What Is Police Brutality?
There have been numerous recent claims of police officers using excessive force across the United States, and images and videos of such incidents have triggered considerable public unrest. Police shootings, beatings with batons, excessive use of Tasers or other “non-lethal” weapons, and other types of police brutality can cause serious injuries or even the wrongful deaths of undeserving victims.
Police brutality involves an excessive use of force by law enforcement personnel while performing their official duties. This term also applies to unreasonable force in penal facilities. While police brutality is typically associated with causing physical harm, intimidation tactics and other misconduct can cause purely psychological injuries. Whether the harm is physical or psychological in nature, it is unnecessary and unwarranted and should be exposed.
