"Qualified Immunity" has spiraled out of control and has given malicious government employees (especially those in law enforcement) nearly the same type of immunity that is bestowed upon foreign diplomats.
To the justices who served on the 1982 Supreme Court:
BURN IN HELL!!!

An excerpt from Mr. Amash's press release regarding his legislation:
The brutal killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police is merely the latest in a long line of incidents of egregious police misconduct. This pattern continues because police are legally, politically, and culturally insulated from consequences for violating the rights of the people whom they have sworn to serve. That must change so that these incidents of brutality stop happening.
Until then, we must ensure that those whose rights are violated by police aren’t forced to suffer the added injustice of being denied their day in court.
I hope Mr. Amash's legislation is debated in both chambers, voted into law, and signed by the President.
