Understanding your rights when the police use excessive force

You might be familiar with the term "police brutality" from movies and television shows, but the fact is, that is not an actual charge police officers who act beyond their training can face in South Carolina. While it might be different in other jurisdictions, the law in this state provides for remedies for the use of excessive force, but not for "brutality" per se. You might wonder what the difference is and why it is important, other than the fact that one term was chosen over another.
