Description

Recaps the events of the case and describes how "police, prosecutors, and others concerned with rising crime rates fear that the Supreme Court may ban or drastically curtail 'stop and frisk,' depriving police of an invaluable investigative tool." Also describes the NAACP brief in which expresses concern that "inhabitants of our inner cities, racial minorities and the underprivileged" will be targeted disproportionately by police.
