I See Rational People: Policing and the Sixth Sense

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Customarily, American culture leans heavily toward favoring the intellect over intuition. In the world of policing, however, officers are repeatedly taught to trust their ‘instincts’ or go with their ‘gut feelings’ in relation to assessments of citizen’s behavior. Utilizing data collected from police training courses, training manuals, and individual interviews with officers, this paper examines the subtle ways traditional gender, race, and social class norms are reconstituted through officers reliance on what is often crafted as intuitive or instinctual knowledge about communicative processes. This analysis highlights how a mythology of intuition compels officers to view others behavior as a naturally occurring response to their innate selves undermining any serious inquiry into the construction and communicative practice of ‘appropriate/inappropriate’ citizen behavior.
