Texas: 14 tote Kinder an Grundschule

“Neither the Constitution, nor state law, impose a general duty upon police officers or other governmental officials to protect individual persons from harm — even when they know the harm will occur,” said Darren L. Hutchinson, a professor and associate dean at the University of Florida School of Law. “Police can watch someone attack you, refuse to intervene and not violate the Constitution.”

Dazu kommt 'qualified immunity':



Specifically, qualified immunity protects a government official from lawsuits alleging that the official violated a plaintiff's rights, only allowing suits where officials violated a “clearly established” statutory or constitutional right.

Einfach wird es nicht die hinter Gittern zu bringen, hoffe aber die schaffen es irgendwie.

Coggins was a federal prosecutor in the northern district of Texas from 1993 to 2001 and is now in private practice in Dallas. The biggest question for prosecutors, he said, would be how many officers to charge. Nearly 400 responded to the May 24 shooting, in which 19 students and two teachers died.

And in Texas, dereliction of duty charges are a second-degree misdemeanor, which might leave families dissatisfied, Coggins said.

“It would be almost unprecedented to bring this as a dereliction of duty,” Coggins said. “We investigate officers all the time for actions they take, we very rarely investigate them for actions they don’t take.”
