Unqualified Impunity

That’s what you get when you protect police officers with qualified immunity.

In the last few days, we have seen protests spring up in 45 cities across the country over the needless death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Floyd’s death is yet another in a long, long history of police brutality. While I don’t agree with the violence and the property damage arising from the protests, I believe that peaceful protests are a reasonable response to law enforcement abuses when they are not held to account.
