dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract The study described in “Snitches Get Stitches”: Youth, Gangs, and Witness Intimidation in Massachusetts aimed to increase knowledge and understanding of (a) the critical factors that deter youth witnesses from reporting gang crimes and testifying against perpetrators, and (b) the kinds of policies and programs that can encourage victim and witness cooperation. In particular, this project sought to gather data about factors that influence youths’ decisions to cooperate in the criminal justice process and the extent and nature of intimidation in their communities after crimes occur. Research methods included an on-line survey of 641 Massachusetts youth ages 12 to 20, in-person individual interviews with 39 youth ages 13 to 21, and interviews with seven public officials.
