I hate theives. They should be shot on the spot!
I remember being at Orlando in 1996, I think, when a couple of thieves made off with two bikes and were just about to get away when suddenly a huge, rowdy crowd formed, chased them down and physically pulled them off the bikes... the police had to intervene to keep the two guys from getting a good beat down...
I also remember a kid named Nick that I raced with on Velocity in 1988... His Phase II cruiser got stolen and we heard where it was... I went with Nick to the home where it was and we took it away from the kids who had it... anyway, their dad was a local school principal and wanted the police to arrest me for taking Nick's stolen bike away from his kids... because, as he stated, his kids were not thieves... I told him to go ahead and call the police, that they would sort out the thieves from the rest of us when they got there!
I hope he gets his bike back.
