If you have read the introductory comments in this website describing our tendency to enjoy representing the “underdog” or “little guy.” Thus, it should come as no surprise that we harbor a true disdain for people who act as hypocrites or bullies. Police brutality is an unfortunate reality of our society. Make no mistake – we hold such a great respect for law enforcement officers. However, when an officer abuses his position of trust and intentionally hurts or bullies someone, we hold them accountable.
Abuse of Power
Officers are sworn to protect and to serve, which is why it is so offensive when an officer uses excessive force and his power to inflict harm. Police officers have no right to violate the trust and abuse the authority in an effort to cause unnecessary or unwarranted physical harm or death to citizens. Luckily, many police officers around the Commonwealth are beginning to implement the use of dash cameras and body cameras. This video can be instrumental in proving your claim against the police, as excessive force cases often become a “swearing contest.”
