Perp Walk

ADDPMP719

A practice in American law enforcement of taking an arrested suspect through a public place, most commonly after arrest, when transporting him or her from a police station to court, creating an opportunity for the media to take photographs and video of the event. The defendant is typically handcuffed or otherwise restrained and is sometimes dressed in prison garb. The practice rose in popularity in the 1980s when white-collar criminals were perp-walked.

The first perp walks originated in medieval Europe when the end of the judicial process, ie the sentencing (often an execution), was its most and sometimes the only public aspect, as the entire criminal procedure remained secret. In France, convicts wore placards communicating their offences. The executions themselves were long, almost theatrical spectacles. In medieval England, those convic- ted of high treason were also paraded through the streets in an open wagon to their executions.

Perp-walking has been criticised as a form of public humiliation that violates a defendant’s right to privacy and is prejudicial to the presumption of innocence; it has been described as primarily serving the interests of the police and the media rather than the defendant or justice. On the contrary, some have defended it as promoting transparency in the criminal justice system.
