5. Can Officers Alvarez and Thomas followed Bruno from the time he left his job at a drug store near where the Bostons lived, or does that violate any of Bruno's rights?


6. Did Tommy and Mary expose themselves in violation of the municipal ordinance on lewd conduct? why, or why not? Why might this ordinance not be consitutional?


7. Do the officers have the right to search for anything in the auto? Once they find the black zippered bag can they open it, why or why not?


8. Can the police open the truck of the auto and make a search of it at the police station? why or why not?
