Depends. Are you a cop or a human in this scenario?

a video recording enabled them to identify the 31-year-old Wiggins as the suspect. Federal, state and local authorities searched for Wiggins over two days, checking into hundreds of tips.

Rewards totaling $46,000 had been offered for information leading to his arrest.

Technically, it was about the extent of protection (including from rape by inferiors) a prison official must provide to inmates. In the end (as I read it), the decision came down to the rejection of the claim that the sheriff knew of prior incidents, as the one complaint he had received had been rejected (recanted, with the inmate claiming a psychotic episode).

The sheriff was claiming qualified immunity from charges based on his negligence in failing to prevent the rape; he had hired only male prison guards and knew that the guards (and prisoners) knew of camera "blind spots".

He also knew that male guards weren't supposed to enter the womens' prison or areas unless absolutely necessary but still only hired men.

Qualified immunity jurisprudence needs to be tossed out.

I think my proposal to deal with systemic police issues merits a closer look. It's got real vision.

That's ok, Sithrak still hates you unconditionally.

when the "prison rape is a good form of punishment" turns into "this means we should sentence gays to death, because they'll enjoy prison"

The state of South Dakota disagrees, arguing that the alleged anti-gay bias is not at all like the racial bias demonstrated in the Peña-Rodriguez case. The Supreme Court's ruling was "narrowly tailored" only for cases where a conviction was based on race and "did not create an exception for alleged homosexual bias," Assistant Attorney General Paul Swedlund wrote in a court filing. Part of the Supreme Court's logic in Peña-Rodriguez was that racism had played a distinct role in "thwarting aspirations of equality" in the system. The same could not be said for anti-gay bias, Swedlund argued. Our history is "not replete with 'stark and unapologetic' anti-homosexual jury verdicts. No wars have been fought over it. No nationwide programs have been perpetrated for the enslavement or eradication of homosexuals," he wrote. "No politician has ever proposed constructing a wall to keep homosexuals out of the country. The acceptance of equality in regard to non-racial distinctions has occurred largely peaceably and with comparatively greatly less controversy."
Lol.

Turns out the pigs sometimes do go too far for qualified immunity.


N.B. the police can still get qualified immunity; this was only a denial of a summary motion for q.i.
