The despicable garbage city of New York has decided to eliminate qualified immunity for its police officers, which would mean police officers can arrested and fired if they make a mistake – no matter how small – while performing their duties. This will be the end of policing in New York, and you will see a mass exodus from the department.
The New York City Council moved to end qualified immunity for police officers Thursday, making it the first big city in the nation to do so.
The legal doctrine has for decades protected officers from lawsuits alleging misconduct against those they’re arresting, unless the officer had violated a clearly established constitutional right.
Qualified immunity first came under scrutiny during the racial injustice and police brutality protests that roiled the nation in the light of George Floyd’s death.
Of course, this revolves around Saint George Floyd. He was truly a gentleman and a scholar.
The city council said in a statement the bill would protect New Yorkers against unreasonable search and seizures and against excessive force, in addition to banning qualified immunity. The Big Apple joins two states, Colorado and Connecticut, in curbing the immunity defense.
While I feel for those who live in NYC, I sincerely hope enough people wake up to what’s going on there. de Blasio despises the police and its citizens, and I would like nothing better than to watch NYC’s doom.
