can the police stop me and search me for no reason

The police can't stop you and search you in the street for no reason. However, the police can come up to you and they can talk to you. You can refuse to answer them or talk to them as long as they do not have reasonable suspicion that you committed a crime, or were about to commit a crime. If they had that reasonable suspicion, law enforcement could stop you and pat you down.
