During the 1940s, many South Africans made their way to the city for jobs in the mines. Unfortunately, economic hardships caused a number of citizens to engage in criminal behavior, like Absalom.

Their five categories are primary victimization, secondary victimization, tertiary victimization, mutual victimization, and no victimization” (J., R. 2006). Primary victimization is when a group or an individual targets a specific type of victim to mark for persecution.
