Records should be kept on all officers of all complaints AND compliments on a national level. This would help weed out bad cops who try to leave one department/city and transfer or apply somewhere else.

Yes, provide more training and education for police officers but only for officers that have a clean record of no complaints. Also, do increase the personal liability for misconduct and allow other police officers to call out colleagues for misbehavior online toward suspects; I support free speech 100% in this case scenario.

Yes, if everyone else has the same opportunity. They should be treated the same as other citizens.

@97YM3CRConstitution from Iowa answered…6 days

No, ignorance is not a justification for committing a crime. Immunity violates the rule of law

@97YG6FZIndependent from New York answered…6 days

Yes, only to officers that have a clean record of no complaints, but they should also provide more training and education to officers as well.

I don’t think so, but this is what I would want to see in police forces: -honesty -right intentions -service and equality -sacrifice

@97XJFMXIndependent from Florida answered…1wk

No, if your job is enforcing the law (which it is thanks to the Supreme Court for police), then you have a fiduciary responsibility to know what the law is.

@63SPL4QSocialistfrom Kentucky  answered…1wk

The police joined the force under the impression that they must serve the public by setting a precedent, being a role model, and essentially striving to be a perfect citizen. There shouldn't be immunity, I don't think. It should be situational, case by case.

@97X9P6H from Maryland answered…1wk

Yes, but only for officers wearing and leaving on their body cams during all interactions with the public

@97X5VM6Progressive from California answered…1wk

I'm okay with qualified immunity, assuming we cut down the number of police, and require a much more higher standard of police that we higher. Including requirements fir education on safety for themselves and others, and education on the neighborhoods they serve, the people in them, and the history of their neighborhoods. Aswell as live in the neighborhoods they protect.

@97WW86GIndependent from Minnesota answered…1wk

Yes, but they should be afforded adequate liability insurance (taken from their pension fund or a hybrid fund) that allows them to perform their duties and make the occasional mistake

@gklewis83 from Kansas answered…1wk

No, police officers have a difficult time making the right decision sometimes, but people who commit involuntary manslaughter often face consequences far worse than police officers who commit misconduct.

@97WFG8D from Maryland answered…1wk

Yes, but only for officers that have a clean record & no complaints. Also, provide more training & education for officers & increase the personal liability for misconduct.

@97VRQ32 from Pennsylvania answered…2wks

No, government officials should be held to a higher standard than the general population

@97SZ2QN from Georgia answered…2wks

The police joined the force under the impression that they must serve the public by setting a precedent, being a role model, striving for a perfect citizen. If they fail, they failed entirely.

@97RGTYS from North Carolina answered…2wks

No, and increase personal liability for misconduct with more training and education for officers.

@97RD9RV from North Carolina answered…2wks

@97QDRZK from Arkansas answered…2wks

No, police departments and police officers should both have liability and liability insurance

@97Q4K7FWomen’s Equality from Minnesota answered…2wks

It depends on the situation, but they shouldn't have ultimate immunity.

@97PX344 from Washington answered…2wks

Both provide more training and education and for clean record officers with no complaints.

@97P25YNRepublican from South Dakota answered…3wks

If there is a proper cause, I think it's okay, but without a proper cause, I don't believe so.

@97NW9VC from Oregon answered…3wks

People should be treated equally for misconduct it should not depend on their job or status.

@97NMV98 from Utah answered…3wks

@97NG2TW from Michigan answered…3wks

Nobody is above the law, so they shouldn't be above the people, but they should still have authority and better training and education.

@97NCTKJ from Virginia answered…3wks

No, but if that officer previsouly had a clean record of no complanints, then yes. Training and education should be provided more frequently anyways.

@97MYWFL from Missouri answered…3wks

@7F2D886American Solidarity from Florida answered…3wks

Do not apply qualified immunity in cases where it should have been obvious that what the police officer did was wrong.
