Click on the link to access the article on the Broken Windows Theory. Classroom discussions and critical thinking exercises will be based on this article. Read carefully. I apologize in advance for the advertisements:https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1982/03/broken-windows/304465/ (Links to an external site.)After reading the assigned article, please reflect on the following critical thinking questions:
How might a community respond to a change from a “law enforcement” perspective to an “order maintenance” one? How would the police respond to the change? Would specific communities respond differently? Why or why not?
If charges such as “Suspicious person” and “vagrancy” exist “because a society wants an officer to have the legal tools to remove undesirable persons from a neighborhood,” what might explain the recent trend towards nonenforcement in these areas?
