Nice, France, behind the scenes (French, auto generated subs)

Attacks on tourists in traffic, tactics they say originate from Italy.

Sorry, I just can't take "Moped Gang" seriously.

Not much different from dirt bike gangs in the US, I would think. The only one I've witnessed personally was in downtown Philadelphia, although Boston has had issues with them too.

Apparently Scotland Yard have had it with these guys and are taking the very American approach of hitting them with the patrol car. (Video at the link)

Scotland Yard released a compilation video of the criminals being wiped out by the police. Apparently a tactic used by the criminals is to ditch their helmets so the police are more wary of turning them into vegetables. The police have warned them that doing so will no longer protect them and the police will apprehend them anyway. Apparently vegetables are far less likely to threaten people with running grinders.

For the police, there is not much more they can do to stop them. This of course will improve things only up to a certain level. But... at least it should reduce those who think they can do whatever they want with impunity.
