Bronx Police Brutality Lawyer
Seeking Justice for Those Unlawfully Mistreated by Law Enforcement Officials
The laws in New York and the U.S. were developed to ensure the safety of everyone in this country. Many statutes are concerned with crimes that involve conduct that could cause serious harm to others, and the individuals accused may be engaging in dangerous behavior. As such, those entrusted to uphold the laws – police officers and other government agents – may, depending on the circumstances, use some form of force to take the person into custody. Unfortunately, officers might engage in conduct that goes beyond what is considered necessary for the specific situation and commit excessive physical acts against individuals – what is known as police brutality.
