Description

Overview:
In this section we learn two perspectives explaining punitive crime policies. One argues that political elites promote punitive criminal justice policies as a political move to counter the civil rights movement and control minority groups (Weaver). The other argues that the public’s punitive preferences influence the incarceration rate and political leaders’ agenda (Enns). To be clear, we don’t know which perspective is correct. Both sides have their logic and evidence. This topic still requires further exploration.
