  • Juan Flores is a first year graduate student studying “gangs,” Illegality, and policing. His recent publication in the Hastings Journal of Crime and Punishment, Criminalization of Homies: Gang Policing Tactics and Community Fragmentation, focuses on the ramifications of policing “gang members” and the effects on the larger community. Juan is generally interested in the penal state, social control, stigma, and state violence. Outside of academia, Juan works towards the freedom and conscious liberation of oppressed peoples and plays chess.
