Mass State Senate With No Black People Voted To End Qualified Immunity For Cops While You Were Sleeping And Without Public Input, Banned Schools From Identifying Gang Members

Activists and politicians been been pushing to end “qualified immunity” for police officers ever since George Floyd was killed in May. It’s a hot buzzword because it sounds like qualified immunity protects cops who do bad things, but that’s not what it does at all. Derek Chauvin is in jail and charged with murder despite having qualified immunity. All it really does is protect cops from being sued civilly.

Qualified immunity grants government officials performing discretionary functions immunity from civil suits unless the plaintiff shows that the official violated “clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known

Eliminating qualified immunity won’t solve any problems, and it certainly won’t help black people. Derek Chauvin won’t have any money or assets left when his trial is over. And if he did, why should the family of George Floyd be allowed to seize property from his soon to be ex-wife for a crime she didn’t commit?

The bar for civil lawsuits is much lower than criminal, as it only requires a 51% chance of guilt. Cops like Darren Wilson, who a grand jury determined did nothing wrong, could be sued for a crime they didn’t commit. If you get rid of qualified immunity then cops aren’t going to risk everything they have in order to do their job. If a cop injures someone while they are resisting arrest that cop could be sued civilly and lose everything.

I’ve personally been sued in over a dozen frivolous lawsuits, all of which were eventually thrown out. But it takes years to litigate and costs upwards of hundred of thousands of dollars to get these lawsuits thrown out. If I had qualified immunity they would’ve been thrown out on the spot. Now picture how often cops would be sued by every person who felt like they were wronged by the police.

Qualified immunity protects all public servants. Eliminating it would make it easier for teachers to be sued if a parent felt like their child didn’t get a fair grade on a project. This has happened and the Supreme Court has ruled on this, using qualified immunity to protect the educators.

In 1975, in Wood v. Strickland, the Supreme Court recognized qualified immunity under Section 1983 for a school board member who was sued over the expulsion of three students.

Any legislator who wants to get rid of qualified immunity is voting to:

  • Eliminate collective bargaining rights for public sector unions
  • Make police afraid to do their job, and in turn make our streets less safe
  • Deter people from pursuing jobs in public service
  • Tie up our courts with frivolous lawsuits

Last night while you were sleeping the Massachusetts State Senate voted 30-7 to end qualified immunity as part of their “police reform” agenda. There was no public hearing for citizens and police officers to provide input as there always are with major bills like this. They did it without making headlines because they know that the more that comes out about qualified immunity the more that people will realize how important it is, and they’ll contact their elected leaders to let them know. Here’s how they voted:

The only people worse than the 30 democrats who voted yes are the two republicans (Tarr, Oconnor) and one democrat (DiZoglio) who voted present. At least those who voted no weren’t afraid to put their name on it.

Of the 40 Senators in this state, 36 are democrats and 4 are republicans. Sadly the democratic party is embracing a bill that seeks to destroy public sector unions, undoing over 100 years of progressive reforms brought by organized labor.

The 7 Senators who voted against this should all be commended, especially the 5 democrats (Anne Gobi, Nick Collins, Michael Moore, John Velis, and Michael Rush) who went against their own party and did the right thing. Dean Tran (Fitchburg) and Ryan Fattman (Sutton) both gave impassioned speeches in defense of law enforcement as well.

Tran kicked off the Senate’s debate by delivering a scathing indictment of the process used to develop the bill, which he said was crafted by Democratic leaders without input from the public or key interest groups, including minority law enforcement officers. The Fitchburg Republican, who is Vietnamese, said he has experienced “the kind of hatred and discrimination that one can only imagine or experience in their nightmares.” He called the bill “ill conceived and politically driven” and asked his mostly white colleagues, “What do you know about racial injustice and inequality?”

“The bill’s main goal and objective is to attack and discredit law enforcement,” Tran said.

Thank you Senator Tran for saying what so many of us are thinking. Of the 36 democratic State Senators in Boston, not one of them is black. Sonia Chang-Diaz and Tran are the only two members of the body who can be considered people of color. Yet here are these uppity white folks from wealthy communities, who represent wealthy white people who intentionally moved away from communities of color, ignoring minorities and making their communities less safe. The understanding that people like Jamie Eldridge, Karen Spilka, and Julian Cyr have of racial issues comes from reading the Huffington Post and following Shaun King on Twitter.

Senator Fattman always responds when I contact him with a concern, and he killed it with a speech he gave over the weekend.

The almost entirely white State Senate ignored the concerns of black police officers as well.

“Not only am I a police officer, I am a black man and I am probably better able to speak to concerns of people of color than Senator (William) Brownsberger,” said Eddy Chrispin, president of Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers.

I contacted Senator Brownsberger in May to see if he would condemn or say anything about Lt. Governor Karyn Polito defying her own lockdown order by attending a big party at her brother’s house in Shrewsbury. He told me he was disappointed that she did this, but said that he would respond by doing “most likely, nothing,” because he doesn’t like to get in the “business of calling out the weaknesses and mistakes of others.”

