I saw what looked like an abandoned bike locked to a light post. Both wheels were gone, the drive train and any thing else moveable was rusted to a crisp, and all the wires were in a gordian state. Only thing is, it still had a rack on the back: something i need. Would it be fair to say that I could ethically just go and yoink it, or would it still be wrong. Obviously it's illegal, but is it right?
If it were in a dumpster, sure, free for all. But locked up to a municipal lamp post?
