D.Neb.: Affidavits for SWs are judged by what they contain, not what they lack

Affidavits for search warrants are judged by what they contain, not what they lack. United States v. Cass, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 195502 (D. Neb. Sep. 30, 2022), adopted, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197043 (D.Neb. Oct. 26, 2022).

It was clearly established at the time that an officer putting his weight on his knee in the arrestee’s back can cause compression asphyxia and death and was excessive. Perkins v. Edgar, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 29926 (9th Cir. Oct. 25, 2022).*

Defendant abandoned the car that was searched and disclaimed any knowledge of the key found on his person which he then left behind. United States v. Lawson, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 29957 (11th Cir. Oct. 27, 2022).*
