In general, would you agree with a new law that requires individual police officers to pay, out of their own pockets, all costs that accrue from a false or wrongfully charged crime?
After all, if the individual suspect is eventually cleared of the charges, it doesn't mean they're not affected by being charged with a false crime. They have to pay the lawyer fees and they may even lose their jobs because of such charges. And without such a law, they're forced to eat all costs despite the fact that the charges have been dropped or dismissed.
I know I was pissed when the cops pulled me over and charged me with a false crime. I was on my way to work and I could have lost my job. Thank God I didn't, but I did lose a day's worth of pay and that isn't cheap. My lawyer's fees are also not cheap and if since I'm completely innocent, why is it my obligation to just eat the costs? If not the police officers, perhaps the courts should retrospectively pay all my costs that I've accrued thanks to their ridiculous laws and incompetent enforcers.
If we held them liable for their own wrongdoings, perhaps it would provide a crucial incentive for them to prevent any future wrongdoing.
