This Troubles Me

Reading Time: 2 minutes In fact, this troubles me greatly. THREE years ago 5 Metropolitan Police Officers stopped a motor vehicle containing a couple of athletes. I have previously written about this here and here.   The actions of the officers were scrutinised TWICE by officers from Professional Standards and nothing untoward was identified. The then Commissioner, Dame Cressida Dick, […]

The data was well hidden, but it was there, so now it’s time to kick the Home Office (metaphorically) It was a monstrous sized

Reading Time: 2 minutes Before I begin, I need to make it clear that anything you read here only applies to those pesky drugs stops in the Metropolitan Police District, the rest of you can read on, or go back to sleep, up to you.

Stop And Search, The Work Of The Devil, Right?

Reading Time: 3 minutes I wasn’t intending to write anything at all this morning, but this headline from the Grauniad changed my mind. Met police criticised for multiple errors in stop and search practice Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.

Trial By Social Media Or RIP Without Fear Or Favour? You Decide

Reading Time: 4 minutes It can’t have escaped your notice that, over the past few months or longer, a practice has really taken off of filming the Police going about their lawful duties, and then circulating a heavily edited version of the footage on Social Media accompanied by some seriously biased comments. Is it Trial By Social Media Or

Without Fear Or Favour

Reading Time: 2 minutes Just a short post today, and then I’m off to take my meds and lie in a darkened room. Two athletes that I have never heard of got stopped by some TSG officers apparently due to the manner of driving of the car that they were in.  For whatever reason (I wasn’t there) it didn’t

Stop And Search – A Peace Offering (Of Sorts)

Reading Time: 4 minutes There has been much animated discussion on Twatter over the weekend on the thorny subject of Stop and Search. There have been suggestions (often ignored), anger, sarcasm and even personal abuse from both sides of the argument. I have given the subject much thought over the past 48 hours and I’m not sure the two

Are Theresa May’s Policies The Real Reason Behind Our Children Being Killed By Knives?

Reading Time: 3 minutes Yes……….in a word. Why do I say that so positively? This won’t take long, but here is why I think that. After their election victory in 2010 David Camoron appointed Theresa May as Home Secretary and she in turn engaged Tom Winsor to write an ‘Independent’ review on Policing, which came remarkably close to mirroring
