In Chapter #8 we explored how the landmark case Terry v. Ohio affords sworn police officers the ability to stop/seize a person when they have reasonable articuable suspicion that a crime has occurred, or is about to occur, and that a particular person is responsible.
In 500 750 words answer the following:
1. Define reaonable articuable suspicion under Terry v. Ohio and explain how it is applied in proactive policing

3. Opinion Component: How can police continue to proactively stop suspects of crimes under Terry v. Ohio without harming the community in process? (To answer this read the Floyd ruling and highlight the differences between NYPD’s policy versus what Terry v. Ohio allows)
