I think the moral compass of DC police is a little skewed. How about catching the folks who are stealing a citizens bike instead of setting people up for an immediate felony. I understand that they are nabbing scumbags, but this is still somehow wrong. On the other hand, why would anyone leave their bike unattended in the city? You might as well just hand it off to somebody.
Officers placed two unlocked bikes on the 600 block of H Street NE last week.
In less than an hour the bikes were stolen five times.
