    2. Police officers have a lot of leeway in deciding whether to book people on certain charges. For instance, in some cities, nearly any minor pretext is enough for an officer to arrest a suspect on suspicion of assaulting a police officer.

    2. To date, very few police departments across the country either collectdata on lower level uses of force or explicitly punish ocers for misuse of these tactics

    10. As such it is likely that publicperceptions and responses will continue to be of crucialimportance.

      What does this tell you about the ongoing questions around this issue?

    11. The criticisms expressed within this paper should not be takenas being only relevant to the academic literature. The assumptionspresented here have been shown to find their way into policy andpractitioner debates as well as planning debates around particularproposed wind power developments (as highlighted above inrelation to NIMBYism).

      What does this tell you about the author's audience?

    12. has aimed to draw critical attention to keyassumptions underpinning the extant literature relating to publicattitudes and responses to wind power

      Author restates purpose of the paper.

    13. The majority of the public supports wind power.2. Opposition to wind power is therefore deviant.3. Opponents are ignorant or misinformed.4. The reason for understanding opposition is to overcome it.5. Trust is key.

      Author clearly indicates what she will do in the article. What does that mean to you?

    14. The arguments presented in this section resonate with theliterature relating to Public Understanding of Science (PUS). ThePUS movement arose in response to a perceived threat to thelegitimacy of science resulting from a breakdown of public trust(Gregory and Miller, 1998).

      Author identifies another core term or concept central to this issue.

      The author is indicating that this work is more balanced than other citations. What does that say to you?

    16. A prominent example of this effect is the now widelydiscredited Not-In-My-BackYard (NIMBY) explanation. Accordingto NIMBY explanations of opposition to wind power develop-ments individuals or communities ‘favour wind power as anabstract concept but oppose wind power projects in their area’(Warren et al., 2005, p. 857).

      The author identifies key terminology and concepts in the issue. What does that say to you?

    17. It has been contended that new wind power developments arebecoming ever more difficult to realise and this is frequentlyattributed, at least partly, to localised public opposition to suchdevelopments (Barry et al., 2008;Bell et al., 2005;Devine-Wright,2007,Ellis et al., 2007;Peel and Lloyd, 2007)

      The author has included a number of citations and studies. What does that say to you?

    18. To support thisassumption it routinely refers to opinion poll data or the findingsof surveys to suggest that public support for the technology is, ingeneral, high (for example;Barry et al., 2008;Bell et al., 2005among many others). Although there is some evidence to suggestthat this may be true (seeMcGowan and Sauter, 2005;POST,2007),

      The authors is presenting arguments and counterarguments. Does that impact your perception of credibility?

    19. The literature relating topublic attitudes and responses to wind power is well-establishedand the assumptions identified within this literature haveimplications for how the technology is discussed in policy andpractice fields. Ultimately it impacts on how the technology isdeveloped and how opponents to its development are perceivedand responded to.

    1. Periodic attempts to bring attention to poverty through assuming poverty oneself—eating off a SNAP (food stamp) budget or sleeping outside—are regularly ridiculed as publicity stunts, but the impact on the participants is far from cosmetic.

      POLICY Statement describing the use of assuming poverty to address the issue.

      • Do these activities create other problems?
      • Is there change in politician's beliefs following experiences?
    2. Without a presence of poverty in their lives, politicians don’t come to witness or understand the realities on the ground—and perplexingly, few observers seem to advocate that this needs to change.

      QUALITY

      Statement of consequences: if not corrected, politicians do not grasp the realities.

    3. Consequently, America’s political elite is often woefully out of touch with economic reality for those living in poverty—or even those struggling to stay out of it.

      QUALITY Statement of quality: the outcome of these issues are that politicians are cleally out of touch with the poor they represent.

      • How frequently do laws and legislation effectively correct issues of poverty?
      • Would more be possible if representatives were more economically divers?
    4. Political office most often comes through compounding connections, where a more-than-middle-class family, influential college peers, work associates, and other social and religious communities all provide a network of resources that ensures the connected become the elected.

      FACT Statement of fact: describes some of the causes of the issue: connections, influence, communities, resources.

      • What conditions lead towards likelihood of election?
      • What factors are most important?
    5. only 13 out of 783 members of Congress from 1999 to 2008 came from a “blue-collar” upbringing

      FACT Statement identifying conditions of the problem and characteristics of congress members.

      • How significantly have politician's salaries increased?

      • When did the disparity become so glaring?

    6. Politicians ought to physically encounter the circumstances of their constituents, to observe the trials of the most needy, and most importantly to experience the conditions themselves.

      POLICY Statement for change: politicians should encounter and experience poverty.

    7. Until larger economic trends are reversed, however, stopgap measures are the only resort.

      POLICY Statement clarifying that solutions suggested are a start but larger economic trends need to be altered.

    8. It’s not surprising that many of the champions for the poor rely on personal experience.

      POLICY Statement that personal experience is paramount to change.

    9. We can’t expect effective and humane policy without representatives who understand, witness, and investigate the experience that they control.

      QUALITY Statement identifying that without remedy policy and situations will not change.

    10. The U.S. spends among the lowest on the poor per capita in the OECD, is the least effective at reducing poverty, and consequently, faces the largest poverty problem.

      FACT Statement of fact: describe conditions that allow the problem to persist.

    11. the likelihood of poor or recently poor representatives in a democracy is slim.

      DEFINITION Statement describing the problem: that inability of low income citizens attaining office.

    12. The increased economic segregation of American neighborhoods means that members of Congress are less likely to mingle with poor, though Democrats tend to represent districts with greater inequality (and greater wealth) than Republicans.

      DEFINITION Statement of definition: it is both an economic and politcal problem.

    13. For the first time, more than half of the members of Congress are millionaires. Nearly 200 are multimillionaires. One hundred are worth more than $5 million; the top-10 deal in nine digits.
