Please respond to the following:
Assault is classified as either simple or aggravated (felonious assault). Simple assault is intentionally causing another person to fear immediate bodily harm or death, or intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict bodily harm on the person. Aggravated or felonious assault is an unlawful attack by one person on another to inflict severe bodily injury. However, there are times when physical force may be used legally, in certain instances, without it constituting an assault. In specified instances, teachers, people operating public conveyances, and law enforcement officers can legally use reasonable physical force.
- Describe one example from real-life news within the past three years to illustrate a time when a law enforcement officer used physical force that was found to be lawful.
- Analyze the facts of the case and discuss what evidence you believe led to this conclusion.
