E.D.Pa.: Each factor of RS alone might not be enough but totality was

“While Mr. Muldrow rightly points out the tip, his evasive behavior, and the neighborhood each standing alone, would not create reasonable suspicion, all of these factors together with Sergeant Stephan’s observation Mr. Muldrow appeared to have a gun and hid something in a bush after seeing a patrol car sufficiently gives rise to reasonable suspicion and justify a Terry stop.” United States v. Muldrow, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 204999 (E.D. Pa. Nov. 3, 2020).*

An apparent heavy object in defendant’s coat pocket was logically a firearm, and that was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Bankins, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 34817 (D.C.Cir. Nov. 3, 2020).*

Seizing plaintiff’s trailer for lack of a VIN after officers couldn’t find one was reasonable. Davis v. City of Alvarado, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 34740 (5th Cir. Nov. 3, 2020).*
