Representations of Gangs and Delinquency: Wild in the Streets?
Perrone, Paul A.; Chesney-Lind, Meda
Social Justice, v24 n4 p96-116 1997
Studied the coverage of juvenile crime in the Hawaiian press. Analyses of a master list of 649 newspaper articles for a 10-year period show a wide disparity between the output of articles and actual youth crime trends. The media also tended to focus on gang activity in its coverage of youth crime. (SLD)
