High-Profile Crimes

Lynn S. Chancer

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the reactions of community participants, social movement activists, and other members of the public at large to high profile cases in the U.S. The analysis reveals that while some members of the public are apt to express dissatisfaction with the frameworks within which provoking assaults are debated, it was more common for people to take this framework for granted and improvise reactions in and around it. This chapter summarizes the types of actions myriad audiences express, including official protest and conversation.

Keywords:   high profile cases, U.S., community participants, social movement activists, provoking assaults
