Police Killing Qualified Immunity Reforms Across the Country

Source: Tenth Amendment Center
by Mike Maharrey

“With a police reform movement growing across the U.S., there has been an increase in efforts to eliminate the qualified immunity defense for police officers through state reforms. But various police lobbies aggressively opposed these efforts and defeated dozens of qualified immunity reforms. This continues a pattern of law enforcement opposition killing reforms ranging from ending civil asset forfeiture to limiting enforcement of federal gun control.” (11/10/21)
