The Terry v

The Terry v. Ohio supreme court case was one of the biggest case regarding the policy of stop and frisk. It lasted a great impact in the practice of stop and frisk, sometimes called Terry stop. An officer stopped John Terry the petitionary, after the officer observed Terry staring at the store for possible robbery. The officer ran a quick search and after approaching three men, the officer found revolvers that denied their appeals. The Terry stop gleaned on the information about whether the search was the protection of the officers and the public safety. The stop must have a reasonable suspicion to initiate the suspect and explain why the suspect behavior suggested criminal activity. The stop had to give reasons and explain, more than just hunches. The Terry stop cannot take the suspect to the police, move to a second different location, use excessive force and search for anything besides weapons.
