"Look me in the eyes, darling“: Weapon focus effect

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



Abstract:

DNA analyses revealed that misidentification of the suspect is a major contributing factor of wrongly convicted people in the US. In the current meta-analysis 26 studies of the weapon focus effect were included testing the hypothesis that the presence of a weapon during commission of a crime affect eyewitnesses' ability to later identify or describe the perpetrator. A significant effect was demonstrated for both the correct identification (OR = 1.487; 95% CIs: 1.302; 1.699) and the correct description of the target (gu = .454; 95% CIs: .375; .553). Moderator analyses explored rival theoretical approaches and boundary conditions of the effect.
