A stop is the intentional lawfuldetention of an individual for investigation purposes by the lawenforcement officers. As the author pointed out, preventing a personis likened seizure of that person thus demands the implementation ofthe Fourth Amendment intrusion law which requires a reasonablesuspicion to carry out the stop. The sources of information used tosupport the reasonable suspicion are however in a degree more watereddown compared to the probable cause proof. A stop is thereforecharacterized by communication between the officer and the suspect athand or investigating the suspect. It is also uniquely identifiedwith the installed perception on the mind of the suspect that he/sheis not free to leave, unlike the seizure issue. The stop shouldalways be supported by a reasonable suspicion as evident in theinformation obtained.
Albeit the fact that the stopduration is mostly considered to be 15 minutes in standard time, along stop is sometimes permitted. The conditions necessary for a longstop include first when the seizure serves the interest of thepublic. Secondly, the nature and scope of the intrusion are notextreme. And finally, thirdly, when the officers have moreinformation to justify the stop. The stop is usually carried out withthe aim of making an arrest.
The State Court System are anevolved colonial court systems that resolved the civil and penalcases and comprised of law courts, magistrate courts. On the other,hand the federal courts are enacted by the United States ConstitutionSection I which provides for an establishment of one supreme courtand many congress courts which may be established from time to timewhen the need arises. The state judicial systems had a general courtcombined with the legislative body to make laws, pass trials and makejudgments while federal legal regimes are mandated jurisdiction overthe cases bound by the constitution, federal laws and treaties undersection II to settle disputes between parties (Dooley & Patten2013).
In the current century, the statecourt system has had its structure consolidated by the American BarAssociation and the American Judicature whereas the federal courtsystems of today represent a culmination of congressional courtsmandated to expand the system to continue carrying out its duties ascontained in the constitution.
Inconclusion, a stop of a suspect should be based on a reasonablesuspicion proof as deduced from the information available. The stop,however, should be done within the standard duration of 15 minutes tosafeguard the public interest. Moreover, the state and federal courtsystems, however, different in structure are all aimed at resolvingdisputes between parties.
