Reference Series - Stop & Frisk (Part 1)
Course Hours: 1.0 Hours
This online course takes a deep dive into the landmark U.S. Supreme Court 1968 decision Terry v. Ohio. What were the facts of the case? What did Detective McFadden write about the incident in his single page report typed on a mechanical typewriter? What were the arguments both for, and against the authority to stop and frisk? Why did the Supreme Court decide the case the way it did? These questions, and more will be answered in the first part of three Reference Series courses on Terry v. Ohio. Part 1 focuses on the decision itself. In future courses, Part 2 will focus on the authority to "stop" and Part 3 will address the "frisk."
There are no prerequisites for this course.
