Do you have a police brutality claim in High Point NC? 

Police brutality is a term that can encompass all types of misconduct by police officers or other law enforcement authorities. Types of misconduct that can be classified as police brutality include:

  • Unnecessary or excessive use of force
  • Unwarranted physical assault against a person in custody
  • Sexual assault or abuse against a person in custody
  • Unnecessarily extreme interrogation techniques
  • Denial of medical care to a person in custody
  • And many more…

At its core, police brutality involves a violation of an individual’s Constitutional rights.

The Constitutional Amendments most frequently associated with police brutality and misconduct include:

The Fourth Amendment — The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects us from unreasonable search and seizure. In most cases, for instances, police officers must obtain a warrant from a court to search private property. And in cases such as searches during routine traffic stops or patrols, an officer must have “probable cause” that a crime has been committed.

Police Brutality Lawyers Serving High Point NC - Riddle & BrantleyThe Fifth Amendment — The Fifth Amendment guarantees an individual’s protection against self-incrimination. The “Miranda” warning, in which an officer must advise that suspects “have the right to remain silent” — stems from this amendment.

The Eighth Amendment — The Eighth Amendment protects people from “cruel and unusual punishment.” In the context of police brutality, this amendment can apply to situations in which those in custody are assaulted, or denied medical care, among other scenarios.

The Fourteenth Amendment — Along with the “due process” clause of the Fifth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees an individual’s right to due process under the law. This amendment states that an individual cannot be denied life, liberty or property without due process. This may apply in cases in which potentially excessive force results in serious injury or death, or a search is conducted without a warrant.
