No helmet motorbike theft suspect killed in Manchester
BBC News - No helmet motorbike theft suspect killed in Manchester
A man killed in a motorbike crash in south Manchester was a suspected thief who police previously refused to pursue because he was not wearing a helmet.
Bobby Carl Hodgkins was one of two men held after the raid on a showroom in Altrincham last month.
Officers witnessed the thieves escape but were told not to pursue - because they were not wearing helmets.
Mr Hodgkins died after a Kawasaki 450 he was riding collided with a van on Saturday. He was not wearing a helmet.

Good Heavens, I hope the van wasn't seriously damaged.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
