The police have great responsibility to act on behalf of the law, so it is a serious issue when they use their power to violate our rights and freedoms. Let’s talk about police misconduct with Clark Neily, Senior Vice President for Legal Studies at the Cato Institute, and what the limits of police authority should be. This is designed for high school students and may be used independently or in conjunction with our criminal proceedings units.

Discussion question suggestions:

  • What is an example of police misconduct?
  • What should be the limits of police authority?
