I like this little story from the Bike Portland blog. Made me smile.

A less lucky "beat down"undies said:A couple months ago I caught a teenager riding my son's recently stolen bike. I recovered the bike and beat his ass down.
The guy in that story has a lot more against him than just his beat down. That's a bad person that just happens to be a police officer. Carrying around a badge that belongs to another officer, on a different department? Wow, the stories that guy could probably tell.Midwestern Biker Dude said:A less lucky "beat down"
Beat down, word... Reminds me of my younger days, but I was never cool enough to risk going to jail over a bike. We are just one impulse from throwing our lives into total chaos.
I don't think I would be up for the $150 either, but it does represent a day in the Northwest and the some of the people who live there. Maybe you have to live there for a while to think it is funny or at least ironic?
Well I certainly didn't beat anyone unconscious. All I did was physically remove him from the bicycle. I have not studied my state's citizens arrest/use of force laws for a couple of years, but I am pretty sure I was in the right as far as the law was concerned.Midwestern Biker Dude said:A less lucky "beat down"
I live about 75 miles south of Portland and I still think the guy who gave the thief $150 is an idiot....but it does represent a day in the Northwest and the some of the people who live there. Maybe you have to live there for a while to think it is funny or at least ironic?
