I have to point out again that what New Mexico can do and apparently did was to set up its own set of civil rights laws under which the doctrine of qualified immunity does not apply. It cannot outlaw the doctrine of qualified immunity in federal law. Qualified immunity as it exists does not prevent police officers from being held liable/accountable in other context. Even if qualified immunity protects a police officer from a federal claim for a fatal shooting, say, the police officer can still be sued for wrongful death under state law. At a guess, this probably is not going to have much of an impact on the number or quality of police in New Mexico.
