Anyone watching this on BBC?

The female maybe needs to know someone's prior convictions can't form grounds to search someone!

Really?? Not even contributory factors in suspicious circumstances? I'm not commenting in relation to the programme specifically as I've not seen it.

The fact someone say is a known shoplifter isn't enough. I think some people have been using these as grounds in the past without anything else

My guv basically said if we had a known burglar in an alleyway where he shouldn't ect he'd expect them to be turned over.

Some human rights groups are trying to get stop and search removed as its been abused in the past, eg people are being searched when they are given traffic process.

There's a higher emphasis in making stop and searches more positive...basically less dud searches more positive ones leading to arrest ect
