So I have heard this term recently "stop and frisk" and wondered what my fellow DP members thought about it.
Should the police have the right to stop you, pat you down and then release you.
Stop and Frisk Practices | New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) - American Civil Liberties Union of New York StateOnly 10 percent of stops led to summonses or arrests. The overwhelming majority of New Yorkers questioned and frisked by the NYPD were engaged in no criminal wrongdoing.
In my mind, I see a police car pulling up next to a you as you are walking on the sidewalk, they get out and say put your hands on the car then proceed to ask you some questions as they are patting you down/looking though your belongings and after they don't find anything wrong with you or your belongings they say have a nice day, move along now.
Should this be legal ?