Will Brownsberger doesn’t speak out against public officials who do something wrong, unless of course they’re cops. Then they can be sued for doing their jobs. He believes in holding cops “accountable” to kangaroo civil courts, but not Karyn Polito. Violating your own lockdown orders is just a “weakness” and a “mistake.”

Senator Brownsberger lives in Mitt Romney’s “hometown” of Belmont, and represents a constituency that is overwhelmingly wealthy and white. He’ll remain safe, but he just made the streets a lot more dangerous for black and impoverished people in urban areas where crime rates are higher.

And just for kickers they also added an amendment to the bill that bans schools from collaborating with law enforcement to identify students who are known gang members.

Sen. Patricia Jehlen’s amendment blocking schools from sharing with law enforcement any information about a student’s immigration status, nation of origin, ethnicity, religion and known or suspected gang affiliations passed on a 27-12 vote.

How does preventing schools and police from sharing information about gang members make schools more safe? Oh right, it doesn’t. It makes students and teachers more susceptible from violence. This isn’t shocking coming from Senator Patricia Jehlen though. We wrote about her two years ago when she proposed a bill that would ban students from being arrested for anything while in school. This came after a drug dealing gang banging 15 year old from Woburn was arrested for yelling “fuck science” and throwing his books at his teacher.

The bottom line is that ending qualified immunity will affect all of us, and these idiots are just too short sighted and caught up in the moment to realize that. They’re blinded in their quest for “justice” for George Floyd, and they idiotically think this will help. It won’t. Firefighters will be afraid to run into buildings since they can now be sued if they don’t save the people inside. Police chiefs will order directives for cops not to pull anyone over, since they can be sued for discrimination. Teachers will be afraid to fail any students, and principals will be afraid to hold any students back, since they can be sued by parents for preventing their kids from graduating.

The bill must now get through the 160 member House of Representatives before Governor Baker decides whether to veto or sign it. As much as I hate Baker, I have faith he will veto any bill that gets to his desk. In the meantime, we need to make sure it doesn’t get that far. Here is a list of the 160 State Reps. Take a minute to find out who your elected leader is and send them an email urging them to vote no on any bill that eliminated qualified immunity.

    Look at all the pissed off criminal cops mad that they’re not gonna be allowed to be the pigs we all know they are. The only good cop is a cop who went through years of training to be a cop, not 6 months. As they say, 2 years of training to cut hair, 6 months to be a criminal cop.

    The people deserve far better. The system needs a complete overhaul, tear it down and start fresh.

    First requirement of the new system they put in place would be to not hire ex military. All these bozos have PTSD, and if you have PTSD that should automatically disqualify you from being a cop.

    It’s not that hard to fix the corrupt system we have, just hire better people, prosecute the criminals, and make them personally liable for their crimes, rather than getting bailed out by the tax payer.

    Sadly the criminal cops that frequent this page don’t want better for the system, they want to continue to terrorize the citizens of the United States.

    They know not what they do. Morons just see the word immunity. Like it gives police carte Blanche to do whatever they want. It’s not protection from committing crime. It’s for being sued personally for something that occurs while executing their duty within certain parameters. Making a split second decision, in chaos, knowing you’ll be MMQB’d to death is bad enough. Now try it without this protection having to weigh being sued personally. Good luck recruiting anyone with half a brain now. Fucking assholes don’t have a clue.

    I tried to increase the gas tax so everyone would have to wait a half hour or so to hop on a shitty bus or glitchy Chinese trolley. That didn’t work so I tried to impose a gas fee so my union brothers at the T could have some income from former car drivers, but the fucking governors voted against me dammit. I never say that my state has the fourth highest death rate and fourth highest unemployment rate in the country and have instructed all the news people to just sing about how stuff is just going in the right direction now, and we’re much better than Florida… except for our really high death rate which was almost entirely due to mismanagement of state facilities. That’s ok . I fired all those responsible so that’s over. But I just found out there’s no term limit for governor and I will become a permanent block head here in the state house.

    Other then being the excuse, this has nothing to do with George Floyd. They’ve hijacked and misrepresented the circumstances surrounding the death of a violent drug addict to justify what some lunatics have always wanted to do.

    Floyd was black, Chauvin is white. No evidence of racism in the death.

    Self-proclaimed anti-racists fail to realize that they are promoting much more race based hate than are supposedly fighting.

    C’mon man does it really matter? I guess to pussies like you who make a big deal out of nothing it does get your panties in a bunch but this isn’t going to change a thing.
    When was the last time a Boston cop was in the news for choking out a coon? I’ll tell you when, never because it doesn’t ever happen.
    Compared to the rest of the country Massachusetts has like zero coons and most of the ones we have are seasonal. They come in the warm weather to sign up for welfare, bang a cpl. baby mama’s and buy a pitbull. As soon as summer’s over they dump the baby mama abandon the newborn and the pitbull and head back to warmer climates before winter.
    The small amount of coons that are year rounders don’t dare shooting cops or whites they just shoot each other.

