    Just like the defund movement has started biting individual cities in the ass recently, I'm guessing this qualified immunity stunt will be re-thought soon in every jurisdiction it's implemented.
    Colorado does not end Qualified Immunity/Become a human rights mecca until July 1st, 2023. New Mexico is your.lab to prove it works and needs to go Nationwide STAT. Rob

    Yes, even bad legislation has an effective date. What do you think the odds are it will be repealed before taking effect?

    Not good at all. Colorado - though it's not Minnesota - has been in the news for high level police brutality which can not far off economically destroy the life of - of the type of officer that makes qualified immunity necessary to abolish to begin with. Rob

    It seems if you watched less media coverage of covid you would put it in perspective like most people do.
