Stop and Frisk first came to be in 1968 after the supreme court of the United States ruled on the case of Terry v. Ohio. The court said that the work of police officer is dangerous and for this reason they need a flexible method to respond, which allow them to react base on information that they posses (DEL CARMEN, R. V. 2010). One stipulation that the courts made was that in order for an officer to stop question and frisk a person that officer needed to have at a minimum reasonable suspicion (DEL CARMEN, R. V. 2010). In 1994 former Mayor Rudy Giuliani hired William J. Bratton for Police Commissioner of New York City. That same year Bratton implemented compstat, which brought an increase of departments implementing stop and frisk (Naspretto, E., 2012).
I feel that he abused his power because the law was passed in one day and avoided people who opposed the legislation an opportunity to state their case. The main issue of New York’s strict gun control laws is its effectiveness. Do these laws keep guns out of the hands of criminals? These laws do not keep guns out of criminal’s hands because of the gun trafficking problem in New York. Illegal firearms from southern states are consistently used in New York crimes.
Ethical challenges are of universal span; many people including police officers are confronted with the opportunities for violating organizational rules and norms daily. Most of the stories about police officers in the media, including Cops and Criminal Minds, are about respectable police officers, but the intense 2001 movie Training Day is not. Alonzo Harris, a veteran police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), is training Jake Hoyt, a rookie officer on his first day with the narcotics unit. Harris’ character is an example of police officers’ potential for corruption. For instance, when Harris misuses the police authority and uses some fake arrest warrant seizing millions of dollars from a former LAPD veteran, now an informant

Amendment IV is still used in modern times. Most often, Amendment IV comes into play during criminal trials, because in the 1950s, Supreme Court ruled that any evidence obtained an an unlawful search are ineligible to appear in court. However, this is very controversial because the illegal evidence might prove that the criminal is guilty, but the defendant will escape without punishment since it cannot be used. In addition, Amendment IV, in modern years, has been challenged and discussed often because of many contentious search and seizure incidents involving government or police. Recently, the government has been gathering information on American citizens’ Internet and telephone use in an effort to intercept terrorist activity online and over
The Stonewall Riots took place after the New York Police raided a gay club, causing a disturbance among the community. The system of checks and balances is meant to even power within the Federal Government, but within we know it has its flaws. The judiciary has the least power of them all it is meant to evaluate laws that have been challenged. Executive carries out laws whereas the legislative makes laws. The formation of interest groups and the actions taken by the public greatly impact the power of the judiciary branch as well.
Since the show is based on reality and real police officers it has more of a stance on showing what police officers do and how they actually go about catching bad guys. While the show isn’t entirely accurate or reliable it does give some scene for what the job is like. The TV show does some false ideas that people tend to fall pray too. Idea such that African Americans are more likely to be arrested than white Americans and that all the people arrested end up charged with some kind of crime which isn’t the case. Since the goal of the show is to provide an idea for what cops do, one would think that the depiction of who is arrested and what goes on is accurate to at least some degree.
Have you ever been racially profiled ? Racial profiling is a very big national problem. Even though supposably the United States has entered a “post-racial era.” It happens every day in cities across the country. Law enforcement and private securities tend to target people of color mainly for embarrassing or scary reasons. They also search them even if they have no evidence that they have committed a crime.
Second problem with his argument is that it is unjustified. For example the law ‘Stop and Frisk’ “Judge Rules NYPD Stop and Frisk Practices Unconstitutional, Racially Discriminatory. August 12, 2013, New York – In a landmark decision, a federal court found the New York City Police Department 's highly controversial stop-and-frisk practices unconstitutional.

I feel that there is no escape from racial profiling especially in these tense times. Bob Herbert’s article, “Jim Crow Policing” Publishes in the New York Times on February 2, 2010, states that “The New York City Police Department needs to be restrained”, and I believe that his evidence shows this to be true. The author goes on showing statistic after statistic about the type of people that are stopped by the NYPD and more importantly their nationality. Bob Herbert is not writing this article to bash the NYPD, but to educate the people of America that although we may think racism and humiliation is gone, in New York it is still very prevalent. By appealing to your sense of logic with the statistic that “contraband, which usually means drugs, was found in only 1.6 percent of stops on black New Yorkers, 1.5 percent of Hispanics, but white New Yorkers stopped far less frequently were found with 2.2 percent of contraband on stops.” the evidence is undeniable.
Writs of Assistance Knock, knock you answer the door its police; they are searching for illegal goods. Good thing this is not real because it would make a lot of people mad. In the 1700’s this was actually a law that gave the police the right to search your house or business. It was called the Writs of Assistance. Who created it, what did they do, and how did it lead to the Revolutionary war.
