Mass. supreme court rejects notion that simple 911 anonmyous call = RAS or PC

Jan 14, 2012
earth's crust

An important case in Mass that rejected SCOTUS opposite argument (see Navarette
v. California , 134 S. Ct. 1683 (2014)
) in addressing MA const. provisions

Of course in the case before the court in MA, more than just a 911 call was used to make RAS/PC ...

But the case has relevance to carry and police harassment...

Well what have we here? An intelligent ruling in Massachusetts? But as an FYI as per US v Deberry, you can't even be stopped solely for OC so the ruling is pretty much pointless
