Police brutality is a term used to describe any excessive and unnecessary physical force, assault, or verbal abuse used by law enforcement when dealing with the public. The United States Code, which are the laws that govern the day-to-day running of the country, state that any person working under the authority of a state law enforcement body who violates the civil rights of anyone in the United States is liable to pay for any damages they cause.
There are some widely known cases of police brutality, but there are thousands more that never receive nationwide media attention. Any time a police officer abuses his or her authority and inflicts undue suffering on any person, it is an affront to not only the victim him/herself, but to society as a whole. The people we depend on to protect us from criminal aggressors should never become the aggressors themselves.
If you or someone you know was the victim of physical, mental, or verbal police brutality, you may be entitled to take action against the perpetrators. Let a knowledgeable, experienced attorney at Turner & Turner guide you through the complex, confusing, and difficult proceedings required to take abusive law enforcement officers to justice.
