Note to Baltimore DA: Turns Out

…it’s NOT ‘okay/LEGAL’ to run from the police, even if you didn’t do nuthin’.

Court Lets Police Stop People Who Run Away

WASHINGTON — People who suddenly run from police can be stopped and questioned, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday, even if officers have no other reason to suspect them of wrongdoing.

An “unprovoked flight” when an officer or a police car approaches is suspicious behavior, the court said. And officers are free to make “common-sense judgments” when deciding whether to stop a fleeing suspect.

Who knew? But SHE’S the ‘authority’, so so ought to have.

    The Baltimore DA is a hardcore Dem, so she’ll get a pass.

    And that was a pathetic ruling by the Supreme Court.
