Chase them.
Their decision. Their problem (the thieves).

Yes - like the stupid welsh quad riding thieves who got hit by the train. I feel so sorry for the driver in that case because he was coming up behind them and could see it coming but do nothing

Now we all know all the lil scum bags will be going ahhha no lid and cops will let us go ....should have chased them till they crashed and so what if they end up brain damaged nobody would know the difference ....they get killed who gives a f*ck one less scum bag that we need to pay for in jail .....chase them.

Does that mean if yer not wearing your seat belt in your car and decide to run they will let you go as you are not properly restrained inside the vehicle...

How also will that go if the police decide not to chase and you lose yer bike ....

can you claim the cops for losing the bike ..

Will yer insurance pay out ....or will they decide that you need to take it up with the police....

Can open worms every where .....

I've invented the perfect crime.

Rob bank

Ride away on pushbike with no helmet.

Wear Burka

No reg plate and no piccies of me.

They cant chase me 'cos that would endanger me.

Cant grab me 'cos that would be racist.

been policy for years not to chase bike riders who are not wearing helmets, however this should not stop them from using common sense and a mobile phone or radio to say which way they are heading and stopping them later.

Could you imagine how outraged we would be if the police HAD chased them, one of them had come off, suffered (arguably more?!?!) brain damage and sued the GMP?

In this fucked up legal system we have, that is exactly what would have happened.

The Bike shop owner would have ended up in a lengthy legal wrangle as to his liability toward the roadworthiness of the bikes.

These days the law biding citizen has his hands tied by the criminal and the law sees that as fair!

Spot on, Buster. It's bloody annoying this litigious society we have inherited.

Most knee jerk reactions that the previous administration imposed over the last 13 years didn't do jack shit to the criminal. The law abiding citizen got shafted every time.
