Attorney Mick Henderson Discusses “Stop & Frisk”

Recently, H|W attorney Mick Henderson went on KMOX radio to discuss when “Stop & Frisk” can be used by law enforcement. He also discussed the “Stop & Frisk” policy that was ruled unconstitutional by a New York Federal District Judge. “Stop and Frisk” comes in to play when there isn’t probable cause to seize and search an individual.  First, in order to stop the person there must be a crime within a reasonable distance that occurred,  is occurring, or is about to occur. Second, after stopping the person, you can frisk them if there is a reasonable belief that the person is armed. See below for a link to the story.
