The police forces are losing their perception of reality, when it comes to the citizens they have sworn to protect. We are no longer human beings to them, just livestock to herd around and bully. What are your thoughts on this situation in the video?
Police brutality, as defined is:
Police brutality is a civil rights violation that occurs when a police officer acts with excessive force by using an amount of force with regards to a civilian that is more than necessary. Excessive force by a law enforcement officers is a violation of a person’s rights. Excessive force is not subject to a precise definition, but it is generally beyond the force a reasonable and prudent law enforcement officer would use under the circumstances.
Force should be used in only the minimum amount needed to achieve a legitimate purpose. Police brutality is a direct violation of the laws within the police force. The use of excessive force is also a direct violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S Constitution regarding cruelty and protection of the laws.
So with this in mind, the man in the video,if we go by the definition above, his civil rights were beyond violated, in this episode of police brutality and excessive force.How much more will we take? Here’s the story behind the video: This man was a passenger in an accident,that hit 5 parked cars. The driver fled the scene. Bystanders held this man until police arrived. He tried to walk away,stating he wasn’t the driver,which he wasn’t. Police are investigating whether the officers actions were justified or excessive.What do you think?. Count off 40 seconds and imagine the pain this man suffered.
