This is an interesting interview on the effects of the application of Broken Windows Policing on homeless people.
The premise of the interview was that when minor violations of law are enforced on homeless people it makes them more disorderly.
I think this premise is flawed because it is similar to saying that enforcement of speeding laws creates more speeders because by stopping someone who was speeding now makes them late to wherever they were going and now they have to speed more!!!
