Police Assault, An Unfair Action That’s Landing Many In Jail


Police Assault

In recent times several factors have led to ‘police assault’ which has seen its increase in every passing year. However, it became known that the subject act has been traced to the volatility of our immediate society that has evolved due to an unfair systematic process that has gained a lot of momentum, yet this act has been carried out by offenders who are often and if not in all cases considered physically and mentally superior to these victims.

Currently, there are concerns about the rate at which our subject focus has suddenly become a global concern, despite efforts to have this addressed, yet conditions of its occurrence have ensured offenders did not restrain from doubling down in this trajectory. However, could there have been a way to curb this scourge, such that, the vulnerable to issues of abuse and bullying could as well prevent an unexpected outcome from gathering momentum?

When we lose our composure because we feel bullied, it could lead to several issues, and when it comes to law enforcement personnel – a high degree of tolerance will go a long way in helping issues even when one is pissed.

Meanwhile, in a situation of public unrest and if there evolve protests geared towards addressing the growing concern, one could in the process be embarrassed, humiliated, and restrained due to societal status. But a step towards police assault would in no doubt be viewed as another matter, hence, an entirely different atmosphere.

Now, let’s put things down nicely – an assault against personnel is an issue of another matter precisely an attack against a police officer. Therefore, to ensure we avoid the ugly situation of being thrown into jail due to assault aimed at personnel, several potential outcomes should be weighed. 

Sadly enough, police in developed countries have been exempted from this incident, and this has been traced to unfair practices viewed as a process that has gained a lot of momentum and also as a result of maltreatment that often emanates from police officers. Hence, a good number of persons have ensured they remain resilient with their views while doubling down in this course. However, as part of our culture, we will wrap this context with a case.


Vic in this context got himself in a mess regarding the subject concern while in transit having violated the traffic law regulation, and was ordered by the police to pull over, instead, he exploded towards the police officer in an un-kept attitude due to his unaddressed attitudinal temperamental issues, yet a learned man.

Based on his level of exposure he assumed the police officers infringed on his rights but couldn’t restrain himself from sending back the park to them, in the process he lost his composure and things got terrible. However, the outcome of the whole drama led to a serious fracas, and a police officer was insulted in the process, this eventually led to a fight which resulted in his arrest.

Eventually, Vic was charged and sentenced to six months imprisonment by the law court, based on police assault.
