Police Immunity Rollback Bill Officially Dead
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

A bill that would’ve rolled back some of the qualified immunity provisions for police that had been proposed by Republican Indiana US Senator, Mike Braun has officially died.

Senator Braun had proposed a bill that would have removed certain protections against lawsuits alleging that they violated a plaintiff’s rights. Braun says the judicial branch has created and defined the practice without any direction from Congress, and adds that Congress should have done so while also protecting the rights of the people.

Varioius reports indicated that his bill drew criticism from a number of area police agencies, who said the bill would have made it harder for police officers to do their jobs.
