Police brutality—any citizen can be a victim. Most policemen are professionals, successfully trained to control their careless and violent impulses. But not all.
Police Brutality Cases
Cuthbert Law Offices, with offices in Petersburg, Virginia and Richmond, Virginia, has handled numerous cases against employees of area police departments. In one such case, a Richmond jury found that a member of the Richmond, Virginia SWAT team had acted with gross negligence when he fired high-tech ammunition through the kitchen door of an occupied dwelling, killing an eighteen year old mother of two children. See Green v. Ingram, 269 Va. 281, 608 S.E.2d 917 (2005).
In another such case, a Petersburg jury found that a patrol officer had acted willfully and wantonly when he pursued a fleeing car until the car crashed, killing two of its three occupants and badly injuring the third. Another case involved a police officer from a nearby town who, while driving at high speeds to a non-emergency call, caused another driver to crash. Another involved an off-duty police officer in a town west of Petersburg who crashed head-on into an approaching car, killing the car’s driver and nearly blinding the dead man’s wife.
