Several judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit rebuked their colleague for claims he made about policing in a dissent published Wednesday, with some saying his arguments ignores “the details of the familiar perils of over-policing” for Black Americans and backs racist policing tactics.

The circuit on Wednesday handed down an en banc ruling affirming a district court’s decision to suppress a gun and other evidence that officers with the Richmond Police Department in Virginia seized from a man, Billy Curry. The police were responding to a shooting when they stopped the man, but the court found the search was not based on exigent circumstances, which allows for warrantless searches, and was therefore unlawful.
