Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys New Perspectives in Crime, Deviance, and Law

#ad
NYU Press #ad - Wright mills book award presented by the study of Social Problems Victor Rios grew up in the ghetto of Oakland, California in the 1980s and 90s. These boys found themselves in a vicious cycle, even before they had committed any crimes, profiled, and disciplined at young ages, caught in a spiral of punishment and incarceration as they were harassed, watched, eventually leading many of them to fulfill the destiny expected of them.

Ultimately, he argues that by understanding the lives of the young men who are criminalized and pipelined through the criminal justice system, we can begin to develop empathic solutions which support these young men in their development and to eliminate the culture of punishment that has become an overbearing part of their everyday lives.

But beyond a fatalistic account of these marginalized young men, Rios finds that the very system that criminalizes them and limits their opportunities, sparks resistance and a raised consciousness that motivates some to transform their lives and become productive citizens. A former gang member and juvenile delinquent, rios managed to escape the bleak outcome of many of his friends and earned a PhD at Berkeley and returned to his hometown to study how inner city young Latino and African American boys develop their sense of self in the midst of crime and intense policing.

Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys New Perspectives in Crime, Deviance, and Law #ad - New york University Press. Rios followed a group of forty delinquent Black and Latino boys for three years. Punished examines the difficult lives of these young men, who now face punitive policies in their schools, communities, and a world where they are constantly policed and stigmatized.
