Abstract

Public support for harsh criminal justice policy remains relatively high, despite falling crime rates and increasing prison populations. In new research Carolyn Côté-Lussier finds that public anger toward crime and support for harsh criminal justice policy is linked to factors associated with social inequality. She recommends additional reforms to change people’s perceptions towards criminals and to promote alternatives to incarceration.
