Guilt by association...or, approximate location. This case reinforces the fact that the cops' use of "high crime area", with the blessings of the court, are specious and clearly unconstitutional when claimed as justification for a cop to violate a citizen's individual liberties.

might

to this lay person...the concept was intended to and already has violated due process ~ shades of "1984"

"Might" is the correct term and is used correctly if after discover a judge sides with the plaintiff...we ain't there yet. But, the reviewing courts ruling will (should) set the tone for the court overseeing the discovery phase.

The guy go screwed and everyone, even cops, know it, but cops don't care, they will violate your individual liberties at the drop of a hat.

nawll "might" usage is incorrect as the verbiage should read DID or WILL violate citizen's due process[es]
