Police Perceptions of a Hostile Ghetto: Realism or Projection
Groves, W. Eugene; Rossi, Peter H.
Amer Behav Sci, 13, 5,6, 727-744, May-Aug '70
Drawing upon results of interviews with 522 policemen in the black ghettos of 13 major cities in Spring, 1958, the authors speculate that by far most" of the white policeman's perception of black hostility is a projection of his own fears and prejudices, not legitimate reaction to actual hostility.
