4) Facial Profiling: Race, Physical Appearance, and Punishment
The article investigates the associations among physical appearance, threat perceptions, and criminal punishment. Findings indicate that Black defendants are perceived to be more threatening in appearance. Other facial characteristics, such as physical attractiveness, baby-faced appearance, facial scars, and visible tattoos, also influence perceptions of threat, as do criminal history scores. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1745-9125.12143/full
