Tar­get Mr Big in­stead

MCN - - LIFE ON BIKES - Andy Preston, via Face­book

The trou­ble with the po­lice tac­tics is that ram­ming bikes doesn’t help with the re­cov­ery of the ma­chine. In­stead the in­sur­ance will now be pay­ing out for a dam­aged bike (most likely writ­ten off) ver­sus a stolen bike. Prob­a­bly the same amount. And at the end of the day, this is po­lice vi­o­lence against some­one yet to be con­victed of a crime. Just like drug deal­ers, they need to be go­ing af­ter the peo­ple who the thieves are steal­ing for, or sell­ing to. Take those out, and the thefts will de­crease.
