What Does Civil Rights Violation in Washington Mean?
You are lucky to live, and maybe be born, in the United States of America. This country is the leader of the first world and has made it through a civil war and other turmoils to reach the point where all citizens are guaranteed civil rights.
Nevertheless, people in this country continue to face constant threats to these secret rights. It includes, but is not limited to:
Discrimination. You have equal rights regardless of your skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or whatever else that makes you different from other people. You must be treated equally no matter what.
Employment Discrimination. Discrimination issues very often arise through employment decisions. Some employers don't accept individuals that are different from them, but the laws prohibit employers from making decisions that negatively affect your right to employment based on those real or perceived differences.
Police Misconduct. Police officers represent the government and the government must treat all citizens with respect and provide assistance to said citizen without consideration to that person's background. Police officers typically violate civil rights through some form of misconduct such as use of excessive force, racial profiling, unlawful search and seizures, unlawful detention/arrest, and others. You should know that police officers have to perform their duties in accordance to the United States Constitution and Washington Constitution, both of which protect your civil rights.
Police Use of Excessive Force. This is the most frequent means for police officers violating civil rights. While police officers are sometimes required to use force, they are required to respect your rights as a human being and they cannot be allowed to indiscriminately injure or kill in order to gain compliance. While excessive force is sometimes difficult to prove, you must pursue justice and hold police officers accountable.
