Episode Info:

This episode focuses on DC and NYC's recent decision to decriminalize fare evasion.  I also talk about the broader theory that started the criminalization of minor acts, the Broken Window Theory of Policing and why it is administered unfairly. Finally, why intrusive policing DOES NOT WORK! (I said it loud for the people in the back.)
