    Simple answer is to allow the police to give chase. If the thieves injure themselves then tough, if they injure someone else in either the theft or attempted escape then they should be prosecuted for that too.
    Maybe a dedicated team of motorcycle police and a few bait bikes would sort it.

    Bring back corporal punishment by putting them in stocks in town centres and then make them watch the public destruction of their all of their personal possessions; trainers, phones, X Boxes etc.

    Then charge the public a pound a go to dump rotten fruit and veg donated by supermarkets on them (giving them safety goggles to wear of course) and any money raised can go to compensate the victims. I’d buy that for a dollar!

    Then their pathetic mouldy cabbaged faces can go viral with a global Nelson Muntz “Ha Ha!” to name and shame them.

    I can only dream of a society that has balls and a sense of justice! Bah!

    My first thought was – we should be allowed to taser them.

    Second thought was – Could SLUK partner up with someone like Datatag, or similar?
    If the price could be brought down, and enough people have fully registered scooters (people could buy/sell parts using a database, to prove unstolen), fitted with transponders /trackers.
    Followed up with stickers (removable if needed) / marked up Hi-vis ect ect . Hopefully, then the thieving pratt’s will take our Scooters off the shopping list.

    The solution if there is one, has got to be tough.
    The police won’t give chase, so the little turds don’t care.
    Even if they do get caught, like one of those who attempted to scooter-jack my partners gts300 when she pulled up at a set of lights, went to court and the 15 year old has to pay her £50 over something like a year.
    It’s a joke. Six little bastards on 3 twist n go’s pushed her off her scoot and imo tried to kill her. She hung on to the bike and one of the attackers until a couple of people helped her.
    If I knew where they were I’d burn the little bastards. She won’t tell me the one kids name that was caught, for fear of what I would do to him. Can of petrol, box of matches…
    At the Ace cafe, there was a sign about setting up a little sting operation to catch a thief. It won’t stop the scooter-jacking but it would break a few heads. I think it’s a drop in the ocean, but if the kids thought they might get a beating, they might think twice.
    The police will do nothing and the courts do even less. Pain is the only thing these little S**ts will understand.
    Sorry about the aggressive tone but they hurt her badly, not just the physical injuries but the trauma it caused her.
    What would you do to protect the one you love, or get revenge on the ones who hurt her?
    I know what i’m prepared to do.

      Point blank. If you live in London, don’t ride a GTS 300 or a Tmax. Unless you want the aggro to go with it.

    Well said Colin, these plastic gangsters think everything is there for the taking and don’t mind who they upset or traumatise.

    The courts in this country are a joke, the people who make the laws are either so far removed from everyday society they don’t know whats going on in our streets or they just don’t care.. The law has to get tough to deal with scum like this and a softly softly approach is just an encouragement to the vermin.
    Despite a gov.org online petition to bring back hanging getting over 100,000 signitures the government think they know best and chose to ignore it.
