(p.109) Chapter 6 A Consensus Killed
The Killing Consensus

Graham Denyer Willis

University of California Press

Chapter 6 delves into the ways that the practices of relative peace break apart during moments of crisis. By examining how a spate of police assassinations in 2012 changed the ways that police go about their lives and undertake investigations of homicides and resistências, this chapter looks at what motivates the PCC and the state to step away from consensual practices of governance and into a phase of outright and disorienting violence. The chapter concludes by considering how different resolutions to crisis shape the system of consensual governance in normal times.
