Recent headlines have shed an increasingly strong light on the problem of police brutality in the United States. It's important that you know your rights. Just because someone has a badge and a gun does not mean that he or she is above the law.

Our team at Scott H. Palmer, P.C. is here for you.

The police are committed to protect and serve our community. Even when a person is arrested, officers must uphold the constitutional rights of everyone to ensure an arrest is lawful and just. Although situations may arise that result in the use of physical and even deadly force, it is not uncommon for law enforcement officials to use such force to the point of police brutality.

What is Excessive Force by Police?

Excessive force by a police officer does not have a specific definition under federal law. However, excessive force is when a police officer uses force in excess compared to what a police officer would reasonably believe is necessary for the situation. The jury and courts decide whether the situation called for the amount of force used based on the situation in question.
