“Broken Windows” Policing [...]

Marking the resignation of NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton:

Throughout his career, Bratton has advocated for so-called “broken windows” policing, in which police crack down on minor crimes, such as riding a bike on the sidewalk, or dodging subway fees. The theory is that keeping neighborhoods orderly serves to deter more serious crime from taking root. Critics say broken windows policing leads officers to use excessive force and unfairly affects Americans of color. Bratton continues to defend the practice, telling NPR in 2015, “It’s what made this city safe in the first place.”
