A bill introduced in the Ohio House would create a process to sue police officers for violations of rights in state court without the possibility of “qualified immunity” as a defense. Rep. Thomas West (D-Canton) introduced House Bill 332 (HB332) on June 1. The legislation would create a cause of action in state courts to sue police officers “who, under color of law, and by the officer’s act or omission in the course of the performance of the officer’s official responsibilities, subjects or causes to be subjected any other individual to the deprivation of that individual’s individual rights,” without the possibility of qualified immunity as a defense. The bill specifically defines “individual rights” as “all rights of an individual that are secured by Article I of the Ohio Constitution, and that create binding obligations on government actors to protect those rights.” #ohio #qualifiedimmunity #libertarian #10thAmendment #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/06/ohio-bill-would-create-state-process-to-end-police-qualified-immunity/

Lessons for Liberty from John Dickinson and the Farmer Letters Published in response to the hated Townshend Acts of 1767, Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania were more popular in the colonies than any other publication until Thomas Paine’s Common Sense in 1776. They asserted the colonial cause against imperial British overreach and helped to lay the groundwork for the U.S. Constitution drafted two decades later. The letters also presented important ideas about resisting usurpation. #liberty #libertarian #founders #history #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/02/lessons-for-liberty-from-john-dickinson-and-the-farmer-letters/

Over the last couple of years, there has been a strong grassroots push to prohibit or limit facial recognition technology. The fact that facial recognition is extremely inaccurate, especially in identifying African Americans and other ethnicities with dark complexions, has become a central talking point in the case against the technology. But even if facial recognition was 100 percent accurate, it would still pose significant risks to privacy and would still need to be limited or banned. Facial recognition empowers the government to ignore basic privacy rights with impunity. It should be limited or banned – no matter how accurate it becomes. #facialrecognition #surveillance #privacy #libertarian #constitution https://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2020/11/06/even-at-100-percent-accuracy-facial-recognition-would-still-be-dangerous-to-liberty/
