    I was working in China earlier in the year and was watching the local TV.

    They had a program that seemed to be locals setting up a sting to catch bike thieves. Home video catches someone cutting a lock, then three people running over, flooring the guy, giving him a bit of a shoeing and slap about, then sat on him until the old bill arrived.

    The cops turned up, gave the thief another shoeing then took him away.

    They caught loads of thieves like this. Didn’t understand a word of it, but it was great TV!

    Unfortunatly I’m not a magistrate so am unable to inflict the dire punishment I said above, so I’d resort to one of these for chopping em up instead

    Anyone seen “Law Abiding Citizen” ?

    Seriously though – aside from physical abuse, maiming and death they should have at least have posters of them up where people park their bikes “asbo style” to make people think about locking up more effectively and to get them noticed.

    ยฃ50 fine, sounds generous!

    Seeing as it took me more than 10 years to get back into biking after some nice chap thought he liked the look of my Giant more than anything else chained up in the middle of Bristol, and I’m only now realising how much great trail riding I’ve missed out on in that time, I’d say an equal term would be fair plus compensation by way of a new bike.

    But torture works for me too…

    Force them to ride a bike with no saddle, naked with no lube.

    Wee in shoes for a starter, followed by a good seeing to with a pair of bombers. Then a bit of boarding…rip heart out and show it to him just before he croaks.

    I’m normally quite well adjusted but have had a bike nicked…

    chaining them to the post where they nicked the bike, until someone comes along and sets them free, or just douse them in petrol and set them alight whilst still there….. sorry been in China too long

    make them do without a piece of kit that is as precious to them as the bike is to the owner. So their satellite TV then.

    There was a great video on YouTube where some guys in New York set up a sting; locked up a bike and waited til some thieving scrote came along then grabbed him and chained him to a lamp-post and hung a big sign round his neck saying “I’m a bike thief”, then they left him there

    Apparently, the guy nearly got lynched by various passers by so they had to free him after an hour or so.

    They would only do it twice though,unless they are good at riding no handed then you start on the feet ,or blinding them ,yes !that would work

    give them the bikes they’ve stolen, surely (and i think the police agree) once they’ve got a bike they wont need to steal another one?

    and i think its only fair they have their benefits increased as its obvious they’re running low on cash.

    As someone who asked if torture was ever justified, in the case of bike thieves, there should be an exception. First apply a pair of oversize crocodile clips using a modified set of jump leads, making sure that there’s a really strong spring action clamping the jaws shut. Then clamp them to each b***ock so that the oval ‘nads begin to take on a “figure of eight” outline as the jaws of the clamps squeeze tight on each of the twins. Then connect the testicles to the national grid via a rheostat. Gradually crank up the voltage beyond the point of burning flesh until they go pop and splatter testicular material on every vertical surface within 500 yards. By now, the clamps will be attached to a smoking thread of sinew dangling between the legs. Crank up the voltage further, until the smoking sinew glows white hot and starts to crackle, fizz and pop. Then ask the scoundrel where your bike is and gradually crank up the voltage incrementally with each incorrect answer. I’ll wager that your bike will be back in your hands, lubed, waxed, polished and serviced within a short space of time….well as quickly as is humanly possible with a crotch like a flame grilled whopper.

    Ah, bless…

    Personally, I’d want to look into reasons why they feel the need to steal bicycles, and address the underlying problems which drive them to crime. By using empathy and organising outdoor activity holidays and go-karting to help them to open up and discuss their issues, I’d hope to seek opportunities for their effective rehabilitation, so that they can go on to have a positive future, rather than feeling alienated and disenfranchised. Because ultimately, it’s not their fault; they’re victims of their circumstances. Nurture, not Punishment.

    If they touch my bike I’ll kick their ****ing heads in though.

    Tinners; you’ve thought about this one perhaps just a little too much… ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
