D.N.J.: How this case determined credibility of the witnesses

“The Court credits Officer Pompeo’s testimony because he offered a version of events that is not only plausible but also aligns with the respective motivations of law enforcement and Ms. Rodriguez, in light of other, undisputed facts surrounding the events of March 21, 2019.” The officer’s version makes sense; the defense witness’s version is completely implausible that the officer would enter alone and endanger his own safety. United States v. Johnson, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90143 (D. N.J. May 22, 2020).*

A state window tint violation (backed up by the officer’s bodycam) justified defendant’s stop. United States v. Davis, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 16621 (11th Cir. May 26, 2020).*
