Why You Have The Right To… Resist Police Brutality

Did you know that you have the right to defend yourself against a police officer who is using excessive force?

A court in New Jersey recently referenced a State Supreme Court case from 1970, which stated that if an officer “employs excessive and unnecessary force, the citizen may respond or counter with the use of reasonable force to protect himself, and if in doing so the officer is injured no criminal offense has been committed.”


The charge of “resisting arrest” is used and abused by cops on a regular basis, but it’s important to remember that the minute you give up your right to self defense, you’re putting your trust a corrupt system does not have your best interest in mind.
