They must be idiots! Are these judges soft or just soft in the head? They need to spend some time doing ride alongs before they make such ill-informed decisions. If the furtive movements had not resulted in finding some contraband, would we be having this case at all.

Christopher A. Bailey, Paralegal

Interesting case on the line between legal and illegal searches and seizures. But those of us legal scholars know that there is fine line in the first place and the hindge is on probable cause, which is a matter of perspective.

Buckley

This is not a sound decision and it sets the stage for uneven, inefficient law enforcement. A meandering analysis and ambiguous parameters for officers. The dissent hits the nail on the head. Ultimately, the majority opinion manages to make DC residents less safe.
