Second Circuit Criticizes Supreme Court Rationale in Hodari D.

U.S. v. Swindle, Docket No. 03-1773 (2d Cir. May 11, 2005) (Feinberg, Cardamone, and Parker)(Op. by Feinberg)

In a refreshingly frank decision, the Second Circuit upheld the denial of a suppression motion, finding that it was "constrained by relevant Supreme Court precedent" in affirming the legality of a seizure. In doing so, the Court was highly critical of that precedent -- California v. Hodari D., 499 U.S. 621 (1991) -- finding no "principled basis" for the decision.

The facts of Swindle are straightforward. While on patrol in an unmarked car in Buffalo, police were searching for a suspect whose physical description did not match that of the defendant, Swindle. While patrolling, they saw Swindle exit a "known drug house" that the suspect had supplied in the past, get in a car that resembled a car that the suspect had "been seen near" and drive away. The officers followed the car for a short time and then flashed their lights and attempted to pull him over. Swindle disobeyed the order, continued to drive, committed several traffic infractions, tossed a bag of crack cocaine outside the car, and fled on foot after eventually pulling over. The police caught him and charged him with possessing the crack.

The Court held that the police officer's initiation of the flashing lights constituted an order to stop. The Court further found that the police had no basis under Terry to initiate such a stop. Mr. Swindle did not match the description of the suspect they were looking for, he was not driving the same car as the suspect's (only a similar make to a car the suspect had "been seen near") and he had not committed any traffic infractions. In sum, "Swindle was simply a black man in a high-crime area driving a car that the wanted fugitive had previously been seen 'near." The Court was strongly critical of the officers conduct, calling it "a clear abuse of police authority." The Court thus had "no difficulty concluding that the officers acted unreasonably in ordering Swindle to pull over."

Unfortunately for Mr. Swindle, the Court felt constrained by Hodari D. in finding that the conduct to be evaluated for judging probable cause for a seizure includes the defendant's conduct after the unreasonable order to stop but before he was actually seized. Thus, even though the initial order to stop (by flashing police lights) was unreasonable and without cause, Mr. Swindle's subsequent conduct of violating traffic laws, tossing the drugs and fleeing on foot, did provide the officers with probable cause for the seizure. The Court did suggest, however, that Mr. Swindle might have a civil remedy for the abusive police conduct: "Although we are precluded from from holding that the officers' unreasonable order violated the Fourth Amendment, we believe that it was an abuse of authority for which Swindle and others like him might seek redress under a source of authority such as the Fourteenth Amendment or some provision of state law."

Mr. Swindle also argued that the initial order to stop was itself a seizure. While the Court was sympathetic to this argument, it once again felt constrained by Supreme Court precedent. In addition to Hodari D., the Court cited County of Sacramento v. Lewis, 523 U.S. 833 (1998) holding that "a police pursuit in attempting to seize a person does not amount to a 'seizure' withing the meaning of the Fourth Amendment." The Court was clearly troubled by this rule, noting that "a substantial argument could be made that a broader definition of 'seizure' -- or some other remedy -- is required to adequately protect Fourth Amendment values from the harms flowing from police initiation of Terry stops without reasonable suspicion."

The Court concluded with a final lament about the Hodari D. line of cases:

"Even if the kind of order given in Swindle's case is rare -- and we do not suggest that it is -- we see no persuasive reason for the law to tolerate it. In view of what we believe to be the controlling cases, however, we must affirm a conviction that was achieved with evidence obtained by an abuse of police power. A remedy for Swindle's Fourth Amendment complaint can come only from higher authority."

Whether that "higher authority" refers to SCOTUS or some other more-ethereal being, it would appear that Mr. Swindle's chances of ever receiving satisfaction from his Fourth Amendment claim are equally poor.

A typical dictionary definition of hypnosis states that it is: a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion. However, anyone who has tried hypnosis (and any self respecting hypnotist) will tell you that this is a very simplistic view of the subject!
A much better description comes from the Free Online Dictionary which states that hypnosis is: an artificially induced state of consciousness, characterised by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. So what does this mean and how can it be used to your advantage?

