What is Police Brutality?

The term ‘police brutality’ is a phrase from common speech; thus its meaning is not well-defined. In general, it connotes the use of excessive force by the police against members of the public. It is accepted that many uses of force by the police cannot be labeled ‘police brutality’ or ‘excessive’, because the use of force is sometimes necessary in police work. - Encyclopedia of Violence, Peace and Conflict
