What Is Police Brutality?
The police are allowed by law to use a certain amount of force during the course of their jobs. However, if the police exceed this level of force unnecessarily, they may be found guilty of police brutality. The laws surrounding this were created to protect the rights of citizens to not be injured by the police who are charged with the responsibility of keeping the public safe.
Some examples of police brutality are:
- Shooting a suspect unnecessarily or prematurely
- Any use of force beyond what is needed to apprehend a suspect
- Blatantly beating someone with batons or fists
- Not getting medical attention to an injured suspect
Whether or not your situation is considered “excessive force,” could be something the courts have to determine based on the facts of your case.
