Re Times Article/Bike Sting:

Anybody else as wombats outraged as I am that there was a bike sting on hard working delivery guys based on the EXCITING NEW NEWS that bikes get stolen in the EVill. Gosh - bikes are getting stolen in the EVILL?? Better tell the cops!

So hardworking peeps - likely supporting families, maybe without a Green Card or with an immigration status that will be jeopardized by the arrest (and maybe yes they do almost run my ass over going the wrong way in the fucking bike lane but separate issue) get SET UP by undercovers to what? lick YUNNY (with $1000 bikes that get stolen off the street: big surprise) balls??? Who ordered this stupid train to nowhere?

Notice in the article the bike delivery guy never reported his other bike stolen? Lesson: even if it's your bike, somehow YOU get arrested anyway.

@KairosKim - I agree with your comments 100%. I had missed the NY Times article about these bike stings. It's outrageous. I'm not even sure that Mayor Asshole Giuliani would have stooped so low.
