Summary: Police Misconductuption, Misconduct, And Misconducttion
The statistics are appalling. From April 2009 to June 2010, 5,986 reports of misconduct have been recorded, 382 fatalities were linked to misconduct, and $347,455,000 had been spent in related settlements and judgments (Police Brutality Info, 2013). These numbers are outrageous and unacceptable. CJi Interactive (2011) states that police officers have a code of ethics that they are supposed to abide by and one that will hold them accountable for their actions. I certainly hope that that is the case and these corrupt police officers will be dealt with according to the full standards of the law.
