Violence and Damages

Violence and Damages

(p.61) Chapter 3 Violence and Damages
Criminals and Victims
Stanford University Press

Crime victims experience the consequences of crime directly in the form of physical injury, emotional trauma, and lost property. This chapter examines two particular consequences of crime: physical violence and monetary damages. It studies the connection between criminal actions, extraction of loot, the possibility of victim resistance and the incidence of victim injury. It begins with a conceptual analysis of commercial robberies by applying aspects of the criminal planning model to help frame the essential logic of criminal violence and damages. It then moves on to modeling outcomes relating to the incidence of victim injury and the amount of money actually stolen using probit analysis and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) data on convenience store robberies.

Keywords:   victims, crime, physical injury, emotional trauma, lost property, physical violence, monetary damage, violence, damages, National Institute of Justice
