It’s about time to talk about how police brutality got to this point. It was a gradual process. I’m here to offer a historian’s perspective on these issues, because it is a long and tortuous path from early policing to the heavily militarized police we have today. Interestingly enough, a lot of that beginning has to do with demilitarization, and for the last half century, that hard line between policing and domestic usage of the Army has steadily eroded away

Wiki: Police brutality or police violence is legally defined as a civil rights violation where officers exercise undue or excessive force against a subject. This includes, but is not limited to, bullying, physical or verbal harassment, physical or mental injury, property damage, and death.[1] In some countries, “the color of law” protects officers from ambiguous situations
