Violent Crimes: Assault, Murder, Rape, Hate Crimes

Violent crimes are those where a person threatens to use violent force upon, intentionally attempts to, or inflicts harm upon another. It includes crimes where violence is the objective, or a means to an end (in the cases of murder and burglary, for instance). These crimes can include acts committed with and without weapons. They fall into both categories of misdemeanors and felonies and are under the jurisdiction of federal, state and juvenile courts. Generally, violent crimes carry the most serious punishments. The seriousness of the punishment correlates with the injuries inflicted upon the victim, and takes into account whether weapons or guns were used, and if previous convictions exist.
