I'm gobsmacked Bike Thieves I can remember a time when individuals were supposed to be responsible for their own actions. If some gobshite wishes to flee from the police on a stolen scooter without the benefit of a helmet then the choice was his and he should be ready to face the consequences. I don't know who I despise more the thief or the police who lacked the moral courage to do their job. I say this because to quote from the article "There is no blanket ban on calling off chases where a rider has no helmet,......" Tough on crime? I could puke. Blair's Britain a true case of the lunatics taking over the asylum.
