Police abuse remains one of the most serious and divisive human rights violations in the United States today!
The horrific images of Rodney King being beat by the LAPD is one of the most blatant reminders of police brutality against innocent victims.
The excessive use of force by police officers, including unjustified shootings, severe beatings, and fatal chokings, persists. Because overwhelming barriers to accountability make it possible for officers who commit human rights violations to escape due punishment and often to repeat their offenses.
Police or public officials greet each new report of brutality with denials or explain that the act was just an aberration, while the administrative and criminal systems that should deter these abuses by holding officers accountable instead… virtually guarantee them impunity
In this Special Insider Exclusive “Justice in America – “Justice in America – Elena Mondragon’s Story”, our team investigators discovered that police brutality is persistent and rampant across America….and that systems to deal with abuse have FAILED. Victims seeking redress face daunting obstacles at every point in the process, ranging from overt intimidation to the reluctance of local and federal prosecutors to take on brutality cases of officers who have committed these human rights violations.
Despite claims to the contrary from city officials where abuses have become scandals in the media, efforts to make meaningful reforms have fallen short. The barriers to accountability are remarkably similar from city to city. Shortcomings in recruitment, training, and management are common to all……
So is the fact that officers who repeatedly commit human rights violations tend to be a small minority…. who taint entire police departments…. but are protected routinely by the silence of their fellow officers and by flawed systems of reporting, oversight, and accountability.
