Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

One of my old teachers denies qi to the policeman

I, Burgers Allday, have taken classes, and these classes have had teachers from whom I have learned and to whom I collectively owe a great debt of gratitude.  Now I see that one of my teachers has written a panel opinion denying qualified immunity (qi) to Tustin, California police officer Osvaldo Villarreal.

Case: AKH v. City of Tustin, Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit 2016


It has long been clear that “[a] police officer may not seize an unarmed, nondangerous suspect by shooting him dead.” Garner, 471 U.S. at 11. Viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the plaintiffs, that is precisely what Officer Villarreal did here.
