N.D.Cal.: Facial showing of racially discriminatory arrests made to get more discovery

Defendant made a sufficient showing of race-based selective enforcement in arrests in Operation Safe Streets in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco to get more discovery. United States v. Mumphrey, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 85593 (N.D.Cal. June 30, 2016).

Defendant was the occupant of a vehicle that matched the general description of a robbery getaway vehicle near the robbery call and heading away from the scene. That was reasonable suspicion to stop. Getting the occupants out and handcuffing them was reasonable when backup arrived. The video shows consent to search the car, in part because he didn’t interfere [which doesn’t make sense since interfering is a crime or can lead to other bad things]. United States v. Daniel, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 86412 (E.D. Mo. July 4, 2016).*
