Question description

Requires an Introduction and a Conclusion

At least 3 outside references (Wikipedia will not be considered as a reference) including court cases on: Liability of Law Enforcement Officers

(Keep in mind, while completing this assignment, the video you watched regarding the elderly man getting tased by the police officers because he was refusing to go to the hospital. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8sArlo-Scw)

Recent cases have addressed the issue of liability with regards to both police officers’ individual liability as well as the potential civil liability of government entities. From your readings Town of Castle Rock v. and Brosseau v. Haugen one might say that these cases could be said to favor law enforcement.

In 2-3 pages, respond to the following questions:
1. Do you think that this is a trend in this country towards stopping litigation against law enforcement officials?
2. Do you agree with the decisions in these cases?
3. Why or why not?
4. Do officers have enough to worry about without being concerned with potential lawsuits?
5. Should we eliminate the ability of citizens to sue government in the kinds of cases in these examples?

Written in APA format.
