Denver Police Use of Force

There are many police involved incidents where the character, morals, 

and ethics of the officer(s) involved was put into question. An example of this involves 

the shooting of unarmed minorities by police officer, their actions may have been the 

direct result of their biasness or racism, and this could have been the driving factor for the 

officer(s) use of force, and not so much the apparent threat. What I want from you all is 

to pick an incident involving police use of force and answer some questions:

A background of the case (what was the initial incident that took place and led up to the 

force being applied)

What role did the civilian play, if any, that might have contributed to this confrontation 

(Disobeying commands, mental health, armed with a knife or firearm, unarmed, etc)

What steps did the civilian or officer take to de-escalate the situation AND what led up to 

force being applied on either side.

Do you agree with totality of the circumstances and the resulting end to the 

confrontation?

How would you have handled the situation differently if placed in the same exact 

situation. 

PLEASE BE SURE TO ANSWER ALL THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR PAPER. The 

paper itself may not exceed three pages, APA style format in your writing. Use 12-inch 

font, double spaced, in Times New Roman. Include a refence page which is to also be in 

APA format. The reference page does not count towards the overall length of the 

assignment. If you reference material from a source, you must cite that source 

accurately. An example of what is expected will be provided, everyone will do well 

believe me.. PLEASE DO NOT REFERENCE FROM WIKIPEDIA OR OTHER 

LESSER-KNOWN WEBSITE SOURCES. I do have the technology to determine if you 

plagiarized or borrowed information from Wikipedia or other illegitimate sources. Please 

adhere to the university plagiarism policy.
