Make your own call. It’s not as bad as the U-lock video, and I think the bike thief gets what’s coming to him. But then again, I’m not really one to watch dudes beating on people. Or beating off on people either, but that’s another video.
Go to the police and them wipe their hands with it? police care very little if you get hit by a car on your bike, do you think they care about attempted robbery of a bike?!
Beat him to a pulp and maybe end up in jail for assault?
tell him to stop it and then he walks around the corner and steals someone elses bike?
tie him to a tree and torture him!?!?
i think it looks stuid, not going to stop him, he’ll probably just stomp peoples wheels whenever he can now. i would have locked him to a bike rack, and texta’d ‘bike thief’ on his forehead. much more elegant
If I walked to my locked up bike to see a professional looking bike thief with a drill I couldn’t imagine that I’d do something too different to what was done in that video.
This isn’t some kid grabbing an unlocked bike from the train station, It’s a guy with a power drill and an agenda, clearly he does this frequently and aims to profit form your loss.
I just wouldn’t be stupid enough to start filming it.
If you were a messenger like the guy Alfred in the video, the bike might not only be your pride and joy, but also your source of income.
