Troy Costner started this petition to Joe Biden and

Qualified Immunity in the United States of America, is a legal principle that grants government officials performing discretionary functions immunity from civil suits unless the plaintiff shows that the official violated "clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known". It is a form of sovereign immunity less strict than absolute immunity that is intended to protect officials who "make reasonable but mistaken judgments about open legal questions", extending to "all [officials] but the plainly incompetent or those who knowingly violate the law". Qualified immunity applies only to government officials in civil litigation, and does not protect the government itself from suits arising from officials' actions.    

This basically means that a person who is working for the state will not be held accountable for their actions because of their employment by the state/government.

Qualified immunity applies to all local, state, and federal executive branch officers...

This applies for police officers who seemingly get away with MURDER.

If we end qualified immunity there would be no need to defund the police because they would be held to the same standards as every other human being. Of course circumstances should always be considered because self defense is a God given right that nobody can argue. On the other hand these are "trusted" publicly paid officials and they are able to be operate without accountability. 

This case is personal for me, because my daughter was "LOST" in the system due to a state worker who did not do her job correctly and couldn't care less about my daughter's future or mental health.

If it were not the state doing this it would be unequivocally considered HUMAN TRAFFICKING! Lisa Johnson did not do her job and because she acted under the name of The State of North Dakota my daughter was treated just another unwanted black kid in the system.  #freeilyanathestar
