Police officers in West Covina and throughout California are usually dedicated, moral, and ethical. They work hard, risk their lives, exhibit patience, and work in a stressful environment. Police officers also have a great deal of power bestowed upon them by the government and have a great deal of influence on the community and citizens around them. It is when this power and influence is abused, they can cause the most damage.

WHAT IS POLICE BRUTALITY?
Police brutality is the use of excessive force by a police officer. If the force a police officer uses exceeds what is reasonably necessary to carry out his lawful duties, he may be held liable for police brutality. Examples of police brutality include but are not limited to the following:
- racial profiling
- unnecessary physical violence
- unnecessary and intrusive strip searches.
These are just a few examples of police brutality. Police abuse/brutality is an extremely rare occurrence, but it is important to be aware of your rights in the event your knowledge of them may be tested by an unruly police officer
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Oftentimes, a victim of police officer abuse ends up in jail and will not be able to do everything that needs to be done. However, in the fortunate event that you are free to act, I recommend that you do the following:
- Get the right medical attention.
- Take notes of what happened before you forget the details.
- Take photos of yourself, your injuries, your surroundings, and anything else you might think would be relevant.
- Take down the names of any and all witnesses.
- Call Lem to discuss your case.
GET YOUR LIFE BACK TO NORMAL
If you're injured, make sure to get the right medical attention to tend to your injuries. Even if you think you will be able to heal without going to the hospital, it is important that you get examined by a doctor so you know the full extent of the injuries you have suffered as a result of police brutality. If you have a case, I can help you recover your lost wages, medical expenses, diminished work capacity, and pain and suffering.
