Just found out that I am cited in a *highly misleading* way in the #SewellReport. It uses my research to try to argue that stop and search is an effective way of reducing drug-related crime. I hope our abstract speaks for itself...

The intellectual dishonesty is astonishing.
Thanks to @AlexStevensKent for uncovering this amongst a litany of other misleading citations and distortions of evidence:
I'm sure my coauthors @pkquinton and @ben1971b will be just as surprised as I was. You can see how our research is misreported on page 160 here assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…
I should say that if the authors had a serious reason for interpreting our results differently, then maybe that would be a debate worth having. But it really looks like we've thrown in there to provide some kind of academic legitimacy for their predetermined political argument.
