I understand having to have some government officials be immune from having lawsuits against them. However, it is probably not the best way to go about immunity rules. If an angry inmate complains about ‘unconstitutional prison conditions’ or claims that there was an instance/were instances of ‘police misconduct’, it is debatable whether or not those government officials that the inmate is targeting should be held liable or be granted immunity from the claims.
One must assume that the ‘violent Ku Klux Klan problems in the South after the Civil War’ is referring to the problems that the United States had with policemen, judges, mayors, etc. being racist and siding with the KKK so much that it sometimes interfered with court cases and arrests. More than likely, most of the officials that were accused of such acts were granted immunity, and the cases probably never became popular news.
