    Re: SFBC and SFPD team up to catch bike thieves

    Seems like a bad movie waiting to happen. Mismatched charachters team up in an effort to catch the hopelessly down and out.

    Seriously though, I guess it’s a good start. Do they have data that there are organized gangs of criminals fencing bikes? Ancedotal evidence points to crackheads and methheads and non-drugged out knuckleheads.

    SFPD might also want to reclassify certain tools found in construction as “burgalry tools.” Some examples are loppers and Rigid pipe cutters. Both perform the same function as bolt cutters but they are small enough to fit in your pocket.

    Bike thieves often hang out in campers and trucks on Division between Harrison and Potrero.
