A lot of people have died because of police officers and the reasons are clear, it is due to criminal activities they have undertaken and then refuse arrest which later causes a spark to ignite between the authorities and the civilians. Other times it is proved that police men just take advantage of their rights and brutally use force against citizens. Are police officers considered fair or brutal towards people?

Many people went into disaster mode, breaking into buildings and hurting people. For people who were stranded (poor people) they had to walk across the bridge. However, police officers made them turn back. Since FEMA has become part of the Department of Homeland Security, it has been a struggle.
