Title:
Attitudes Toward Crime, Police, and the Law: Individual and Neighborhood Differences
Subtitle/Series Name:
National Institute of Justice Research Preview
Abstract:
This summary of research contends that beliefs are formed by neighborhood context, not race. One of many findings is that blacks' and whites' views toward the law were found to be similar after neighborhood disadvantage was taken into account. Neighborhood outlooks on tolerance of teenage deviance and cynicism toward the law are also discussed in this NIJ Research Preview. source
