Immunity from prosecution for politicians: Does immunity from prosecution incentivize politicians to break the law?

  • Yes it Does

    Immunity from prosecution creates incentive for politicians to break the law. If they are immune from prosecution, they have less incentive to obey the law like most average citizens they are supposed to represent. They are making laws for the rest of us to follow knowing they don't have to bother obeying themselves.

  • Politicians break the law because they want to, not because they can get away with it

    If the history of laws has shown anything, it's that they're meant to be broken. Criminals as a whole, either aren't thinking about the consequence of their crime, or have enough incentive to commit the crime that they will do it anyway. In either case, the crime is almost always predisposed, and immunity is only a benefit.
