Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine in United States federal law that shields government officials from being sued for discretionary actions performed within their official capacity, unless their actions violated “clearly established” federal law or constitutional rights. It is intended to protect officials who “make reasonable but mistaken judgments about open legal questions”, extending to “all [officials] but the plainly incompetent or those who knowingly violate the law”. Qualified immunity applies only to government officials, and does not protect the government itself from suits arising from officials’ actions. No one in their right mind would take a government job it qualified immunity were repealed. Every perceived error would end in a lawsuit.

  • About time. I’ve recently became aware of LE agencies who despite previous nationally known lawsuits that are again in the same position. LA I understand has 600 constitution rights violation cases stack up upon them awaiting trial despite the Rodney King trial some years back. In essence, they have not learned a lesson.
  • I agree with his position but not his solution. These state problems and states need to fix them. We don’t need more one size fits all federal laws. Well then let’s remove it from Governors and Mayors as well for when their policies lead to tragedies that could have easily been prevented by following the actual written law!

A Christian Brother of mine said some years ago that if he were to be elected as Sheriff he would mandate his sworn officers to join various civic organizations or clubs so that they would “mingle” with ordinary law observing citizens and not just with “perps” and other brothers in blue. I told him I’d get squarely behind him in that endeavor, both physically and financially. (He was a retired State Trooper)

I agree with him on this one. We can’t write anyone a blank check to violate rights. Search online for Tony Timpa and watch as police officers stood there and mocked him as he was dying. This has to stop.

police do have their problems, the most visible being its obedience to the political masters, not to the people or the Constitution … Repealing welfare which encourages irresponsible and destructive behavior. LBJ created the trade offs that promoted the distruction of the family and made people dependant on the welfare system.
