Video Captures Struggle Of Citizens To Receive A Complaint Form To Report Police Abuse

 This is a striking collection of scenes from citizens going to various police stations to try to obtain a complaint form to report police misconduct. They are met with little cooperation and often outright hostility.


The concern is that few citizens are likely to persist in such efforts once they encounter such obstruction or anger from police. The question is why such forms are not readily available and why officers are not trained to assist citizens seeking to file complaints. While I do not believe that this is the universal, or even the common response, of officers, the video should prompt questions about the policies of local police departments
