And I believe that it is a considerable stretch to claim that this is the case.
The U.S. Supreme Court first introduced the qualified immunity doctrine in 1967 how is that fact a stretch. Its was not law till then and it was not created by law makers but from the bench were they gave Law Enforcement rights that did not exist before their decision. It is also the same group that is crying foul over the DACA and LGBTQ+ rulings while defending qualified immunity how is that not hypocritical?
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
