Police Brutality Effects on Minorities
3. Mental and Physical Problems
Distrust with the Law Enforcement
Police brutality leads to long term emotional distress or death.
Civilians that have experienced police-perpetrated abuse will hesitate to call for police assistance in cases of civilian-on-civilian violence, fearing the cops might worsen the violence or further traumatize victims.
Not only does police brutality affect adults, but it affects everyone. For example, a grandmother's bones were broken. A pregnant woman was violently thrown to the ground. Millions of dollars were paid out to numerous victims of police brutality.
