Police Brutality Attorneys Chicago
Help for Victims of Police Brutality and Excessive Force
In Chicago and other cities across the State of Illinois and across the country, police brutality is an unfortunate reality. Whether it involves unnecessary or excessive force (such as handcuffs intentionally placed too tightly or unnecessarily rough treatment) or extreme force (such as beatings, torture, or death), police brutality is itself a crime and cannot be tolerated. The vast majority of police are law abiding public servants that follow the letter of the law. But throughout our country there exist rogue police that believe that they are entitled to use whatever means are necessary to effectuate arrests and apprehend those that they think are guilty of a crime.
Violation of Your Civil Rights in Chicago
Sometimes police are also guilty of misconduct in that they coerce confessions from innocent people, plant drugs or misrepresent and falsify evidence. But regardless of the circumstances, if police are not performing professionally and honestly, then this is a violation of your civil rights and must be confronted head on.
