This article was hard to follow!!
-FOURTH AMENDMENT prohibits unreasonablesearches and seizures and requires anywarrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.
-From the article I could defer that there can be many ways a police officer can justify his reasons for a search. 
-The Supreme Court is rather loose on it's definite meaning. A police officer doesn't have to tell somebody that they can resist a search by a police officer? Hmmm.... A person should be aware of these things by the people enforcing the law.
-This article emphasizes that a police officer can still enforce based on race pretty easily.
-Reasonable suspicion can be no more then a hunch and less then a probable cause.
-high crime areas play roles in reasons
-fourth amendment applies even when chased
-race is taken into account when enforcing immigration laws
-courts rely on police judgement
After reading through a second time, taking notes meanwhile, and reading paragraph by paragraph, the article became clear to e and easy to follow.
