Burns, Ronald G., Crawford, Charles E.


Every day, somewhere in the United States, there is a violent event involving a police officer. Although sometimes on the recipient side of the violence, often the officer is the one contributing to the violence. Despite the fact that the violent action by the officer may be justifiable, any violent act brings unwanted, and often unwarranted, criticisms against the police. The criticism can usually be attributed to the lack of understanding by critics about the context of policing and violence.Policing and Violenceis an introduction and attempt to better explain the how and why of police violence. InPolicing and Violence,Drs. Ronald Burns and Charles Crawford and co-authors, throughout the text review the history and context of police violence in an effort to identify the possible explanations for its existence. The underlying theme is that while not condoned, there are times that violence by police may be necessary, and should be better understood. Policing and Violencerepresents an in-depth examination of policing and violence through the perspectives of respected academics and practitioners. This text will help broaden the readers understanding of the relationship between the police and violence.Burns, Ronald G. is the author of 'Policing and Violence', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130284372 and ISBN 0130284378.
