Growing up as children we are taught the police are there to help. Whether it’s when we get lost, or for a more serious crime such as assault, or kidnapping we are told to call the police. However all over the place you either hear people say “it’s the cops, it’s the police; gotta go!” This was something many people didn’t understand, the vast majority of the population thought it was because the people saying these things must be doing something they shouldn’t be doing. As we know from the recent explosion of misconduct accusations in the news, that thinking is flawed.
Police officers have a vast scope of authority. They can exceed the speed limits, apply deadly force, seize personal property. Many times this is part of the daily job of the police, except when it’s not. Sometimes they use that authority in ways that are unethical, which violates your civil rights. The things that make officers participate in misconduct are unclear. What is clear are the indicators that you may be the victim of police misconduct.
