According to the good folks at Takeover LA there are some new tactics being deployed in the war against bike thieves. In days of old when someone was caught stealing a bike, especially the bike of a bike messenger the would be thief was usually beat to a pulp and sent home bleeding. Perhaps out of boredom with the same old routine, there are reports that the beatings have stopped and stripping has begun. That’s right, there are a few recent documented cases of people catching bike thieves in the act but instead of violence, they are simple taking everything from the thieves, EVERYTHING, and making them walk home in their underwear. Vigilante justice? Sure, but at least it’s amusing.
