This is a normal post So true,,
I live in amsterdam and have a few bikes (as you do here) now and again you come back to your bike to realise someone else has locked their bike to yours. It's happened to me a couple of times now and the last time I was really angry because I was late for work and had to just leave it.
After work I came back and it was still locked to another bike.
I went home and got my tools and took the other bike to pieces on the pavement right infront of everyone, more out of rage then getting the lock off it must be said. Many people just watched me in a furious state take the bike apart. One guy even challenged me and spoke to me for a while but did nothing.
After about 30 mins I finally got my bike free by cutting the lock off with an angle grinder and left the other bike in a pile on the floor ;)
Nothing happened apart from the pile stayed there for a few weeks as a warning to others not to do this again ;)

This is a normal post At least someone challenged you...
I have done the same a couple of times with people being dodgy round cars and bikes and not been stabbed...yet. I think people are too scared.

This is a normal post I used to know a lad who stole for a 'living'
He'd openly break into cars etc. and when I asked him about getting challenged he said that he figured his motivation to get away would far outweigh anything a passer-by would be prepared to do to stop him

This is a normal post I was once arrested in Amsterdam for throwing bikes into the canals
I was released a few hours later with a stern telling off. Not the highlight of my career but I assure you it was entirely drug fuelled.

This is a normal post The next day I saw a canal boat with a crane on it scooping out all the bikes.
There was fucking loads of them no doubt thrown in by twatty English like me.
