Eric Brandt is a well-known, albeit controversial, figure in the cop watching community and beyond. Brandt’s tactics may be abrasive, but have they led to real police reform?

These are the questions we explore in depth on this week’s PAR: We examine Brandt’s recent court victories in light of the debate over what constitutes real progress towards making law enforcement responsive to the community.
