What to Do During Police Brutality or Right Abuse.

When you observe police abuse or misconduct, here are some measures you should take towards fighting against injustice.

Distance yourself from them and if possible maintain a minimum of (six) 6 feet of distance from the situation so you can safely observe, use your phone to record what is going on. Make sure you don’t interfere or obstruct the officer’s movement as well as with what they are doing.

Observation or recording of public events is part of your right. One can record critical footage from afar, places like from a rooftop, window, or balcony.
Pay attention to relevant information.

Your recordings may be helpful if you capture background scenery, to clearly state where the incident occurred. In any case where you are unable or uncomfortable to record the victim’s details mention it, let your voice be heard mentioning the name of the victim, the police plate number, badge number, etc.

Think before posting the footage online.

After capturing records of police brutality, the next thing that comes to mind is to post them on social media or other digital platforms, but before you do that, these considerations must be put in place.

Implications of Sharing.

What will be the implications of sharing it online with your personal account or profile? Can you stand your name being associated with the footage? Note sharing those images with your account might make you vulnerable to attack or aggression from the public or police.

Therefore, you might want to share the video with an advocacy group that will determine the best approach or chooses to post the video anonymously.

Thank for your post,I think I have learnt a lot from this wonderful and educated post.

You are spoken on a very important points and I believe a lot of people have also learn from this.

Yes we need to distance ourselves from such placev or whenever we see I'm a policeman abuse people in a wrong way.

Recording of video is a good evidence which help you a lot in a such case, because if you say a lot of things at the police station the officer may not believe you, but when you have a record you will win the case.

And as you said if we want to do such as things we should think before posting the video on the social media and maybe we can stand name such footage.

Because some do implicate themselves if they don't look well before posting.

Thank you, Is good and I know alot of people will work on it.

In fact police is one of the uniform work that I hated so much the right people you lots and they do a lot of things to people however there are still some good people around them but their are too much

Most of the time the right people a lot especially when they are on the road or police stop some of the thing that is not necessary they bring a lot of opposition to the person.

One of the thing that make me to hated policemen so much is a story of a brother that was shared to me the brother was in prison only case that you know nothing about and a policeman always come to him to tell him that he can help him out in several ways that what he did is to give you money at the end of the day the police was only looking for this morning and nothing like my help to him

Some of the time if you are policemen as a friend and they are in the bathroom instead of going to come closer to you they will push another person to you that is to tell you how I build a ark I even claim that why are they stopping you they will say you are teaching them their work

Most of the time you will be right but they will not allow you to speak because they're in uniform they behave somehow I believe my advice is this that we should all learn more about the law and lower right there still an hour out so that any place you are taking it to be able to stand

But the problem we have in this country is that you don't have the right to say especially in Nigeria where the leaders are so corrupt and they are ready to do anything to take the life of an innocent

Portuguese :

Curto um monte de permanência está acontecendo na mente, de fato, a minha é uma das coisas importantes que nunca podem ser recuperadas como garantidas. A mente corrompida é a mente que tem muito Mal quando você não tem uma mente boa. será difícil para alguém ter sucesso na vida Todas as coisas que eu gostaria de dizer sobre meus joelhos que podem ter uma conexão maior, especialmente você está servindo a Deus, você precisa conectar sua mente esperando a minha é uma das coisas que nunca pode ser considerada garantida, a mente é muito importante mesmo no aspecto da concentração Quando você está na escola e perde a concentração, é a mente, a mente é uma coisa muito importante para trabalhar, você deve achar difícil andar em sua mente, então é um grande problema para muitas pessoas acharem difícil perdoar um outro apenas por causa do problema que eles têm com a mente, a mente nunca pode ser tomada como certas pessoas acham que as pessoas com a mente é algo ótimo, você deve levar em consideração o bem com a sua mente, porque como você pensa a sua mente, você faz isso algumas vezes como as coisas podem ser muito difíceis de alcançar, mas quando você pensa ganharia a mente, você verá como funciona muito fácil para você Na maioria das vezes as pessoas vão dizer como vai ser fácil, assim como este escritor disse no post, mas se você tiver uma boa mente em relação a algo, será mais fácil para você conseguir É por isso que na maioria das vezes eu tento pensar uma coisa boa com a minha mente, estou muito bem com a minha mente para que eu possa alcançar mesmo que seja algo que seja basicamente difícil para mim fazer, eu acho que na minha mente que vai ser fácil e antes que você saiba eu o considero muito fácil de conseguir

Spanish :
Brevemente, hay mucha permanencia en la mente, de hecho, la mía es una de las cosas importantes que nunca se puede dar por sentado. La mente corrupta es la mente que tiene mucho mal cuando no tienes una buena mente. Será difícil para cualquiera tener éxito en la vidaTodas las cosas que me gustaría decir sobre mis rodillas que pueden tener una mayor conexión, especialmente cuando estás sirviendo a Dios, necesitas conectar tu mente Esperar la mía es una de las cosas que nunca se puede dar por sentado, la mente es muy importante incluso en el aspecto de la concentración Cuando estás en la escuela y pierdes la concentración, es la mente, la mente es algo muy importante con lo que trabajar, es posible que te resulte difícil caminar en tu mente, por lo que es un gran problema para muchas personas les resulta difícil perdonarse unos a otros solo por el problema que tienen con la mente, la mente nunca se puede dar por sentada. Haz eso a veces las cosas pueden ser muy difíciles y difíciles de lograr, pero cuando creas que ganarás la mente, verás cómo funciona mucho. fácil para ti La mayoría de las veces la gente dirá lo fácil que será, tal como dijo este escritor en la publicación, pero si tienes una buena mente sobre algo, será más fácil para ti lograrlo. trato de pensar algo bueno con mi mente, estoy bien con mi mente, así que puedo lograr incluso si es algo que es básicamente difícil de hacer para mí, creo que en mi mente será fácil y antes de que te des cuenta lo encuentro es muy fácil de conseguir
