The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a legal rule that gave victims of police brutality in one part of the country a better chance of holding officers accountable in court over civil rights violations.
Known as the “provocation rule,” it was confined to the nine states covered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which last year upheld a $4 million verdict against a pair of Los Angeles officers who broke into the shack of a homeless couple without a warrant and nearly killed them.
If officers of the law are not beholden to the law, law and order is dead and gone. If police officers do not face consequences for their violent crime then there is no reason to value, respect, or even acknowledge them because they have become just another violent gang terrorizing the good citizens of this country. A cop without consequences is an affront to the American way of life.
PErhaps this is the goal? Making American facist?
