Macroaggression In Chicago: Police Brutality In Chicago Is Not New

For decades, the news headlines daily report incidents of police brutality. If you have experienced police brutality or excessive use of force firsthand, do not be afraid to seek justice. Macroaggression by a few police officers has spread public distrust throughout the city. It is essential to hold those responsible accountable for their misconduct.

Do not be afraid to step forward. Call Cierra Norris. She is not afraid to uphold your constitutional rights and stand up to:

  • Use of excessive force
  • Use of deadly force
  • Verbal attacks
  • Racial profiling
  • Unreasonable searches or seizures of your person or property
  • False arrest
  • Malicious behavior
  • Sexual assault or rape
  • False imprisonment
  • Deaths in custody

If a police officer or corrections officer violates your rights – which the U.S. Constitution protects – you may have standing to file a lawsuit against the officer in civil court.

Section 1983 Claims: Battling Police Misconduct One Case At A Time

Federal law permits filing a civil rights lawsuit, called a Section 1983 claim, when a law officer or corrections officer, while acting under the “color of law,” violates a person’s protected rights, privileges or immunities. For example, when a police officer makes a false arrest or when a corrections officer verbally abuses an inmate, they are misusing their authority and power, thus acting under the color of law.

These cases are complex. An experienced attorney can help you file a claim to seek an injunction or monetary compensation for damages, including punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
