Sunderland police and the frenzied search for Adam Johnson
NEWS is that the police have raided the Sunderland dressing room. No, not looking for mogodon or any other drugs that lead to malcoordination and apathy. They were seeking anything that can aid the investigation into claims that Adam Johnson had sexual contact with an underage girl.

Adam Johnson cops raid Sunderland dressing rooms
Officers have now scoured for evidence the club’s 49,000-capacity Stadium of Light and its 60-acre Academy of Light.
What are they looking for?
They were hunting for “second mobile phones and notes, anything that would help them, really”, it is claimed.
Raid. Hunting. Did the police arrive during a home match to be certain all the players would be there? Adam Johnson wasn’t – he’s been suspended by the club.
But the best line comes form a club insider, who confides in words quoted in the Sun and Mail:
“All staff were called into meetings and told in no uncertain terms that they were not to put anything on things like Twitter and Facebook and not to talk to the press about it under any circumstances.”
How did that work out, then?
