This week the United States Supreme Court issued a ruling that appears to confirm suspicions that the court supports qualified immunity for police officers. Qualified immunity has been a hot button issue as it has been abused before by police precincts to avoid prosecution for their crimes against people.

CNBC reports that in an unsigned ruling the court ruled that cops are guaranteed qualified immunity unless they’ve blatantly broken the law or are (“incompetent.”)

Qualified immunity has been a hot button issue because generally speaking even when a cop has broken the law they often go unpunished in the United States.
