HI: Announcement not required for SW execution on open tent

Officers had a search warrant for a tent in a homeless encampment. Announcement before entry wasn’t required where the tent was not shut. State v. Keanaaina, 2022 Haw. LEXIS 44 (Mar. 22, 2022).

Officers encountered defendant’s car double parked on a Boston street. They pulled up along side, engaged in a pleasant conversation, asked the driver to move the car, and he did. They followed and pulled the car over because it seemed suspicious where the car went. The stop was without reasonable suspicion. The traffic stop, if it was, was resolved by the car driving off. Plain view of gun suppressed. Commonwealth v. Daveiga, 2022 Mass. LEXIS 145 (Mar. 24, 2022).*

A student’s excessive force case against an officer at school showed enough to overcome qualified immunity. E.W. v. Detroit Pub. Sch. Dist., 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 7724 (6th Cir. Mar. 21, 2022).*
