Jerome Skolnick Studies Roots of Police Violence

Mother Jones, July 14, 2010 by Titania Kumeh

UC Berkeley law professor Jerome Skolnick and former New York City police officer/Temple University criminal justice professor James Fyfe say that police work is often viewed by those in the force as an us-versus-them war rather than a chance for community-oriented engagement and problem solving. The authors also point to a lack of accountability as one of the reasons why police violence persists.
