On Paul's subcommittee I/we talked about some very general and non-binding guidelines/criteria, at least for the more discetionary stops, as per PCR report, Fn 61, "see Commonwealth v. Lang Lek __ Mass. __ (Mass. App. Ct. 2/11/21)(an admitted pretext stop case, but evidence suppressed on other grounds): “We echo the concerns... of the SJC in its recent decision in Long, 485 Mass. at 726-730, and note that a policy of unbridled discretion is an obvious invitation to arbitrary action and, particularly when the few things known about a vehicle seen on the street can include the driver's race, it would obviously be a matter of concern were such a policy adopted, at leastwithout strict and explicit criteria for its use.”
