let's define what qualified means. It means that not everyone will qualify for immunity. The court system will decide who qualifies and who doesn't. Just because you are a cop it doesn't mean you can't be held responsible for your actions if they are deemed to be illegal. It also means that a mob can't be judge, jury , and executioner and lynch you. There has to be due process . So no it probably has portions that need to be amended but not dropped. The 1st thing I was taught in law school was , " What would a reasonable person do ?"

It is clear from this post that you either have no idea what Qualified Immunity is, or you are purposefully being obtuse.

Actually, he pretty much got it right. Without getting too far into the weeds, qualified immunity means that a police officer cannot be sued in civil court unless it's shown that the officer clearly violated the plaintiff's statutory or constitutional rights. I think that's pretty much what he said.
