CA8: The challenge to RS isn’t piece by piece; RS on totality

The police surveilled defendant’s garage where he was alleged to sell meth from his home in the early morning or at night when he was home. The totality of circumstances add up to reasonable suspicion, and defendant’s challenge was to the individual circumstances, which isn’t the question. United States v. Collins, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 4975 (8th Cir. Feb. 28, 2018).*

Defendant’s motion to reconsider denial of the motion to suppress a protective sweep in light of a case decided by the Tenth Circuit in December is denied because the December case isn’t new law. United States v. Mora, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30708 (D. N.M. Feb. 27, 2018).*

Defendant doesn’t show that his stop for his seat belt violation was racially motivated. After the stop it turned out that all the occupants had no seat belts on. The stop was not overlong. It turned out one of the occupants had been previously removed from the United States. Identity information is not suppressed. United States v. Zavala, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 32504 (D. Me. Feb. 28, 2018).*
