Minerva @ Midnight: End LEO qualified immunity, let insurers find different profit centers

3 min read

Ending qualified immunity for police officers would certainly fill the gap in insurance company revenues created by universal healthcare in the US. There’s plenty of other liabilities that insurance companies can cover including civilian firearms liability insurance on the model of auto insurance. Forcing individual officers to bear more individual liability for fatalities would alter police culture.

End LEO qualified immunity, give the insurance companies something different with which to wager risk/return after the onset of universal health care. We’re now damn tired of “accidental” shootings that ultimately wind-up being payouts of taxpayer money for wrongful death lawsuits against police departments.

about these “officer-involved shootings” is that people defending the officers condemn the victim for not being calm, cool, collected and behaving with perfect decorum while defending the TRAINED law enforcement officer for being scared, anxious, stressed, etc
