From Emily Ekins at CATO

Survey results show good news for police reform. 63% of Americans support ending qualified immunity for police. The problem is those in power don’t – a majority of Republicans, police (as represented by the unions) and the judicial system.

  • 84% of people oppose erasing records of police misconduct every few years.
  • 62% of people say police unions should not be allowed to collectively bargain over methods used to hold police officers accountable for misconduct.
