My analytical research paper will be on the one of the biggest problems faced in America which is police brutality. Police brutality has been seen and reported more over the past 30 years. One of the worst incidents regarding police brutality was the beating of Rodney King. This took place in 1991 and we are still seeing horrible cases of police brutality today. One article I will be using is “The Black Lives Matter movement, crime and police brutality: Comparative study of New York Post and New York Daily News.” Written by Brian Chama. This can be found at http://lehman.ezproxy.cuny.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=138792432&site=ehost-live This article takes a deep dive into police brutality incidents including the killing of Jason Van Dyke. This article provides evidence and statistics of police brutality to support my claim. Another article I will use to strengthen my research paper is “Impact of Police Violence on Mental Health: A Theoretical Framework.” written by Jordan DeVylder, Lisa Fedina, and Bruce Link. It can be found at http://lehman.ezproxy.cuny.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=146319258&site=ehost-live. This article brings an analysis into the impact police brutality has on public health. In this article we see the negative results police brutality causes to communities in America. The final article I will be citing in my analytical research paper is “A FEW BAD APPLES.” written by Sarah Wise. It can be found at http://lehman.ezproxy.cuny.edu:2048/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=144464700&site=ehost-live This article helps bring attention to the corruption of some police in Great Britain. This article shows how prevalent police brutality has become to the point that it has grown noticeably outside of the United States.

    I really enjoyed the fact you chose to do your analytical essay on a topic which should have more exposure. I also think its great you’ll be touching base on the fact policde brutality goes beyond our borders as a country.

    I like that you are not only using evidence of police brutality in New York city your using the whole united states for example you said you had evidence of police brutality within Great Britain because I have only heard of police brutality within New York .
