The word criminology was not defined until 1885 by Raffaele Garofalo. Even though the word was not coined until 1885, criminology and criminal justice have been in society for many years. Adler et al. (2018) explain that the earliest code of law known by society was the code of Hammurabi in 1972. Throughout these years, there have been many criminologists, theorists, and other important individuals that have shared their ideas of criminology and the meaning of criminal justice.
Domestic violence is an ongoing issue in the United States today. Violence with an intimate partner can occur in many forms. These include financial, physical, and emotional abuse. Any form of abuse can have a negative impact on victims and witnesses. Physical abuse can end in the loss of life, whether it is the victim’s life or the abuser's life. There are 1,200 individuals per hour that experience some form of abuse. Parsons (2014) explains that 40% of all homicides of women in each state involved intimate partner violence.
Individuals such as rapists, murders, or extremely violent criminals maybe someone who deserves to die. However, innocent victims such as children or teenagers do not deserve to die. When someone kills an individual who deserves to die, it can be classified as a “Good Murder.” Additionally, when an innocent victim dies, it can be classified as a “bad murder.” John Curra explains that in 1991 Wayne Wilson separated what he called “good” from “bad” murders. The distinction is based on the premise that individuals distinguish those who deserve to die (a good murder) from those who do not but are killed anyway (a bad murder).
Prologue Kat stood there. Her head held high with her sword held even higher. She finally felt free, felt alive. This was the moment she was dying for. Sadly, it may take her dying in the end to get it. As Katrina, Kat, stood tall on the broken stones the warm wind pushed against her. Making her brown curly hair fly up with it. Blood covered her purple and gold warriors outfit. The blood of her enemies, her friends, her loved ones, even strangers who fought alongside her. Her sun-kissed skin glowed as the light hit her in just the right way.

Our Court Systems
Our Court Systems and How They Differ There are three main parts to our criminal justice system. One of these three parts is the court system. There are many different types of courts in the criminal justice system including juvenile court, family court, criminal court, and civil court. While these courts have many similarities, they all differ. Each court has a different task and focuses on different cases.
My name is Mystic Rose May, most people call me Rosy. Some others call me Missy. Ever since I was little I could see and hear the supernatural. Those things most people think are fictional, they are not. At least to me, they are real. Ever since I was a little girl I saw ghosts. At least at the time, I thought they were ghosts or demons. Most were good, but others were not. I could feel an evil presence when some were near. These ghosts, demons, here to wreak havoc on anything they could. Over the years I learned to block out these things I thought to be ghosts. I was too afraid to deal with them.
A theory is an idea that is used to explain something. An example of a theory would be Darwin’s theory of evolution, or Darwinism. According to Charles Darwin, random mutations constantly change all living things. (Masci 747) This mutation can explain the theory of evolution. In 1859, Darwin published a book, On the Origin of Species. Darwin’s book focuses on his theory of evolution. Religious individuals, including teachers and scientists, doubted Darwin’s theory. (Masci 747) Since certain teachers are in disbelief of Darwin’s theory, this sparked a debate on what to teach future generations. We should not confuse facts with our beliefs and opinions. We need to teach kids about Darwin's theory of evolution.
Today, pornography is everywhere, even in public libraries. It is possible to view pornography anywhere, whether it is in books, movies, or the world wide web. Pornography is very easily accessible through the internet. Many people who like to view pornography use public libraries to search for sexual images or information. This is an enormous problem for many individuals because they feel it is a very private subject. In the 1990s, only a few libraries used software filters to block library patrons from viewing pornography. Libraries everywhere should use software filters to stop their patrons from using their computers to view pornography.
