The police and other law enforcers need to use force every day to handle uncooperative people, to break up a fight, etc. Unfortunately, this force can be abused by certain law enforcers in certain settings. This is what the law defines as excessive force. Although the term “excessive force” is not concretely defined in terms of actions, it can be defined as any act by a law enforcer that inhibits a person’s constitutional rights.
The subject of police brutality and excessive force is alive today more than ever. So it’s important to know your rights.
