Situate yourselves as close as you can to the perpetrators of crime and deviance, to the victims, to the agents of social control; put yourselves, as best you can and for as long as you can, inside their lives, inside the lived moments of deviance and crime. You won't experience it nicely, and if the danger and hurt become too much, be glad of it. Because as near as you will ever get, you have found your way inside the humanity of crime and deviance.
