  1. New Detective series starts tomorrow on Alibi at 9.00pm. Starring Martin Compston it is set in Dundee and looks decent. As a Dundonian living away I'll be watching to see how the home town is looking. https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2019-09-27/traces-alibi-trailer/ Sky 132 Virgin 126 BT 312 Talk Tal 312
  2. http://rt.com/uk/174384-scottish-police-stop-seach/ The Scottish Police Authority carried out a report which found that Scottish police carry out 9 times more stop and searches than police in New York. This was left out of the report as it was deemed an irrelevant fact but the report did acknowledge it's comparison with London police where Scottish police carry out three times as many stop and searches. Figures show a 400% rise in searches in some parts, including Fife (shock! horror!) and also the number of children under the age of criminality being searched illegally has seen a spike. A total of 250,000 hours of police time is taken up carrying out searches in Scotland Here's a link to the report - http://www.spa.police.uk/assets/126884/230479/scrutinytaskgroupreport A quick look at the recommendations and you'll see that they're looking at "targeting the right people at the right time" to change these stats. I'd like to know what criteria someone would need to meet to be deemed the right target and what a good time would be. In Dumbarton, me and my friends have been searched (one of my friends is certainly targeted) on numerous occasions for the simple crime of walking out of a close. "Where have you been tonight?", "Just in our mates house", "cool, we're just going to give you a wee search, okay?". My mate mentioned above has been caught with a small amount of cannabis (less than £10 worth) in the past, as have I and I can't help but think that as soon as we're recognised by the police they see it as a quick couple of £75 (at least) fines. It seems as well that the police don't even really need a reason, they just have to be suspicious that you're up to/hiding something, which if they've caught us with cannabis once would give them reason to think we've got it again. I think that's bullshit. So aye, my whinging aside, oor cops love to give a good frisking, is this the right way of doing things or is it a quick money making exercise?
