'US courts often side with police in brutality cases'

Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:20PM GMT



Author and human rights activist, Frederick Alexander Meade, criticizes the way police often treat people in the United States.

"Police departments in this country often feel that they have the power to treat the public as they will, often times police officers engage in police brutality," Meade said in an interview with Press TV's U.S. Desk on Thursday.

"They believe that they have the power to do so because the courts in this land often times almost always support them," he said, adding, "When issues of police brutality emerge, the victims bring this to the courts and in the courts in this country they almost always side with the police."

Meade continued that there was a widespread unwritten rule among police officers in the United States known as "the blue code of silence," according to which police officers did not report on each other's misconducts.

Amnesty International has published a report highlighting police brutality across America. The report reads: "Police brutality and use of excessive force has been one of the central themes of Amnesty International's campaign on human rights violations in the USA". Amnesty

In its "United States of America: Rights for All Index," it documented systematic patterns of abuse across America, including "police beatings, unjustified shootings and the use of dangerous restraint techniques to subdue suspects." Amnesty

In early 2010, Injustice Everywhere (IE) published a report on police misconduct across the U.S. which stated one of every 266 officers is accused of a violent crime; one of every 1,875 is charged with homicide; one of every 947 is accused of sexual assault.

Injustice Everywhere also stated that among the 4,778 alleged victims, 258 fatalities were reported. That's one death for every 96 minutes.
