A number of high-profile incidents have thrust the actions of the police into the national spotlight. While a number of officers conduct themselves with integrity, there are those who misuse and abuse their power. When a police officer becomes overzealous in carrying out his or her duties, lines are often crossed and the resulting injuries can be severe and, in some instances, fatal.
