Get a Club. And don’t ride a bike worth over $25, and everything will be hunky-dory. It’s your fault, victimes.

If there’s BART police, how come I never see them at the stations or on the trains? Seems like a good place for them.

BikeLink people! You’ll never have to worry about losing your bike again.

Sounds like the guy with the minivan knew who took the bike, why else have no prints taken.
As for BART police, they are out doing things they clearly aren’t trained for – like using firearms. So they shoot each other in apartment complexes.

” A search of the suspect by officers proved negative.”

What the bleep did they expect to find? The woman’s buttocks?

Disband BART pretend police now!

Maybe the buttock grabber is Italian. Apparently it is culturally excepted yo pinch a women’s backside as a compliment to her looks.
They may have tweaked that for tourists…offensive to many women.

Cable locks for bicycles appear to be useless.

dexx January 26, 2014 at 12:40 AM

$25 dollar bike? Lol. That’s realistic. Maybe my hold huffy from 3rd grade is worth close to that

Silva January 26, 2014 at 6:51 AM

I guess it was more acceptable here too once apon a time, as I can still remember a few incedents of it myself. Back in the day it was laughed off if you complained or tried reporting it. Maybe some men still don’t know what a turn off it is. Or he was pretty old.

Silva January 26, 2014 at 7:35 AM

@Elwood, I’m guessing that was a typo. Should have been “for” rather than “of”.

Jose January 26, 2014 at 7:44 AM


Yes, I’m sure the only possible explanation is that he knew who took it. He couldn’t possibly have declined fingerprinting because he was in a hurry to get home, knew it was an exercise in futility, and didn’t want a bunch of black dust all over his car.

Yup, your assumption makes MUCH more sense.
