IL: Flight from gunshots is not RS

Defendant’s flight into his house on hearing gunshots was not reasonable suspicion to give chase or probable cause to enter the house to arrest him. Anybody would flee gunshots. People v. Craine, 2020 IL App (1st) 163403, 2020 Ill. App. LEXIS 193 (Mar. 26, 2020).

“Appellant argues that his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination was violated when he was forced, via search warrant and an order to compel, to tell police the password to his locked cell phone. While that might otherwise be an interesting issue, there is nothing to analyze here. Appellant does not identify anything that the police obtained from his phone nor how anything obtained from his phone was used for purposes of their investigation or as evidence at trial. We affirm as to the balance of the issues raised as they deserve no discussion at all.” Love v. State, 2020 Fla. App. LEXIS 4052 (Fla. 5th DCA Mar. 27, 2020).*
