The scooter or motorcycle has become the weapon of choice for young thugs who are able to steal them with ease and commit often violent assaults and get away using the stolen bike. The police have recently tried to use 'tactical consent' but there are three officers under investigation for knocking them off to stop them getting away. They have no other way of dealing with them.

I have been riding motorcycles for many years and without question, there are more and more of these people around because to date there has been little  the law can do to stop them. They will not go away and there will be more of them if the Police are left with no way of stopping them.

Prosecuting Police Officers for doing the level best to stop them is madness - please sign.

Text from online newspaper:

PC Sutton's crash with the teenager is not thought to have left the teenager seriously hurt. He faces a disciplinary panel today despite the Met advocating the tactic, also called 'tactical contact', which officers say is not protected under the law.It is one of three cases that will be investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Prime Minister Theresa May has said that the tactic is 'right' but the watchdog is pursuing gross misconduct proceedings. If PC Sutton is found to have engaged in gross misconduct then he could be sacked.  

Chairman of the Met Police Federation Ken Marsh said: 'What message does this case send? 'We believe this officer acted within guidelines, but is being fed to the wolves. It’s not right.'
