Abstract: Recent research on the social construction of crime reveals patterns in the manufacturing of the media version of crime and justice. Much of this research relies on content analysis to decode and deconstruct the popular images of crime. This study administers a content analysis on feature newspaper articles on crime appearing in several major United States newspapers. We examined the content of violence within featured crime articles. The analysis of these crime articles focuses on not just the content of violence within these stories but the trends associated with this violence.
