Know Your Constitutional Rights

You are protected against police brutality by the United States Constitution. Specific amendments that may be involved in filing a police brutality complaint or lawsuit include:

  • Fourth Amendment — This amendment protects people from unreasonable search and seizure. In the United States, most searches and seizures must be authorized by a warrant granted by a court. More routine searches, such as those conducted at traffic stops and on patrol, must meet the standard of “probable cause.”
  • Fifth Amendment — The Fifth Amendment protects individuals from self-incrimination. The so-called Miranda rights — “You have the right to remain silent,” etc. — must be read by police officers to those under arrest.
  • Eighth Amendment — The Eighth Amendment prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment,” which the Supreme Court has defined as punishment that “shocks the conscience.” This amendment may be relevant in cases involving excessive use of force, physical or sexual assault against those in custody, or denial of medical care to suspects and inmates.
  • Fourteenth Amendment — The Fourteenth Amendment, in addition to the Fifth Amendment, guarantees individuals that they will not be denied life, liberty or property without due process of law. This amendment can apply in cases involving death due to potentially excessive use of force, denial of medical care to those in custody, and other scenarios.
