Tonight we discuss crimes of passion and why they happen?


A crime of passion, or crime passionnel, in popular usage, refers to a violent crime, especially murder, in which the perpetrator commits the act against someone because of sudden strong impulse such as sudden rage or heartbreak rather than as a premeditated crime.

The act, as is suggested by the name (crime passionnel - from French language) is often associated with the history of France. However, such crimes have existed and continue to exist in most cultures.

No one would say this is right, but are these crimes understandable given that human emotions can be deadly?Have you ever hurt a partner that cheated on you?

Let's chop it up!!
