People who ‘look like’ the deviants are increasingly under suspicion Partly due to the activity, more arrests are made which are reported in the press Responding to the calls for action, greater police attention is focused on the act with officers being taken off other types of investigation The behaviour catches the public attention, which makes it even more newsworthy – crime wave claim This leads to reports in the mass media and demands for ‘action’ to be taken
