Broken Windows, Lawsuits, and a Journalist’s Ordeal

From a New York Times story by David Enrich headlined “A Reporter Investigated Sexual Misconduct. Then the Attacks Began.”:

One drizzly Saturday in May last year, a slender man in a blue raincoat approached a house in the Boston suburb of Melrose. It was just before 6 a.m., and no one was around. The man took out a can of red spray paint and scrawled “JUST THE BEGINNING!” on the side of the white house. Then he hurled a brick through a large window and sprinted away.
