For example, the Law Commission declared the homicide legislation in England and Wales a mess and in need of review (Law Commission, 2005a). Concurring with the Law Commission, Blom-Cooper and Terrence Morris (2004) argue that the current distinctions in English law between murder, manslaughter and infanticide should be abolished. Blom-Cooper and Morris focus on the idea of malice aforethought, necessary for a murder conviction, and view it as a completely misleading concept. They suggest that the concept of ‘moral-guilt’ implies that where there has been no direct intention to kill (that is, an absence of explicit malice), but a death(s) has occurred through the gross recklessness of another person (for example, corporate neglect of employees’ working conditions, drunken driving) then this could be considered more heinous than if malice is explicit but either minimal or short lived although a death has been the outcome (for example, during a drunken fight, or a lover’s quarrel).
27 would in the twenty-first century be described as ‘terrorist outrages’ that he decreed if the perpetrator of such a killing (a murdrum) were not found then a hundred people who lived where the death had taken place were required to pay a fine, also known as a murdrum. It wasn’t until 1340 that this collective punishment for unsolved homicides was rescinded. In English Law, the legal category of homicide includes the offences of murder, infanticide and manslaughter, whereas in some parts of the USA homicides that are justifiable (killing in self-defence) are demarcated from those that are unjustifiable.
Furthermore, as with many types of statistical ‘realities’, it is a matter of interpretation as to what ‘truth’ is being expounded, particularly when politicians, journalists or other partisan groups are the interpreters. Take these three examples, all dealing with murder in Colombia. First, the BBC News used the following headline on 24 April 2003: ‘Colombia murder rate soars’ (BBC News 2003a). This news item mentions data provided by the Permanent Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, a group based in Colombia.
