Examples of Police Brutality

In 2007, the U.S. Justice Department reported a 25 percent increase in cases involving the use of excessive force or similar tactics by police, prison guards and other law enforcement officials. Police brutality includes:

  • Unnecessary use of a taser gun, pepper spray or a police dog
  • Beating with fists or a baton
  • Choking
  • Body slamming
  • Slamming the victim’s head against an object
  • Prisoner abuse

If an officer of the law assaulted you without provocation, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering. We care about your injuries, which is why we will send our investigators to your home or hospital.

How Prevalent Is Police Misconduct?

Police misconduct encompasses more than just brutality. For example, a police officer cannot arrest someone for no reason. So how widespread is police misconduct? According to the National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project (NPMSRP), in 2010 there were:

  • 4,861 reports of police misconduct
  • 6,613 law enforcement officers involved in misconduct incidents
  • 6,826 alleged victims of police misconduct
  • 1,575 officers involved in excessive force reports

The Law Office of Steven Wildstein, P.C. represents victims of police misconduct who have been beaten up, tased, seriously injured or wrongfully arrested. If your rights were violated, let us fight for you.
