D.N.M.: CA10 recognizes blanket suppression for a “general search,” but this doesn’t measure up; “excessive photographing” not violation of 4A

Defendant doesn’t adequately explain why complete suppression is required for the search being allegedly excessive. It is a remedy under United States v. Medlin, 842 F.2d 1194 (10th Cir. 1988), when the officers’ search is overly excessive, but this just doesn’t measure up. There were officers and others there that had no reason to be there for what amounts to an illicit purpose to search far beyond the scope and purpose of the warrant. Also, the court does not find “excessive photographing” to be a violation of the Fourth Amendment. United States v. Coleman, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 114985 (D.N.M. Aug. 26, 2016).
