What Are Your Civil Rights?
First, it is critical that you do some research and study well to know your rights. Only by knowing your rights will you be able to identify the culprits. Stopping people who are taking advantage of your rights is of utmost importance in a free country.
Law enforcement institutions, such as the Police, are meant to protect you. The constitution of the country recognizes pre-existing rights of the citizens. Furthermore, the idea was to limit government and restrain it with the "chains of the Constitution." Particularly relevant, these rights must be implemented, catered to and respected by every government official.
A violation of civil rights takes place when a police officer goes beyond the limits set by the constitution. Almost always, this results in harm to citizens or affects the rights of people in some other way. And there are many ways your civil rights can be affected given below.
What are the Many Ways Your Civil Rights Can Be Violated?
As mentioned above, you must know your civil rights to know the instances when they are being violated. Furthermore, it is imperative that you contact an experienced attorney from Ehline Law when something of this sort has taken place.
Especially if it involved your loved one, it is essential that counsel insulates you. Rather than acting under your emotions, a lawyer stops you from taking a wrong step.
Below are a few types of violations and how to spot them.
Violation Of Due Process – So this happens when police officers step over the line drawn by civil rights. Many of these rights protect you from the police. These rights force a duty on the police. A function like this makes public servants follow certain procedures. And these got designed to keep your rights intact. So for example, if the police are in your house without your permission, you may have a case. Say, for instance, the cop entered without a warrant. Let's say no exception under the law applied for his presence. Hence, now they have violated your civil rights.
Forced Confessions – Sometimes, the police will use force to make an individual admit to a crime. Almost always, victims can argue torture forced the confession. Under pressure and due to beating and torture, people can end up confessing to falsities. So this violates your Natural rights to be free and engage in the pursuit of happiness.
False Arrest – Sometimes, police officers can arrest and put a person behind bars. And this could be despite having no evidence. Or it could be they have microscopic proof of the actual event. And this is called acting under "color of law" and "official right." Also, this is a form of kidnapping and is also a false arrest. So now the victims have no reasonable means of escape. Next, they get jailed. So they are subject to being anally raped by convicts in the County, or State penal systems. Last, this becomes a violation of Title 42, Section 1983, et. seq.
Wrongful Death – Police brutality can result in the wrongful death of the person as well. Even if the person was violent in his conduct, the police do not have the right to torture the person to death.
Unlawful Seizure – Your property cannot get seized unless the police officer has the warrant to do so. So no matter what the situation, if that happened, it is a violation of your civil rights.
Abuse With Taser – Tasers get used by police officers. Often they are for tackling situations where an individual is showing a lack of cooperation. Often, the suspect is behaving violently. However, at times the police officers might use it unnecessarily.
Failure of Intervention – Now this is a tough one. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that municipal police have no duty to protect individuals. But there are instances when public servants assume such a duty. In that case, a citizen may become harmed when the police officer is present at the scene. And if he doesn’t intervene to protect the citizen, there is a violation. In fact, this could be a direct violation of the oath of the police officer.
False Shootouts – Some police shootings may start as a result of wrong interpretation. So bad judgment of a situation can lead to lives lost. Such a shooting may result in harm to innocent citizens. Often it can even take a life of a hostage or a friendly bystander.
But there are many instances where police might deal with a situation in a way that not allowed to by law. Tapping into phones and making videos is another example. So if it is without a person’s permission, it is a violation of civil rights. And this needs compensation.
What Compensation Are You Entitled To?
You will become the right to receive full compensation for all the damage and harm done to you. And like tort cases, you receive compensation for physical, bodily, financial, and property damages. Present and future damages are also considered when there is an award for compensation.
So here’s what you are entitled to:
Expenses you had to make for your medical care, treatment, nursing and stay.
Reimbursement for damages done to your property.
Compensation for income and wages lost due to injuries or false imprisonment.
Loss of consortium and other social discrimination you might face due to false imprisonment.
Suffering and pain that you have gone through as a result of the torture and brutality from the police.
Compensation for emotional distress that came with false arrest. So this could be a violation of property rights or unnecessary torture.
