D.Nev.: Motorcycle gang’s jacket and other vague things wasn’t RS; a Terry frisk requires separate justification from a Terry stop

A Terry stop doesn’t automatically include the ability to conduct a frisk because they have separate justifications. Here, defendant was wearing a motorcycle gang jacket, but nothing else came close to providing reasonable suspicion, and the motion to suppress is granted. United States v. Cisneros 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26645 (D. Nev. Feb. 20, 2018).

Persons on federal supervised release have a lesser expectation of privacy than mere probationers, and defendant’s home was subject to search on reasonable suspicion, which the officers had. United States v. Robinson, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26773 (M.D. Ala. Feb. 20, 2018).
