Obviously the police can't/won't do anything because of 'safety' concerns.

So it'll take a dedicated group of people to trap these little wankers and 'convince' them to change their ways.
After all its hard to steal bikes with broken legs/arms/etc

These are part of the collection of A-holes that give 2-wheel riders bad reputations and garner dangerous attitudes towards us.
As sad as it sounds I think only a bad crash, or worse are the only things that may changes their ways.

Hope someone is able to ID these riders.

No, these are not your bad riding youth. They are bike thieves who know that the police won't chase them because its not allowed. The police are only allowed to follow at a distance.
So these scumbags can get away easily.

As if you thought they couldn't sink any lower, you may have seen some little scumbags stole a bike adapted for a one-armed rider. A bike useless to anyone else, and his only way to get out and ride. It was found a day or two ago burnt out, trashed. A GoFundMe has been started to help him get back on 2 wheels, link here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-disabled-rider-replace-bike

Fuck the safety of these cretins, police need to earn their pay and sort out this epidemic.

I'm not a Texan. I'm sure pepper spray would go a long way or is that illegal too?

What do the police say you should do? Just let them take your shit?

All we can do is call them. Our laws make intervening difficult, if the pikeys get hurt they could try and claim it was assault. But an issue becoming more and more common is the fact they work in groups, using power tools to cut locks while the others stand about with hammers, knives etc. to stop anyone intervening. One guy even got acid thrown in his face while trying to stop someones bike getting nicked

Also worth noting it is not a priority in any manor to London police they just don't respond to it... for example look at this one...


All the time a guy was on the phone to the police who didn't dispatch and when they heard the bike was dropped they were like ho hum about it. Now if that was a high end sports car my god they are there in moments. Cos they know someone with a high-end sports car is gonna make a lot of trouble about police response times.

That’s really regrettable. Any way this kind of footage can be given to the local news outlet to highlight how 2-wheeled riders are preyed upon, and worse, ignored by the police?

Yeah highlighting the situation in the press might help with the police response but I doubt it. (Can't get any worse)

I still think it will need direct 'vigilante' action to make any difference.
Of course that involves risks but with biker gear for protection and anonymity I think its doable.
