Topic 'Racism' alive and well in UK police force
Posted 21 Jan 2017 09:49

The police of course stop and search and question people of non-black skin tones, but black people are disproportionately likely to be stopped under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act. This is a power that gives police the right to stop and search someone without suspicion. I've just looked at the stats for Section 60 for the latest data I can find.

In 2012-13 the percentage of people stopped under S60 who were identified as white was 41% and for those identified as black it was 36%. For the years 2013-14 the same stats were white = 48% and black = 29%. (Source: UK Govt. - Police powers and procedures).

The percentage of the UK population that are identified as white is 87% and for black or black British it is 3%. (Source 2011 census) So without drilling down into regional variations it's obvious that black people are getting a raw deal under section 60.

I know in the story in my OP it's not the full story, but putting myself in the shoes of the man who was stopped, what would I have thought? I suspect he was pissed off and disgruntled that he, a person who works with the police on 'race' relations was being targeted in his view 'randomly' and because he was black. The fact that he was the wrong man does in my opinion point to bad policing at best.

I genuinely believe this guy was targeted because of his skin tone. I saw a documentary about it before Christmas, the police stop black people all the time for no reason. The guy in this incident was presumably feeling indignation as he was innocent. Yes, maybe he could have been more compliant but the police's response was outrageous.

I'm still shocked that the police seem to be getting away with the shooting of a young Asian guy on the M62. This, to me, was murder. How convenient that the cops WEREN'T wearing cameras. The media claim he was a 'bad boy stud' and don't even question the police's actions. Sickening.

I didn't hear about that. It does seems suspicious. I watched the Mark Duggan documentary last week. That was also very odd and suspicious. Even the IPCC investigator said it was strange. Definitely a cover up of some sort there

You couldn't make it up! I guess in the USA he would have been shot dead and not tasered but even so, this is shocking! If this passerby hadn't filmed the whole thing it makes you wonder whether this would have been covered up.

In 2008 I had just started uni. I have a lot more money now than I did then. I'm fortunate to come from a comfortably off family, so don't have any student loan to pay off. I think my parents would have a different perspective. Although I don't think their standard of living has changed, I do know they have lost literally thousands of pounds in interest on their savings since the credit crunch.

Topic christmas
Posted 12 Dec 2016 12:30

You don't have to be a Christian to celebrate Christmas but I think it helps.

When I was at college I spent a month doing half a ramadam with my friend, Aisha. I gave up beer, wine, chocolate and sex for a month and she invited me to her house for the festival of Eid. I felt like a bit of a cheat but her family didn't seem to mind, so you could say I celebrated ramadam without being a Muslim.

Not sure if that helps

Topic Should there be a maximum age at which a person can be put on trial?
Posted 07 Dec 2016 13:49



Jimmy Savile was never convicted for his crimes, either during his life or after. Due to his death, he never will be convicted. From what I understand, there has obviously been an investigation into Jimmy Savile (and then a more broad investigation, which was code names 'yewtree'), but no conviction of guilt.

A similar investigation would take place before taking anyone to court for any reason, and they would only then take someone to court if they believed there would be a 'reasonable chance of conviction' (or something like that, anyway) based on the investigation.

What the report essentially said was that there was enough evidence for there to be a trial, and even a list of the number of offences he would have been tried for, but no actual trial itself because Jimmy Savile couldn't have defended himself.

The same reason why Jimmy Savile couldn't get convicted is the same with Lord Janner. Even though he was alive, his mental condition was so bad that he would never have been able to have defended himself.

It's a tough one, because simply being accused of doing something awful isn't the same as doing something awful (look at what happened to Sir Cliff Richard), hence it being written in law that anyone has the right to face their accused and to defend themselves in a court of law. However, in some instances (like with Jimmy Savile), it means that obviously guilty people get away with a criminal conviction.

But...the law is right to be written the way it is, even if it would then unfortunately allow some to escape conviction.

Good points well made. I appreciate your input.

There is something inherently tragic about this case I think. Firstly that a man at the end of his life is facing this infamous and ignominious process. Secondly that our country has to understand why child abuse is so prevalent and thirdly that society has been so unable to tackle the issue to the point that victims have hitherto been unable to tackle the perpetrators. This man should have been brought to book years ago.

That his victims only came forward when he was congratulated for being a centenarian seems a particularly specious reason for seeking justice in my opinion. Savile et al needs to make our society face up to child abuse and not bury its head in the sand. These people have a dangerously deviant sexuality. It should be a major issue that the government debates in my opinion.

Posted 06 Dec 2016 09:49



Yes, Lord Janner did not stand trial because he was deemed to be incapable of understanding the charges and subsequent events surrounding his alleged crimes. Unless there are medical reasons that would impede a person getting a fair trial, such as dementia, then there should be no age limit. But let's remember that under law a person is deemed innocent until proven guilty. There has been quite a number of high profile cases over recent years where the press and public have acted as judge and jury only to find that the defendants have been found innocent.

I thought that in the Janner case, because there was strong evidence there was an option of 'a trial of the facts' but that was never pursued for some reason. I understand the reason his prosecution wasn't pursued, but doesn't the same thing apply? Jimmy Savile was effectively tried on the facts, albeit outside the courts, but Janner's alleged victims surely deserve the same amount of closure and justice as Savile's and Mr Clarke's? There should be consistency.

I also agree with you that people are effectively tried by the media, which means they're always tarnished even when they are innocent

Posted 05 Dec 2016 21:55

Just to be clear. I wasn't actually advocating that he shouldn't be on trial. It is just such an extreme case I wondered if there was circumstances, which are obvious owing to his age that he might not be fit. I totally agree that his victims deserve justice.

Interestingly, an MP was allowed to get away with not having a trial recently because he had dementia. He has since passed away. There have also been different standards and cover ups where there have been MP.

Posted 05 Dec 2016 13:53

Certainly not. If there were an age limit at which a person could be put on trail for crime, then once said persons reached that limit they could go out and commit all sorts of crime knowing full well they won't have to suffer the consequences of their crimes.
.

This is a good point!

I was shocked when I saw this. Maybe a bit controversial but wondered what others thought.

Anyway, this guy is 101 and he's in court for historic child abuse. One hundred and one! Isn't being accused of that, at his age punishment enough?! Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying any crime, particularly child abuse should ever be excused, but 101 years old? To put it into context, historic child abuse is like at epidemic proportions in the UK. Honestly, that's not an exaggeration. There was the Catholic priests, then a whole string of celebrities, and now it's football coaches. There's been hundreds of victims come forward in the last few days alone.

If a relative of mine was charged with that, heaven forfend, the shame alone would be terrible. I'm just not sure what purpose it serves to prosecute someone that old.
