It would seem that there are now, finally, limits to “Qualified Immunity”.
And it would appear that the INDIVIDUAL officers will be on the hook for their behavior in the botched SWAT raid…..Not the Taxpayers. Less payout for the plaintiffs, but still….
I expect that Cops will have to get liability insurance. Which might well not be a good thing. But then again, they ahve lost that blue suit of immunity that some wear to hide their behavior.
Now make no mistake, I don’t want to see cops sued over every little mistake, nor over everyday things they do in the performance of their duties.
But there does need to be a limit on their immunity.
