The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. Through advocacy and outreach to targeted constituencies, The Leadership Conference works toward the goal of a more open and just society – an America as good as its ideals. The Leadership Conference is a 501 (c)(4) organization that engages in legislative advocacy.

=====================================

Stop-and-Frisks: Under the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Terry v. Ohio, 42 a stop must be based on a reasonable, articulable suspicion that a person is committing, is about to commit, or has committed a crime. Stop-and-frisk practices and policies must comply with the Fourth Amendment of the U.S Constitution.

A frisk is a brief pat down of the outer clothing, and must be based on a reasonable articulable suspicion that the person is armed and presents a danger to an officer during a lawful investigatory stop.
Unless an officer feels something that could be a weapon through the outer clothing, they cannot go inside a person’s pockets or under their hat or other clothing items during a frisk.

Searches:
To search people or cars, an officer must have probable cause to believe that they are concealing weapons, evidence, or contraband.
Except in cases of emergency, an officer must have a search warrant to search a home or building.

Strip searches and body cavity searches are allowed only when officers have probable cause to believe that someone is concealing weapons, evidence, or contraband in a way that cannot be detected using regular search methods.
Strip searches and visual cavity searches must be conducted in private by an officer of the same gender identity as the person being searched. Intrusive cavity searches must be conducted by a medical professional in a private area.

Consent Searches:
A person is entitled to refuse or withdraw consent to a frisk or search where an officer does not have a reasonable suspicion that they are concealing a weapon, evidence, or contraband, or probable cause to believe they are committing or have committed a crime.
Officers should inform people of their rights to refuse or revoke consent, and document an individual’s informed, voluntary consent before proceeding with a consent search.

Arrests: An arrest must be based on probable cause – a belief, based on specific facts, that would lead a reasonable officer to conclude that it is more likely than not that a person is breaking or has broken a criminal law.
Before questioning a person who is, or reasonably believes they are, under arrest, an officer must read their Miranda rights and document an informed voluntary waiver of their right to remain silent and to speak to an attorney.

CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS CALL FOR NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING; DEMAND FEDERAL ACTION TO REFORM POLICE
FIGHTING HATE & BIAS RESOURCES, JUSTICE REFORM NEWS, POLICING RESOURCES

===========================

NEW YORK (June 1, 2020) — The leaders of the nation’s leading civil rights and racial justice organizations have issued a joint statement in response to the unrest ravaging America’s cities. These leaders and their organizations are:

  • Melanie L. Campbell, President and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation
  • Kristen Clarke, President and Executive Director, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law
  • Vanita Gupta, President and CEO, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
  • Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
  • Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP
  • Marc H. Morial, President and CEO, National Urban League
  • Rev. Al Sharpton, Founder and President, National Action Network
Their statement is below:

“The tragic and senseless loss of Black lives to police-involved violence over the last several years — and the callous indifference to justice in response – should have been enough to persuade the nation of the need for dramatic change. The last several days have made it impossible to ignore.

“We call on the nation to join the civil rights community in observing a National Day of Mourning on Thursday, as George Floyd’s family prepares for the painful task of laying their loved one to rest. We will spend the day in reflection and prayer for racial reconciliation and an end to the violence that is ravaging the nation.

“Our communities, already saturated in grief over the COVID-19 pandemic, have been pushed to the brink by relentless police brutality and vigilante injustice. Now, white nationalists intent on stoking divisions and discrediting the racial justice movement have smashed their way into this cauldron of anguish and rage.

“There is only one way out of this crisis. The rift between the police and the communities they are sworn to protect can be healed only by a comprehensive and realistic plan for reform and accountability.

“The brutal killings of African Americans by police and vigilantes – as well as the appalling, inappropriate response by police to peaceful uprisings, highlight the need for comprehensive review and revision of police training procedures, hiring standards and use of force policies.

“We look forward to working closely with members of Congress on a bipartisan basis to advance these policies and other desperately-needed reform measures. We stand with impacted families and communities as they remember and mourn George Floyd, Sean Reed, Breonna Taylor and countless others. We cannot rest until we get true justice for African Americans and other marginalized communities who bear the brunt of police violence.”

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
