1.After reading Terry, what did you think of the officer’s observations of Terry and his associates? What did you think of his testimony? The officer’s observations were obviously spot-on to some sort of suspicious/criminal activity. He found concealed weapons confirming criminal activity. I think the officer used his experience to know to stick around and continue observing the men. His testimony was also perfect. He did a quick pat down of the men, and only continued searching the men that he found weapons on.2.In light of the Miranda decision, do you think police should have to warn citizens: a. that they do not have to consent to searches, b. that refusal to consent to a search cannot be used against them to obtain a warrant, and c. that they can withdraw consent to search at any time they wish.? Explain.Yes, I think police should have to warn citizens that they do not have to consent to searches and that refusal to consent to a search cannot be used against them, and that they can withdraw consent to search at any time.
