    Police brutality is an ugly term and we don’t like to hear about it, but unfortunately it exists.

    Every day, police officers work a hectic but thankless job. They often put their lives at risk to uphold the law and safeguard their citizens. It’s true that a majority of police officers are honest, ethical, hard-working, and committed. However, there are times when police officers exercise excessive control on the lives of citizens. When a police officer abuses his power or position, it not only impacts one citizen but betrays the trust that citizens place on all police officers.

    Police brutality refers to the use of unnecessary force on civilians. Some instances of police brutality include disproportionate use of pepper spray and batons and physical abuse; it may also include pulling a gun to intimidate someone or falsifying an arrest. If you’ve been a victim of police misconduct, it’s important to reach out to legal representatives. The police misconduct attorneys in Louisiana at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have hands-on experience in assisting victims of police misconduct to seek compensation.

    Types of Police Brutality

    When law enforcement officials go beyond the limits of authority and cause needless harm, the victims are eligible to claim reimbursement for injuries and damage.

    Excessive Force: A policeman is allowed to use only that amount of force which is necessary to carry out legal duties. However, officers may use undue physical force to apprehend a suspect. In some instances, police officers resort to unwarranted use of batons, tasers, pepper spray, etc. that may ultimately lead to physical injury.

    False Imprisonment: This arises when a policeman takes an individual into custody without any probable cause or arrest warrant. When a police officer lacks any legal justification behind imprisoning an individual, the victim may file a claim for false arrest.

    Unreasonable Search: Due to increased terrorist attacks and drug trafficking, US courts have expanded police powers. A law enforcement officer may check for weapons at schools, airports and other public buildings. However, there are times when law enforcement officers exceed their authority and carry out unreasonable search. Such situations may be the basis of a legal claim.

    Prison Abuse: Every citizen has certain constitutional rights. Physical abuse, torture, starvation, and failure to control inmate violence are all forms of prison abuse. Any victim of prison abuse is eligible to file a claim. It’s true that fatal police shootings and prison abuse scandals happen all too often.
