Abstract

In Terry v. Ohio (1968), the U.S. Supreme Court held that a police detective’s warrantless stops and frisks of three men whom he had watched acting suspiciously in front of commercial stores, leading the detective to conclude that the men were preparing to commit armed robbery, were not prohibited by the Constitution. The guns that the detective felt when he frisked two of the men and then seized were, the Court held, properly used as evidence against them.

The Terry case involved events that occurred on Halloween 1963 on two streets in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.

This map, and the corresponding key to marked locations, shows who was where as these events unfolded.

The map includes the alley/underpass, which curiously went unmentioned in the Terry litigation, that would have offered any would-be robber a low-visibility shortcut from the location of the stops and frisks back to the stores.
