Terry V. Ohio Pros And Cons

356 Words1 Page

The pros of Terry v. Ohio case, is that the police officer was doing there job. They are trying to prevent crime from happening, and keeping the community safe. A example of that in this case would be, where the officer stopped and frisked the three men and then found out that there was weapons on two of them. The two of them were convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and sentenced to three years in jail. Think about it, what if the police officer did not do his job and did not stop and frisked them. Things may have been bad and get out of control. Overall, one of the cons that I can think of is; the search for weapons without probable cause is an unreasonable search but at the end, you could've argued with that, due to police officer safety.
