The police are the law enforcement of society. Their job is to keep the situation under control, catch the criminal and control violence, but not punish things. They are not the authorities that decide which person deserves to be killed or punished. The police force is responsible according to the law and the constitution, and they cannot take the law into their own hands. Still, there are known cases around the world where the police have gone beyond their traditional role. Some forces have crossed the line occasionally, but others have crossed the line, taking many steps.
The police force was first established by a Muslim Caliph named Omar al-Khattab (R.A). It was then known as “ash-shurta” and was headed by a Section Head, like the present-day Supreme Inspector. Its role was to keep the peace, but over time, the increasing population and changing human spirit and dynamics distracted the police from their basic role. Now the police are used as a brutal force to control brutality. Although quite ironic, the police are also very important.
Below are ten countries with the worst police brutality in the world. Sorry to spoil your surprise, but Pakistan is at the top of the list. Continue reading…
worst police brutality
Shocking as it may seem, the USA is listed here as the country with the most brutal police force, especially after 9/11. Following the start of this war on terrorism, it granted the country's police immunity (in a few cases unconstitutional) from people's legal and civil rights. Recently, many murders have been committed because the police are "suspected" of criminal activity. Innocent people are killed or executed after biased trials, as the police show civil rights immunity in the fight against terrorism. Most of the murders involve black men. Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and Gregory Gunn are notable names when it comes to police murders. However, the country has the best police force in the world! Surprised?
Iranian police brutality
A glance at the Ashura protests of 2009 will give you an idea of the level of police brutality in Iran. Police and authorities report 36 deaths, but protesters claim the figure is much higher. Ashura commemorates a day of injustice in Islamic history. It is a day when Shiite Muslims are obliged to end violence and injustice, but the police take brutal measures against people in the Ashura processions. They were rounded up, shot and fired upon. The same thing happened with the protests against the elections in Iran. Because of this, there was general outrage in the country when he hosted a conference against the racial killings of black men in the United States. People took this as ironic.
Brazilian Police Force Brutality
Brazil has been in the news a few years ago because of the Olympics held in Rio de Janeiro. It was also addressed for the worst examples of police brutality in the country. It's very common for police to kill people while trying to control gangs and illegal land occupations. They have a free ticket from the government to control the situation as they wish. It's also not uncommon for police to plant evidence to frame someone they think is not good for society. In this process, there were also racist and black man murders. Almost all reported deaths are considered self-defence. The problem is that the police are trying to control the brutality with brutality so that the gang warfare does not abate.
Police violence is also common in Haiti. It can be evaluated from the way the government took to turn the island of Ile a Vache into a tourist attraction. Instead of following proper purchase, eviction and development procedures, bulldozers demolished homes and police brutally intervened in anyone who crossed a line in the name of protests. People were beaten indiscriminately, as even priests and women were not spared.
The chief of police for the area was replaced by a more strict chief of police to deal with people protesting the government. It is quite sad to see that money is taken by taxpayers to feed the police and then the same cost centre is used to oppress people illegally. While this may seem like one side of the story to our readers, there is ample evidence gathered by human rights activists about these protests in Haiti.
Kenyan police brutality
Kenya is an African country with widespread problems and rampant corruption. People took to the streets in 2016 against the government and its corruption. However, they faced fierce resistance and penalties by lawmakers. The protesting crowds were hit with sticks and sticks. They were chased through the streets and the police resorted to all gruesome measures to disperse the assembled crowd. Journalists told anecdotes about the police treating people like they were cotton bales. No wonder people want a change.

Russian police brutality
Police custody and police brutality are so common in Russia that they are almost never reported. People tend to take all kinds of measures by the police to restore their authority and power. One of the most famous cases concerns the moderately successful band of 1970s drummer Sergei Pestov, who was arrested from his own garage for alleged drug possession. His wife had to identify his lifeless body the next day. And although the police claim they released him the night before, human rights activists think otherwise.
somali police force
Like the country itself, the Somali police force is in a dire state, torn by civil war. More than 1,000 trained German police officers reportedly disappeared in 2009 and allegedly joined an Islamist paramilitary group. Power receives low wages and resorts to illegal measures to increase their income. Encroachment on private property and forcing citizens to bribe are common in the country. There are also reports of police turning away from crime and supporting injustice in exchange for financial bribery. Attempts have been made to improve the state, but so far without much success.
Egyptian Police Brutality
In 2004, it was claimed by a CIA officer that if a man was wanted to be seen disappearing from this planet, he should be sent to Egypt. The situation got worse after the Arab Spring, because the current regime thinks that Mubarak's dismissal was due to Mubarak's tolerance and therefore they are planning the opposite. According to the Nadeem Center, 40,000 arrests, 1265 missing and 267 murders were reported in 2015, along with 600 local tortures. Much of this was done in support of the military coup in Sissi's favour.
2. South Africa – World capital of police brutality
World Capital of Police Violence
The numbers show that the number of people killed by police in South Africa is increasing every year. If all civil liability cases against the police were upheld, the government's budget would only be exhausted in court. According to reports, the figures for torture by the police and rapes by uniformed policemen exceed each year. There were 244 deaths and 124 rapes by uniformed police in 2016 alone. It's sad to see guardians turn into vultures. In the same year, 145 cases of police torture were also reported.
CTD match in Sahiwal
Pakistani police are known for corruption and abuse of etiquette. It also has a reputation for extrajudicial executions. According to Pakistani Human Rights Commission (HRCP) data, 3,345 people were killed in clashes faced by the police from 2014 to May 2018. According to the data, 6,610 men and 23 women and 12 minor victims were encountered by the police during this process. period. Of these, 3,345 people died.
Numerous cases of extrajudicial killings and brutality of police have been reported in Pakistan. Some examples; The Model Town incident (14+ protesters killed by police fire), the murder of model Naqeebullah Mehsud, and much more. But the incident that occurred on January 19, 2018 is the worst case of police brutality ever. Punjab police officers, among them; Mohammed Khalil is in the presence of his wife Nabeela, their 13-year-old daughter Areeba and their neighbor Zeeshan and their three children.
