Abstract

The notion that informal sanction threats influence criminal decision-making is perhaps the most important contribution to neoclassical theory in thepast 15 years. Notably absent from this contribution is an examination of the ways in which the risk of victim retaliation - arguably, the ultimate informal sanction - mediates the process. The present article addresses thisgap, examining how active drug robbers (individuals who take money and drugs from dealers by force or threat of force) perceive and respond to the risk of victim retaliation in real-life settings and circumstances. The data's theoretical implications for deterrence and violence contagions are explored. Data were drawn from in-depth interviews with 25 currently active drugrobbers recruited from the streets of St. Louis, Missouri.
