U.S. v. Shaquille Robinson Oral Argument The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, heard oral argument on police stop and frisk policies. A West Virginia police department received an anonymous tip that a black man loaded a gun in a parking lot, concealed it, and left in a car with a white woman. A short while later, police stopped the car for a seatbelt violation, asked Mr. Robinson to exit the vehicle, frisked him, and found a firearm. West Virginia law allows citizens to arm themselves with concealed guns. The officer recognized Mr. Robinson and confirmed he was a convicted felon who was not allowed to carry firearms. To frisk someone, police must have a reasonable suspicion the person is armed and dangerous. A three-judge panel for this same court previously decided that the officer who frisked Mr. Robinson lacked reasonable suspicion that he was not only armed but also dangerous. They ruled that the frisk was unlawful. close
