We rely on them for help in a variety of situations from traffic accidents to home burglary and everything in between. Many people see a police officer as an authority figure, someone who can be trusted. What about when that isn’t the case? There are thousands of cases every year across the country where a police officer or another law enforcement official overstepped their boundaries. A recent case of police brutality involved a young man in Collier County on Florida’s Southwest coast. A 22 year old was driving his motorcycle at excessive speeds when he decided to run from the cops. The police cruiser’s dashboard camera shows the man stopping his bike under his own power and putting his hands above his head in a clear act of giving himself up. What happened next became a viral sensation on the internet. The man is tackled to the ground by an officer while another officer rushes in and begins punching the suspect multiple times. At one point there are four or five officers subduing the man on the ground, all using excessive force for the situation. Throughout the video, the victim is heard pleading with police to stop hitting him, but the police respond with the kind of language that would make a nun blush. Now that the video has surfaced, many are appalled at the actions of the officers. If you are unfamiliar with the case, the video of the incident is posted below. A warning however, the violence and language in the video may be disturbing to watch.</p> <div> <p>The Law Office of Steven Gomberg has long defended those who were the victim of police brutality in West Palm Beach. In fact, we’ve collected nearly $2 million in settlements for those who were wrongfully accused and arrested using excessive force. It’s prudent to remember that police officers, regardless of what the badge says, are human like everyone else. They are just as susceptible to lapses in judgment and poor decision making. The problem is many people are unaware of what rights they actually have when it comes to dealing with the police. For those in the field of law and law enforcement who are interested in learning more about the subject, criminal defense attorney Steven Gomberg is speaking at an <a title="Police Liability Seminar" href="http://www.lorman.com/390865?discount_code=B1246215&p=15999" target="_blank">educational seminar regarding police liability</a> one June 19<sup>th</sup>, 2013 in West Palm Beach. Along with other distinguished attorney’s in the area, Mr. Gomberg will help educate the community on the pitfalls of police liability as well as the do’s and don’ts of defending such a case.</p> <p>Those looking for an experienced <a href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/114238248103578611021/114238248103578611021/" target="_blank">lawyer in West Palm Beach</a> should contact the Law Office of Steven Gomberg as soon as possible.</p> </div> </div><!-- .entry-content --> <div class="entry-utility"> This entry was posted in <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-attorney-west-palm-beach/" rel="category tag">criminal attorney west palm beach</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-defense-attorney-west-palm-beach-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal defense attorney west palm beach fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-defense-wellington-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal defense wellington fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-lawyer-boca-raton-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal lawyer boca raton fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-lawyer-wellington-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal lawyer wellington fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-lawyer-west-palm-beach-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal lawyer west palm beach fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/criminal-trial-lawyer-west-palm-beach-fl/" rel="category tag">criminal trial lawyer west palm beach fl</a>, <a href="http://www.criminal-attorneywestpalmbeach.com/blog/category/police-lawsuits/" rel="category tag">Police Lawsuits</a>.
