In this first part of a three-segment mini-series, we wanted to take moment and recognize Kacey Shap and his contributions to the field of social and behavioral science, and have a chat about his study, which is titled:  Gangs, Activists, and Law Enforcement: The Formation of Relational Role Theory How Stakeholders Externalize Violent Street Gangs.
