Everyone Has The Right To Have Their Constitutional Rights Upheld
Police have a tough job protecting our streets, but that does not mean they are within the law when violating your rights. Use of excessive force and other misconduct by police officers seems to be occurring in Alabama and all across the country at an alarming rate.
Although police have the authority to use force to uphold the law, they do not have open-ended power to exercise unwarranted and extreme force. In the United States, citizens are protected against such excessive police misconduct under both the 4th Amendment and the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, as well as Section 1983 of the U.S. Code.
