    For me, one of the main problems is the way the statistics are examined. I suspect that several variables are not taken into account which would add some valuable context. For example, proportion of people who are arrested and charged with a crime type, suspect descriptions, available population (who is on the streets when the stop occurs, this may be different at 3pm / 3am or the area that the stop occurred. Why don’t they do case studies as to why certain individuals were stopped? This would hold far more weight than courting headlines. Statistics can tell you anything that you want to see.

    It’s not worth doing stop search anymore. Its to much hassle. For starters every stop MUST be recorded on body worm camera but there is only a handful of cameras for a start, (many of them worn but PCSOs who don’t do stops) and if you do a search without one you have to account and justify why you didn’t record it on camera. Every stop search is scrutised and God forbid they accuse you of racism. So as a result the criminals can now walk around with weapons and contraband because bobbies don’t want to be discuplined or even, as some are pressing for, prosecuted.

    I’m sorry but the press are our friends. They would never misrepresent the police or anything an officer would say. Why would they do that?
