    Colorado Ends Qualified Immunity for Police



    The bill requires a political subdivision of the state to indemnify its employees for such a claim; except that if the peace officer’s employer determines the officer did not act upon a good faith and reasonable belief that the action was lawful, then the peace officer is personally liable for 5 percent of the judgment or $25,000, whichever is less, unless the judgment is uncollectible from the officer, then the officer’s employer satisfies the whole judgment.

    I wonder how many days it'll be before every cop in the state resigns.

    Qualified immunity is pretty much a requirement to carry out policing in any capacity. It's one of the only reasons they can get away with things we can't in a citizen arrest.

    I was considering moving there. Looks like I’ll be finding a different line of work if I do.

    I did not realize that qualified immunity was for civil rights cases.

    I'm thinking this isn't the end of the world it is being made out to be.

    I think qualified immunity should be nerfed a bit, but reading the article, this looks to go too far.

    Seems like those who were dissuaded from filing frivolous lawsuits for hurt feelings will now have free reign. I sure wouldn't want to be a cop in Colorado.

    Then again, I wouldn't want to be a cop anywhere right now.

    Probably Atlanta is the worst place in the US to be a cop right now.

    I'm sure there are plenty of Ken Nunn-types out there who already have new commercials and bus ads.
