Race, Police Trauma and the Fourth Amendment 
While recent highly-visible police killings have shed some light on the abuses of police power, defenders know all too well that police “brutality” is much broader than these horrible deaths. For many people of color, the daily, discriminatory and unnecessary encounters with police are overwhelming and traumatic. In this interactive workshop, defenders will learn how to incorporate research about racial bias, police trauma and stereotype threat into their search and seizure litigation. This workshop will focus on several contexts in which racial bias and trauma affect the Fourth Amendment analysis, including seizure, consent to search, reasonable articulable suspicion and probable cause, and the court’s “commonsense interpretation” of “suspect” behaviors. Drawing upon recent advances in cognitive science and psychology, this training attempts to bring the search and seizure doctrine into line with what we know about implicit racial bias and contemporary relationships between people of color and the police.
