A 73-year-old grandmother with dementia is thrown to the ground and arrested, and the arresting officers are caught laughing while reviewing their bodycam footage. In this episode of PAR, we examine how this case, a horrifying display of cruelty on its own, is also symptomatic of a more widespread culture of brutality that has been cultivated in the police department of Loveland, Colorado. Hosts Taya Graham and Stephen Janis investigate four separate disturbing, brutal arrests in Loveland, and speak with civil rights attorney Sarah Shielke about her fight to secure justice for these victims, and about the need for broader police reform.
