THE JUDICIARY HAS NOT BEEN COVERING ITSELF WITH GLORY IN THE LIBERTY-PROTECTING DEPARTMENT: The Fourth Amendment shuffle.

My proposal: If your civil rights are violated by a government official, you should be able to sue. if a jury agrees, the cop should be subjected to humiliating corporal punishment: Flogging, the stocks, tar and feathers, etc. This would have a much greater deterrent effect than monetary damages, especially under our current — judge-created and unconstitutional — regime of governmental immunity.
