Item description for Police Coercion: Application of the Force Continuum (Criminal Justice: Recent Scholarship) (Criminal Justice Series: Recent Scholarhsip) by William Terrill...
Terrill studies police use of force in two cities with observational data. He examines individual police-citizen encounters, tests theoretical perspectives on force, and offers the Resistance Force Comparative Scale to examine how officers apply force. Officers use more force on male, nonwhite, poor, young, and intoxicated citizens. Surprisingly, however, they are not more forceful toward disrespectful citizens. Officers also differentially escalate and de-escalate force according the nature of resistance. Interestingly, they do not jump at the opportunity to use force on resistant suspects, offering instead a second chance to comply before applying increased force.
