Stop and Frisk: Know Your Rights

A controversial but common type of law in the United States, “stop and frisk”, is legal in Texas if and only if law enforcement has reasonable suspicion that a person possesses a dangerous weapon and may be a threat. If reasonable suspicion exists, the officer may temporarily detain the person and conduct a pat down to search for a weapon.
