to remove them from his pockets will not necessarily convert a consensual encounter into a
______, although it may.



227) A temporary detention or ______________ is an exertion of authority that is something less than a full-blown arrest but more substantial than a simple "__________ " or
" consensual encounter".



228) A "_______" occurs whenever a reasonable--and innocent--person would

reasonable suspicion


232) To establish "reasonable suspicion" both the quality and quantity of the information you need is considerably less than the "________ _________" you need to arrest or search. "Reasonable suspicion" is a less demanding standard than probable cause and requires
a showing considerably less than preponderance of the evidence.

probable cause


233) "reasonable suspicion" is evaluated based on objective facts. Your subjective thinking , i.e., the purpose behind your search or seizure (detention or arrest), should have no bearing on a
court's determination of the legality of your action. Your "_________ intentions" are irrelevant in determining whether a detention or an arrest was justified.



234) A detention can never be based solely on a hunch, rumor, intuition, instinct, or curiosity. Rather, you must have _________ facts justifying your suspicion and you must be

238) If you approach someone or a group and one or more of them walks or runs away, and you
give chase, your act of chasing after the person does not constitute a detention. As the United
States Supreme Court has made clear, there is no "______" until you have actually physically stopped the person, or he stops on his own and submits to your ______.



239) The United States Supreme Court has declined to create a "________" rule regarding flight. That is, the court has refused to rule either (1) that flight alone will
always justify a detention, or (2) that flight alone can never _______ a detention.

bright line


240) Instead, both the US Supreme Court and the California Supreme Court have held that flight is merely one factor in the _______ ______ ______ _______ which a court will look at in determining whether reasonable suspicion existed. However, it is an important factor, because fleeing from police officers, as opposed to simply refusing to cooperate, is inherently suspicious and therefore "can be a key factor in determining whether in a
particular case the police have sufficient cause to detain."
