The Buddy System: The Number of Perpetrators, Psychopathy, Violence, and Motivation in Youth-Perptrated Homicides

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Homicide is, arguably, one of the most extreme types of criminal behaviour. Despite its clear importance, relatively little quantitative research has been conducted on youth homicide. Recent Canadian adult-perpetrated homicide research (e.g., M. Juodis, M. Woodworth, S. Porter, & L. ten Brinke, in press; M. Woodworth & S. Porter, 2002) indicates that homicides can be reliably differentiated across particular offence characteristics (i.e., motivation, psychopathy, the number of perpetrators, and the level of violence). Therefore, the purpose of the present paper is to examine Canadian youth-perpetrated homicide according to these four variables. Results are discussed in terms of prevention and apprehension.
