Sorry, IANAL but it's reasonable suspicion a crime has been committed yes? Would there ever be a situation where they would have to reveal what that reason is? It could get into extremely murky water quickly if it ends up being "I suspect you committed a crime because of hairdo/race/income/country of origin." Who knows what tactics they use.

I suppose any step in the right direction is good, no matter how small.
