The legitimate use of force distinguishes law enforcement from other branches of government (Kobler, 1975). Police officers are granted qualified immunity for using reasonable force regardless of the injury that results as long as they were acting in good faith (Anderson v. Creighton, 483 U.S. 1987). Recently however, questions regarding “good faith” abound as the names Ferguson, Eric Garner, Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott and Freddie Gray were added to a cohort that includes Rodney King, Abner Louima and Amadou Diallo. While the cohort is populated by names that many Americans have never heard, what determines inclusion is an allegation of police misconduct and the civil liability that results from such misconduct.
