New York Police Engage In Mass-Scale Bike Thievery In Advance Of Obama Event
Someone sent this photo to the blog This Is FYF, which reports that “citing security concerns that bikes might be secret pipe bombs, NYPD officers clipped the locks of hundreds of bikes along Houston Street this morning in preparation for President Obama’s speech at Cooper Union. The bikes were unceremoniously put in the back of the truck. Onlookers were not given information as to what would become of the bikes.
Even given security concerns, there has to be a better way to handle this situation.
