Police Brutality in Chicago, Illinois

Police brutality refers to the inappropriate use of excessive force in a situation involving the police and citizens that can include physical, verbal, psychological or sexual abuse. Police brutality or misconduct can include false arrest, intimidation, racial profiling, political repression, surveillance abuse, sexual harassment and police corruption.

Every citizen has the right to expect law enforcement to obey the laws of the constitution and not use police brutality tactics against them or against even those who may be accused of a crime. The majority of victims of police misconduct and brutality are minorities or the so-called working class. A routine traffic stop should not be a matter of life or death for Chicagoans, but in some instances it is exactly that.

When the police abuse their power and cause harm to an individual, the victim can file a police brutality lawsuit. The Cochran Firm has a long standing tradition of civil rights advocacy and is well known for its excellent record of obtaining justice and financial compensation for their clients for insults and injuries incurred by police misconduct or brutality.
