Given the bike theft epidemic & the polices suspicions that one group are behind it, could I suggest they left a few bikes, loosely tied up, around stations etc.. with trackers on and then once the bike has been lifted they should be able to catch the guilty red handed.

"Police forces around the country are to deploy bait bikes after a series of successful pilot schemes throughout 2008 and 2009,"

That suggest the article was written in 2007 or earlier, and given the constantly bike thefts in Southend, I think its fair to say Essex Police do not use this tactic.

If the pilot schemes were in 2008 & 2009, how could the article have been written in 2007? Its clearly dated 2010 you numpty. You said they should, i said they do, you asked how i know, i showed you and youre still trying to argue. Just accept youre wrong for once you idiot.

I've probably been wrong 3 times out of 150. In fact you wont be able to come up with 3 times I have been wrong.

You cast doubt on almost every crime reported, almost every crime reported is not false, therefore statistically you cannot be right very often, ive heard no mention of a false crime reporting epidemic

I think you will find 1 in 38 reports leads to a conviction, mr google, so broadly speaking my excellent ratio is about bang on the money.

you silly fool, just because it doesnt lead to conviction, doesnt mean its a false allegation. If i punch you in the street but nobody saw, does that mean i never punched you and that you are a liar?

No, but if I was walking down the street during the day, the likelyhood of you punching me for no reason is very slim. But if I spat at you, swore at you, even stared at you, it would increase the probability of you hitting me. However when I went running to the police, its likely that I would leave any wrong doing / provocation on my part out of my version of events. IF I said, "yeah I was staring at him and called him a c unt" then he violently attacked me , that would be a different matter.
