Curbing Police Brutality in Maryland
By Cohen & Dwin, P.A. on February 15, 2018 | In Personal Injury
Following a six month investigation conducted by The Baltimore Sun, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts have unveiled a plan to curb police brutality in our city. According to The Sun, civil actions taken against multiple police officers following numerous instances of excessive force have been obstructed by a 40-year old law that protects officers from punishment, regardless of their offense. This law, among other inappropriate protections, are now the focus of the City’s sweeping reforms.
