Law enforcement is entrusted to use their power to ensure that citizens feel safe and secure. However, law enforcement can also misuse their power, leading to unlawful acts such as excessive force, bodily injury, coercive sexual conduct, discriminatory harassment, false arrest, and unlawful searches and seizures.
For example, when Derek Chauvin, a police officer, pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, for eight minutes and forty-six seconds, resulting in his death – the excessive use of force inflicted by Officer Chauvin was unwarranted.
