NYC Subway Performers: We’re Being Over-policed
Subway acrobats, dancers and musicians on Tuesday decried what they said was heavy-handed policing, gathering outside City Hall to join critics of a police clampdown on minor offenses. One activist suggested a temporary halt to subway performer arrests, which have spiked this year as officers zeroed in on minor crimes to set a tone of not tolerating lawlessness. Zenon “Tito” Laguerre, a 34-year-old construction worker and subway acrobat who said he was arrested last week said, “We dance. We sing. We’re not criminals. … We shouldn’t really get locked up for showing our talent.”
