Researching Violent Crimes

HideShow resource information

Violent acts by their nature are unexpected and there are few observational opportunities. (may have to wait a long time-higher cost and time)

A researcher could undertake covert participation in a subculture/gang whose activities involve violence.

The researcher may ‘go native’ and become wrapped up in violent acts.
