***Police Brutality Attorney - Police Shootings
A police officer should only draw his or her weapon as an absolute last resort to stop a person. Although many police officers realize the seriousness of using their firearms, a small percentage of these people fail to grasp the power they wield and use their guns in inappropriate ways.
There are very strict conventions that govern exactly when and how police officers can use their weapons to stop a suspect. Even though law enforcement communities frown upon the use of lethal force to stop a suspect, a few reckless individuals can tarnish the reputation of an entire department.
If you or someone you know was the victim of a police shooting, you may have the right to take action. The laws that apply to police shootings are extraordinarily complex and confusing, but our team of dedicated legal professionals will fight for your case and see you are justly compensated for your suffering. Contact us today.
***Police Brutality - False Arrest Lawsuits
One of the most frequently abused police powers is the ability of law enforcement officers to detain and arrest people for no reason. False Arrest is easier to quantify than excessive force, because while the amount of power needed to perform a job is questionable, the ability to detain a person suspected of a crime is very clear and detailed.
Although police can only detain people on the grounds of “reasonable suspicion” or because of probable cause that the person has committed a crime, some unscrupulous officers use their power to arrest people for their own personal reasons. This flagrant abuse of power undermines the trust and faith people have in those they pay to protect them.
If you have been subjected to a false arrest you may have the right to seek damages against those who are liable. You need to have dedicated and experienced counsel in order to pursue justice against those who abuse their power as law enforcement officers. You need not be a victim of unchecked power any longer.
***Police Brutality - Abuse of Power
Abuse of power is a catch-all term for the ways police officers can abuse their positions in law enforcement to take advantage of those they are supposed to serve and protect. Police officers are bound by United States Code 42, section 1983 that states any person who acts as a law enforcement officer is liable for any offenses they commit in violation of a person’s civil rights.
As part of their jobs, police can detain, arrest, and kill people. Although most peace officers take their duty to protect and serve the public very seriously, a small percentage will always abuse their power to fulfill selfish personal desires and goals. Abuse of police power usually includes excessive force, false arrest, assault, and illegal killings. Many people who are victims of police abuse of power feel they have no recourse or ability to take action against those who injure them.
Fortunately, those who enforce the law are not above the law. If you or someone you know has been a victim of abuse of power you may have the right to seek compensation for the injury and damage you suffer. Take action against those who abuse their power and cause you harm. Contact a dedicated and experienced lawyer today.

Okay... This is the reason this country has sooo many lawsuits. Some of which are really frivolous. Yes, I know that some of the lawsuits are filed for good reasons, but I do think that this undermines the authority of any police force out there, at all levels. It is no wonder that criminals have so little respect for our legal system.

I was a 50 yr old woman who has supported the community for the better, often on a volunteer basis. No arrest record but depressed following an accident. I asked a houseguest to leave and after he was verbally abusive and took his belongings to the door, decided he wanted to return to my bedroom to retrieve my belongings. I refused to allow him. I pay the mortgage, utilities and am the homeowner. Things were calm until the police officer showed up and said that I was someone else that he had arrested. Any information I attempted to provide seemed to agitate him, so I just repeated that I wanted the guest to go.

The officer pointed a gun in my face and told me he would arrest me if I did not give permission. I refused to give permission but said I would not interfere with his directive but believe I am within my right to insist that the guest leave immediately so that I can go to bed. The officer used excessive force and injured me. My medical bills are close to $40,000. He took me to an alley and dropped me on my back on a backboard.

Juries side with cops and so few attorneys want to take these cases. Attorneys claim that they can not win. How is this. Are people this stupid that they believe these cops that lie. This one did not lie. He called it obstruction, failure to follow his order. He abused me for hours and took me to magistrate where my bare body was exposed to criminals and former co workers. I have been very traumatized by this. Its nice to recite what should be, but the reality is that there are few attorneys that will help.

That is a terrible story, when I look around my hometown all the city police are the assholes I went to school with. They were a waste of human space then and they are now. What kind of society do we live in when anyone can become a city cop. Now they have to power to treat people even worse in society. everytime I had an incident with a restraining order that I had on my ex I would call them. All they ever did was ask me if I had taken pictures of him committing the crime. He slashed my tires, slashed my kids pool, cut my phone lines, cut my cable lines, started my yucca on fire in the front yard, got on my roof etc, and all they did was say they could not do anything about it since I didnt have proof. UGH

I'm not sticking up for all police officers. Some are truly no good. But as far as all of them, you have to stop and think about some who can be "assholes" as you called them. Some often work over their shift to finish up everything on a car wreck so the and a person does not realize that most often these wrecks happen right at the end of the shift so those who have been out say all night have a few more hours added instead of going home to rest and come back out the next night. Not to mention those officers who have a wreck with a casualty, they have to go knock on the door of parent, spouses, children or family depending on age and next of kin. You often don't see how some of these GOOD officers cry over the loss of a life, someone they don't even know. This might be something to consider in some places when an officer is not always the friendliest, you don't always know what all they have going on. It is not unusual for one officer to have 5 to 6 cases of more that they may be working on not counting wrecks or things of that nature. They can also risk on rare occasions I know but somehow seems to be getting worse in some surrounding areas were an officer gets shot just for pulling a car over and they would rather try to kill the officer then get caught with whatever it is they have. These are just a few things you all might want to keep in mind with some of them
