Mackenzie, the author of the article and a senior researcher at the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research at the University of Glasgow poses an argument of habitus (a form of 'practical knowledge') the concept of which collects features of social existence such as disposition, agency, strategy, structural reproduction, body, mind, choice, and unconsciousness. The chapter bases habitus on international research of law and morality in criminal cases where the accused often misrepresent or hide (silence issue) certain facts in order to get 'off the hook'. All the research, however has reached little impact on the present situation in misrepresentations of habitus. The author examines this and other factors like looting based upon Bourdieu's analyses of such measures.
