'DON'T STEAL BIKES BRO!'

Bike Thief vs Street Justis from triple on Vimeo.

From Urban Cyclist via Prolly.

"Here's the story. I was having brunch on first ave and first street with a a couple of friends including Alfred .It was a pretty sunny day and a good there was a good amount of pedestrian traffic .Nothing unusual. Alfred went out to make a call and spotted someone looking over his bike. Nothing unusual ,he got a hot ass cannondale with hot ass wheels.the guy was average looking,had a helmet and a bag.looked like your average joe casual biker.Suddenly this dude gets on his knees and pulls out a drill.At first Alfred thought he wanted to steal his wheels,until he saw the drill.Is this what it has come out to?!people stealing bike with drills?Anyways as he was getting ready to drill the ulock,Alfred comes in the restaurant and yells,!yooooo someones trying to steal my bike,lets go get him.and let me tell you this ass hole tried stealing the wrong bike.first it was a bike messengers bike and second it was Alfred's bike and the motherFkr got a temper sometimes.so we roll out to this dude and start pounding him.my first instinct was to get my U lock and bang on him,but my bike was already locked up so , we bumbrushed this dude and started pounding him.Everybody is watching and wondering why this dude is being plumeted ,but at that point we don't give a fuck.we had to make sure this asshole dosen't do it again.me personal i have had 2 bikes stolen,in like a month apart.fuck that shit.he did't even look like a bike thief!so while pounding him i reach out to put my phone in my pocket and realized i had a camera on my wait.i pulled it out and captured the second half of the beating!

Sorry it's so hard to read, but you get the idea."

How fuckin lame was that. Ok sure the guy is a fuckin thief and deserved gettin checked, but beating on him in group and filmint it and postin it on the internet. That is seriously LAME. The person whos bike was getting stolen should've stepped to him and thats that. Fuck filming and postin a fight. what are you fifteen..

jus sayin.

I'm personally against violence of any type in any context but posting this professional bike thief's face on the Interwebs serves him just right here.

lol, ." I was having brunch on first ave and first street with a a couple of friends including Alfred"

you have brunch with "Alfred" who is this "alfred" you speak of?

3 vs. 1 is lame, however, a thief is a thief. it's one thing if bike thief was just some guy heckling the one guy for wearing spandex shorts. in that instance, i would definately agree it's between the two to fight it out, if violence is necessary. but that wasn't the situation. he was stealing the man's mode of transportation and income. he has probably stolen bikes from several other owners. i say, the two other guys beating on him were a fair representation of the unknown and unspoken for bike owners. aka, "fuck that dude." that's my two cents.

yo why the hate with posting the video? the dude deserves what got to him. Let this be a lesson to other bike thieves. You steal bikes and get caught you get smashed by the owner. Personally if I was in the same situation. I would tie his hands up to a street pole, bash his head open with my lock and pull down his pants before I leave. Don't steal bikes.

did bikers turn into total idiots now ? what's up with that free violence ?
pretty sad to see that idiots encourage and support this kind of behaviour

sorry, but those three idiots beating up that guy are fucking retarded and are shame for any who is passionate about bikes

i hope that you sir, who is running this blog, put this video up to expose the cretinism of those three

and i agree with lamee
"Fuck filming and postin a fight. what are you fifteen.."

anyone who has any issues with the retaliation that these 3 guys took against a fucking bike thief, i would love to know where you live because it must be utopia. if you have ever had your bike or anything from it stolen you would know that the first thing that goes across your mind is "KILLLLLL!". i would love to know what it feels like to have the privilege to stand passively by while someone takes your shit, knowing you have the income/means to replace it.

i don't think killing someone for stealing my bike would cross my mind in any situation.
what a corrupted mind must one have.

to be honest, this already happened to me, but i didn't freak out and beat someone up. i couldn't blame them because they were in a much worse situation than i was.

it doesn't solve anything, maybe it just makes you feel tougher by beating someone up

i guess i better stay anonymous, to avoid any threats by you

I agree that the dude should have gotten his ass kicked. It doesn't matter that he was whipped by a few dudes. For those of you who speak about it being weak that they ganged him, I would agree if it was a fight on equal terms. You fail to realize that a theif doesn't get to have a "fair fight". He is a slime ball and this is justice in pure form. He walked away a bit bruised and scared no doubt. They weren't hyper violent. He will think twice before he does it again. I second the previous comment that if you have enough disposible income to replace a bike, then you may not have the same emotional reaction to this crime. If someone steals your sole mode of transport it can really disrupt your life. Punk got what he deserved.

i have had shit stolen, and i definitely don't have the means to replace what gets jacked.

i have caught thieves in the act, gotten mad and scared them off. one girl bitching out an able bodied man who should be working to get what he wants is a fair fight i would say.

i don't know that i have a problem with you posting the situation on the internet, but two guys hitting one?

those odds just turned my reaction from, "shit yeah!" to "weak"

and i'm not going anonymous. this is how we do it in canada. a spade is a spade.

you faggot! punching him was easy, punch your mum, that´s a challenge.

I think these guys might be on to something. Not that I recommend people get out and put knuckles to face but more importantly start filming and photographing these fuckers and post them on a sight for everyone to see. Most of these dirtbags thrive on anonymity to get away with it so take it away from them by filming an posting them. By the way stop buying bikes on craigslist from these guys and stop buying used bikes from shady bike shops.
