This ^. The thief isn't really sacrificing the rear wheel, just the rim, tire and tube. The hub, cassette and spokes are undamaged and reusable. It would be totally easy to steal a bike locked with the 'Sheldon Brown method': battery powered reciprocating saw, two seconds. I really have to classify this as a low security option for low threat environments.
