Levine Presents Paper at Crimfest, is Quoted in Mississippi Today

In July, Professor Kate Levine presented her work in progress, Policing Danger, levineat Crimfest. This paper examines the danger narrative propagated by the police, and argues that other system actors have ceded control over this narrative to law enforcement. It theorizes that this danger narrative props up our unsustainable criminal justice machinery to the detriment of multiple areas of law and policy. The overblown danger rhetoric and refusal to seriously challenge it has deleterious effects on constitutional law, the relationship between police and the communities they serve, and the health and well being of individual officers.

Professor Levine also was quoted in an article for Mississippi Today about D.A. conflicts in cases where police harm civilians. The article can be found here.
