https://sports.yahoo.com/over-1400-...-letter-to-end-police-immunity-150408851.html I'll preface this by saying that while I do not trust politicians, I bear no ill will toward police officers. However, no one should be above the law. Qualified immunity is just like any other advantage-based program; (supposedly) well intentioned but biased by nature and easily abusable by those given the advantage. Just as affirmative action holds back white men in favor of women and minorities and feminism holds back men in favor of women, qualified immunity provides unreasonably strong protection for law enforcement and government officials from prosecution and lawsuits. While I think cops should have a bit of leeway when doing their jobs, there should be limits to that kind of power; especially when it comes to things like public safety and the constitutional rights of citizens. In this thread, I'd like to start a constructive discussion on whether or not Qualified Immunity is still necessary. Should it be repealed? If so, what (if any) protections should we afford those who work in government or law enforcement? Your thoughts?
