crime is linked to mental health

alicechew

Many people would like to place the blame for people's violent instincts on unstable or unhealthy mental wellbeing. However research has shown that this is not necessarily always the case. Most people who commit violent acts, who are thought to be mentally ill, they may be but their violent acts come from a place of displaced anger or emotional issues. In a study of crimes committed by people with serious mental disorders, only 7.5% were directly related to symptoms of mental illness, according...

Should we ReColonize Africa or at least reconsider doing it? (Minus Slavery of course)

TheTrueLuxemburger

Why the hell would you want to Re colonize Africa?! You might ask , well I have a simple idea which works like this currently much of Africa is starving and dieing of disease , they don't come as well along as we Westerners do , Africa looks pretty similar as it did 500 years ago (Not really I know but hear me out) They still have lots of tribes and tribal disputes in Politics , "democratic" is not what I would describe an average African Country as they usually abuse their powers.

Necrophilia should be legal

MonochromeEffigy
Bill_Henly

I've done a debate like this before, but it's been several months, so I thought I'd try it again.I strongly believe that necrophilia ought to be legal. I will admit, I am a necrophiliac, so I am somewhat biased regarding this subject. I've heard the arguments against the legalization of necrophilia, and I've heard the proposed solutions to the problems. I'm going to expound upon what I believe to be the ideal system in which to practice necrophilia.

Should it be acceptable for non-black Americans to say nigger/nigga?

SalvatorePaterson

All the time I hear that it is socially unacceptable for nigga or nigger to be said by white person. There are several problems with this: 1. It's a violation of free speech: As long as you aren't calling someone it or using it in a insensitive or racist way that could be considered a hate crime, it should be protected under the 1st Amendment. 2. White-shaming: Although I feel for the victims of hate-crimes, racism in the United States is on a down-turn. I shouldn't be disallowed from saying...

Crimes are linked to mental health.

According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, those who are battling mental health are more inclined to commit injustice and illegal acts. In retribution, they develop four times more of a chance in encountering a mental health disorder, then one in public. Though many may argue that others classify one who's committed a crime to have a mental illness or dissorder, police officers detain one out of two that have a history of a mental illness/disorders, and the majority of the time will d...

Mental health and the criminal justice system have long been intertwined. Mental disorders in prison populations are up to four times higher than those in the general population. The media has, often represented this link in a negative way, leading to the perception that people committing certain types of offences are all mentally ill. Mental health and crime link as, people can not control themselves if they are mentally ill during the moment in time or the temptations. This is just unbearable...

Certain mental health issues are known to lead to destructive behaviour without the right treatment and support, which creates a direct link to crime. Poor mental health related crimes can range from domestic violence to brutal acts of revenge as a way to lash out due to the offender's internal feelings of anger and fear....

Crime and Mental Illness are linked

ellacashin
elisebaker

People with mental illnesses generally have very unpredictable behavioural patterns and are associated with an excessive risk of potentially snapping at any time, for no particular reason. Being a mentally ill patient means that you have the ability to become triggered by a range of numerous factors, such as stress, anxiety, loud noises, feeling vulnerable, or even feeling threatened by other people. These factors can cause a patient to react aggressively and in the form of violence. Although, u...
