US District Court in CT: Gun Permit not Valid Cause for Arrest and Search

 

Federal Court Rules Governor's Executive Order Violates 2nd Amendment
US District Court in CT: Gun Permit not Valid Cause for Arrest and Search, iStock-884198420

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- On 12 November 2018, at about 8:34 pm, Basel Soukaneh was driving in Waterbury, Connecticut. He was not familiar with the area and was attempting to find a house he was considering purchasing. The GPS on his cellphone had frozen. The cell phone was on a holder on the dash, so he pulled over to adjust it. Shortly after he pulled over, with the engine running, an officer knocked on his window and demanded his license.  The interior lights on the vehicle were turned on.

According to the complaint, Soukaneh rolled down his window and said “Hi” to the officer. The officer yelled “Your driver’s license!”. Soukaneh then took the driver’s license and his pistol permit from the visor of his vehicle and gave them to the officer, while telling the officer he had a pistol in the car.

The officer opened the door, grabbed Soukaneh, and attempted to force him from the vehicle. Soukaneh had his seat belt on but was pulled half out of the car before he was able to turn off the ignition and release the seat belt.

Soukaneh suffers from two herniated discs, so this action caused significant pain.

The officer handcuffed Soukaneh and placed him in the back of the police car, in an awkward and painful position. The officer searched Soukaneh’s pockets and took $320 and a flash drive, which contained pictures of his deceased father.

The officer or other officers (other officers had arrived) then searched Soukaneh’s car passenger compartment and trunk. The incident is claimed to have lasted longer than 30 minutes. Eventually, Soukaneh was given a traffic citation and released.

Basel Soukaneh filed suit for violation of Constitutional rights under color of law in United States District Court, District of Connecticut on 25 July 2019.

Officer David Andrzejewski responded, though his attorney, that he was covered by qualified immunity because the plaintiff was in possession of a pistol, which made him objectively dangerous. The officer claimed qualified immunity applied simply because the pistol was there.

On 6 August 2021, The United States District Court, District of Connecticut found possession of a firearms permit and a firearm was not probable cause for arrest and search of a vehicle and was not sufficient cause for a Terry stop detention and search.

From courtlistener.com:

On this record, no reasonable officer could conclude that Plaintiff posed a meaningful threat of being “armed and dangerous” simply because he disclosed that he had a pistol and a license to possess it.Knowles, 525 U.S. at 118 (emphasis added). Any contrary holding would make it practically impossible for the lawful owner of a firearm to maintain a Fourth Amendment right to privacy in his or her automobile. See supra 9-10. The Court therefore denies summary judgment on the search of the vehicle and declines to immunize the office.

A consistent body of law is building. Mere possession of arms is not a justification to stop and/or search a person.  The courts have been clear. When a legal activity is commonly practiced in a community, the mere exercise of the legal activity is not a justification to stop, or arrest, or search people who are exercising that activity.

While it may not be germane to the case, it is amusing to note the brief put forward in defense of Officer Andrzejewski misspelled the plaintiff’s name.

Soukaneh, was misspelled as Soukarieh. It is unusual to see misspelled words or names in federal court cases.

The finding that Officer David Andrzejewski does not have qualified immunity, in this case, means a settlement is likely.

Because the case can go forward, discovery can be required. Evidence such as body camera video, radio logs, telephone logs, and officer timesheets are likely to be demanded from the department. These things could establish a clear, undisputed, timeline for the stop, arrest, and search.

Several other officers may be implicated.

In such situations, Police departments are often willing to settle for a few hundred thousand dollars of taxpayer money rather than submit to discovery.

“TEX” is one of the user names that the person who used to go by “Will” uses.

No one is “picking on” “TEX” – he makes emotional comments and then deletes them.

Many of his emotional comments are the result of his hero worship for certain people. Rather than just indicting his support for those people and acknowledging their faults, he screeches and rejects reality when others point out those faults.

For example, when it was pointed out that some of the founding fathers owned slaves, he had a complete melt-down.

When I was a cop and made a traffic stop, I couldn’t have cared less about the diver having a gun. I figured it wasn’t my business until something like a warrant was on file. I never had more than a couple of issues. Once a passenger went for his gun and I beat him to the draw. A second the driver reached in his jacket as if going for a gun. I stopped him and found that he just had made the dangerous move absentmindedly. The gun was in the glove box. It was illegally possessed. Other than that… Read more »

Figures that’s how you view civilians, TEX. I’ll bet on camera you parroted the words “individual” and “individuals” like a typical low-IQ enforcer who thinks it makes him sound more intelligent than saying person, man, woman, people, etc. To be fair, it did avoid the disaster of anyone thinking you were referring to a collective.

Maybe Dean will do a follow-up article on why none of the enforcers arrested David Andrzejewski for committing multiple felonies (while armed and while acting under the color of law) in their presence, or why none of the “good apples” back at the police station arrested Andrzejewski after reviewing the video recordings.

The only criminals in this event were the enforcers, based on the above article.

“These piece of shit politicians on both sides have destroyed our constitution so it makes doing the job all that much harder.”

Politicians had no impact on what occured during this event, based on the above article.

I agree that there may be more to the story (in either direction). Maybe video will be released soon.

Years ago I would visit an uncle, close to my age, who knew several farmers east of Waterbury, who appreciated us reducing the woodchuck herd from their fields. We would drive to a farm, walk the property, and perform this public service, no license. Considered ok then. He would let me use his 22 Hornet – man I wish I had that today!

More of the usual from our Governments. The process of changing government through lawsuits is very costly to citizens. I have spent my share plus some. Real change comes from the bad cops fearing that the citizen has the capability and willingness to defend themselves with their own weapons if challenged, and then a few examples of disarming police to prove that. Terry Stop works in both directions.

Andrzejewski should lose his job, any benefits (including pension) he was otherwise entitled to, be prevented from ever working for any government entity in the state of CT, be charged, convicted, incarcerated, and sued such that he loses his house and anything else he as of value.

Since there were (oddly) no “good apples” around to intervene, the other bad apples who participated in violating Soukaneh’s rights should all be fired.

It’s funny to you that they attempt to circumvent legitimate actions against them for violating people’s rights? Let me lay that out for you:

  • They have qualified immunity that protects them from frivolous actions, so they don’t need to attempt to hide their assets (related to those actions); but
  • They attempt to hide their assets, because of their concern about being justifiably sued.
