Everyone in Britain is loving the police’s latest PR move: ramming criminals as they try to escape on mopeds — then posting the video footage on social media.
Here’s a sample of some of the responses on Twitter:
Chief Inspector Jim Corbett: “To mitigate risk to the public & also offenders, we use a range of tactics including tactical contact. There has been a significant reduction in motorcycle & scooter crime with a decrease of 10,974 offences to date this year in comparison to 2017” pic.twitter.com/w1JE86WVkS

I have zero sympathy for #moped thieves . Too soft on criminals these days . They know the score now, so it’s on them if they continue to be little shits . 😒
