New York police violently attacking unemployed workers in Tompkins Square Park, 1874.
Police brutality is the wanton use of excessive force, usually physical, but potentially in the form of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer.
Widespread police brutality exists in many countries, even those that prosecute it. It is one of several forms of police misconduct, which include: false arrest; intimidation; racial profiling; political repression; surveillance abuse; sexual abuse; and police corruption. However, as aforementioned, it may involve physical force but never reaching death under police custody.Although illegal, it can be done under the color of law.
