Authorities in Los Angeles say a sheriff's deputy who claimed he had been shot by a sniper actually cut two fake bullet holes in his uniform with a knife and made the whole thing up.

Seems...” It was not immediately clear why it took so long to notice that Mr Reinosa had not suffered any wounds.” Really???

Mr Reinosa has been relieved of his duties and is facing a criminal investigation.

Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine in United States federal law that shields government officials from being sued for discretionary actions performed within their official capacity, unless their actions violated "clearly established" federal law or constitutional rights.
That is a great joke.

The supreme Court established a two-part test. First, “do the facts alleged show that the [official’s] conduct violated a constitutional right?” And second, “is the right clearly established?”
But the lower courts don’t like that test. The violation of a constitutional right would hang to many officials, elected or appointed. So, their standard is “grossly and flagrantly unconstitutional.”
Violating your constitutional rights is just not good enough.
