This paper presents an investigational analysis to determine how much force is considered excessive, thus qualifying as police brutality and whether or not police brutality is persisting unchecked within the United States. It validates the concept that police officers act more out of tyranny and excessive power than out of a genuine concern for the needs of the people.

From the Paper:

"Police brutality, or the excessive use of force by police officers to contain common citizens, is on the rise in the United States. More and more innocent victims are losing their lives as a result of police officers and agents that are under trained and trapped in an ancient mind-frame, which dictates that the role of the police officer is to capture the bad guy rather than protect the innocent citizen. Police officers working in agencies in modern society far too often feel the need to establish authority and superiority by harming citizens rather than by acting as guardians and representatives of the people of this country."
