My interest in forensic psychology does not focus only on the men and women who choose to engage in violent crime. While I am curious about what makes a person decide to become a child rapist or a murderer, the other personalities that are drawn into these tragedies fascinate me as well. A recent story on the CNN website features a mother who lost a daughter to violence but who also is receiving some criticism for her own decisions and mindset.

Five-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan was kidnapped last...

I love puzzles – especially jigsaw puzzles. Right now, I have several 1000 piece puzzles that have been recently assembled in my closet to prove it! I generally like beautiful puzzle photographs of the ocean, beach, or outdoors. I find it relaxing and fun, and it takes my mind off of whatever novel I'm currently working on. I'd like to try my hand at 5,000 or 10,000 piece puzzles, but I never have the room or time to tackle this size of project.

Did you know that one of the definitions of "jig...

While fascinated with all aspects of forensic psychology, I have long held a particular interest in the pathology of serial killers. Readers of this blog will find quite a few posts that address specific characteristics of such criminals, such as their handwriting, their demographic profile, and the way in which they choose their victims. There is no doubt that the acts these men and women (mostly men) commit are horrific, and this seeming lack of regard for any sense of decency and humanity ...

Bengal Book ReviewsReviews By Samantha Kellenberger


Review:

Chase has really outdone herself with the first in a series of cop thrillers. Compulsion is nothing but the quintessential page-turner that every reader hopes for when they first open a new book. Comparable to the likes of Lawrence Sanders' Deadly Sins series, Compulsion and the books to follow are sure to generate a loyal following. The main character, Emily, is smart, cunning, full of piss and vinegar along with a boatload of girl...

Which of these two popular statements more closely defines your opinion on the use of guns?

"Guns don't kill people; people kill people."

"Guns belong only in the hands of the police and the military, not with private citizens."

The text of the Second Amendment , which was ratified as part of the Constitution in 1791, reads as follows:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

In a recent post , I questioned the reason that the crime dramas we watch on television mostly take place in Los Angeles and New York City, with Miami and Chicago getting nods every now and again. Is there an assumption among viewers that crime only takes place in these big cities, or that violence that occurs in other parts of the country don't matter?
Along those same lines, I came across a statistic of which I was already aware but that I had not given much thought recently—a FBI Behavioral...
