There is no room in our society for those who are responsible for protecting us to brutalize us. Unfortunately, New Yorkers have seen firsthand the results of years of inadequate police training and cultural discrimination that has resulted in police shootings and brutality.
Police brutality is the excessive use of force by a police officer. When a police officer engages in an action that deprives a person of their civil rights or partakes in inappropriate or illegal behavior they may be liable under Federal and State laws.
As New Yorkers have peacefully protested against such abuses, the police have responded by conducting mass arrests, as well as the use of tear gas and pepper spray.
Police officers are trained under the law to use no more force than necessary when dealing with the public. However, some police officers operate under their own rules, depriving New Yorkers of their civil rights. These officers tarnish the reputation of honest and hardworking law enforcement personnel throughout the State.
