Councilman Corey Johnson was busted yesterday for walking between the subway cars—no better than the common teen.
Johnson was apparently stopped as he switched cars on the A train near the West 23rd Street station around 6 p.m., the Daily News reports.
As the News tells it, Johnson quickly turned the incident into a critique of broken windows policing, a tactic in which cops crack down on minor infractions with the idea that major crimes will diminish as well.
“He was making a big deal out of it,” a source told the tabloid. “He was saying this is what’s wrong with broken windows. He identified himself. He pulled out his cell and started making calls.”
