   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Smith, Melloy and Colloton, Circuit

   U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri - Jefferson City    
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Riley, Chief Judge, and Benton, Circuit 
   Judge] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law. Campus police officers' threat to perform a 
   protective search, when they had reasonable suspicion that defendant was 
   armed and dangerous, coupled with a reach towards his person did not 
   transform the lawful Terry stop into full-blown arrest and the district 
   court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress; with respect 
   to a second arrest and search, the officers knew defendant had been given 
   an oral warning not to come on the university campus and they had probable 
   cause to arrest defendant for trespassing and to conduct a search incident 
   to arrest.

   discretion by denying defendant's motion to reduce his sentence under 18 
   U.S.C. Section 3582(c)(2); the court did not commit clear error when it 
   gave greater weight to defendant's post-sentencing violence behavior than 
   to his post-sentencing educational and other accomplishments.

   discretion by denying defendant's motion to reduce his sentence under 18

   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Colloton, Gruender and Kelly, Circuit 
   Judges]

   grooming policy at the time prison officials enforced, or threatened to 
   enforce, the rules against him. Judge Kelly, concurring in part and 
   dissenting in part.
