Bicycle thief vigilantes

Alfred locks his Cannondale up outside the cafe where he’s eating. He sees a guy pull out a drill and start drilling out his u lock! Alfred and his friends run out and this is what happens [some language and violence].

    Re. the first comment, obviously the thief. The bike is the courier's livelihood, not just a posession. They let him off really easy, too.If the police don't enforce the law (and many jurisdictions don't even investigate bike theft), the state has violated the social contract and forefeits its authority. Then vigilante justisce is a moral right.

    The bike thief got what he deserved and got off kind of easy really. As others have noted, this wasn't just a bike for the owner, this was how he did his job and earned a living. Bike thieves suck and I wouldn't mind a few being made an example of to discourage others.

    @Curtis — I've replaced the video with another (in case you have't already found it yourself elsewhere)
