W.D.Wash.: RS present for protective weapons search of car under Long

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop, and that included a protective weapons search for a firearm under Michigan v. Long, which produced one. United States v. Caraang, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 81814 (W.D. Wash. May 15, 2018).*

In the former Pennsylvania AG’s prosecution, a second search warrant produced additional facts which led to an amended charge against her. There objectively was more, and that meant she couldn’t prove selective prosecution. Essentially, she presented no facts at all supporting that claim (which the state courts already well recognize). Commonwealth v. Kane, 2018 PA Super 137, 2018 Pa. Super. LEXIS 542 (May 25, 2018).*
