Do you believe it is reasonable for a suspect to wait 40 minutes while the police try to get a drug dog to the scene, then when the dog arrives on scene, it never alerts?
It is both unreasonable and illegal. I did not see any instance of this cited in the opinion, though (it's 148 pages).
In Illinois v. Caballes
, the Supreme Court held that holding anyone pulled over for a traffic violation for longer than it was reasonable to take care of the original violation to wait for a drug dog is illegal, because it turns a traffic violation into a drug investigation without any cause, just a hunch.
So holding a guy for a couple of days without reasonable suspicion of committing any crime is reasonable?
I think people who are held for longer periods are actually arrested for the original traffic violation, which is kosher under Atwater v. Lago Vista
ETA: And they were arresting people for violating Arizona's human trafficking laws.
