The Image in this template
The image that's being used on the criminal law template (Image:Justice12.jpg) doesnt have any source or copyright information. The uploader hasnt responded to requests for some, and so the image is now at a state where it can be speedily deleted, but rather than do that, would somone who is looking after the template perhaps have a look?

Please see the discussion on talk:regulatory offences for why this template needs to change the reference from regulatory offences to infraction. I will do this in about a day or so, after people have time to comment. Thesmothete 06:08, 17 February 2006 (UTC)
English criminal law
Hi I've done some major revamping to Template:Criminal defenses, Template:CrimPro and added Template:Criminal case and Template:Types of crime. Most of the criminal law pages have been changed to go to one of these but for the few stragglers I propose redirecting this page. I'll do this in the next few days if this page stays quiet.

The accompanying template includes "Pimping" and "Sexual offenses" both as crimes against persons, but neither of those seems to cover (at least to the extent that Prostitution lacks the temlate]] the crimes of prostitution or of solicitation for prostitution, which do exist despite the their non-universal criminality. Bad information design, and probably PoV.

The link for Pimping leads to pimp which is pretty messy in terms of presentation and doesn't directly discuss pimping as a criminal act including relevant laws etc.
I edited the template to hit on the major areas of criminal law... I'm thinking the naxbox need not be comprehensive, only robust, if you know what I mean. Foofighter20x (talk) 07:51, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
- Others to add, once a page is created for them (by themselves, that is): Defense of Others, Defense of Property, Defense of Dwelling, Effecting Lawful Arrest, Prevention of Felony, Public Authority, Domestic Authority. Foofighter20x (talk) 08:43, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Statutory rape is listed under "victimless crime" in the criminal law sidebar. While I can see there are instances in which it would be (for example, two minors who have consensual sex), generally statutory rape is used to describe an adult having sex with a minor, and indeed this is what the linked article largely covers. In that instance, the minor is unable to consent, and therefore it is rape, and there is a rape victim. I think it's very dangerous to categorise something like that as "victimless" and suggest it be moved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:53, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Why "Part of common law series"?
Is it implying that criminal law is a concept only in common law systems? What about other systems? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2606:6000:6787:CF00:A049:C09A:9FAD:9F40 (talk) 21:27, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Making the categories of the template collapsible?
The Criminal Law series template has become excessively long. To reduce its size should we make the categories collapsible? This will also make it short enough to re-add the series image while keeping it at a manageable size (why was it removed anyway?). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ireadandcheck (talk • contribs) 16:04, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
updating Victimless Crime section
I like to change some points and add one.
The entry from Revision as of 17:52, 18 June 2015 regarding masturbation as crime seems a bit odd, that's why i'd remove it and added exhibitionism.
Also removing suicide, since it's legal since the roman empire till the european union (see #Suicide legislation).
In only five states (of 193) worldwide are legal issues about the sale of sex toys. The Anti-Obscenity Enforcement Act could be a crime against humanity, but it's overal relevance is minimal (0,0064% / 6,4‰ of the world population are affected).
It's not included in this list by now. Laws regarding intercourse with animals change and are very different by country / cultural influence. So who thinks this should be added and who believes it shouldn't?
Should it be included as indecent exposure or exhibitionism? I see indecent exposure as an to wide defined area. Exhibitionism states clearly the meaning of showing the body/parts, so it's clearly different from nudism (which usually has a health purpose and is practiced inside cultural habits).
Defamation What do you guys think about adding Defamation into the template?
Victimless Crime section
I removed the victimless crime section as the term "victimless crime" is too subjective. Look at how many back-and-forth edits we've had over what's "victimless" and what's not. Please discuss here. --MikeD789364 (talk) 17:20, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
- I agree, the victimless crime section shouldn't exist: it's inherently biased. Anything that is truly victimless should not be a crime. It clearly violates NPOV. It is very biased to baldly state that crimes are victimless when so many countries disagree. This is supposed to be an encyclopedia for the world, not just the West. There is a place for controversy on this issue in the victimless crimes article, but it doesn't belong in a category or template.
