The potential legal issues that can arise when governmental forces take custody of an individual based on the due process rights provided under the U.S. Constitution, citing major court cases that have influenced the freedoms and quality of life afforded to incarcerated individuals.
What types of liability does the government incur when they take custody of an individual? For example, is the government responsible for their medical care (and to what level is the government responsible)?
