Justice Policy Journal Volume 19, Number 1 — Fall 2022

CJCJ’s Justice Policy Journal provides policymakers and researchers with an international forum to examine current justice issues, while promoting innovative policy solutions.

This newest issue includes research by James Pitts that explores media portrayals of police violence. By analyzing YouTube video footage, Pitts assesses the context of police brutality with a focus on the ways such events are depicted and discussed by the media. Findings reveal that videos of minority victims are more prevalent than white victims, and that physical force is often unnecessary and used against suspects in custody, or to resolve verbal exchanges during police/​citizen encounters.

Other JPJ articles in this issue explore wide-ranging justice topics such as reducing recidivism by creating and measuring fair chances and research on fighting in high schools being linked to social disorganization.
