Reading about Bratton and DeBlasio defending broken windows, I am so reminded of the many times Bloomberg defended stop and frisk. Mayor Mike warned us that the city would be in chaos without the use of stop and frisk. Today, we are told by Bratton and DeBlasio that massive crime will return unless we continue broken windows . Just imagine what would happen if we did not arrest people for crimes like “riding a bicycle on the sidewalk” or “walking through a park at night.” In all their justifications, they ignore the facts of selective law enforcement, content to allow Black and Latinos to be victims of broken windows. Bratton and DeBlasio are just as wrong in defending broken windows as Bloomberg was in his defense of stop and frisk. Their use of fear to defend broken windows is bankrupt.
