I ws wondering what the do's and donts of witnessing bike theft. Can you assault the guy and take his bag of tools and ****? Or do you have to call the cops first and somehow prevent the guy from leaving without getting beat up?seems like alot of ppl dont give a **** and just let the guy do what they do. Even security guards. My beater bike got stolen a few weeks ago and a friend saw some random dude riding it in her block. In that situation, if I see him, can I clothesline him and take my bike back or will I face the hammer of the law? I'm guessing I should just follow him to his house and call the cops. What are your experiences with bikethefts that involved the police? Thanks.
