Watch Podcast As Mike Talks With A Former Jamaican Cop & US Military Vet About Police Killings…

n a recent inves­ti­ga­tion con­duct­ed by [Reuters], they exam­ined 500 cas­es to see if the Supreme Court proves Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s asser­tion that the court acts as “an absolute shield” against police account­abil­i­ty. 
The study found that “qual­i­fied immu­ni­ty” has act­ed as a bar­ri­er that pre­vents police from even being tried for exces­sive force. Qualified Immunity is a doc­trine that was intro­duced in 1967 by the Supreme Court to pro­tect gov­ern­ment offi­cials from unnec­es­sary lit­i­ga­tion.

The killing of black peo­ple in America today and the tens of thou­sands who have died since the police was giv­en carte blanch rests square­ly on the United States Supreme Court that has allowed police to kill minori­ties with­out cause for care.

Michael J Klarman a Professor at law at Harvard University wrote in ref­er­ence to the US Supreme Court’s deci­sions.
