While the police provide many valuable services to our communities, the people of Washington State need to be protected from police brutality. Some police officers commit despicable acts against the public taking advantage of their position of power and engage in police brutality and abuse.
Protecting The Residents of Washington State
At Bishop Legal, we have more than 15 years of experience fighting for the civil rights of the seriously injured in Washington. We believe a culture that accepts police brutality should not be tolerated and that the wrongdoers and the department should be held accountable.
We handle police brutality cases involving:
- Excessive Force
- Wrongful Arrest
- False Imprisonment
- High-speed police car chases
- Taser injuries
- Wrongful shootings
The residents of Washington have rights and the police need to follow the law. Police officers causing bodily harm to the public and jail inmates is unacceptable.
Recent Police Abuse and Brutality Cases
Recently, Washington State has had several high-profile police abuses of power including:
- The Seattle Police shooting and killing of deaf Native American wood carver John T. Williams in 2010
- The Seattle Police beating and use of racial epithets of a Mexican American man in 2010
- The Seattle Police tackling of an innocent suspect into a wall resulting in paralysis in 2009
