Not the most humorous interview, but Stephen Colbert last night got Bratton to explain his "Broken Windows Theory," which was applied here in L.A., and how he's going to apply it to his new private security gig.

In 2007, then-City Councilmember (now City Controller) Wendy Greuel spoke to LAist about the broken windows theory application in Los Angeles.
