Terry

In Terry v. Ohio, the United States Supreme Court held that the police practice of 'stopping and frisking' a suspect in public without probable cause does not violate the 4th Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures as long as an officer has a "reasonable suspicion" that the suspect may be committing a crime, has committed a crime, or is planning to commit a crime, and the suspect "may be armed and dangerous.
