Dr. John Drury presents a case study of the St. Paul's poll tax riot of 1980 to demonstrate the Elaborated Social Identity Model, or ESIM. He explains that differing perceptions of the situation by the demonstrators and the police were a contributing factor in the conflict. As the police exercised theit power to confront what they perceived as a threat, the protesters were unified in identity and defensive reactions.
