Ms MAY is still chewing on stop and search.

I have posted on this before 

Ms May has been reviewing a report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC)

HMIC are a dedicated collection of desk bound senior officers who spread their wisdom and experience to those still in the ring trying to win the fight.

She trots out the usual stats. percentage stops to arrest... disproportion on ethnicity of stops etc... 

In time we will receive 'unconsious bias awareness training'...whatever the *'f* that is.

Still I am sure it will keep a team somewhere in the Met employed for a few years

About as vague and woolly as the term 'institutional racism'

We could be stuck on she says...

Right, my wish list. Ms May if I ever find myself having to put hands in pockets again is

1. X ray vision
2.The gift of reading minds

Until such time as HMG can supply these to officers on the streets you will not get the stop and search results you want

Officers are already backing off this side of the work. Ms Mays pronouncements will just accelerate this.

We are indeed going to hell in a bucket and HMG have hold of the rope.
