The Bicycle Theif
I’ve always been struck by the number of bikes I see downtown that have obviously had parts stolen off them.
This video was a bit of an eye opener for me. Two brothers in New York set out to find out exactly how easy it can be to steal a bicycle, using several gradually more visible methods, just to see if anyone would intervene. They found that most of the time, no one did. And while I’m sure that having a camera around probably skewed the results a bit, I still find it a little disturbing.
