Safe Mode: On
British Police Allow Boat Theives To Escape Because They Werent Wearing Helmets And Might Get Hurt...

Soft-touch Britain is at it again with their weird take on tackling crime…


Police officers let a gang on quad bikes ride free after they stole a
kayak – as they abandoned a chase over fears for the health and safety
of the thieves.
After she saw the gang snatch her boat, owner Rebecca Jones and her
boyfriend Mark Skirrow called police and ran off tracking the thieves
across fields in South Yorkshire.
Within minutes, police arrived on the scene in Harlington, near
Mexborough, so Miss Jones and Mr Skirrow let them take over the pursuit.

But, minutes later, the pair watched in dismay as the officers gave
up and let the the thieves disappear with the £700 boat – before
admitting they had abandoned the pursuit because the gang were not
wearing crash helmets.


Miss Jones said: “The police were called immediately and they also
followed the gang and caught up with them. However, because of the
riders’ lack of helmets and erratic style of driving they had to call
off the pursuit because of health and safety concerns.”
The 28-year-old from Swinton, Rotherham, added: “My day was ruined.
My boat was stolen and there is nothing much I can do about it.”
A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “South Yorkshire Police
perform a risk assessment based on the circumstances of each incident.
On this occasion a pursuit was not initiated and alternative action was
taken in an attempt to apprehend the suspects.”

  • This pretty common in the UK.

    When the 7/7 bombs happened emergency responders were ordered not to rescue people on trains in tunnels. Luckily civilians and a few responders who disobeyed orders were able to assist those who could be saved - though not all.

    • @DEADBEEF. Yup. They wanted the body count to be higher. Police are not here to help you. Only to fine you and collect the body.

      Since you lack the cognitive skills to analyze what you read I will assist you. The thrives were on quads, you know w motorized 4 wheel vehicles. They stole a kayak. Not really a boat so much as an enclosed tiny canoe. So that's how they stole a boat and if it were on a small trailer then there you go. Either way, the cops would have caught them. And to hell with the criminal if he gets hurt in the commission of any crime.

  • This country is a soft touch now ruled by health and safety rules rather than common sense.A while back a young child was found laying face down in a 4ft deep lake and the fire brigade wouldnt go in to save him because none of them had received specialist water training.Basically they stood there and watched him die and waited for the people who could help.Yes,he might have been dead for sometime,but he might also have only just fallen in-they wouldnt have known eitherway so should have atleast More..
