Civil Rights Violations by Police
Another form of civil rights violation occurs when a state actor, such as a police officer, government officer or other public official commits an act which violates a person’s civil rights. For example, a police officer may use excessive force upon an individual during or after an arrest. Have your rights been violated? As a Kentucky citizen, you have the ability to bringing a suit in state court or federal court against the bad actor.
