New Jersey Police Misconduct Lawyers – Representing Victims of Police Brutality
Being arrested for a criminal offense does not give the police the authority to use excessive or unnecessary physical force during or after an arrest. And while Amnesty International proclaims that police brutality in the United States is at epidemic levels, pursuing these cases is difficult. “Problem officers” often file false reports claiming that any injuries resulted from resisting arrest or that injuries were self inflicted in a jail cell. In addition, prosecutors tend to give more credibility to police officers than criminal suspects, and officers tend to stick to the blue code of silence.
