At stop-sign-controlled intersections, do pedestrians always have the right-of-way, even if the vehicle had stopped first at the stop sign?

Yes. Vehicles always have to yield to pedestrians at any walkway location.

Let's just assume that the pedestrian on the street DOES have the right of way, even if she/she doesn't. That way the pedestrian will be less likely to be injured or killed.

Pedestrians always have the right of way! Never expect a pedestrian to obey vehicle traffic laws a person can run out in front of you at anytime and there is just no way the judge is going to let you get away with running into a person even if you say your honor he ran out in front of me. They still put you in prison for third-degree manslaughter. And you still end up doing 15 years in prison you have to expect that at any time a pedestrian or a bicycle Rider is going to suddenly cross your path!
And if you have to make a choice between hitting the pedestrian and running into the bushes or off of the road you better take what I just said in the mind do anything and everything that you have to do to avoid hitting a pedestrian. It's not just the pedestrians life it's your life too because if you hit him the chances are about 99% you're doing prison time!
