Arresting Power­: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon.


This documentary screens on March 1st at the Hollywood Theater. Among the stories of police brutality and violence in Portland discussed is the Burger Barn possum-tossing incident (check out the recent heart-bombing of the old Burger Barn building, 3962 NE MLK, hopefully to be restored in the near future).

For more on Arresting Power, and policing in Portland, please read Martha Gies’ excellent interview with Norman Diamond in Street Roots.
