In a certain municipality, a judge overturned a suspect’s conviction for possession of an illegal weapon. The suspect had fled upon seeing police and subsequently discarded the illegal weapon after the police gave chase. The judge reasoned as follows: the only cause for the police giving chase was the suspect’s flight; by itself, flight from the police does not create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act; evidence collected during an illegal chase is inadmissible; therefore, the evidence in this case was inadmissible.
Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps to justify the judge’s decision that the evidence was inadmissible?
(A) Flight from the police could create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act as long as other significant factors are involved.
(B) People can legally flee from the police only when those people are not involved in a criminal act at the time.
(C) Police can legally give chase to a person only when the person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act.
(D) Flight from the police should not itself be considered a criminal act.
(E) In all cases in which a person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act, police can legally give chase to that person.

Between C and E?

Nice one!
I will go with 'D' as the whole judgement rests on whether the chase was legal or not! Hence, if flight from police is not considered a criminal act so the chase itself is proved to be illegal thereby supporting the judgement.

Does it make sense!

(A) Flight from the police could create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act as long as other significant factors are involved. Doesn't support judge's decision

(C) Police can legally give chase to a person only when the person’s actions have
created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act. Correct. This supports judges decision. Police should not have chased based on the flight.
(D) Flight from the police should not itself be considered a criminal act.
Just restates what's given in the argument. No new
premise.

(E) In all cases in which a person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a
criminal act, police can legally give chase to that person. General
statement doesn't support judges decision. Also the chase seems to be one option for the police.

Oh yes, I agree with Thabk.

The Question here is: In a certain municipality, a judge overturned a suspect’s conviction for possession of an illegal weapon. The suspect had fled upon seeing police and subsequently discarded the illegal weapon after the police gave chase. The judge reasoned as follows: the only cause for the police giving chase was the suspect’s flight; by itself, flight from the police does not create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act; evidence collected during an illegal chase is inadmissible; therefore, the evidence in this case was inadmissible.

If you notice in the I statement the Judge says: "the only cause for the police giving chase was the suspect’s flight; by itself, flight from the police does not create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act".
Which means: Flight from police -------> does not create reasonable suspicion of criminal act.

Then in the II statement the judge says: "evidence collected during an illegal chase is inadmissible; therefore, the evidence in this case was inadmissible"
Which means: If illegal chase -------> then evidence inadmissible.

So there is no connection point between statement I and II. Hence we need an option that bridges this gap which is aptly pointed out by C.

(c) Police can legally give chase to a person only when the person’s actions have
created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act

Noburu,

C is more specific to what is being asked than E. E is the second best answer.

Sorry but I dont see the difference:

C.- Police can legally give chase to a person only when the person’s actions have
created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act

E.- police can legally give chase to a person in all cases in which a person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act

They actually have the same words!!!

Please clarify!

Noburu,

Qn: In a certain municipality, a judge overturned a suspect’s conviction for possession of an illegal weapon. The suspect had fled upon seeing police and subsequently discarded the illegal weapon after the police gave chase. The judge reasoned as follows: the ONLY cause for the police giving chase was the suspect’s flight; by itself, flight from the police does not create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act; evidence collected during an illegal chase is inadmissible; therefore, the evidence in this case was inadmissible.
Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps to justify the judge’s decision that the evidence was inadmissible?
(A) Flight from the police could create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act as long as other significant factors are involved.
(B) People can legally flee from the police only when those people are not involved in a criminal act at the time.
(C) Police can legally give chase to a person only when the person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act.
(D) Flight from the police should not itself be considered a criminal act.
(E) In all cases in which a person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act, police can legally give chase to that person.

I feel the difference between option C and E is very subtle.
E says that the police can legally give chase to the person "In all cases in which a person’s actions have created a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act". So the police can legally chase a person for other reasons as well, perhaps providing a loop-hole for making the evidence admissible.
C says that ONLY when the person's actions create a reasonable suspicion of a criminal act can the police legally chase the person; as the question states (Highlighted).

Hope this helps,
M

Here is my attempt at clarification :

If you look in to choice E , its like this :
In all cases of X , Y can happen. Its possible that there could be some cases of Z in which Y can happen as well. In otherwords the statement is not complete.

But choice C specifes cases in which Y can only happen. Does it make sense ?
