Moped Crime in England

Seems I am to be the compliment to J. Kb’s posts today. Mom is not having a good day, so my mind is not quite here.

Moped gangs are a scary thing in the formerly Great Britain. Here is a video of several incidents, but I reckon the attack on the jewelry and watch store is memorable, specially how brazen they are in their display of weapons.

There is impunity with this crimes. It comes with equal parts of properly disguising themselves and the fact that the Brit police do not bother much with “unsolvable” property crime. And when comes to number-crunching time for end-of-year reports, they have no issue fudging the stats.  And this is a State who is fully disarmed, killed the right of self-defense and it has surpassed George Orwell’s nightmares of surveillance’s capabilities .

But fear not: If the Government finds anybody carrying a potato peeler, rest assured he will be arrested!

  1. Over on Rantburg, it was noticed years ago how frequently this happens in the average Londoner’s native Pakistan. They are called the “cycles of violence” because gunshots or acid throwing are typically part of it.

  2. two other contributing factors to these thugs using scooters:
    1: They are small and nimble; even moreso than Police motorcycles, and as such are able to escape through clogged London streets.
    2: Even if they were to hit open streets the police have been instructed NOT to chase scooter for fear of causing an accident and harming the riders!
