J298 Police Reporting and Media Narratives

Police Reporting and Media Narratives: To better understand the tensions between law enforcement and communities of color, the course will examine cops, courts and incarceration. The course would acquaint students with the enigma of declining rates of violent crime when prison populations have risen. It would also look at police killings of unarmed suspects. But it would also explore violence and homicide rates within marginalized communities and the efforts to establish dialog with law enforcement.
