The Supreme Court recently passed on hearing several cases that could have ended or at least restricted qualified immunity. This is the legal doctrine that effectively shields police officers from being legally held accountable for misconduct such as using excessive force or violating rights. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that the Supreme Court decided not to take an opportunity to scale back qualified immunity. It created the concept in the first place. And thanks to the incorporation doctrine, it applies to every cop in the entire United States.
