TDCAA TDCAA Community Civil AG Opinion KP-0343 No duty of officer to prevent other officer from violating rights?
Recently released AG OP KP-0343 essentially states that there is no "absolute duty" under Texas law for a peace officer to "intervene to prevent another peace officer from violating the rights of a citizen." Reliance on this opinion as a defense to a peace officer's inaction "to prevent another peace officer from violating the rights of a citizen" seems questionable. Also, I can see a plaintiff using this opinion as a sword instead of a shield. Thoughts?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Ben Stool,
