  • Miscarriages of Justice in the Age of Social Media: The Amanda Knox and
           Raffaele Sollecito Innocence Campaign
    • Authors: Gies L.
      Abstract: The role of the media in exposing miscarriages of justice has not been extensively researched and even less is known about the contribution of the Internet and social media. Drawing on in-depth interviews with innocence campaigners, this article examines the social media campaign to overturn the conviction of Amanda Knox and her co-accused Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007. It explores the campaigners’ use of different media platforms. It also examines their motivations in joining and supporting the campaign and discusses the campaign’s contributions and social dynamics. Finally, it elucidates the factors that shaped supporters’ belief in the innocence of Knox and Sollecito.

  • Lawyers’ Strategies for Cross-examining Rape Complainants: Have We
           Moved Beyond the 1950s?
    • Authors: Zydervelt S; Zajac R, Kaladelfos A, et al.
      Abstract: Despite widespread reforms to legislation and policy, rape complainants still find cross-examination distressing, demeaning and humiliating. We conducted a systematic and holistic examination of cross-examination strategies to discern: (1) the range of tactics that defence lawyers use to challenge rape complainants’ accounts; and (2) whether—and if so, how—the approaches used currently differ from those used prior to the reforms. We compared the strategies and tactics used in cases that were prosecuted in the 1950s to those used in cases from the turn of the twenty-first century. Although contemporary complainants were subjected to lengthier cross-examinations involving a broader range of tactics than their historical counterparts, there was little difference in the breakdown of strategies and tactics across time periods.

  • From Law Enforcement to Protection? Interactions Between Sex Workers and
           Police in a Decriminalized Street-based Sex Industry
    • Authors: Armstrong L.
      Abstract: Legislative approaches to the sex industry are hotly debated internationally and in recent years interest in decriminalization of sex work has been growing. However, activities relating to commercial sex remain criminalized in many parts of the world. Street-based sex work is most often criminalized and is often more aggressively policed than indoor work. This paper explores changes in the relationship between police and street sex workers in New Zealand since the decriminalization of sex work in 2003, from the perspective of sex workers, police and support agencies. This paper concludes that decriminalization enabled a dramatic shift in the approach to policing sex work and emphasizes the importance of these findings in the context of global debates on prostitution law reform.

  • Schools and Delinquency in the Early 20th Century: Rethinking the Origins
           of School Policing
    • Authors: Burton CS.
      Abstract: Schools in the United States are well understood as sites of social control, but the prevailing view is that schools have only become directly and closely linked with justice systems in recent decades. This article argues that much of the recent literature on school policing, the school-to-prison pipeline and related phenomena have overlooked the deeper history of mass education as a fertile grounds for law enforcement activities. The article shows how early on in the life of American mass education, a group of organizations called Coordinating Councils brought schools and law enforcement together to detect, prevent and control delinquency. I conclude that this history troubles dominant explanations of the causes of the close relationship between schools and police.

  • Triad Organized Crime in Macau Casinos: Extra-legal Governance and
    • Authors: Lo T; Kwok S.
      Abstract: The Chinese criminal underworld is evolving along two paths: structural and territorial-based triads and criminal groups formed by entrepreneurs. The present study used triad involvement in casino VIP rooms to examine how these two paths cross after China resumed sovereignty of Macau in 1999. It was found that although the current operations of the junket business is determined by the external business environment in mainland China, triads continue to treat the VIP rooms as economic territories. New forms of betting and crime have emerged to meet the needs of high-end gamblers, thus resulting in the formation of a triad-enterprise hybrid that comprises territoriality and reputation of violence commonly found in extra-legal governance and the dynamic entrepreneurship of small firms.

  • From ‘Rogue Traders’ to Organized Crime Groups: Doorstep Fraud
           of Older Adults
    • Authors: Phillips C.
      Abstract: This paper explores fraudulent acts by offenders who target and pressurize older adults ‘on the doorstep’ to have property repairs, often misrepresenting themselves as skilled tradesmen, and overcharging for such work. It uses extensive documentary materials from 11 enforcement operations in England together with interviews with trading standards officers and financial investigators. Using Reiner’s Necessary Conditions of Crime framework illustrates the dynamics of doorstep fraud—from ‘low-value’ crimes to incidents of grooming and repeated victimization to the actions of organized crime groups often involving money laundering. The paper’s contribution is a focus on a relatively understudied but vulnerable demographic group in criminology, and in highlighting the investigative practices of non-constabulary law enforcement officers who have not been the subject of empirical study in criminology.

