Police brutality is the violent form of law enforcement misconduct. Unfortunately, brutality is wide spread throughout the world, as well as, in the United States. The American Press brought to light police violent acts upon the people as early as 1872. This culture of violent conducts, perpetuated by a few unethical officers, has created a widespread fear amongst the people. As a result of which millions of people see the law enforcement officers not as people who are commissioned to serve and protect them, but as their oppressors. This trail of mistrust, which dates back to the dark and savage colonial past, runs deep: especially, amongst the voiceless and the powerless groups, such as minorities, disabled, the young, and the poor.
