  • Descrição: ... Analyses of national survey data show that as states' incarceration rates increased, so too did the probability that residents believed that courts were too harsh. ... In this article, we study the relationship between mass imprisonment and two sets of beliefs: beliefs about the harshness of criminal justice institutions and beliefs about the sources of racial disparity in imprisonment. ... Few African Americans experience an incarceration rate as low as the highest rate for whites, and few whites experience an incarceration rate as high as the lowest rate for African Americans. ... Officers' infrequent interaction with law-abiding residents, Moskos claims, can lead them to form biased opinions about the level of offending in a community: By having only limited contact with the noncriminal public, police officers perceive the criminal element as even larger than it is. ... In summary, declining trust in criminal justice institutions could have different effects on punishment depending on the public's response.
