In her new book, Vice Patrol: Cops, Courts, and the Struggle over Urban Gay Life before Stonewall, HLS Assistant Professor of Law Anna Lvovsky chronicles the tactics used to criminalize, profile, and suppress gay life from the 1930s through the 1960s, and the surprising controversies those tactics often inspired in court. In this conversation with PCJ faculty chair Sandra Susan Smith,  Professor Lvovsky discusses how this research came about and its relevance for current discussions of police discretion and abuse of power.
