For the Visual Communications Assessment

For the ACC 2305 and 2306 students: this is for the visual communications assessment. Below you'll see a variety of charts related to the police policy called "stop and frisk." We discussed it in class recently since it came up in the first presidential debate.

The policy allows police to search for weapons under certain circumstances - primarily anything related to the likelihood that a crime is about to take place. This raises 4th Amendment questions - since these searches are based on a looser standard than probable cause, equal protection issues - since police can use racial identity as a criteria for conducting a search, as well as simple questions about whether the policy is effective in reducing crime.

Below you'll see a handful of charts that display data regarding the policy. Look through them and see if you can find out what they are telling us about it. You can go in a variety of directions with this.
