Assignment 2: Stop and Frisk
The U.S. Constitution ensures the rights of citizens, particularly against police and government intrusion. As part of that, the Fourth Amendment protects an individual’s right to be free from illegal search and seizure. In communist and dictatorship governments, citizens are subject to police and government search, sometimes without cause and warning. However, citizens of the United States are assured that police and government officials must have cause before being personally searched, submitted to breathalyzers, or wire tapped.
