Basically its a policy of cracking down on minor issues in poor neighborhoods. The theory was supposedly that this would discourage more serious crime

heres an exploration of the idea from npr npr.org/2016/11/01/500104506/b


@hope @moonwater@radical.town holy crap lol this whole thing is so wild

it's crazy to think that the conclusion that people got from "when something is neglected, the things around it are seen as worthy of neglect as well" and tried to solve it with criminalizing poverty instead of doing things for the community, like community programs, creating art and revitalizing public spaces what the fuck lmao
