Criminal Justice and Criminology Assistant Professor, Dr. Amanda Graham discusses Race and Worrying about Police Brutality: The Hidden Injuries of Minority Status in America. This study examined the level of worry that Americans felt about experiencing police brutality. Specifically, examining the racial and ethnic differences in levels of worry to understand not only the differences between Black and White Americans' (something that was expected) but also how Hispanic Americans' worried. We find that Black and Hispanic Americans' worry about experiencing police brutality at similar levels, which are five and four times higher than White Americans', respectively. This research has been used to apply for a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to further explore the fear of police in America.
