Misuse of Force: How Allied Universal Security Played a Role in Multiple Deaths, Including a Bay Area Legend.
From protests around the world to organized movements. From legislation to judicial consequences. In whatever avenue, in whatever way, the issue of misuse of force, predominantly by police officers, has been a prevalent topic of discussion and action for many years. With the advent of social media, and the everyday person's ability to record the world around them, the public has had no other option than to become aware of a far-too-often repeated problem. Misuse of force leads to sudden in-custody deaths. Yet in the conversations, the movements, the protests, and until VERY recently the legislation, there seems to be one group left out of the conversation that absolutely should have been included.
