I know what you're saying but if the moped is stolen,and I believe it will be,the way in which some of these are taken is nothing short of violent/aggravated assault.Not petty at all.

Once again I agree and I can tell you this for nowt.Many of them do not have a choice in the matter.They are drawn in then forced to do what they do.Like it or not many of them are willing to kill each other for fear of them or their families being killed
