The world around us would ideally be in perfect shape, with no dangerous conditions to put us at risk of injury. But we don't live in a perfect world. The world around us is, sadly, imperfect and with that comes negligence, dilapidation and potentially serious risks to innocent people.

A lawsuit has been settled in the case of a man who was arrested and then beaten by a police officer even though there is no evidence that the arrested man was resisting the arrest.

Police misconduct is unacceptable and the victims of such abuse need to hold the police responsible for this type of behavior.
