    I heard an NPR piece on it last week, and that was more than enough for me. When are we going to start holding law enforcement to a higher standard than everyone else? Instead of qualified immunity, we should start saying that an officer found guilty of a crime gets double the punishment of a regular citizen. Yes, that means fewer people will want the job - I’m okay with that.

      They should be forced to carry malpractice insurance just like a doctor.

      Many cops make up to 300k a year with overtime. They can afford it.
