I'm writing to urge you to support Rep. Amash's bill that will end qualified immunity. We must fix the broken incentive structure that allows police officers to avoid accountability for the unjust use of force.
Qualified immunity establishes a near-impossible burden for victims of police brutality and contributes to the culture of unjust use of force. Officers who fail to protect our communities, and especially Black Americans, must be held accountable under the law.
As your constituent, I will be watching the action you take on this bill and want to see you take a bold stance against police brutality.
Thank you for your time.
