NYPD’s Use of ‘Broken Windows’ Crime-Fighting Strategy Comes Under Fire

By Steve Neavling

 The Justice Department is mulling whether to investigate NYPD’s use of the controversial crime fighting strategy known as “broken windows,” the New York Daily News reports.

The Justice Department Civil Rights Division is considering a request from six members of Congress to investigate whether black people and Hispanics are disproportionately affected by quality-of-life violations.

“When a systemic pattern or practice of misconduct is determined to exist, we have the authority to initiate civil action against state or local officials to remedy the misconduct,” wrote Justice Department Assistant Attorney General Peter J. Kadzik.

The Congress members said plenty of evidence exists against the NYPD.

“It’s now our job to convince the Department of Justice that the evidence exists to open a pattern and practice investigation,” said Congressman Hakeem Jeffries. “The police department in New York City is out of control right now. It seems as though every day a new video surfaces of an officer brutalizing someone in the black and Latino community.”
