I love this quote she got from Corey (the guy that confronted the thief):
“My whole theory on violence is, if you don’t want to deal with physical conflict, don’t bring it on yourself. If you don’t want to get your ass kicked, don’t steal bikes.”
Exposure for the Stolen Bike Listings is awesome and will lead to even more bikes being recovered. We need as many people as possible listing and viewing bikes and someday thieves will be too scared to steal.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
