In 2014 alone, the City of Chicago owed police brutality victims $100 million in lawsuit settlements. Police in Chicago have been videotaped viciously beating, strip-searching and stopping residents without cause.
Police misconduct cases in Chicago have also involved torture in order to get confessions from individuals whether they were guilty or not. Chicago Police are notorious for violating the civil and constitutional rights of Cook County residents.
The truth is that while only the most high-profile police brutality cases are discussed in the media, there are thousands of smaller incidents where civil and constitutional rights are violated.
Police brutality occurs when a police officer abuses his or her authority. Police misconduct can have violent and injurious implications. Police brutality occurs when:
- Excessive use of force
- Physical and psychological intimidation
- Sexual abuse
- Racial profiling
