Stop and search has massively increased

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/law/2019/jul/07/england-sees-surge-in-stop-and-search-as-police-battle-knife-crime

Police attempts to tackle violent crime have brought about a sharp rise in the use of stop and search powers in some of England’s major forces, Guardian analysis reveals.

In findings that critics have described as deeply worrying, data from eight of the country’s biggest forces shows the scale of the use of stop and search, which more than doubled from 15,557 instances in March 2017 to 33,022 in March 2019.

In 2018, eight major forces recorded 214,240 stop and searches, a rise from 178,318 in 2017. The Metropolitan police, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands police were behind the surge.

Critics say stop-and-search powers disproportionately target black peopleand undermine community relations

 

Well, you know what, I think the police should completely withdraw and let them all kill each other. 

Damned if they do, damned if they don’t

The simple answer is to have a random number generator app on their phones that logs the stop and search.

So let's say 12 cars go by - you set the app to give you a number - 6. So you aim to stop the 6th car.

You do this in high crime areas.

My brother and his wife were stopped by the police near Windsor on Saturday as he was driving around trying to locate a hotel where a relatives wedding reception was planned for the following week. I assume this was because Prince Archie was being christened that morning and they were looking for likely extremists which presumably includes members of my family.

I can't be bothered reading the article. However it seems a storm in a teacup. In 2018 there were 214,000 stop and searches. How many black people are in the UK? Over a million? Even if all these searches were of black people it hardly seems like the average black person is getting stopped by the police that often.

Meanwhile, out in the none sjw, non virtue signalling real world we have this. 

https://www.mylondon.news/news/north-london-news/london-violence-8-people-stabbed-16544401

8 people stabbed and 3 shootings in London in just 24 hours

A 24-hour period of truly appalling violence in London saw multiple shootings and a horrific number of stabbings - with three of the victims being children aged under 12.

Many of the shocking attacks took place in broad daylight on Saturday, July 6 both on the streets and in homes across North, West and South London.

One victim died and an 11-year-old girl is in a critical condition in hospital - fortunately all other victims have been stabilised.

There's stuff missing from that article.

  • What is the right amount of stop and search, according to them/critics?
  • What is the outcome of the stop and searches?  Was there any convictions / stuff found but no conviction? 
  • Is there a community response?  Does the community (not the feral ones) like the policy?
  • In terms of race, if there are consequences of the stop and search (eg, criminal convictions), do the outcomes mirror the ethnic distribution of the stop and searches?  (ie, if the ethnicity of those jailed as a result of sns match the ethnicity of the sns then there's unlike to be a racial motivation, that is, the police were likely to be working to a 'suspicion of illegality' that was racially blind).

As oft stated no personal responsibility for individual events.

Must say in defence of The Boss, he was busy and otherwise engaged this weekend.

Prorities.

Let me just say again,  The Boss is not personally responsible for individual events in his our capital.

In anycase he was busy and otherwise engaged this weekend.

Priorities.

Publicity dosent just make itself you know.

Maybe not. Most people have sat nav and would have driven directly to where they want to go. If they drove passed the same plod a few times that is cause for suspicion.

I have only been stopped once. It was late at night and I drove in to a car park and out again just a minute later. Plod explained that that was suspicious, which is why they stopped me. I was fine with that.

Incidentally, I learned something on this occasion. In the mk 3 Escort Turbo there was a little pocket thing on the floor to the right of the driver's seat. A bit like an old aeroplane armrest ashtray. I discovered, thanks to plod, that this was actually the inspection hole for the vin number, not somewhere to stash your big boy condoms.

Good job I wasn't in to drugs!

Do they ever provide an ethnic breakdown of those % actually found carrying weapons ? 

I'm assuming no as well let's be honest - I think we all know what it would clearly show.

Should have told them not to wear jimjams and head-bags that day.

There's only ever an ethnic breakdown given when white people score the worst.

None of that matters and as you say they will never ever tell us as we already know the answer  ... Here from the express re the last three years and Sadiq Khan's priceless response (my bold) ...

'The report claims that knife crime has increased by 52 percent over the last three years, but Express.co.uk found this figure to be around a 49 percent increase from May 2016 to April 2019. 

Speaking to Sky News, Mr Khan said: “Oh it’s not less safe, that’s the first thing. We’ve made huge progress in the last three years.” 

and the worrying fact is that he will be elected again having made London safer, yes he has made London safer, more safe, not less safe.

Truely King Canute. The crimes rising and you want to about turn.

Wonder if stop and serach was required for the 14th anniversary of The London Bus bombings this weekend.

The Bosses twitter page has replies that are most un BBC like.

https://mobile.twitter.com/SadiqKhan/status/1147924085759979522

How strange. Just noticed on his front page, Khan for mayor 2020.

So he really is reaching out for the front pages and will be doing so for a while yet.

For once, I agree with the Gaurdian.

Stop n search is racist.

The police should just mount sniper posts on rooftops and shoot black and brown people with puffa jackets on.

Old fashioned I know but they were parked by the road looking at a map when plod drove up.

I think the point is the cops only bothered because there was a royal event. If it had been one of the plebs being christened they would not have been there.

Yes, but in 1998, Boris said hurty words about homosexuals.

That's why all this knife crime is really his fault!
