Nothing wroong with golf. I rather enjoy hacking away.Golf club.
He should be beaten to a pulp with a pick helve for being a member of a golfist organisation.
Thanks for the reply. My question, with respect, was for someone who understands to apply the law in section 1 of PACE 1984 to the facts above and explain whether the stop and search that the officer conducted was lawful.
The issue is centred around the grounds. Using an attitude test to shake the tree and see what falls out doesn't square with the relevant legislation and legal principles. Thanks again for all the replies and advice
Yep.To be clear, I entirely reject the idea that the attitude test is somehow ‘shaking the tree’. It isn’t, it’s simple good coppering. A constable might speak to 100 people over the course of a day, everything from ‘what’s the time’ to ‘evening all’ and ‘is this your car sir’ - the vast, vast majority of those interactions will be perfectly mundane, reasonable and ordinary - however if any one of them acts in an evasive, slippery or difficult manner it is right and proper that a constable asks himself “why is this person acting in such a manner upon being spoken to by the police?”. It quite literally is something to be suspicious about.
I've done nothing wrong, and have nothing to fear etc etc etc.
So why give it large and get mouthy?
I grew up in the SUS era and there were a lot of coppers that were d1cks as wellThe more fuss and stroppiness you indulge in with the police the more you deflect them from their duty of protecting law abiding people.
