    I hope with the clear view of the main gunman's face. They catch the criminal soon.

    Yeah, It was kinda nice of the gunman to provide such a good closeup.

    But it's not surprising. Bicycles are getting more expensive and folks are more serious about keeping them secure. So it's not surprising that there's a mode shift from bike theft to bike jacking. This would parallel the dramatic rise in car jackings as auto ignition security improved over the last decade or so.

    BTW- I gather this was HELMET CAM, and I'm surprised that after taking a good close look at the camera the robber didn't think to take it away. But then again, nobody says criminals are smart.

    Checking the weather report in the link was cool, I had no idea it snowed in South Africa.
    We've got no fear, no doubt, all in balls out

    I wonder how well the video will play in court.

    I would be extremely worried if I were that MTB'er considering they may not get all that much time and quite possibly have a vendetta after release. Time to relocate?
