The Tendency to Arrest Victims of Domestic Violence: A Preliminary Analysis of Officer Characteristics.
Saunders, Daniel G.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v10 n2 p147-58 Jun 1995
Studied 111 police officers. Predicted that those inclined to arrest victims of domestic violence would have more negative stereotypes and attitudes toward victims and women. Results showed that those with an inclination to arrest victims believed domestic violence is justified situationally and that women stay in violent relationships for psychological reasons. (JBJ)
