Today the INSIDER EXCLUSIVE “Goes Behind The Headlines” in Police Brutality – Malcolm Ferguson’s Story” ….. to examine how famed New York lawyer, Seth A. Harris – Ptr Burns & Harris, successfully got justice for Malcolm Ferguson and his family with a Record Breaking Verdict of $10.5 Million dollars AGAINST the New York Police Department…
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 AND 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
This Special INSIDER EXCLUSIVE investigation discovered….. that police brutality is persistent and rampant across America….AND that systems to deal with abuse have FAILED….
And that 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.
You will see how Seth Harris proved this case by exposing the lies and the contradictions of the various NYPD police officers…
As Seth has often said….. “the problem of Police Brutality is much more widespread than most Americans are willing to admit. …….Our nation practices….. a selective blindness……In this great and strong nation, we have all become unwitting accomplices to the continuation of the conflict”.
Seth has earned the highest respect from citizens and lawyers alike…. as one of the best Civil Rights Trial lawyers in New York ….. and in the nation. He has seen many innocent & hard-working people become VICTIMS of the Police Brutality
He understands that Police brutality is one of the most serious, enduring, and divisive human rights violations in the United States. The problem is not just in New York…BUT nationwide….AND its nature is institutionalized. AND BECAUSE OF THAT…..He is driven to fight for people who had been harmed by the willful or negligent actions of others..
He…Learned A long Time ago ….that “IF A MAN hasn’t discovered something that he will die for… He isn’t fit to live.” His goals….. Not ONLY To get Justice for their clients…
BUT To make sure ALL Americans have the right to a fair trial, honest cops, impartial prosecutors, and fair judges with NO AGENDAs…
BECAUSE “INJUSTICE ANYWHERE…..IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE” !!!
“AND Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just …..may be powerful,
AND… whatever is powerful may be just.”….
