When a prisoner can't get medical care

Every human being deserves medical care when he or she is sick. However, New York residents who are serving time in prison might not always get the medical care they require. Whether it's due to prisoner neglect, negligence or wrongdoing -- if a prisoner can't get medical attention for a serious condition, it could be a violation of the prisoner's civil rights.

Police brutality: When can police use lethal force?

New York City police officers perform the valuable public service of keeping us safe from criminal elements. However, there are times when police become overzealous in their application of the law, in addition to becoming overly violent.

Did you confess to a crime you didn't commit?

It's hard to believe that anyone would do it -- unless you've done it of course -- but falsely confessing to a crime is not that uncommon. For example, among people who suffer a wrongful conviction, having given a false confession happens in one out of every four cases.

For example, if police are frequently called to a club, its security officers likely need more training than those at a club that rarely calls the police.

Who can file a police misconduct complaint?

It seems like you can't turn on the television or read a newspaper these days without seeing information about a police misconduct matter. Some of these instances are downright frightening as they may involve police shooting innocent civilians. You might not think something like this could happen to you or a loved one, but if you or someone you know becomes the victim of police misconduct, you are well within your right to file a complaint.
