    Baltimore's Dirt Bike Problem

    It's insane trying to avoid dirt bikes in Baltimore City. These bikers are completely out of control since the police are not allowed to chase them. The police have finally launch a task force to catch the out of control bikers.

    No love among these criminals.

    (Three riders died in crashes last year, police said. On Sunday, a man collided with a parked car, smashing his head through the driver's window. His friends scooped up his bike and left him there, Davis said. Police showed a picture of the man's blood splashed across the car.)

    It seems like the authorities efforts to accommodate these hoodlums with dedicated wheelie lanes and dirt bike parks might garner votes but will not solve the problem. With little or no safety gear worn by the perps I understand injuries would go hand in hand with police pursuit and interdiction. Mob disobedience is hard to deter, yet I can't help but think his would never be tolerated most places I've lived.

    Criminal behavior is still criminal behavior even when it takes an admirable skill to perform it. What makes it criminal is the risk to people who are not even involved, not to mention damage to property. Now add in crimes committed with guns and you have a very unadmirable group of criminals. They deserve whatever penalty is handed to them when they get caught.

    Reminds me of Newark. The same thing happens there. Mostly with ATVs.

    They steal them at gun point, I was in a cycle shop in Glen Burnie not far from Baltimore. I was talking to the owner a few years ago. He told me there was a large wooded area where he and his buddies use to ride. The blacks would show up, two up and steal the bikes from the white boys. He said they quit riding there because it was just to damn dangerous.

    What the Baltimore cops need are net guns.
