Arresting Power provides a historical and political analysis of the role of police in contemporary society and the history of policing in the United States. It provides a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland, its history of exclusion laws,racial profiling, gentrification practices and policing along lines of race and class. This fascinating documentary features interviews with families of people who were killed by Portland police, victims of everyday harassment and intimidation, as well as local activists, historians and community organizers. The film explores a 50 year history of local reform and abolition movements and introduces viewers to community leaders including Walidah Imarisha, author of the Oregon Black History Timeline, JoAnn Hardesty and Rev. Dr. LeRoy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice and Police Reform, Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch and Kent Ford, founder of the Portland chapter of the Black Panther Party.
