If the officer violated your civil rights, you can sue, but you still hve to be able to show damages (usualy physical). There will be a full inquiry and your attorney should make sure to get all internal review documents. Your spouse and child might also have a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress, but you really need an attorney in your area to sort it out.
