Community members are supposed to be able to trust police, but unfortunately, this trust is sometimes misplaced. Recent issues between police forces and community members have highlighted how far we have to go to rebuild this trust. If you have been victimized by police or you were abused while in jail, you have a right to take legal action.

Far too many people allow abuses to continue because they believe they have no rights. Just because you are being arrested or because you have committed a crime does not mean you should be victimized or abused. Your rights ensure protection from abuses and mistreatment while in jail, even if you have been found guilty of a crime. Even if you feel as if you do not have a say or your complaints are being ignored, the laws are in place to protect you.

He has helped to give a voice to those who need it most when they are mistreated. He understands the system and knows that it is sometimes taken advantage of – something that should never happen.
