2Police BrutalityObasogie, Osagie K., and Zachary Newman. "Police violence, use of force policies, and public health."American journal of law & medicine43.2-3 (2017): 279-295.In this context, the police officers are encouraged to reduce the amount of force used during the delivery of services so that lives could be saved. In this case, police brutality is viewed as a public health problem. Therefore, policies on the use of force by the police are meantto restrict their actions thus promoting people’s wellbeing. However, findings show that practicesthat could promote public safety in the policies are few.Chaney, Cassandra, and Ray V. Robertson. "Racism and police brutality in America."Journal of African American Studies17.4 (2013): 480-505.This paper discusses the public perception of the police and how the issue of racism has shaped discussions in America. In this case, information was acquired from National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project (NPMSRP). The report showed that deaths in the hands of the police had increased. Therefore, members of the public lost trust in the police and viewed them as hypocrites because they did not abide by the law in which they claimed to enforce.Cao, Liqun. "Document Title: Curbing Police Brutality: What Works? A Reanalysis of Citizen Complaints at the Organizational Level."The programs involved in curbing police brutality are involved. In this case, the complaints from the public on the use of force by the police and those that do not include using force are analyzed. In some cases, members of the community have reported cases on the use of force by the police, but no appropriate action was taken. The inability to take action demonstrated failure of the leadership and maintenance of public safety.

In this paper, the failure of the United States government to meet its obligation of eliminating racial discrimination when it comes to providing police services to the community. Inother words, African Americans are exposed to the use of excessive force, racial profiling, and sexual abuse by the police.
