Jan 2018 Dear Dr Crime

Dr. Crime is a pseudonym for a social scientist holding a Ph.D. degree in sociology and in criminology. He has worked in all major parts of the criminal justice system. Drop him a note at the website www.keepkidshome.net if you or your child is in trouble, he may be able to help, give him a call (252-339-0000).

Dear Dr. Crime: If I have a few drinks I know when I should not drive and most folks are that way. We should not be arrested if we get a bit drunk and drive home. What do you think? Harassed Husband

Dear Drinking Buddy: I can get who came down on your case or you may have been arrested You are dead wrong.
Research from the US Dept of Justice tells us that every day an average of 28 people in the United States are killed by drunks like you must be. That is one death every 51 minutes . When you mix drugs with booze its awful. If you are drunk you alter your brain’s ability to make good judgements. Your sight and coordination are impacted. If you have anything to drink, get someone to take you home, don’t drive.

Dear Dr. Crime: The Indians are pretty well off as crime goes, aren’t they? Billy

Dear Billy: How about Native Americans rather than Indians? They were here first. And, the arrival of others has not been so great for them. Research shows that 4 out of 5 of them have been violent crime victims in their lifetimes.

Dear Doc Crime: If some bum came at me, I could take him down, but I don’t have any idea how to protect myself from internet crimes. What do I do? Before the Internet guy

Dear Older fellow: I know how you feel. My dissertation professor told me he would provide me with top technology to type my dissertation and handed me a bottle of White-Out. Times have changed. I suggest you contact Margrita Harrison, our NCDJ Telemarketing Fraud Investigator and ask for their wonderful pamphlets on avoiding scams and identity theft. Our NCDJ is an agency we can be proud of, and they will respond to you. Also the current issue of BottomLine Personal has an article for you, “Beware These Linkedin Scams”. It also discusses Netflix e-mail scams. I encourage all our readers to see BottomLine Personal.

Dear Dr. Crime: My daughter does not seem to be able to control herself as I taught her. Can you help? Angry Parent

Dear Average Parent: Research in the Journal of Criminal Justice that involved a large number of kids in many countries concluded that teaching self-control is very complex, and parenting with adolescents has less impact that we hope. Culture is important, and boys have less self-control than girls. Keep trying and make the outcomes of her behavior clear to her but don’t get mad.

Dear Dr. Crime: Tell us again how we can help you? Public

Dear Public: First (and this is for everyone) see our web based, anonymous, private, no one knows who you are, site: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BKYB9GT
All readers please help with this.

Dear Dr. Crime: I hear about Churches developing plans to protect themselves after the Church shooting we saw on TV. What should we do? Rev.

Dear Rev. : I did not foresee this. Our fine Sheriff Perry in Camden County, NC is helping our Churches. Call your local Sheriff and ask if training is available. A recent report on this in the Virginian Pilot indicates it is not uncommon to be prepared, and suggest for more information on Church Security call Sheriff Shelby White at 252 426-5615. The Pew Research Center reports Church membership is dropping. Yet, research clearly shows the impact of religion is to reduce deviance and crime.

Dear Dr. Crime: Do we have more hate now than in the past? Scared Lady

Dear Scared. You have a right to be apprehensive. I encourage everyone to be careful, report unusual events, and know change is happening. The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism (California State University) reports that hate crimes rose about 5 percent from 2015 to 2016. That research is strong, and concerns individual crimes.

Also, if your child is a “youthful offender” and- or having problems with drugs, Dr. Crime can offer confidential suggestions on how to work with the criminal justice system. Or, a formal criminological report for a court or other authority may help. For more information see www.keepkidshome.net or email drcrime@keepkidshome.net
