Are All Men Pedophiles? [electronic resource]: An Inquiry Into Human Sexuality and Its Expression

Focusing primarily on the physical attractiveness of post-pubescent underage teenagers to certain men and women, this controversial documentary argues that pedophilia is not unnatural; criminal and immoral, yes, at different times and in different places, but not unnatural. The film's broad scope allows ample room to unpack the heavily freighted term in order to consider psychological, legal, societal, historical, cultural, biological, and evolutionary points of view. Testimony of a childhood victim of pedophilia brings the discussion back from the intellectual realm to the lived reality of sexual abuse perpetrated by adults on the young, and interviews with an offending female pedophile and a non-offending male pedophile are included as well. Are All Men Pedophiles? is an important [...]

Home Is Where the Heart Lies [electronic resource]

The fact is that most offenders do not travel very far to commit their crimes, says Professor David Canter. "Like you and me, their home is where their heart lies." In this program, Canter makes his point through the case of British TV personality Jill Dando, who was murdered on her doorstep by a man who lived just a few streets away; the Railway Rapists, a pair of men who raped and, in two cases, murdered their way up and down a rail line that passed by perpetrator John Duffy's dwelling; and Jack the Ripper, who terrorized London's East End and probably resided there. A look at the Soho cholera epidemic of 1854, which was brought under control through the geographical mapping of Dr. John Snow, is also included.

Crime and Motion [electronic resource]

In 1981, Peter Sutcliffe (the Yorkshire Ripper) was convicted of killing 13 women and assaulting seven others. In 1994, Scottish serial killer Robert Black was convicted of abducting and murdering three girls. In 1996, Welsh serial killer Peter Moore (the Man in Black) was convicted of torturing and murdering four men. In this program, Professor David Canter examines serial murder involving travel near and far while explaining how the application of geographical profiling helped-or could have helped-bring these perpetrators to justice sooner rather than later.

Moving Targets [electronic resource]

Like any predatory animal, a serial criminal defines a territory through the predatory logic that guides his hunting. In this program, Professor David Canter illustrates the complexities of running a human predator to ground through three cases. The first, which occurred in Las Vegas, focuses on a teenager who was arrested for committing a crime spree that combined murderous assault, rape, and robbery; the second, which occurred in Canada, focuses on 36-year-old Garrett Young, who abducted prostitutes in St. John's, Newfoundland, and then raped, beat, and left them for dead in a rural area outside of the city; and the third, which occurred in Bath, England, focuses on a perpetrator dubbed the Batman Rapist, who struck at least 14 times.

Black Holes and Spider Webs [electronic resource]

Not all serial killers travel to commit their crimes; some lure their victims to their lair, where they are silenced forever. In this program, Professor David Canter uses the case of Fred and Rosemary West-a British husband/wife duo who cleverly concealed the bodies of no fewer than 13 girls and young women they tortured, sexually abused, and murdered-to explain how a black hole-like absence of victim bodies can itself provide insights into the whereabouts of a predator. The case of the Belgian serial killer and child pornographer Marc Dutroux is also exhibited, showing how a wide cluster of black holes can indicate the presence of a multi-person, web-like crime network.

Marauders and Commuters [electronic resource]

In the world of criminal investigation, a marauder is a serial predator who works from a centrally placed home base. A commuter, on the other hand, is one who travels to a locale in search of victims. What happens when commuting and marauding are combined? In this program, Professor David Canter compares and contrasts two commuter-marauders who perpetrated homicidal assaults on women: Frenchman Jacques Plumain (the Phantom), who marauded in Strasbourg, crossed the border into the German town of Kehl, and marauded some more, and Birmingham resident Adrian Babb, who crossed a highway into a different Birmingham neighborhood to commit his crimes.

Virtual Crime and the Future [electronic resource]

In the 21st century, "we are all becoming visible...in that other, parallel world of electronic records, databases, video films, and computer memories," says Professor David Canter. "Criminals who would've been hidden in the past are also becoming visible in this virtual world-provided we know how to look for them." In this program, Canter addresses the use of data mining to track the virtual and real-world movements of criminals. Case studies include the following: Simon Wadland of Northamptonshire, who, using only his telephone, terrified 11 women into mutilating themselves and was snared by his phone records; Londoner Edgar Pearce (the Mardi Gra Bomber), a terroristic extortionist who was tripped up through a sting involving a huge surveillance campaign; and Gary Ridgway (the Gree [...]

Criminal Conversations [electronic resource]

This program interviews criminals to learn how and why they commit crimes. In a segment on burglary and auto theft, criminals describe how they break into homes and cars, what keeps them out, what they look for, and where they find it. In a segment on fraud, fast-talking flim-flam men and women describe the most popular schemes and how they gain the trust of their victims. In a segment on rape, rapists reveal what they look for in a victim, and how to spot and discourage sexual predators. Rape survivors also explain the benefits of fighting back. Finally, the program looks at kidnapping and how to teach children to be safe without instilling fear, how to spot dangerous situations, and effective self-defense techniques.

Young, Armed, and Dangerous [electronic resource]

This program investigates the way that Fort Worth is trying to deter young offenders from a life of crime and a lifetime of prison by focusing on the social, economic, and psychological causes of violence. Mentors provided by the Tarrant County Advocate Program for offenders on probation are achieving noteworthy successes. The Capital Offenders Program, which offers group resocialization therapy to help offenders deal with the roots of their aggression, has substantially reduced recidivism rates among participating youth. Another program, as daring as it is progressive, brings convicts and victims face-to-face, to confront the impact and consequences of their violent crimes. The best way to reduce crime may simply be to replace despair with hope-and a vision of a future worth living.
