Today I got very angry. A friend drew my attention to an article in yesterday’s Guardian and this led to the hunt for a newly appeared paper in criminology and an email conversation with the author – who ended up saying that I couldn’t criticise the paper because it has been published in a peer reviewed journal. And now he has blocked my emails. According to his university website “Professor David Wilson is one of the University’s dedicated team of trained media champions, and can comment on a range of subjects including: Murder and serial murder; prisons and imprisonment”.
But do not contradict him.
