A police officer legally, can only use force that is proportionate to the situation and threat posed by another person. An officer cannot injure someone without just cause. When an officer uses unnecessary force or brutality, it violates that individual’s civil rights. Furthermore, it can cause serious injuries or death. A personal injury lawsuit that seeks compensation for physical injuries or death is a means for justice.
STUN GUN AND TASER USE
Stun guns and Tasers are supposed to be only stopping, non- lethal force. Actually, there have been 334 fatalities linked to police Taser use. Additionally, there were 905 victims injured by stun guns who were unarmed and did not pose a threat. The excessive use of a Taser can cause permanent or even fatl injury due to repeated electrocution
Officers are only legally allowed to fire their weapons as a last resort. For example, when their life or the lives of others are in serious danger.
