Police Brutality in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Police brutality or misconduct is a grave civil rights violation. You may feel powerless when confronted with police brutality, but you have the right to seek financial compensation and justice for your injuries and hold the offending police officer accountable for actions that tarnish fellow police officers as well.

Police brutality is the unlawful use of excessive force, threats, physical and verbal abuse, unjustified shootings, choking, fatal beatings, misuse of pepper spray or stun guns, sexual assault, racial profiling, false arrest, corruption and bribes.

Most police officers do serve and protect the citizens of their communities to the best of their ability, while some officers abuse their power. In some cases physical force is justified in order to restrain a suspect or to protect the police officers and others from serious bodily harm, but there are instances when some police officers cross the line and abuse their authority.
