Today: Future of #BrokenWindows event w/ @ManhattanDA, @CommissBratton, @errollouis, @SquarePegDem, & Richard Aborn http://t.co/6YDuymuhLt/s/jKwM

#Brokenwindows is a community development strategy as well as a policing strategy

@SquarePegDem@ManhattanInst: High risk neighborhoods want more policing but it requires partnership w/ the community & police  @SquarePegDem http://t.co/K2bvRsfCoO/s/vOY_

@ManhattanInst: If we keep ppl w mental health issues on  medication & in supportive housing, we can help them from committing serious crimes. @SquarePegDem

At the conclusion of the forum, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with George Kelling, who together with James Q. Wilson, postulated the Broken Windows theory.

    Broken windows becomes an extension of Stop & Frisk when applied by police-driven CompStat which makes it a pre-emptive strike to bring down “crime” numbers not bring positive change to a community. Eric Garner died from Broken windows!!
