The commissioner is Marc Chennell aka Sparky, a motor stuntman. He wants attention for the huge numbers of motor theft in London. There are gangs active pulling motorcyclists off their engine and then drive away with the motor bike. The police do not do much because there is a no-chase policy, they do not chase them because this could endanger traffic, causing the gangs to be free. There have already been 2 protest rides in the city and petitions, but without result. Marc would like to pay extra attention to this issue by commissioning a mural.
