  • The Andy Griffith Show: Stigma and Fear Base Decisions

    In this clip, we see that a person who Andy has arrested in the past wants to visit him. While he does take this lightheartedly, his deputy is driven with fear and paranoia of the vistiors intentions for revenge. While this is not unreasonable, there is a bias stigma against the innmate as the label and assumption of revenge follows him. Under a critical lens we must question how people interact and communicate this in and out the authority of the policing instituion. This clip is also framed within a certain time period in the US so drawing upon its morals and social conciousness at the time relative today only adds room for growth and deeper conversations of stigmatization.
