The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution limits the power of the police to make arrests, search people and their property, and seize objects and contraband, such as illegal drugs or weapons. These limits are the bedrock of search and seizure law and are ultimately at the root of your right to privacy. Analyze the following case in preparation for a systematic approach to your synthesis of law and fact: Terry v. Ohio located at https://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/cgi-bin/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=392&invol=1 Write a legal Memorandum paper in which you: 1.Summarize five (5) key aspects of Terry v. Ohio. 2.Posit whether or not you believe law enforcement violated Terry and the other mens right to privacy which the Fourth Amendment guarantees. Justify your position. 3.Examine the dissenting opinion of Justice Douglas, as discussed in the case. Discuss the origins and importance of probable cause as it relates to law enforcements discretion to search Terrys car in this case. 4.Examine the two part test provided by the Court in Terry that first asks whether the officers action is justified at its inception; and second, asks whether it is reasonably related in scope to the circumstances which justified the interference in the first place.Discuss whether or not this test leaves officers with too much discretion when making a determination to stop an individual. Provide a rationale for your response. 5.Examine the Courts holding in Terry that provides that probable cause is based upon the totality of the circumstances. Review the factors that help shape the totality of circumstances, such as specialized knowledge of the officers, investigative inferences, personal observations of suspicious behavior, and information from other sources. Question whether these factors in question are too subjective to establish probable cause. Provide a rationale for your response. 6.Debate the validity of the Courts holding that whenever a police officer accosts an individual and restrains his freedom to walk away, he has seized that person with the meaning of the Fourth Amendment. Justify your response. What Awaits you: On-time delivery guarantee Masters and PhD-level writers Automatic plagiarism check 100% Privacy and Confidentiality High Quality custom-written papers
