What Is Police Misconduct?

Many people are confused by what constitutes as “police misconduct.” Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be physically harmed in order to be the victim of police misconduct.

Video Uploads

We understand most people record video instead of photos and are working to create a secure method for victims of police misconduct to attach videos to their incident reports.

Social Media

We are working to expand our database to the popular social media networks to further expose police misconduct and make such conduct more easily shareable.

Automated Notifications

We are working to create an automated platform where all published incident reports will be submitted to the proper local authorities on a weekly basis until a response is received.

I Was Killed By A Police Officer

Miguel Espinal, 36, was shot and killed by NYPD officers in an incident that started with a traffic stop in the Bronx. Espinal fled the stop, prompting a police chase that ended in a wrong-way crash.

After the crash, Espinal left the vehicle and ran to the surrounding Tibbetts Brook Park, where police killed him.

Espinal's family said he ran from officers because he doesn't have a license. “Whether he ran from the cops or not, it doesn’t justify that he got shot. It doesn’t justify that,” Justin Juble, Espinal’s brother, said.

Junior Prosper crashed the car he was driving, a cab, on the highway and allegedly began to run away. An officer chased Junior, claiming Junior bit his finger before the officer shot and killed him. Prosper's mother, Marie, said the police were not telling the truth about her. "He's very nice, he's a person who respects all types of people. He's not aggressive. Whoever said that is lying."

He leaves behind three children, and his wife is expecting a fourth.
