The Dynamics of Threats to Kill
Free Course Preview
The entire judicial system has been desensitized to view threats to kill as simply a person’s constitutional right to free speech. Thus, threats to kill are often ignored. It is not until after a domestic violence or stalking related homicide has been committed that a threat is discovered and taken seriously.
For this reason, threats to kill must be evaluated for lethality and the rapid loss of conduct inhibitors, before a crime is committed. The evaluation of threats to kill has proven to be a significant step in the prediction and prevention of domestic violence and stalking related homicides.
