Ending Qualified Immunity for Police Officers

View descriptionShare

We continue our conversation on police reform -- one year after the murder of George Floyd -- with a discussion on qualified immunity. It requires anyone suing a police officer for misconduct to prove the officer knowingly violated their constitutional rights … and it sets a very high bar for that proof. Critics of qualified immunity say it effectively shields police officers from accountability. That’s why some states and federal lawmakers are trying to scale it back or get rid of it altogether. But how much effect would doing away with it have? We’re here with Jody David Armour, Roy P. Crocker Professor at the USC Gould School of Law.
