    brutalize, strike, mishandle, and much murder citizens speaks to a disappointment of preventive measures. Criminal law can punish and, in a few examples, discourage police violence, however it can 't constrain essential change in how a division is run, managed, drove, and made responsible. According to Marilynn Johnson, antibrutality activists demanded that police responsibility and free oversight must be fortified. In 1998, Human Rights Watch loaned support for this view when it distributed Shielded from Justice, an extensive report on police brutality in New York and thirteen different U.S. urban areas.

The report stated that the individuals who assert that every prominent human rights abuse is a variation committed by a "rogue officer," are overlooking the main issue and the human rights infringement continues in large part in light of the fact that the responsibility frameworks are so damaged. For another instance, Amadou Diallo, a Muslim who worked as a street vendor and had no criminal record, was hit with nineteen bullets by four officers who believed he was pulling out a gun, but a wallet instead was pulled out.

    statistics or actuals, etc. These are points brought up by John M. Grohol, Psy.D (Telling the Good from the Bad: factors in Evaluating Research, 1998).
