    Violence within family differs in significant respects from criminal assultiveness. Failure to differentiate these two forms of violence contributes to the ineffectiveness of the criminal justice system. Love relationships account for the majority of homicides; however, the fiction of the criminal as the killer persists because of the entertainment media. Prevention requires comprehension of the causes and construction of typology of violence.
