Police need what they always have needed to stop & ask questions: a reasonable suspicion. Suspicion is not sufficient for an arrest. Suspicion develops with a total picture of information, circumstances, & experience. Police need clarification, & must be able to articulate what caused them to think something wasn't right. Probably cause is evidence driven, & is a reasonable belief 1) an offense has occurred, & 2) the person did it. That is arrestable. Stop & question vs.arrest for cause.
