Police Brutality Lawyer in Tucson, Arizona
Impacted or Injured by Police Brutality?
Police brutality is the unwarranted or excessive display of force by police against civilians. When police act with prejudice, brutality, and malice, it is against your rights.
If you are injured by the following acts, you have been a victim of police brutality and may be liable to fight for compensation:
- Excessive or unnecessary force
- Forced or coerced confessions
- False arrest
- Falsified evidence
- Illegal search and seizure
- Inmate abuse
- Inappropriate use of tasers, nightsticks, and pepper spray
- Racial profiling
- Sexual abuse
- Threats of violence
- Verbal abuse
- Wrongful death
- Wrongful shootings
Police brutality is inexcusable at any level. The duty of police officers is to try and prevent crime, but more often than not, they are called to the scene in the moment or to document and investigate after the fact. Far too often police act with implicit bias or fear, causing officers to reach outside of their duties. When police make quick, life-altering decisions, officers ruin community trust, especially in BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) where police brutality happens at alarming rates.
