A single dad goes camping with his kids and ends up in handcuffs; Then, PAR talks with Otto the Watchdog, a cop watcher who says he has been targeted for harassment for his First Amendment activities.

PAR continues its ongoing reporting on an often-overlooked phenomenon: the growth of overpolicing and mass incarceration in rural communities. In this episode, we examine in detail the arrest of a Texas cop watcher who was charged for protesting police and has since been caught in a web of legal entanglements that reveal the expanding powers of small-town law enforcement.
