Read more to learn about what it means to be the victim of police brutality or excessive force.
Police officers sometimes turn their duty to enforce the law into an opportunity to physically hurt someone. Handcuffs are put on too tight. Punches are made to the head and face. Bones are broken. Guns are fired. Lives suffer and are lost. When the police use force that is unreasonable under the circumstances, victims are able to sue the city police department that caused them to undergo excessive force at the hands of one or more police officers.
Very rarely, police officers act in a way that shows a reckless disregard for the rights or life of a citizen. Making this situation all the more difficult, when the unreasonable force occurs, officers very rarely have the ability to address the issue with the overly-aggressive officer. The politics of the department don’t support that kind of thing. The victim is often too afraid to contact the chief. And the community suffers as it deals with the consequences: a loss of faith in the department, a loss of trust, and a loss of respect for all of the officers.
