Abstract (EN)Since the emergence of television, crime news has increasingly acquired a prominent place in contemporary public debate. These stories have gone from being minor news items to the main headline. This article retraces that historic shift as a complex articulation between first the expansion of crime stories in the news, and the transformation of political power (speeches, communication strategies, penal measures) that seeks to fulfill its regal mission of protecting citizens.
