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.
