OK , had a hypothetical situation presented to me today, see if you agree with what I came up with... One day an anonymous person called the Atlanta PD with a tip. The caller said that a young African-American male wearing a plaid shirt was standing at a specific bus stop by a pawn shop. The caller said that the young man was carrying a gun. The caller described the young man as well as two other young men who were with him. Officer Anderson, a 14 year vet and her partner went to check out the anonymous tip. When they got to the bus stop six minutes later, the officers saw 3 young, African-American men. Just like the caller said , one young man was wearing a plaid shirt. The officers did not see a gun. While the three young men were hanging out by the bus stop, Officer Anderson and her partner approached them and frisked all three. The young man in the plaid shirt, J.L., had a gun in his pocket. The other young men were not carrying any weapons. The police arrested J.L. J.L., who was almost 16 when he was arrested , was charged with breaking two GA. laws . First , J.L. was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a license. Second , he was charged with possessing a firearm while under the age of 18. J.L.s trial took pplace in the Superior Court. There, his attorney argued the the search of J.L. was unreasonable and that it violated the Fourth Amendment because it was based on an anonymous tip. THe attorney argued that because the search was unreasonable , the gun taken from J.L. during the search should not be used as evidence. The trial court agreed with J.L.s attorney. The State of GA. appealed the superior courts decision to the Georgia Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals disagreed with the superior court. The Court of Appeals ruled that the search of J.L. was reasonable and that the gun could be used as evidence against J.L. My finding: The search was not legal because unlike in Terry V. Ohio no suspicious nor unusual activity was observed so there was no reason for the officers to approach and search the young men, and as stated in Draper V. United States an officer can act on information provided by an informant if the information is corroborated by the officer, the information was not corroborated before the search and therefore I feel that the search violated J.L.s Fourth Amendment right. Anything to add?
