    Good for them 2 blokes that helped the Police out, I do hope that the guy on the moped wasn't hurt too badly, shame the car driver didn't accidentally run the little shit over. Oh crap I've just realised what I've just typed. shocking.gif
    Bound to have upset some one from the limp wristed liberals. Please accept my sincere apologises for any distress caused.

    That's good to see the scumbag getting caught, but what if he had a knife or maybe even a screwdriver used to break a lock. The police wear stab vests for a reason. I wouldn't be chasing after him, if anyone wanted my bike I'd be handing over the keys and then getting the police involved

    Appreciate your feelings and point of view about knives etc. but the reason so many get away with it is because joe public just stand there and do nothing most of the time. The police are too stretched to deal with every incident.

    I recently got badly beaten because I tried to stop another guy getting beaten up but I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

    I agree with you Andy, ( Not the part that saw you get hurt ) I've done it myself and received a Police commendations for my actions. Failing that, just kick em in the nuts and tell the old bill you slipped on dog shit.

    It is a tricky one, I understand. If they were running towards me then a push or stick my leg out is the most I would do, I wouldn't be following in and chasing them.

    I had my bike stolen and wish someone would have done something.
    If I were in that position I would have helped as I hate this kind of thing.

    That’s why in the event I am placed in a position of potential bodily harm I am prepared to let my good ol fashioned 1911 do the talking.

    Us Brits aren't allowed to have guns, although the criminals seem to have them in abundance. Don't let the liberal retards take away your rights to own guns. You'll end up like us.

    All I can say one less till some prat sitting in the dock gives them a reward and a pat on the back and possible holiday as they come from a deprived background or area. The other thing I say is they come for my bike they best be armed as I would not be handing over my keys I'd rather be dead. I worked for my belongings and they are mine and I will fight for that or serve time for defending whit is mine.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Ooh, that's a little contentious. The US is probably never going to solve it's gun problem now, whatever they do, but fortunately we're still a long way behind them in terms of gun violence. And that's largely down to us NOT having the right to own a gun. We have a gun problem in this country but it's tiny compared to theirs. Don't know what you mean when you say "You'll end up like us"? I think "us" are in a far better position than they are.

    Restores my faith in Britain, all we need do now is get the government to issue real deterrent sentencing and we stand a chance

    caught carrying s knife 5 years, murder someone 50 years no parole, fiddle with kids let the parents deal with it

    from what I can discern, USA in 2016 was about 45,000 bike thefts while the UK was about 10,000. However, the population of the USA is about 325 million, while the UK is about 60 million. Not much in it percent wise, but maybe having a firearm IS a deterrent to some scrote nicking your pride and joy?

    Bike theft is a big problem in this country..at least it is to us bike-owners. Most of the population don't own bikes or give much thought to bikers (except when we 'annoy' them on the road). We are a small minority and therefore our problems are by-and-large ignored. There are ways to reduce theft if governments and councils choose to spend the money (I'm talking about bike-specific secure parking for example). I think standing guard over your bike with a gun is probably not the answer and is likely to encourage bike-stealing scumbags to bring their own gun next time.
    Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with bike thieves being severely and seriously damaged if they get caught. I have been a victim of bike theft and wanted the culprit to suffer intense pain. The current laws, especially where youths are involved, are feeble but involving guns as part of the answer is plain daft.
    Anyone reading this who is seriously concerned about the lack of action taken by successive governments to fight bike theft should see what MAG are doing (which is a lot) and then join up.

    Don’t want to derail the thread, but just want to say that as former law enforcement and a legally carrying citizen the point of protecting yourself with a firearm is to NOT let them know you have it. If you have the forethought and time to brandish it, you had time to get away. If you carry on your hip like a cowboy you just mark yourself as first target. One more comment, I do love my 1911. From a standing position I can hit a 100 meter silhouette. It hits hard, no little 9mm pew, pew!
