited!</h2><br /><br /><h2><b>Scroll back up and click the BUY NOW button on the top right hand side of this page</b></h2><br /></b></b>

Ghost ship inspired Sherlock Holmes creator: When the brigantine Mary Celeste was first found abandoned and drifting helplessly in the Azores, just off the coast of Portugal in December 1872, speculative news of the crew being abducted or murdered by aliens, huge sea monsters, or pirates, no doubt inspired an inquisitive young Scottish schoolboy, Arthur Conan Doyle, to eventually write his own fictional tale. Then aged just 13, and setting his mind to a medical career, it would be another 12-years before he finally put pen to paper whilst working as a surgeon on a whaling ship bound for an Arctic adventure. His story about the incident, entitled: J. Habakuk Jephson’s Statement, was first published anonymously in the Cornhill magazine in January 1884 and created a worldwide sensation, promoting news about the bizarre abandonment. Fiction however, soon became interpreted as fact, with newspapers and journals worldwide promoting his tale and creating an unstoppable roller coaster of intrigue about this mysterious ghost ship, and what was thought to have really happened. In later years, it has been compared to Orson Welles, when in October 1938, his dramatic reading of a 62-minute radio play in New York based on HG Wells science fiction novel – The War of the Worlds – suddenly created a mass panic with many thousands of listeners believing every word. Although Conan Doyle changed the names of crew members, and some other varied details, including altering the ‘Mary Celeste’ to the ‘Marie Celeste,’ he still retained the name of the rescue ship Dei Gratia, and introduced many fairly similar facts that helped persuade a rather gullible audience. If he had not written his own fictional account, readers though would have been completely unaware of several other similar abandonments and ghost ships, which occurred around the same period, and captivated audiences, all eager for more news about these extraordinary events. And just a year later after publishing his story, the real Mary Celeste finally ended her career in dramatic style, after she was deliberately wrecked on a coral reef off Haiti by a skipper, who had become embroiled in a fraudulent conspiracy. So perhaps it was a fresh inquiry and a revelation of other previous dramatic events that put Conan Doyle back in the spotlight, but whatever the reason, his story was again accepted as genuine with even Admiralty officials forced to review their original findings. The real incident would have been worthy of investigation by his notable Sherlock Holmes character, a fictional detective, introduced just three years later. This book examines the whole incident, before, during and after, and compares fact with fiction to analyse the brilliant workings of Conan Doyle, who used many of his experiences to later develop some memorable characters.
