A term that's often misunderstood because stupid people can't tell the difference between "qualified" and "absolute".

In the United States, qualified immunity is a legal principle that grants government officials performing discretionary functions immunity from civil suits (< two very important words right there) unless the plaintiff shows that the official violated "clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known".

So you can't sue that cop as a way to get back at him because he pulled you over for going 75 mph in a 55 zone. Or because he arrested you for drinking and driving even though you didn't wanna be arrested.

Qualified immunity does NOT prevent police officers from being charged with crimes (get this through your thick skull), nor does it prevent people from suing the departments the police officers work for.
Idiot: "Hey, did you hear about that cop who shot an innocent man 200 times? I heard he got away with the murder because of qualified immunity."

Guy with common sense: "That's not how qualified immunity works... at all."

Idiot: "But... some guy on Twitter said it, so it must be true!"

Get a Qualified immunity mug for your dog Trump.
A term that stupid and willfully ignorant people on social media invented to make good cops look bad even when they didn't actually do anything bad.

"Copaganda" is a portmanteau of "cop" and "propaganda". May also be used to refer to very short videos of cops arresting people or using force without any additional context.
Cop: Ends up in the news because he saved 2 unconscious people from a fire

Moron: "Look at this fucking copaganda. I mean, are you serious? No cop has ever done anything good in the history of cops. Every single cop executes every black man they see, which is why black people are now extinct. ACAB FUCK 12"

Don't be that moron.
