What it takes to get a good Qualified Immunity opinion out of the Fifth Circuit: "A federal court has ruled that officers will not be entitled to qualified immunity and may be sued after they hogtied an unarmed and compliant man and pressed his body into the pavement until he died more than five minutes later."
