    trial where the family of that suspect, prosecutor, and citizens are there to present what should or should not be the consequence for that unlawful stop and frisk. The strength of this recommendation is that this way, police officers are not favored by the grand jury and prosecutor because the voices of the citizens and the family of that suspect could outweigh what the prosecutor and grand jury decides. Furthermore, it will keep police officers from stopping and frisking minorities, knowing that they have to go through all this work with the possibility that their job could be jeopardized and that there are serious consequences for their unlawful stop and frisk. The weakness of this recommendation, however, is that it could be hard to determine what an unlawful stop and frisk is because the officer’s point of view on what that is could differ from someone else. Another weakness of this recommendation is that police officers can still get away with the punishment by lying about their encounter of stopping and frisking a minority.

That way, when police…

When deemed as illegal, cops will not be able to physical evidence from the perpetrator, not giving any substance to a crime the perpetrator committed. Basically, if more criminals get away with harboring illegal drugs or weapons, more crimes will occur and violence will likely increase; police will not be able to confiscate these…

    Police should be allowed to stop and frisk subjects who seem suspect. In the case Terry v. Ohio (1968) the Supreme Court’s ruling allowed the procedures of “Stop and Frisk” to be acceptable. For a stop and first to be considered legal, the police officer must have reasonable suspicion that a crime has already occurred or is about to take place.
