A 17 year old black teenager in London says he’s been stopped-and-searched without cause fifty times since he was 14, and that on a number of occasions this has included bullshit charges (later dropped), wild accusations, strip searches, and detention in police cells. None of these stops has led to a conviction.

The last time he ended up in court with PC John Lovegrove accusing the teenager of assaulting him during a stop-and-search. The case fell apart when CCTV footage showed no such thing happened.
