ABSTRACTWe investigate how changes in deviant personal experiences, vicarious information, perceptions of deterrence policies, and impulsivity as a conditioning factor affect the perceived detection risk (PDR). We examine this by using the example of plagiarism by German university students using panel data (N = 1,684). Results show, for example, that gaining experience with plagiarism lowered the PDRs, while detection increased the PDRs. Vicarious information indicating low detection risks lowe...

ABSTRACTUnderstanding individuals’ encounters with Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the largest law enforcement agency in the United States, is an important theoretical and policy-relevant issue. Travelers entering the U.S. through ports of entry may generalize their experiences with border officials to local law enforcement, and thus, negative experiences at ports of entry may reduce travelers’ willingness to cooperate with police and report victimization. Existing studies, however, have pr...

textabstractBased on ethnographic fieldwork and a content analysis of secondary sources, the current study presents an in-depth case study of gang evolution. We chart the history and development of the Dutch Crips, from playgroup origins in the 1980s to criminal endeavors in the 1990s, to its rebirth as an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang in the 2000s. At each evolutionary stage, we examine the identity of the group, its organization, the nature of its criminal activities, and branding. We highlight how, ...

ABSTRACTThis article is concerned with normative conceptions of health structuring tobacco control strategies designed to “denormalize” tobacco use. Analysis of 201 interviews with non-heterosexual and/or non-cisgender adults in California revealed that participants implicated tobacco use in exacerbating health inequities and perpetuating harmful narratives of queer suffering, but also regarded smoking as a critical tool for self-care and symbol of resistance. Participant narratives suggest that...

ABSTRACT“Intersectionality” has been a key theory in feminist criminology. However, its origin remains disputed. Some have argued it was produced by black feminists in the 1980s. Others have said it was produced by black women in nineteenth-century. The argument of this paper is that it emerged in the 1960s and became popular in the 1970s. It will demonstrate that the key causes of its emergence were the increasing popular concern with the socioeconomic plight of blacks in those decades, and bla...

ABSTRACTSynthetic cannabinoids are the second most used illicit substance among U.S. adolescents. Despite their prevalence and dangers, we know little about the characteristics associated with use. While clinical samples have shed some light on how synthetic cannabinoids differ from marijuana, they have not explored career trajectories of synthetic cannabinoid users. We analyze online forum posts about people’s synthetic cannabinoid use to understand more about these novel psychoactive drugs and...
ABSTRACTThis article explores personal management of health related risk in the context of amateur waterboarding torture-in effect, how people manage to ‘survive’ while trying out militarised psychomedical torture tactics for recreational reasons. In particular it examines why ordinary people torture themselves; their understandings of the seriousness of the risks that they are taking; and the strategies that they used to manage risk and ensure survival. 65 amateur waterboarding sessions are exa...

ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to establish whether there were demographic, personality, or psychological differences between a sample of 40 incarcerated sex offenders in categorical denial and 37 sex offenders admitting responsibility in an Australian minimum-security unit. Categorical deniers had lower IQs, were older, and were more likely to be child molesters. Criminogenically, there were no differences between categorical deniers and those who admitted their offences in relation to S...