        I’ll even do you a favor because I know how retarded and sensitive you’re.

        I.E…..Person X, (who is white and a cuck like you) had a heart attack. Then, a cop shows up and performs CPR. In the process of CPR person X gets a cracked rib.

        Now, person X can legally and lawfully file a civil lawsuit againt the officer for saving his life.

    I notice that these gutless pandering politicians didn’t vote to eliminate Legislative Immunity. They can’t be sued for things they say in a floor debate or a hearing on a bill, or the consequences of a law that they file or vote for.

    Why not? These politicians can hurt every single citizen with a vote. Yet, they refuse to make themselves accountable. I smell a ballot question coming on this.

        July 14, 2020 at 7:35 pm

        I totally agree. They sit in their protected enclaves affecting the lives of all citizens with a “Yay” or “Nay” without really thinking about the consequences of what they do.
        And if they think that the sue-happy residents of MA will not find a way to apply this to other state government employees they are mentally deficient.
        Show me an attorney that couldn’t use this to sue the pants off any teacher, health enforcement officer, judge, or fire fighter than this is an attorney not worth the degree they have hanging on a wall.
        Any time a police officer is involved in ANYTHING that some disgruntled person then thinks they have been “harmed” then it’s going to be guilt by association. Civil lawsuits have such a low threshold, and relying on a “jury of your peers” to protect you is wishful thinking at best.
        The law of unintended consequences is quite staggering here. If the house passes this turd and Charlie doesn’t veto it, then this is going to open a shit storm can of worms like nothing we have ever seen.
        First police that can retire, will. Others who are perhaps auxiliary or part time are just going to say forget this and leave. The rest will be so terrified of losing everything they will just do nothing and crime will skyrocket everywhere.
        You think criminals will not take advantage of this? Get real. This is a nightmare in the making.

    I knew the second I heard about this you would for sure do a blog.

    This is the most disgusting bill ever. If this happens, this could cause detrimental damage to the city of Brockton where i reside.

    Get your typing fingers ready EVERYONE. Reach out to your REP.

    Here are 2 scenarios that will happen if this goes into affect-

    1. Domestic violence calls- let’s say Jim beats Mary, cops come and he is arrested only to be bailed out and goes back to Mary and beats her again. That 2nd time the cops can’t arrest again cause it hasn’t been 24 hrs.

    2. Mary’s 1 year old is not breathing. First to arrive is a cop. He can’t perform CPR to save the 1 year olds life either for fear of a civil lawsuit if he breaks a rib of the 1 year old. Which if CPR IS done correctly, a broken rib almost always happens.

    This bill doesn’t show me HOW the fuck this helps black fucking lives. Oh and one more point- #12 of the bill is to rid the no knock warrant and they have to knock and wait 15 seconds before entering… This exact thing got that Breona Lewis girl shot. They knocked, gave her dirtbag bf enough time to grab his gun and fire at police. They then returned for and killed her.

    You can all claim, or believe, that ending (or “modifying”) qualified immunity won’t impact safety or police response to issues. You are wrong.

    Dont be crying for the police in a year or two if this moves forward when there are running gun battles in the streets, kids are being killed in large numbers and even your white suburbs have “unexpected” surges in crime and overdoses.

    A cop’s life, livelihood, freedom and family should matter more than a criminal who has turned his back on polite society and the social contract.

      I’ll explain it to you because it seems like you can’t follow simple logic. Right now a cop can’t be sued personally (the city, town or state who employs him can). If the bill passes, then he can be sued personally. If he/she is married, and they own a house, car, etc. together, then that is fair game in a lawsuit. So the spouse can lose everything even if though they weren’t involved in the incident that the person is suing over. Get it? If you don’t, you’re a bigger moron than we all thought.

    The mob mentality is getting out of hand. While I believe this gets killed before it even gets to Baker’s desk, it sends a horrible message to all of our excellent local officers. An absolute shame and embarrassment. Thank you Senator Fattman for actually having the balls to stand up to the mob on behalf of the silent, but increasingly aggravated, majority.

    Was that white boy with knuckle tats the 15-year old Woburn gangbanger? There are 15-year old white boy gangbangers with knuckle tats in Woburn? What a shithole. And what a stupid bitch of a mom to let her 15-year old act like that and then sit beside him defending him.

    “Eliminating qualified immunity won’t solve any problems”

    You’re full of shit here, bud, and you know you are, because of the way you formed your argument: You had to broaden your defense of it out to “public servants,” rather than simply police. And stop with that “public servant” bullshit.

    Cops who actually follow procedure and do the right thing will be just fine. Cops who think rules don’t apply to them won’t get the kind of protection from QI that allows them to think the rules don’t apply to them in the first place. Oh, the horror.

    Voting “yeah” or “nay” here only indicates whether you’re up for running the wrath of the public sector unions during the next election cycle. And you can take your public sector unions and stuff them up your ass sideways.
