Content warning: general discussion of police brutality against Black people.

What if we told you that, at least partly, the reason that police brutality persists so strongly in America today is corruption in President Nixon's Air Force? Drunk Law School is back with the first episode of a special three-part series on qualified immunity, Under Color of Law, with the case that created qualified immunity as we know it: Harlow v. Fitzgerald (1982).

Drinks: Gimlet and Gin Punch made in homage to Cato Alexander, the founding father of American cocktail making.
