A Feminist Critique of Police Stops examines the parallels between stop-and-frisk policing and sexual harassment. Law professor Josephine Ross trained teenagers to protect their rights only to discover that our constitutional rights are a mirage. In reality, we can't say no when police seek to question or search us. Building on feminist principles, Ross demonstrates why the Supreme Court got it wrong when it allowed police to stop, search and sometimes strip-search people and call it consent. Using a wide range of sources - including her law students' experiences with police, news stories about Eric Garner and Sandra Bland, social science and the work of James Baldwin - Ross sheds new light on how police use stop-and-frisk to threaten and marginalize vulnerable communities. This book should be read by everyone interested in how Court-approved police stops sap everyone's constitutional rights and how this form of policing can be eliminated.