  • Cybercriminal Networks, Social Ties and Online Forums: Social Ties Versus
           Digital Ties Within Phishing and Malware Networks
    • Authors: Leukfeldt E; Kleemans ER, Stol WP.
      Abstract: Online forums serve as offender convergence settings for cybercriminals, but it is unknown whether all cybercriminal networks use forums. Important questions are how cybercriminals meet, how cybercriminal networks develop and what this means for the criminal capabilities of these networks. To gain insight into these questions, we analysed 18 criminal investigations into phishing and malware networks and developed four models of growth. Social ties still play an important role in the origin and growth of the majority of networks. Forums, however, also play a significant role in a number of networks, for example, to find suitable co-offenders or to get into contact with enablers. Criminals with access to forums are able to increase criminal capabilities of their network relatively quickly.

  • The Vagrancy Act (1824) and the Persistence of Pre-emptive Policing in
           England since 1750
    • Authors: Lawrence P.
      Abstract: This article argues that research into preventive and pre-emptive crime control in the United Kingdom has marginalized the historical persistence of the power to arrest and convict on justified suspicion of intent. It traces the genesis of this power in statute law (particularly the Vagrancy Act of 1824) and demonstrates its consistent use in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It shows how this pre-emptive power was fiercely defended by police authorities, particularly during the rise of the ‘civil liberties’ agenda during the 1930s, only losing ground when use of these powers became entangled with debates about race relations in the 1970s. Overall, the article argues that ‘pre-emptive’ arrest and conviction on suspicion of intent have been a significant component of UK police powers since the later eighteenth century, and seeks to demonstrate the value of historical criminology in problematizing contemporary debates.

  • How Young People Peacefully Challenge Community Norms Embedded With
           Violence in a Brazilian Favela
    • Authors: Sampson A; Villela M.
      Abstract: Drawing on social disorganization theories this paper considers what type of voluntary organization might mediate community social norms in localities with low income where violence is embedded in social institutions and residents appear unable to informally regulate violent crimes. This study describes how the situated logic of one organization, located in a favela in Brazil, transcends personal ties to the organization and illustrates how community-based organizations have potential to influence community norms with the expectation that rates of violence will decline. This organization has made it possible for young people to publically disrupt the symbolic order that maintains divisive social rules and has started to alter gendered norms that contribute to high levels of neighbourhood violence.

  • Resistance as Agency? Incorporating the Structural Determinants of
           Prisoner Behaviour
    • Authors: Rubin AT.
      Abstract: Recent research in prison sociology has described prisoners’ resistance as an exercise of agency within restrictive settings. This study argues that the emphasis on agency has obscured the role of other factors that contribute to prisoner behaviour, including structure. Using an historical case study, I illustrate several ways in which prisoners’ friction and resistance are not only reactions against the prison regime, but are also enabled, constructed, and shaped by it. This study produces a two-dimensional framework that locates friction and resistance within a nexus of agency and structure. Incorporating structural determinants of prisoner behaviour, while recognizing the role of agency, allows a fuller, more accurate understanding of prisoner behaviour.

  • Eroding the Presumption of Innocence: Pre-trial Detention and the Use of
           Conditional Release on Bail
    • Authors: Myers N.
      Abstract: The rate with which pre-trial detention is used across most common law jurisdictions has been increasing. In Canada, the rate has tripled over the past 30 years and the proportion of prisoners in pre-trial detention is higher than in other jurisdictions. Contrary to the presumption of innocence, many accused will spend time in pre-trial detention and if released on bail will have a number of restrictive conditions routinely imposed. It is a criminal offence to fail to comply with any of these conditions. Using data collected from observations of 152 days of bail hearings in 11 courts in Ontario, Canada, this paper argues significant efforts to control and monitor behaviour are being used outside of a finding of guilt.

  • Slaves and Statues: Torture Prevention in Contemporary Europe
    • Authors: Daems T.
      Abstract: International monitoring bodies such as the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) function on the basis of the assumption that member States support their activities and share the same objective, that is, to eradicate all forms of torture and ill-treatment in closed institutions that are under state control. In practice, the CPT submits reports to the member States it has visited and initiates a dialogue with States on how to improve the situation in light of its findings and recommendations. But why, then, are findings sometimes contested and recommendations neglected? Why is there not more compliance? In this article, we will explore a number of strategies that state authorities deploy when they deal with information that is felt to be annoying, troubling or threatening. The article draws on a study of the published interactions between the CPT and Belgium covering a period of almost two decades (1993–2012).
