Think it can't happen? Watch the movie "An Innocent Man", sure the movie is fiction, but I'll bet something like that has happened before.

I don't think you'll need serious physical injuries, emotional damage can be just as tramatic.


All I am saying is you don’t get much in the line of emotional suffering. Take it from a person who is in the mist of a lawsuit involving traumatic and permanent injuries. Judges will not award much if anything to a person claiming emotional injuries.

A lawsuit may teach the cop a lesson but that’s all it will do.
