NEW YORK---The death of a New York
City man suspected of selling loose,
untaxed cigarettes on the street after he
was put in an apparent chokehold by
police has cast a spotlight on the tactic
called Broken Windows, the idea that
going after smaller crimes as such helps
stop greater disorder such as assault and
Eric Garner s death last week has put
Broken Windows under renewed scrutiny,
with some lawmakers and experts saying
the decades-old theory no longer applies
to a city with far less crime, unnecessarily
puts nonviolent people at risk and fuels
tensions in the city s minority communi-
"I don t think it s a necessary police tac-
tic," City Councilman Andy King said Tues-
day, during a news conference about Gar-
ner s death. City Councilwoman Inez
Barron added that such enforcement "leads
to confrontations like this."
The tactic caused a stir even before Gar-
ner s death. An 84-year-old pedestrian
who tussled with police officers trying to
stop him for illegally crossing the street
earlier this year ended up with a bloody
head injury. He s since filed a $5 million
claim against the city alleging he was
But the Garner case has turned up the
heat. His arrest was captured on a widely
distributed amateur video that appears to
show an officer putting the asthmatic, 350-
pound father of six in a banned chokehold
after he refused to be handcuffed. He can
be heard yelling, "I can t breathe!" as several
officers take him down.
Autopsy results are pending on a death
that has sparked protests, a criminal probe
and a warning by an established activist
that Garner s family would explore asking
for a federal civil rights investigation. The
family held a candlelight vigil Tuesday
night on the eve a funeral set for last night.
The criticism comes at a time when the
new administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio
has sought to ease tensions between police
and minorities by curtailing the depart-
ment s widespread use of street stops of
young men---so-called stop and frisk---as
a strategy to curb crime. De Blasio s pick
for police commissioner, William Bratton,
has long used Broken Windows as an alter-
native tool to help keep crime rates at his-
Bratton vowed on Tuesday to stick with
the programme, saying the NYPD plans to
next target illegal vendors who rent bikes
in Central Park. He credited a similar crack-
down on fare beaters during his first tenure
as police commissioner in the 1990s with
being the "tipping point" for a drastic
reduction in overall crime in the subways;
but the NYPD at that time also drew crit-
icism for what some viewed as heavy-
handed tactics against minorities.
"There s no change in that focus at all,"
Bratton said of Broken Windows. "That s
a key part of what we re doing."
But critics say Broken Windows is bro-
"This is a defining moment for that
administration. ... There is no human being
who can look at that video and say nothing
wrong occurred," City Councilman Jumaane
The idea that the approach reduces seri-
ous crime is a hypothesis without any data
to back it up, said Brooklyn College soci-
ology professor Alex Vitale.
Vitale said Broken Windows and sys-
tematic stop-and-frisk tactics are examples
of "over-policing" that would have been
considered a waste of resources in past
"Twenty years ago, if an officer had
brought in Eric Garner for selling loose
cigarettes," Vitale said, "his sergeant would
have laughed him out of the precinct
