Currently there is concern about police brutality and overreach. One suggestion I've heard often is ending qualified immunity, and there are many videos with convincing arguments for removing the legal doctrine or scaling it down. I'm having trouble finding anyone arguing for qualified immunity.
What does the other side have to say? What are the arguments for police having qualified immunity?
Edit: I am talking about the US, although the general concept can apply to other countries.
People have asked for my research, here are some of the things that popped up when I was searching:

- Cato Institute (Against) sites: https://www.cato.org/blog/why-qualified-immunity
