Question: I am writing a paper and I need incidents where the media may have made it look like criminal is being victimized by the police. I already have the Rodney King case, but I need more incidents. It can be where they left out information, skewed something, edited a tape...anything. ALL help is appreciated. I need help asap! Cases where the police were not actually at fault. I need some proven cases where the court dismissed it and all. It is for my research paper Ha ha ha YOU must be kidding. Do some research. The tape was editted to leave out where he charged the officer, after he had been tazed twice, and thrown off officers who had tried to subdue him. This was after he was driving intoxicated at a speed of 80 mph and would not pull over because he would be arrested for violating his parole. Perhaps the officers went too far, but they had every right to go home to their families. They couldn't get him under control and if that was the way it had to be done then so be it.

That's a tough one. Usually when the media makes it look as though the criminal is being victimized by the police, it's because the criminal was being victimized by the police. It happens a lot more when there's no video camera around, either. Just because a case was dismissed it doesn't mean the police were not at fault. It takes quite a bit of evidence for them to even get indicted.

Looks like you should do some more research. I was stationed in Europe for 4 years, and I saw plenty of what we would consider "police brutality". It's just that the term doesn't exist there. A lot of people that live in this country are, how can I put this..crybabies. They see an officer beating up an innocent motorist, when in actuality; the officer is delivering knees strikes to a suspect's common peroneal to motivate the suspect to release the officer's taser. I know that some LEOs take it too far occasionally, however for the most part it's just citizens that don't understand procedures and are quick to judge. Edit: Recently, the parasitic group CopWatch, released a video of what they claimed was a man getting beaten mercilessly by the police. What I saw was a non compliant subject refusing to obey officers' instructions while wrestling with them, or more accurately, resisting without violence. I couldn't understand why they didn't faceplant the man. What the video also failed to show was the man taking a swing at the officers and then attempting to take one of the officer's firearm.

You must be kidding. Police were video tapped pounding on King. That wasn't about the "media". Occasionally police go too far. They are human beings like the rest of us. I think you might do better focusing on the rarity of such cases and the fact that they often involve extended chases, dangerous situations, etc. The cases stick with us because they are rarely prosecuted AND because it is so shocking to most people for the police to be the "bad guys." There was a case in NYC where the officers were acquitted of killing a bride groom, Sean Bell, as he was leaving his bachelor party. Here is a n article about the controversial case:

What the hell are you talking about! You have your facts wrong, rodney was definitely the victim here not the police, you best re read the king story. even a racist would side with king not the police. they attacked the man beyond measuire and beat the crap out of him beyond measure it was clearly police brutality. If Rodney were a white man trust me you would see that it was brutality! You must think blacks cant feel pain or something they beat him like an animal.

I think your first step here is going to be learning the language. You have to be able to type like an adult before you write a paper on anything. Here's a few pointers: 1. Rewrite your question so it's a question. Or, a sentence. 2. I am 3. doing/writing 4. brutality. 5. Do you know of any websites 6. economy, morals(?), politics, and education? 7. Also, 8. done 9. issue? I'm sure I missed something....and I'm not saying my English is perfect...but wow do you need some help. And since I've been a jackass, here's a link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_brut...
