Apply Broken-Windows Theory to the Police

F or a generation , American cops have aggressively policed many urban neighborhoods based on the premise that cracking down on minor street disorder would avert spikes in more serious crime. While reviled by some, the so-called broken-windows theory is still defended by many in law enforcement. Maybe it's time they applied it to themselves. According to the broken-windows theory, just as a build
