Background Information
Police Brutality
is the wanton use of excessive force, usually physical, but also common in forms of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer.

Not all cops are bad but, you hear more about the bad cops than the good.The police involved in the brutal actions are more than likely involved in domestic violence as well as going against laws; however, some cops acts of violence are means to protect themselves even though they end up dead.

Nice cops can be attacked by the very citizens they are trying to protect.
