Regulations of Killing

Regulations of Killing

(p.29) Chapter 2 Regulations of Killing
The Killing Consensus

Graham Denyer Willis

University of California Press

This chapter examines the two main sources of ordering violence in the city. I discuss what both the police and the PCC do, and I provide some background for both in both organizational and practical terms. I locate the homicide detectives within the public security infrastructure and look at how the regulation of life and death occurs in institutional terms.
