"How the Supreme Court Protects Bad Cops," is Erwin Chemerinsky's OpEd in the New York Times. He's the dean of the UC-Irvine School of Law.
In recent years, the court has made it very difficult, and often impossible, to hold police officers and the governments that employ them accountable for civil rights violations. This undermines the ability to deter illegal police behavior and leaves victims without compensation. When the police kill or injure innocent people, the victims rarely have recourse.
