Dealing With Cop Stops & Harassment

Here’s an informative video about dealing with cops, at least as pedestrians. The Terry v Ohio case from 1960’s that he mentions, says that police have to have a reasonable suspicion that crime happened or is about to happen, in order to detain someone. BTW, up until that decision they had to have a probable cause in order to detain. So if you don’t act suspiciously, like for example casing a bank, or they have no reason to believe that you might have committed a crime (like when you match a description of some criminal), then they have no right to detain you according to that Supreme Court discussion.
