Civil Rights Lawyers To Fight Police Brutality
Law enforcement work is a difficult and life-threatening job, with extremely high levels of stress. The majority of police officers are honest and committed to upholding the civil rights and liberties as guaranteed by the supreme law of the United States – the United States Constitution. The sacrifices made by law enforcement officers on our behalf are often under-appreciated and unnoticed. Unfortunately, abuse of power and violation of our trust does happen, and while instances of police brutality are statistically rare, even just one case of police brutality is one too many.

Police brutality or mistreatment is basically defined as use of excessive force beyond what is necessary to handle a situation when dealing with civilians. Police brutality or mistreatment comes in many forms. The most obvious is brutality by physical force on a helpless or restrained individual, but mistreatment also includes more subtle forms such as false arrest, racial profiling or political repression.
As a victim of police brutality or mistreatment, it is important you act as soon as possible after your incident.
