Sorry about the delay. I ate lunch and then took my dogs out for a walk.
This is one of those hypotheticals designed to see how well you understand the Fourth Amendment. You are on safe ground by saying that that the officer has violated Radley's rights, but as you can see, you are going to have to account for bits and pieces within the scenario where the officer would appear to have probable cause
to take the next step.
Basically, what you have to do here would be to take a position, (unlawful detention/police harassment), spot the issues and, wherever possible, show the officer's actions to be unreasonable by applying the law you've learned as it relates to each issue. If you can't show that something is unreasonable (such as some of what happens after the officer finds out about the burglaries and stops Radley's) you can always say that it would have been reasonable if that's all that happened but not in the context of all the circumstances.
Again, it's your reasoning and your awareness of the issues and law that will determine how good your paper is rather than the actual answer.
