Why did Met Police strip-search so many children – and then lie about it?

Police: was it really necessary for them to strip-search so many children?

There cannot be a good explanation for this:

In 2021, the Met Police carried out 269 “More Thorough Searches that expose Intimate Parts” on children. It previously reported the number as 99.

Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley said last month the Met had “misused” the power.

The issue was recently scrutinised by Dame Rachel de Souza, the children’s commissioner for England.

She found that across the country, there were “systemic problems with transparency, scrutiny and non-compliance with guidelines when children were being strip-searched under stop-and-search powers”.

Pastor Lorraine Jones, CEO of the Dwayne Simpson Foundation, a Brixton-based organisation that aims to steer young people away from crime, called the misreported figures a “disgrace”.

She asked what kind of aftercare and compensation was given to such children and questioned how the Met could regain community trust over the issue of intimate searches of minors.

It can’t, as far as This Writer can see.

It tells us that the officers who carried out these searches may not be serious officials carrying out a duty, but are more likely to be a bunch of paedophiles who’ve put themselves in uniform to force youngsters to accept mistreatment that they otherwise would not have to.

Can anyone prove me wrong?

    The Met police is an institution that is as corrupt, seedy and morally fetid as its controllers and pay masters, this Tory government . The whole policing and justice is as bent as the politicians who protect it.

    Because with what the public is finding out about our police forces not just the Met. Our police forces are full of intimidating bullying thugs who are either criminals, perverts and podophiles.

    There is a problem when society finds it acceptable that strip searching children is a requirement. Why isn’t it a requirement that a judge must sign a warrant or whatever legal document before this is carried out? Surely this should be done by medical professionals at a hospital?
