The Judge Dredd appproach to moped crime.

Met officer denies charges over man's scooter crash death

Another perfect son murdered by the fascist police. He was such a nice boy, and had definitely not been involved in mugging people.
Another copper forcing people to drive like lunatics outside of their abilities, how very dare they! If the parents just thought, their son (and the injured one) would still be alive if he hadn't decided to drive recklessly.

To be fair to the suspect, he had just arrived on earth from Mars, and was deaf and blind, so didn’t know: about stopping for police, who the police were, what what police cars are, and he couldn’t hear the siren or see the blue lights.

To make matters worse, the moped throttle was stuck on fully open and it didn't have any brakes.

Its a shame that just one of the variable above wasn’t missing........
That way the suspect could have just stopped when asked to!

There is also perhaps some irony that ARRSE also currently has a thread on the death of Harry Dunn. Killed while riding correctly, and the driver, who was driving on the wrong side of the road isn’t likely to ever to appear in any U.K. court.

I forgot to mention the kid who survived had 5 stolen mobiles in his pockets.

aaah yes...

Louis Kyriacou, 20, stole five smartphones - including three iPhones - in less than an hour in Hackney and Islington on the morning of February 9.
His vehicle refused to stop when hailed by police and a chase began which saw two police cars and the Police Air Service pursue Kyriacou and his accomplice for two miles.
The chase ended when the moped crashed into a van on Clapton Common, killing the driver Lewis Johnson, 18. Kyriacou, who was sitting behind him, was rushed to hospital with injuries but was later discharged.

Hackney & Islington?
They need to complain to their MPs.

When questioned I hope the copper doesn't admit to being a rocker
Oh I don't know.

'Sorry your honour, flash back to Brighton and my training kicked in.'

'A Vespa you say? Disgusting, no case to answer. Case dismissed!'

Serious head on for a moment

the cop was doing his job, and has been subject to four years so far of investigation, restricted duties, career and prospects on hold, and faces a trial almost five years after the incident in which he risks conviction and imprisonment

even if found not guilty, the circus bandwagon rolls on and the discipline case begins.

all the time his family and him are under intense stress and don’t know whether he will still have a career, job or even pension.

raises the question, why the hell should they bother. They have zero top cover and are the whipping boys and scapegoats for the apologists and lawyers of career criminals.

At least they had the respect of respectable, decent, law abiding members of the public. That changed in 2020, with their woke, two-faced policing methods. They are on their own now.

Reap what you sow, officer. Nobody rates you for getting down on one knee, or dancing in the street with a demented middle class enviro-mentalist.

I would be surprised if that description applied to that particular officer, the incident took place four years earlier and it is probable he had been on restricted duties for four years already .

this type of prosecution targets those officers who go hands on and are prepared to intervene.

policing has started to draw in an increasing number of “woke” fucktards, or is failing to weed them out now.

this prosecution will reinforce to the woke that the way to draw a salary safely ( by false pretences) is not to challenge, pursue or intervene and acquiesce at every opportunity.

Why bother trying to stop criminals when you can just become a 'Diversity Champion' and watch your career skyrocket.

On a bit of a tangent.
This thread is about whether the cops are responsible for the moped riders completely conscious and voluntary decision to break the law, and then break the law again when challenged by police.
For my own take on this, I hold the person with their hand on the moped throttle as 100% responsible for how and where the moped went.

We see cases like this every now and then, and cops are accused of being responsible for a criminals active choices in life, but the cases almost always revolve around deaths while driving.

If we think about the Westminster bridge attack or London Bridge attack, we saw suspects die as a result of their conscious and active life choices, and yet the media don’t gang up to blame the police for doing their job*

*Unless the suspect turns out to be a Brazilian electrician of course, but he wasn't killed after committing a crime like the others.
