The court would need to grant certain officials absolute immunity, because if they were not every one that wanted to get out of what they did wrong could just turn on the official and try and press charges until every one forgot what they did bad in the first place. With the passing of the section, it wasn’t really a good time period because of the large amount of officials that were involved in the klan because, with the new changes they found a way to bail them selves out of being held accountable for what they had done in the previous years. The immunity section is actually a good thing when dealing with the courts and arrests though, it the person that is preforming the judging and arrests could be charged for any little thing that the criminal believed was wrong there would never be any process there would just be more and more cases that would fill up the court rooms for more important cases instead of the ones trying to divert the argument.
