I understand the logic though. A way to eliminate police use of force and murder is two fold. 1) you make the consequences harsh(charges and convictions carrying out hefty sentences) for using lethal force on innocent civilians or when deemed unnecessary. 2) increase the officer pay because you have to give them something so they have skin in the game. They get increased benefits but they are able to lose those benefits extremely quickly.
This is sadly because any police reform is going to have to be cleared by unions. As a voting bloc, they have a lot of power/influence. You have to concede something to get larger reforms.
I think that is the thinking here atleast. Officers are incentivized not to kill people because they 1) no longer have justice system protections/qualified immunity and 2) they have their livelihood to lose if caught being excessive.
Drew Brees' teammate Malcolm Jenkins among many stars to speak out against quarterback's controversial comments
"And it's unfortunate because I considered you a friend. I looked up to you. You're somebody who I had a great deal of respect for. But sometimes you should shut the f--- up."
Jenkins, a safety who agreed to a four-year deal with the Saints in March, later clarified his decision to take down the initial video.
