Do not touch.

Do not even touch this Rollfast bicycle because it is stolen and it is illegal to touch it and if you do it again I will call the police and you will be arrested.

I didn't buy it there though and it's been there for 8 years and nobody's allowed to touch it even or they will get arrested.

How can you arrest anyone for something that's not there?

Let me guess, the police will be called and they will be arrested right? Do you dial 911, or find the long number for the police and call them directly?

It's a variant of a Rorschach test.

What you think isn't necessarily wrong, but certain thoughts might be cause for concern however.

Really don't like plastic bicycles. I like metal Sears Rollfast and bicycles.

Of course you don't want to touch it, that is the tetanus model.

I touched it a few days ago and I was threatened to get arrested. No joke. It is against the law to touch this bicycle.

Oh please. What "law" is broken by touching a rusty bicycle? I'm quite sure the local police have better things to do.

I have one of those pixilated thingees on my handlebars too. I get a lot of comments as well as queries about where others can buy them. Mine's custom made though.

The person who said I'm going to get arrested was NOT police, but they mentioned police. The police have far more important things to do.
