Make sure you check your bike locker before putting your bike in it...

so I found out that maybe I shouldn't be using this bike locker I was using....

Is it broken or is there a big flaw in the design?

Design flaw with the modification. There's supposed to be a lock in the center of the handle,but they put a hasp over it so you can use your own padlock. We had something like this at my one workplace,only they used two loops and you put a U lock through them. A wide U lock worked fine,but a narrower one would let you pop open the door like in that video.

Locks and lockers only deter the mostly honest if someone wants your bike they will find a way..
