Incompetent Bike Thief Caught on Camera in NYC

What? Handlebars are attached with metal wires?!?

Now for something on the lighting side... This bike thief was caught on camera by the ANIMAL team in New York City. The hooded bandit displays his skills - or lack thereof - by trying to steal a handlebars from a locked bike on the Lower East Side (the video was shot at around 3PM on Attorney Street, between Houston and Stanton). Sadly, despite his incompetence, it looks like he gets away with it. Hopefully he gets caught the next time. Bike thieves deserve to burn in a very special circle of hell, along with people who speak at the theater (said in the voice of Shepherd Book).
