Completely understandable, but this ought to be viewed as testing the law in a positive fashion.
The Judge was probubly following guidelines set before him in law and the case presented, and his decision mearly 'paves' the way to the Supreme
Court for resolution, as suggested thru an expected appeal.
It is unlikely the decision will be upheld, but either way the appeal will help to clarify the law, and firm-up perameters used for deciding what can
and cant be done by the police.
Without testing a law with a case variant, there is no method to demonstrate any validity of the law in certain applications, nor expose any
Constitutional violations or coverages.
