Anger can lead to police overreactions

The reason that we feel anger is because it's a natural response. When you feel threatened in some way, anger powers an aggressive and often selfish mindset. For most people, this is a common response even to a mild issue -- like getting stuck in a traffic jam on the way to work.

Factors that contribute to how police officers react

When police officers react to a situation, it happens in a split second. They make quick decisions that can have a lasting impact. For instance, if the police react too aggressively, the situation could escalate to one of stark police brutality. When considering the engagement after the fact, even the officer may agree that it was not the right course of action.

Does police brutality stem from a lack of training?

Whenever you hear about cases of police brutality, you probably find yourself asking how it could possibly have happened. How did the situation escalate to that point? How could an officer who may have had a completely clean record get to the breaking point and essentially assault a civilian?

The mental impact of police brutality

There is a very clear physical impact from police brutality, and many victims wind up in the hospital. However, the overall epidemic of brutality can have a drastic mental and emotional impact on an entire community, even those who were not personality victimized themselves.


Some say that New Jersey police departments have issues with excessive force. Naturally, the police must on occasion use force to arrest a suspect. However, when officers go beyond what most would consider a reasonable level of force, they may be crossing the boundary into committing police brutality. The police must be held accountable. Their job is to keep people safe, not cause harm.
