Useless Pigs - Again!

I'd say it's the police who are the scum, once again failiing to administer justice by doing what they do best  - fuck all. At least with criminals like these you know where you stand with them. And to think the pigs were/are complaing about their pensions and going on marches to protest. The fuckers don't deserve their pensions considering their piss poor approach to tackling real crime.

They (the pigs) need their wages and pensions cut until they've shown they're actually working for the benifit of their pay masters (the taxpayer). Until such time put them on minimum wage. ALL of them.

I agree

In the ideal world we shouldn't have to lock our valuables up to an insane degree. But this isn't an ideal world, and there are a lot of thieving fkers about. As I said before, I feel very sorry for this guy, but the reality is that 30 quids worth of disc lock may well have prevented this theft.

Seriously now, would YOU leave a bike like that on just a steering lock? I certainly wouldn't, and don't.

Seriously ... they took an hour It wasn't easy was it? and you still blame the victim. We all know that thieving scum are out there my question is why should we accept this as the norm ?

No, your right snev

we should all shirk any kind of responsibility toward safeguarding our belongings. I'm off down to my garage to leave the door wide open and stick the keys in the ignition. Grow up you fkn pleb!

 

Incidentally, it took the scrote all of 30 seconds to break the steering lock, at which point they could have pushed it away with the help of the scooter (right foot on the left footpeg of the bike, works surprisingly well) meaning that they could have had it away in mere minutes. The fact they chose to hot wire it on the spot suggests they felt confident of being able to do so thanks to the secluded position of the bike and lack of security. As I said before, a disc lock could well have prevented this.

Nobody is saying it's the owners fault, but the owner is blaming the police for not recovering his bike. It's a nasty case of double standards. Theft is a fact of life and we should all be aware of that and act accordingly. Last year I had a bike stolen. CDI box was bust so it wouldn't start. I'd been working on it in the driveway and didn't bother putting the lock on because it wouldn't start, furthermore the alarm wasn't on because the battery was disconnected. It was stolen. When it turned up I ended up paying £175 in recovery and storage costs, furthermore I needed a new seat lock and to carry out some bodywork repairs. I took those costs on the chin because I knew I'd been an idiot for not securing the bike properly. Sure the police didn't show up until almost three weeks after the incident to take a statement, but then I'm mature enough to accept that with limitted resources a stolen bike is probably not their first priority. And of course if the bike had been properly secured it probably wouldn't have been stolen as the thief would have passed it over to pick on am easier target.
