Is It Impossible to Track Down a Stolen Bike?

This is a nice change of pace from all those evening news segments about how to beat parking tickets (some of which may have been written by this road-raging sociopath).

Howard Thompson, of "Help Me Howard" fame, filed an item on last night's PIX news about how hard it is to get the police to take bike theft seriously. The victim he profiles, Tadree Coppedge, was able to obtain security cam footage of the theft after cops at the 9th Precinct rebuffed her request for help. Now, Thompson reports, two detectives are looking into it.

Good to know those cams are trained at the right angle, since it seems no one on the street notices this stuff.
