Even if Terry vs. Ohio established the constitutionality of frisking, I think you would still be protected unless the officer had a valid reason to be suspicious of you, individually from the masses, beyond simply attending the event.
HOWEVER... this was not in public, but private land on which a warrant was served. IMO, this sounds more like being at your drug dealer's house when he is raided and being searched then and there despite the cops not having a specific warrant to search you.
(The DEA just did it in San Diego and detained a UCSD student who was at his drug dealers house when they raided it. They took him in and left him in a holding cell for like 5 days.)
I didn't realize there were so many lawyers on the forums
I stated I am not...but that doesn't mean I can't read case law and interpret it to the best of my ability. Nor does being on a DJ forum mean I am an uneducated kid.
Are you a lawyer, or affiliated with law enforcement? I would be interested to hear either perspective.
well, there was a lot of talk this weekend, but we hear this is fully legal under the laws of the state of Virginia. and we do have some screwy laws
4 miles away from correctional facility... bravo. just bravo
