When the police overstep their bound of authority, what recourse is there for victims? Can the police just get away with violating a person’s civil rights?
Police officers are employed to protect us from harm, not to mete out physical punishment. The law protects all citizens, including people accused or convicted of crimes, from violence at the hands of the police. The attorneys at Moss & Colella, P.C. provide strong representation to victims of police brutality throughout Michigan, including Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
If you are a victim of police brutality, it is important to contact a lawyer immediately. By law, a police officer may use only as much physical force as is needed to control a situation. If a person is involved in a routine traffic stop or arrest and is respectful and cooperative with the officer, no physical force should be required.
