We are heartened by Tom Tyler's concurrence with the key conclusion of our full essay that evidence of procedurally just treatment of citizens by police or other representatives of the criminal justice system altering citizen perceptions of legitimacy and legal compliance is in short supply. Our main point of disagreement with Tyler is on how this agreed-upon conclusion about the state of the evidence should be communicated to policy makers. It is our view that the policy process is best served by a forthright acknowledgement of the weaknesses of the evidence base.
