The violation of the principle of human dignity through police abuse and the sensationalist approach made by the media is a reality that plagues the State of Paraíba. In view of this, it is necessary to analyze how this problem occurs and how it represents an impasse for the realization of Human Rights. Thus, the present study, through an analytical and hermeneutic methodology, makes a bibliographic review, based on the analysis of Brazilian legislation on the subject and an exploratory and descriptive research, by examining newspaper articles that report cases of police abuse. in the studied State and, also, when verifying what the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of Paraíba says about these specific cases. In the meantime, it is clear that the minimum guarantees listed in the Federal Constitution of 1988 and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, even after a few decades, still need to be truly implemented in the context of the State of Paraíba, since detainees lose only their political rights, but they are holders of all the others listed throughout the constitutional text, including the right to dignity, however, in practice it is noticeable that this does not occur. Therefore, it is concluded that these constant violations by the media and the public security agents themselves are the result of a problem deeply rooted in the Brazilian reality and that affects, mostly, those who are on the margins of the State, suffering from its neglect of the situation.
