N.D.Ill.: Officer watching video of street radioing officer on the street about seeing a gun was RS

A Chicago PD officer was watching the streets with surveillance cameras, and he observed defendant apparently with a firearm under his shirt. That report to others who conducted the frisk was collective knowledge for a stop [although that phrase isn’t used]. The video was played at the suppression hearing. United States v. Dameron, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199028 (N.D.Ill. Oct. 15, 2021).

“Defendant argues that CBP did not have reasonable suspicion that Defendant was currently engaged in criminal activity or that such evidence was on his [electronic] devices. Although Defendant argues he is not engaged in a ‘divide and conquer’ analysis of each fact and circumstance, this is precisely what Defendant is attempting. Defendant points to various facts to argue that the facts in this case are in and of themselves not illegal or even suspect.” United States v. Xiang, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19904 (E.D.Mo. Oct. 15, 2021).*

The inventory of plaintiff’s vehicle was justification for its search. Motion for summary judgment was properly granted. Shandor v. City of Eastpointe, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 30977 (6th Cir. Oct. 13, 2021).*
