What is Police Misconduct and What Are Your Rights?
Use of Excessive Force by Police is illegal. Cops are Paid with Taxpayer Money to Protect Americans and Not to Break the Law and Brutalize Them
Even if your loved one is in jail, even if you have broken the law, you have rights. Cops too often abuse their authority or make inexcusable mistakes. Law enforcement officers must be held accountable as much as the next guy. You should not tolerate police misconduct in any form.
The United States Code states that it is unlawful for law enforcement officers to deprive any person of their Constitutional rights. The most common claims in police misconduct cases involve false arrest, malicious prosecution, and excessive force.
Examples of police misconduct include:

There is Hope: Payouts In Police Misconduct Lawsuits and Claims Have Never Been as Large as They Are Today
When cases of police brutality are presented in front of jury, jurors are often appalled, and this can lead to appropriately large compensation amounts. Michael D. LaPorta, a Chicago resident, recently received $44.7 million in a verdict after a bullet from a cop's gun left him disabled.
Bad cops are not luckier when it comes to reaching settlements. Alton Logan, another Chicago man, received $10.2 million after being wrongly imprisoned, thanks to the workings of a dishonest Police Commander for 26 years! Philando Castile, a Minnesota resident, received $3 million after settling an officer misconduct case with the city of St. Anthony Village.
Excessive force is one of the most frequently settled claims. The family of Eric Garner, who died during arrest after NYPD used a chokehold on him, received $5.9 million; he had been seized for selling untaxed cigarettes and was unarmed at the time.
Death in custody claims can also lead to 7-figure settlements. The family of Eric Loberg, a mentally ill Los Angeles man who committed suicide in jail, received a $1.7 million settlement. The mother of Ron Singleton, a New York man who was forcefully arrested and died in custody, while high on illegal substances, received a $1.25 million settlement.

Police misconduct claims must be made within legal time limits (statute of limitations). This is usually a very short period of time, between one and two years in most cases.
But there are more important time limits: as time passes, evidence can be tampered with or disappear, witnesses can forget the details of what they saw, officers have more time to cover their tracks. Your attorney's investigators need to act fast if you want to see any results at all. Filing a police misconduct claim is a race against the clock. You must act now – to make your best case.
Bad cops, police departments, and any institution that allows them to break the law must pay their debt to society.
