  • Media Reporting
    • The media reports criminal activity in a highly selective way
    • Cohen (1973) argued that through several stages, a group is identified and portrayed by the media as being 'trouble makers'
      • Which leads to public outcry and the determination by the authorities (police etc.) to tackle the problem group
        • Amplification of deviance
