Known for his role in the Occupy Denver movement and his controversial, even profane, manner of exercising his First Amendment rights, Eric Brandt has been arrested roughly 200 times while protesting police brutality and advocating for reform. But he’s also quietly racked up key victories in court.

Brandt is a well-known, albeit controversial, figure in the cop watching community and beyond. His tactics may be abrasive, but have they led to real police reform? Or, as others have claimed, is he just a gadfly whose antics are more provocative than substantive? 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.
