Police Brutality Lawyers in Ohio
Police Brutality Lawsuits
Having a badge and a gun does not give a police officer the right or authority to act with unreasonable or excessive force. Police brutality violates your civil rights under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Police brutality is also a violation of Section 1983 of the Federal Civil Rights Act. Section 1983 allows individuals to sue police officers in Ohio or federal courts for police brutality and other civil rights violations.
Unfortunately, victims of police brutality are often afraid to come forward. And frequently when they do, their complaints concerning police misconduct are simply ignored.
