Welcome to Stoll, Glickman & Bellina’s civil rights blog. When the police make an arrest for a crime, NYPD and the district attorney’s office often convict the person in the media before the accused has even appeared before a judge, much less presented his case to a jury. The stories often appear in the “police blotter”.
Yet, we rarely hear about the victims of police lies and brutality even though dozens of people every day spend a day, a week, and much longer behind bars based on fabricated statements and planted evidence. This blog will tell the other side of the story, the side of the victims of police misconduct. It’s our police brutality blotter.
Unfortunately, our firm has a rich source of stories to tell about police brutality. All the stories will be real, only the identities of the victims will be hidden. We invite your feedback, just keep it civil.
