Police officers are required to use force during the line of duty. Most of the time, this force is appropriate considering the job and taking their own safety and the safety of surrounding individuals into account. On the other hand, citizens also have the right to fair treatment and many officers forget this. In some occasions, excessive force or brutality is used by an officer of the law. Most commonly, power is abused by the authorities and someone gets seriously hurt as a result. Cops are rarely held accountable, but you need to protect your rights given to you and seek justice for the wrongdoing committed. Do not be intimidated or scared and don’t let the responsible escape justice. If you have been injured because of an instance of misconduct, you are entitled to compensation under both state and federal laws.
