Most of the constitutional scholars consider the prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures as one of the most fundamental freedoms which the Bill of Rights clearly protects. This central freedom supports and protects other necessary freedoms, such as free speech, press, assembly and religion. Lately, this core freedom has become a very controversial debate topic as big American cities, such as New York City, have instituted police procedures describeed as "stop and frisk." In such cities, when a police officer has reason to believe that a person is armed there is a set protocol for officers. Officers can make stops based on the suspicious activities and frisk individuals for weapons. Courts have found this to be in the boundaries of the Fourth Amendment until just recently. At what point does a reasonable search become unreasonable? Describe the role of probable cause in such efforts to give safety to our citizens? When, during this process, could the police officer infringe on individual rights? Describe why you support or don't support stop and frisk efforts by the police.
