Bike-jackers pounce at petrol station

A motorcyclist has told of being attacked by three hooded and balaclava-wearing bike-jackers at a petrol station while staff failed to call the police. Dramatic CCTV images show the rider being dragged off his Yamaha R6 and kicked and punched to the ground by two assailants while the third attempts to start the bike. The victim, who was wearing his...

Scary, the know no fear scum like this because they no know in the unlikely event that they do get caught, nothing serious will happen to them.

Shame on the forecourt staff too, I dont believe for a minute they didnt know what was going on.

Few details missing then?

to be honest that looks more like a bunch of glue sniffers trying to steal a bike, not a gang, but then again, a good gang would prefer that, but i doubt they would risk doing it in front of clear cctv

another good reason to wear safety gear - punches hurt less, and yours hurt more, careful out there people - very few people would step in and help, i'd like to think i would be one of those, but i will not be bigheaded enough to say that with any confidence until it happens

and after saying that, i can say this without feeling like i am going to be acting superior, what the hell were the people in the other vehicles doing? watching? c*nts :)

the forecourt staff watch you like hawks in my experience, especially if you don't take your helmet off, i also don't beleive their answer, they just didn't care at the time, and they feel guilty when questioned about it.

can you buy brass knuckle armour instead of kevlar? :)

"MCN last weeks news. So what you are saying is that you don't need to buy MCN anymore as well just lift what we printed in the last weeks edition for our website......"

well yes - when running a printed paper that provides them with the funding they need, they must hold back from publishing information that makes buying their paper redundant or face a drop in sales, it's why the videos they release are just previews, and why they release videos of full reviews AFTER the new paper has come out, because then the information is no longer valuable to them. i have come to accept this, maybe you should too :)

Street Rats.....

What a shocker. More news of decent people getting robbed (or attempted in this case), by thieving street rats who roam the streets looking for their next victim. F@*k human rights when it comes to these c*~ts. They need to be given the beating of their lives and kept locked somewhere with the rest of their inbred friends and family. Always full of attitude when they are in a group but fail to have a back bone on their own.

As for the forecourt staff………….no doubt to scared to call the police for fear of having to show a visa or a valid passport!!

The Law is an Ass

I bet the biker in question will have to take the hit on his no claims because he was the victim of an attempted crime...typical. I bet if he had fought back with a little more success he'd now be up on charges of assault & battery. Theres no such thing as criminal justice anymore in this country. :(
