Re: I have no sympathy got his due reward

the fuzz need to review their policy on chasing non-helmet wearing bike thieves.  chase the blighters - they're breaking the law.  it they come unstuck, so be it.

Hmmm - so, if you nick a car, and the Old Bill are on your tail, make sure you call 999 - on your hand-held mobile - and explain that you're not wearing a set belt.  Roll eyes

This was a kid, he was 24 years old. Yes he stole something, but to say he got what was coming to him dying on a road in that way!
I agree with the previous poster in as much as i think the police should persue those without helmets.

Re: I have no sympathy got his due reward

it wasnt his first offence, £17000 the first time, was on bail for that when he did another and killed himself, never mind his age, and 24 is more than just a kid

Re: I have no sympathy got his due reward

I have no sympathy for the fella either.  Local toe-rag down here decided to steal my motorbike (costing me a job), he too while messing around on a motorbike crashed and died, I also feel no sympathy towards him.  Two less drains on the benefits system, police, insurance etc. that costs decent law-abiding citizens time and money.

This was a kid, he was 24 years old.

That "kid" was a quarter of a century old  (almost)....
Hardly an "innocent child"....  Roll eyes If he chose to break the law by stealing , and then break another law, regarding the wearing of helmet, and losing his life because he broke that law, then perhaps he did some good in the final moments of his life........
He gave his life..... to prove to other IDIOTS (whatever their age) that wearing a helmet, is a good idea....

No he was not a kid.
Anybody over the age of 16 is not a child.
If you want to break the law; you simply deserve to be punished.  If said punishment is the world deciding to end your life then so be it.

what?
Once you reach that ripe old age; you can get married (with consent) amongst other things - leave school, legally have kids for example.
