Resignation to problems

Other Names:
Sense of defeat
Defeatist civic attitude
Defeatist self-images of citizens' law enforcement groups
Defeatism in the face of problems
Reconstruction seen as impossible

Community groups concerned with law enforcement which are unable to see their defeats in a wider context may fall prey to images of defeat and powerlessness. They become increasingly victimized by these self-images and retreat from dealing with vital problems into a milieu of apathy and personal isolation.
