Male Violence - State Silence: These and Other Tragedies of the 20th Century
G. Kristian Miccio
University of Denver Sturm College of Law
Journal of Gender, Race & Justice, Vol. 5, p. 339, 2001
Using two vignettes, "ripped from the headlines," Professor Miccio raises the idea that in dealing with male intimate violence, perhaps the appropriate methodology is to involve the community as opposed to the penal system. Drawing from South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Council's. Miccio weaves a story about law, justice and conceptions of accountability which can be used to understand how the criminal "justice" system has failed survivor and community alike. While Miccio does not endorse restorative justice, as currently conceived by its U.S. proponents, she does show the reader how a new paradigm is necessary if the collective "we," embraces it's responsibility for male intimate violence.
