Watch Undercover Cops Knock Off Unsuspecting Moped Riders

Police in the United Kingdom surprised a pair of moped riders in Manchester earlier this year, thanks to some very sneaky, undercover officers.

Dashcam footage depicts two moped riders, and one passenger, riding dangerously on local roads. As they pull up at a red light and begin to converse, a pair of police officers riding unmarked motorcycles and plain clothes come into view, cutting off the moped riders before they can make a hasty escape.

One of the moped riders immediately jumps from his scooter and runs to the other side of the ride. Despite being requested to return to the scene by a marked police officer on a motorbike, the man fails to return and the officer gives chase.

We bet this was a rude surprise for the moped riders.

It remains to be seen if the moped riders were stopped solely because of how they were riding or if the officers suspected they were thieves.

Nonetheless, the emergence of the footage has prompted calls from people across the UK, particularly in London, that the police should use similar tactics to stop scooter and motorcycle thiefs in the nation’s capital.

In recent years, there have been dozens of cases of ruthless thugs riding mopeds throughout London. They frequently pull up next to motorcylists at traffic lights, threaten them, and steal their bikes.

The Daily Mail reports that London police dealt with 430 crimes using mopeds per week during the year from June 2016 to June 2017. Many of the thiefs often wear masks to conceal their identities.

    SURPRISE COCKBAGS!

    F**king scums.

    This is so good to see. The UK is sick to death not only these thieving [insert the most inappropriate expletive here], but the soft way they’re treated. Bring it on, deal with them the only way they seem to understand, maim a few in the process, but most of all don’t stop until the message gets through.
    Oh, and please Officer Plod, don’t listen to the leftards. Just do your job and be encouraged by the fact that a great majority of people applaud your actions.

  • sidewaysspin

    They have to treat them like the somali pirates they are.

  • n2tattoos

    yeah, no. unless there is absolute proof they’re criminals, there was no reason to damage private property. i’d be suing these wanker cops.

    • LeStori

      Yeah and I suppose you are one of the thieving Moped riders running around stabbing people in the UK as well?

      Only a waste-of-space degenerate would defend these vermin. There are two people on the moped with the L Plate on the back, which is technically illegal. The Police should be mowing them down in SUVs rather than putting themselves at risk from acid attacks, stabbings and make-shift weapons.

  • Awesome!

  • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

    Police brutality? Maybe you should experience the violence that these moped-riding scum inflict on innocent hard-working people. They deserve everything they get.

    • Jay

      Even the innocent ones?

      • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

        In London alone there’s been well over 20,000 moped-related crimes in 2017 and the numbers for 2018 will be even higher. The media here are providing interactive maps showing the problems area by area.

        It is very easy to see who is riding around illegally and who the police should target – they really stand out for a number of reasons. Usually the licence plate has been removed, or there are people with balaclavas instead of helmets, or that there are two people riding on a moped with an learner-plate. It’s so easy to see most of the time even an ordinary member of the public can tell.

        You go to Church and pray for the “innocents”, meanwhile the police will try to clean up the streets to stop London turning into Chicago.

  • Knotmyrealname

    No better news than seeing this filth being treated in the only way they understand.

  • Knotmyrealname

    These criminals have no shame or conscience. It’s less than they deserve. You won’t find many NORMAL people thinking that this is heavy handed.
