dc.description.abstractThe theme for the 1994 criminology conference is the intersections of empirical research, theory, and public policy formulation. Alas. I shall advance the argument that there is little intersection between criminological research, theory, and public policy. Instead, I find that public policy toward crime and justice is largely driven by media-generated stories (including celebrated crime cases) instead of social science research. Because media sources for crime news are not typically criminologists or those with some knowledge of socio-historical patterns of crime, media stories often misinform readers and viewers. By framing crime and ‘the criminals’ in individualist and crisis-oriented terms, media-filtered knowledge contributes to a punitive, law-and-order response to crime by policymakers who see in ‘the crime issue’ a way to capitalize on their popularity, future election, or continued time in office.en_US
