'Arresting Power' Seattle Screening
Community policing is gaining a lot of traction in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. At Wednesday's Community Police Commission meeting safety concerns about the police presence at #BlackLivesMatter and May Day protests took center stage. Arresting Power provides a historical and political analysis on policing by focusing on cases in Portland.
This film challenges the notion that the Pacific Northwest is devoid of racially charged history: interviews feature stories about everyday harassment, lives lost, intimidation, and 50 years' worth of activist efforts to change the game.
