“What are my rights under the Constitution?”
The Constitution offers many protections against police brutality and other forms of police misconduct.
Fourth Amendment — The Fourth Amendment protects a person from “unreasonable” search and seizure. In general, searches and seizures must be cleared in advance by a judge. When a search is made in a routine traffic stop or while an officer is on patrol, the officer must have probable cause that a crime has been committed.
Fifth Amendment — The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution protects an individual from making self-incriminating statements. Anyone placed under arrest must be read their “Miranda” rights, which provides for your “right to remain silent.” The Fifth Amendment also requires that all people are treated with due process.
Eighth Amendment — The Eighth Amendment protects people from “cruel and unusual punishment.” It prohibits punishments that are disproportionate to the offense, and has also been interpreted to protect individuals from use of excessive force or abuse by the police while in custody.
Fourteenth Amendment — In conjunction with the Fifth Amendment’s “Due Process” clause, the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees the right to due process. The Fourteenth Amendment states that no person shall be denied life, liberty, or property without due process of law. This applies to property searches and seizures, use of police violence, and even interrogation techniques.
If you believe your Constitutional rights have been violated, you deserve justice and you may be entitled to financial compensation.
