His refusal led to probation, monitoring, a $50,000 bail, and a relentless legal battle. But at the root of this story is the question of police power: how they wield it and why we grant it to them.

Please join journalists Taya Graham and Stephen Janis for this important episode of the Police Accountability Report!
