Should we Implement Stop and Frisk? Is it Worth It?
President Elect Donald Trump has supported the implementation of "Stop and Frisk", especially in certain cities with the highest levels of violent crime. Is the policy consistent with the 4th, 5th and 14th amendments? Should this policy be implemented in San Francisco or in your own community? Why or why not?

Discuss the following questions in your analysis:
Is the policy constitutional (is it racial profiling, a violation of equal protection under the 14th amendment, or a violation of the 4th amendment protection against unreasonable searches)?
Has the policy made communities safer in cities where it was implemented? Is there evidence that it might reduce crime in our SF neighborhoods or is crime reduction a result of other factors?
Will the policy encourage SF Police officers to target people of color unfairly? Can it be implemented in a way that reduces crime, without discrimination?
NOTE: Use facts and evidence from the course reading materials and class discussions to back up your position.

Despite the much-publicized view that the policy has led to lowering crime, the stop and frisk program is unjustified. This is because it is not only against the American constitution but has also failed to make communities safer and that the police have been provided with a pathway for targeting people of color unfairly.
The stop and frisk policy is not warranted as it is against both the 14th and 4th Amendments to the American constitution. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution specifies that no state within its jurisdiction is to be denied the equal protection of the...
