An act of police brutality in progress.

Some police officers, prison guards, and government agents are known to beat up criminals unlawfully. This is known as police brutality.

Most likely, the motive behind this is not that they hate or have something against the condemned, but because they wanted to have fun 'experimenting' on how people reacts to pain. They get away with their crimes because they're cops (which is Common to Rare Occasions) but sometimes backfired resulting them getting caught Like Derek and Tou.

Also, when they are torturing a criminal, they cover the close circuit television (CCTV) with tape, so that their unlawful actions won't be captured.

This ensures that they would still be trusted by their more lawful superiors, which makes them a massive hypocrite.

The common punishments of Police Brutality is that the police officer(s) will be permanently fired from their job, in rare Occasions they get arrested and sent to prison.

Signs of police brutality and how to prevent police brutality

Notable villains who have committed this act

Examples of police brutality in countries:

United States

There have been many cases of police brutality in US history, most against African American, Asian American and Native American citizens, immigrants, or protesters at protests. During the mid-50s and early 70s, there was an FBI program called COINTELPRO, which served for the repression and espionage of African-American, communist, feminist organizations or simply dissidents to the government. Even today there are many cases of Native American, and African American civilians (Some Occasions Whites, Asians and immigrants) killed or severely tortured by American police officers, such as Michael Brown, Rodney King, Tamir Rice, Jacob Blake, Rayshard Brooks, Loreal Tsingine, Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, George Floyd, Angelo Quinto and Joseph Finley Jr., etc.

Chile

In Chile, the "Carabineros de Chile" (the name given to the police in Chile), have been involved in many cases of police brutality. During the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship, Carabineros de Chile was involved in many events of violation of human rights. Already in current times, Carabineros de Chile has been accused of committing multiple abuses of power against the indigenous people of the Mapuches in the region of La Araucanía, and they were also accused of human rights violations during the protests in Chile between 2019 and 2020.

Nigeria

In Nigeria, most incidents of police brutality are perpetrated by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, or SARS. Nigerians have shared both stories and video evidence of how members of SARS engaged in kidnapping, murder, theft, rape, torture, unlawful arrests, humiliation, unlawful detention, extrajudicial killings, and extortion in Nigeria. SARS officers have been alleged to profile youths based on fashion choices, mount illegal road blocks and searches, conduct unwarranted temperature checks, arrest without warrant, rape women, and extort young Nigerians for driving exotic vehicles and using iPhones. The unit was disbanded in October 2020 following mass demonstrations.

Poland

In the Polish People's Republic during the Cold War, police brutality was widespread and was mostly perpetrated by the ZOMO, which were paramilitary riot police. They gained the most of their infamy during the period of martial law in Poland. During this time period their brutal actions against peaceful protesters often affiliated with the oppositionist Solidarity movement, and the subsequent lack of prosecution of those responsible for deaths of protesters, were major factors in bringing down the communist regime. Since 1990 several trials against former ZOMO members and their political leaders took place, most prominently in the case of the massacre in the Wujek Coal Mine (where nine people were killed and 21 wounded when Katowice's Special Platoon opened fire on the striking miners in 1981 in the bloodiest incident of the martial law era).

Nazi Germany

Police brutality became common in Germany following Adolf Hitler's rise to power, particularly when the Holocaust got underway. SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler established the Ordnungspolizei as the official police force of Nazi Germany, giving them nearly unlimited power to persecute ideological opponents and "undesirables" of the Nazi regime such as Jews, freemasons, the churches, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and other groups defined as "asocial". The Nazi conception of criminality was racial and biological, holding that criminal traits were hereditary, and had to be exterminated to purify German blood. As a result, even ordinary criminals were consigned to concentration camps to remove them from the German racial community (Volksgemeinschaft) and ultimately exterminate them.
