From a research, victims are mostly involved in the commission of many crimes. The exclusion of such cases is one which the victim is innocent as in cases of accidents or cases where a victim is a passerby and is killed on behalf of the anticipated victim. The cases of the victim precipitation are the cases where the victims began showing and using the deadly weapons. An example is when a person A hits person B using a blunt tool which can cause the result to injury and person B is also having a weapon which he uses to kill person A. From this scenario, it is clear that the victim is the one who started the confrontation. Minor quarrels do not lead to this theory except in the extreme situations. The victim’s precipitated crimes usually occur in cases such as robbery with violence, rape as well as assault ( Muftić & Hunt, 2013) . There are different reasons as to the cause of offenders ending up to cause the homicides. To begin with, the offender must be aggravated by the actions of the objectives of the victims. In this situation, the victim usually acts in self-defense which results in the murder of the offender. Other situations may be in the situational or the accumulated anger.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
