I was just walking out of a restaurant with a couple friends this afternoon, on 100th and Broadway in Manhattan. A guy dressed in biking gear was coming running down the street, screaming, and then we saw another guy riding really fast down the street and round the corner. He was really screaming hysterically and running after the theif but it was obviously a lost cause. The theif had this big **** eating grin on his face as he sped round the corner and disappeared. I guess the owner had come out of a store or something just as the theif was finishing breaking his lock or somethnig, and _almost_ caught him.
I was really upset as i came home, even though it wasn't my bike and i didn't even know the guy... The smug look on the theif's face as he pedalled away with he bike owner running after him was so sickening.
