The Judge Dredd appproach to moped crime.

Should the dead chap 'Josh' have show a little respect to others and their property? Maybe a little kindness in not trying to steal other's property...

No, because according to the Sun, the filthy criminal who's now been locked up at the taxpayer's expense was a bloody EU-loving foreigner, not a poor, socially-deprived and misunderstood local who was just tired from walking all the way to the shops to buy his mum some flowers, so thought he'd borrow the bike 'that was just left there, in plain sight and unsecured, honest guv' and without a tracking device. And he drives a shit motor.

'The Romanian national then gave chase in his Vauxhall Vectra.'

Police have not got the resources
however if the motorcycle owner loved his machine that much, he should have
A made bloody sure it was locked and chained up and out of sight
B fitted a tracking device, its so much easier to let them park it someplace, then drive over with a reception commitee and recover your property using reasonable force, you may also locate other stolen motorcycles

then C, run him over in a Vauxhall ?

Or kill the thieving sob. Take the smegging knee why not.
This is one of the few places my views align with the pillars of Islam.

Are you saying that the Romanian, who drove the Vectra, stole his own bike, gave chase to himself while driving the Vectra and riding the bike and then ran himself over?

Perhaps you should ask Joshua Slocum.

Accountability!, As Major Wade (retd.) once quoted “For every action there is a VECTRA with a mental bar steward willing to prove that there is an “equal and opposite re-action!”

What would the police have actually done had he turned up at the police station with the location of the bike on his tracker?

Given him a crime number for an insurance claim.
 
Now that the driver of the car has been convicted, does that mean that the 2@t who nicked his bike can now sue him for damages/injuries?

Probably.

Why the motorcyclist hasn't also been done for manslaughter is beyond me. As the 'driver' wasn't it his responsibility that the passenger was not wearing a helmet? And was carrying a push-bike at one point, thus constituting a dangerous load?

And then do him for nicking the bike in the first place, TWOCing, dangerous driving, etc.

I doubt the police will actually do anything though, as that would make them look bad on facebook.

If he hadn't purchased the motorcycle in the first place, he wouldn't be in all the bother
he is in now, definitely a wrong un,
I bet he locked is house doors at night as well

And warned him not to do anything silly like trying to get his own property back from the thieving bar steward. Cos in a properly policed society where the contract between law abiding citizens and the authorities is intact that’s the job of the police. Fortunate we live in just such a soci .......... nah never mind. Just claim it on your insurance.

Seems reasonable and proportionate in the circumstances.
