Contents
Viewing and picturing cops. Looking back through the viewfinder. Wanting something to "happen". "Here's a good shot". "They'll think we're boring" -- All the street's a stage. The dramaturgical metaphor. Approaching cops as viewers. The fog of the street -- Prime-time crime and street perceptions. Televisual content. Street perceptions : police responses to the screen -- Ethnography and police work -- Observing the street cop -- Front stage and back stage. The front stage. The back stage. Star power and control. Failed expectations and value judgments -- The (real) mean world. In the same boat. Everyone is innocent. No respect from the audience. The system is against them : statistics as bullshit. Tales of decline. Conclusions : rebels against the public? -- Real cops and mediated cops : can they "get along"?. Perceptions as effects. The struggle continues