Well, the subject of hypnosis has been discussed and pondered since the late 1700s. Many explanations and theories have come and gone though science, however, has yet to supply a valid and well-established definition of how it actually happens. It's fairly unlikely that the scientific community will arrive at a definitive explanation for hypnosis in the near future either, as the untapped resources of our 'mostly' uncharted mind still remain something of a mystery.
However, the general characteristics of hypnosis are well documented. It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, deep relaxation and heightened imaginative functioning. It's not really like sleep at all, because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling you get when you watch a movie or read a captivating book. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the outside world. Your focus is concentrated intensely on the mental processes you are experiencing - if movies didn't provide such disassociation with everyday life and put a person in a very receptive state then they would not be as popular (nor would TV advertising be as effective!). Have you ever stated that a film wasn't great because you just couldn't 'get into it'???
This works very simply; while daydream or watching a movie, an imaginary world becomes almost real to you because it fully engages your emotional responses. Such mental pursuits will on most occasions cause real emotional responses such as fear, sadness or happiness (have you ever cried at a sad movie, felt excited by a future event not yet taken place or shivered at the thought of your worst fear?).
It is widely accepted that these states are all forms of self-hypnosis. If you take this view you can easily see that you go into and out of mild hypnotic states on a daily basis - when driving home from work, washing the dishes, or even listening to a boring conversation. Although these situations produce a mental state that is very receptive to suggestion the most powerful time for self-change occurs in the trance state brought on by intentional relaxation and focusing exercises. This deep hypnosis is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
In this mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed and they release all worries and doubts that normally occupy their mind. A similar experience occurs while you are daydreaming or watching the TV. You become so involved in the onscreen antics

Neurolinguistic Programming

In the early 1970s in America Richard Bandler, then a young college student studied the work of Fritz Perls and later Virginia Satir and found that he could reproduce their high-level therapy skills to a degree that even surprised him. Bandler seemed to have a natural ability to mimic (model) the language patterns by Virginia and Fritz.

At the University of California at Santa Cruz, Bandler who was well versed in the teachings of patterns in mathematics and computers teamed up with a college professor, John Grinder to help him understand the processes that were at work. Soon Bandler and Grinder, who used what he knew about patterns in linguistics, created a new model for personal growth called NeuroLinguistic Programming.

Bandler and Grinder had set out to model the hypnotic skills of Milton Erickson. They had astounding results. They built a communication model about human "thinking" and "processing" and used that model of how we see images, hear sounds, reproduces smells and tactile experiences in our mind to track and model the structure of subjective experiences.

Sounds very complicated but really it works very simply. Here is an example as used by Paul McKenna - probably the best & most successful hypnotist in the world.

Close your eyes and think of a negative memory. Become involved in the situation as best as you can. Feel the emotions that you felt, see the things you saw and hear the things you heard.

Now take that memory and project it onto a mental screen seeing yourself in the picture. Put a frame around the picture and view it as if it is an old photograph. Next drain all the colour from the picture and shrink the screen to the size of a matchbox.

Have the feelings associated with the picture decreased in any way?

Another good example of NLP involves Anchors. Have you ever smelt a certain perfume or aftershave and had it remind you of a certain person or situation? Gone to a certain place that brings feelings long forgotten flooding back? Or been in any situation that creates emotional responses that would not normally be associated with it? Well if you can answer yes to any of these then you have experienced anchors. Some anchors are associated with positive feelings and some with negative emotions. However, you should be aware that anchors can be consciously installed or already existing ones altered. Here is an example:

Think of a time when you were really happy. If you can't think of one then imagine something that would make you feel really happy. See what you would see, hear what you would hear and feel what you would feel. Really get into the picture and try to experience it as though it were happening now.

Now brighten the colours and make them richer. Increase the volume. Make the picture bigger, brighter, louder. That's it and more and more....

Now press your first finger against your thumb and fully experience your happy feelings. Do this everyday for 2 weeks and you will create an anchor that will instantly recreate these feelings. Whenever you want to feel like that again just press your thumb and first finger together and wham the feelings will come flooding back! Don't believe me? Just try it and see!!! hypnosis
